WooCommerce Cart Icon with Item Count on Divi Theme

Today I was trying to look for how to add an item count to the shopping cart on the Divi theme, I couldn’t find exactly what I was looking for although I did manage to find a few examples on StackOverflow and other websites that work with woocommerce on other themes but on divi it did not work at all.

After searching the divi support forum and documentation I did manage to find a few articles that were exactly what I was looking for however the articles are for members only. Being a freelancer I may have to work with any themes or plugins my clients may have on their website as it was in this case.

So instead of contacting my client and going through email hell for my client and myself, I started taking a look into the header.php file in the Divi Theme – thankfully one of my first tasks when taking on the client was to create a child theme.

After looking for a minute I finally found what I was looking for and luckily it was a very simple change to display the item count on the shopping cart icon on the menu.

First, you’ll need to copy the header.php file from the divi theme into your divi-child theme then on or around Line 285 you’ll find an array with:

'no_text' => true,

You’ll need to change the true to false

'no_text' => false,

Save the header.php file.

Making the change on the child theme is important so any future updates to the divi theme won’t overwrite any changes previously made.

After this small change, you’ll see the number of items next to the cart icon on the main navigation menu, you may have to style the icon and text a little bit, but for the most part its there.

How to sort WooCommerce Products (2019)

Recently I was trying to sort some products on WooCommerce for one of my clients and ended up doing a quick little Google search. I found all the top search results were pretty outdated, most of the posts were from 2015. WooCommerce has been through a few updates since then and the process to sort the products on the shop page is different.

In WooCommerce 3.7 to sort the products on the shop page is super simple you  just have to go to:

Products > All Products > Sorting

Then you can drag and drop how you want the products to display on the shop page.

And thats it.
