Add custom fields to WooCommerce Products using ACF

A pretty common request for WooCommerce sites is the need to include additional field inputs on the single product page and output them on the front-end. I’m going to explain how to do this using the excellent Advanced Custom Fields plugin (free version).

There will be a little bit of coding involved but don’t worry, it’s all very straightforward. And there’s the added satisfaction of knowing you can now extend WooCommerce in a powerful way.

I’ll explain a number of different use-cases with examples for each. I’ll be using our Shoptimizer WooCommerce theme but the code snippets should work for any WooCommerce theme.

With the right single product gallery plugin, you can enhance the visual appearance of your online store and make your product pages look pleasant and appealing. It’s also a great way to help customers make an informed buying decision.

Here’s why:

If you sell products that need multiple images to best showcase them such as t-shirts (you want to show the front and back), shoes (different angles), and computer mice (you want to show the top view and side views), you need a good single product gallery plugin to help you display WooCommerce product galleries on the single product page in a user-friendly way. This way, you’ll be able to make your products look more attractive.

Google will roll out its Page Experience update algorithm in 2021 that will factor in page experience as a ranking signal.

5 Multilingual Plugins for your Website

If you find yourself reading this article, you’ve probably been wondering what is the best of the numerous WordPress multilingual plugins out there.

Translating your website is a surprisingly easy way to reach and attract new audiences and scale into new markets by offering additional languages on your site. It might be tempting to keep your website in its original language (most likely English), however you might be interested to learn that only a quarter of Internet users communicate in English.

It’s also unlikely that a non native English speaker will engage with your website because alarmingly 72% of website visitors spend most or all of their time on websites in their own language.

However for WordPress users there isn’t actually a built-in feature – you’ll need to install a WordPress multilingual plugin to achieve a fully translated website.

Luckily there are a number of excellent multilingual plugins to choose from that easily allow you to add multiple languages to your website. In this article we’ll take a look at what you should be looking for when selecting a WordPress multilingual plugin, plus show you five popular plugins, to help you choose the one that best fits your needs.
