WooCommerce Blocks 7.6.0 Release Notes

A new version of WooCommerce Blocks has been released! Version 7.6.0 is now available for download from GitHub and WordPress.org. WooCommerce Blocks 7.6.0 will also be included in WooCommerce 6.6.

In this release, we have worked hard to improve some of our blocks, adding new features and fixing bugs.

Top of the list are the improvements we made to the Featured Category and Featured Product Blocks, these are:

  • Ability to set the background colour on the block and with global styles in the appearance editor
  • Ability to edit background images from within the block, including an ability to crop, zoom, rotate or change aspect ratio of an image.
  • Ability to add custom “alt” text on the background image.

We also added the ability to disable images on Product Grid blocks, these are:

  • Hand-picked Products
  • Products by Tag
  • Products by Attribute
  • Products by Category
  • Best Selling Products
  • Newest Products
  • On Sale Products
  • Top Rated Products

We also fixed some bugs in three of our blocks:

  • Reviews by Category Block will now correctly list only reviews for selected categories if multiple categories were selected
  • Mini Cart Block can now be inserted into the template when opening the template editor from the page editor sidebar.
  • Filter Products by Attribute Block will now work correctly with the Product Catalogue template when inserted on the page in the template editor.

Finally, we also removed the Product Tag Cloud widget.

Dev notes

Due to a bug in WP Core (which was fixed in WordPress/WordPress@257b634), current_theme_supports-{*} filters aren’t applied if there is no argument passed to current_theme_supports(). The Template panel relies on supportsTemplateMode setting which is set by current_theme_supports( 'block-templates' ) WordPress 6.0 will fix this.
