This release contains:

As always, we recommend creating a backup of your site and making sure that your theme and any other plugins are compatible before updating. You can check out this update guide for more information.

What’s new in 7.0?

WooCommerce Filter UI Updates

As part of our objective to provide a seamless out-of-the-box experience with product filters, we have updated the existing filter block UI for a cleaner look and feel and have added a new “Reset” feature for each filter.

Product Search is now a variation of the WordPress core Search block

Given the power that Gutenberg block variations offer, we have refactored the Product Search block to be a variation of the WordPress core Search block. That means you have many more customization options now: hiding the label/button, modifying their text, changing the styles, etc.

In order to have the new Product Search available, you will need to have Gutenberg installed. This will also work with the next version of WordPress (6.1).

You can easily update existing instances of the Product Search block to this new block variation from the editor.

Cart & Checkout Blocks: Make the current page into the default cart/checkout pages notice

We’ve created a notice that, without leaving the current page, changes it to the default cart or checkout page.

Mobile App “Magic Link”: It’s now easier to sign-in into the mobile app. From the Help toolbar menu in WooCommerce > Home, click “Get the WooCommerce app” and follow the prompts to send a magic link to the email account on your device.

Multichannel Marketing Experience (Beta)

We are developing a new multichannel marketing experience in WooCommerce. The Marketing page has gone through a UI revamp which will display recommended marketing extensions organized by categories.

To start using this new experience, head over to WooCommerce Settings > Advanced > Features page, and check the “Marketing” checkbox.

More features will be added to this new Multichannel Marketing experience. Stay tuned.

Thank you for the quick overview. I am very happy of the update for the product filters.

What would be great for the future concerning the search: to manage some options here. Like searching for the whole term or not – will I get “searching” as a result, when only looking for an “ear”, for example?

Thank you! (-;

I have a question about filtering, one thing that lacks is dynamic filters, such as those found in shopify or prestashop, with woo I have to buy a plugin for these filters to work. Will it ever be a default feature in Woo?

By dynamic filters I mean that we can filter only the results in each product category instead of filtering results for the whole store.

The new filter system has an incompatibility with pagination. If I’m on the second page and try to filter, it gives me a 404 page, I think it’s a problem with the url.
