WPTavern: WooCommerce 3.3.1 Released, Addresses Template Conflicts

WPTavern: WooCommerce 3.3.1 Released, Addresses Template Conflicts

WooCommerce 3.3.1 is available and fixes template conflicts discovered in a handful of WordPress themes that forced the team to revert WooCommerce 3.3. The team reviewed handful of the most common themes running WooCommerce and tested them for compatibility with 3.3.1.

WooCommerce developers recommend that theme authors use hooks instead of template overrides to ensure maximum compatibility.

According to Mike Jolley, WooCommerce lead developer, this release highlighted issues with the template system’s extensibility and a disconnect between theme authors on external marketplaces. “We hope to find solutions to these problems in the near future,” Jolley said.

WooCommerce 3.3.1 has at least 90 commits. Users are encouraged to create a full-backup of their sites and then browse to Dashboard > Updates to update WooCommerce from within WordPress.
