WooCommerce Blocks 11.7.0 Release Notes

The latest version of WooCommerce Blocks, version 11.7.0, is now available for download on WordPress.org and GitHub.

Keep in mind that this is the last major release of WooCommerce Blocks as in the future it will be part of the WooCommerce Monorepo. You can read more about it and how it might impact you in the developer advisory: “WooCommerce Blocks Merging into the WooCommerce Monorepo“.

Notable Changes

Mini-Cart block automatically injected to header patterns and template-parts

Thanks to Block Hooks API, the Mini-Cart block is now automatically injected into the WooCommerce header patterns and template-parts by default. It appears next to the navigation and adjusts to the header layout but you can move it around or remove it if you like.

Please check a short video presenting where to look for header patterns with a Mini-Cart block.

For now, Mini-Cart is automatically injected only in the Twenty Twenty-Four theme but we can expand the list of themes this supports in future iterations.

Rename the Product Collection “Shrink columns to fit” option to “Responsive” and enable it by default

Recently, we added a “Shrink columns to fit” option in the Product Collection block. This makes your product grid responsive. The option has now been renamed to “Responsive” which we found to better explain its purpose.

You can still find it in Product Collection’s inspector controls, next to the “Columns” setting:

Another important change is this option is now enabled by default for newly added Product Collection blocks!

Hook woocommerce_single_product_summary action to core/post-excerpt block

Use woocommerce_single_product_summary action to extend your Single Product template. The hook is attached to the Post Excerpt block so the content you’d like to display on Single Product template will appear above the Product Summary which is a variation of Post Excerpt block.

To make it work, add an action like:

add_action('woocommerce_single_product_summary', function() {
	echo 'woocommerce_single_product_summary';

and the content will appear on the Single Product pages like this:
