How to remove bread crumbs in WooCommerce

All installation of WooCommerce by default includes bread crumb functionality, also known as breadcrumbs ] in English

In principle its usefulness is beyond doubt, and even its virtues as an element of SEO optimization because at all times the route that a client has followed up to the place of your online store where you are, and therefore will allow you to return easily.

<p> Hence the name of <strong> crumbs of bread </strong>like the ones used by <em> Tom Thumb </em> from the story not to get lost. </p>
<p> Come on, that's a good thing, normally, so <strong> why remove the bread crumbs? </strong> which is what we are going to see today </p>
<p> Well, because in an online store there is another concept called <strong><em> vanishing points </em></strong> which are all those links or distractions that could cause a client is confused and does not finish a purchase process. </p>
<p> When I talk about <strong><em> vanishing points </em></strong>  I mean almost anything that can distract you from adding a product to the cart, or worse, finishing the purchase , that is, menus, sidebars, or breadcrumbs. </p>
<p> So, that if you want to have your online store fully optimized to avoid <strong><em> vanishing points </em></strong>and you do not mind sacrificing some SEO to get a sale (what a difficult choice huh ?!), you can make crumbs disappear adding the following code to your <a href= customizations plugin or to the file functions.php of the subject ( son, if possible )

Save the changes and breadcrumbs will no longer be seen, a less distraction for your customers. You will already be interested in attracting them to products from your store with other strategies, such as the grouped products that we saw the other day.


As you remember me @ humprh3y ] this is if you have active WooCommerce, otherwise the function will give you an error. Always remember to insert WordPress functions correctly .

Integrate Magento in WordPress • WordPress Help

If you are a user of Magento that wonderful software to create online stores, I'm sure that more than once you've thought of if it would be possible to integrate it with WordPress . And I do not mean to unify the design, which is relatively easy with a bit of HTML, or improve the positioning of the online store with a WordPress blog something obvious, but to manage the panel shopping and more Magento stuff from the same WordPress .

Well it's possible thanks to WordGento (okay, the name is ugly from noses), a plugin created by Tristar ] with which integrate any of the default Magento blocks (cart, links, navigation, etc.) into your WordPress theme.

Let's see how it is used …

1. Installation

The first thing is to deactivate a Magento function that conflicts with WordPress

  1. Browse to locate the file ~ / tu-magento / app / code / core / Mage / Core / functions.php
  2. Copy the file functions.php and paste it in ~ / tu-magento / app / code / local / Mage / Core / functions.php. Magento will now use this functions.php file instead of the one located in the Core folder.
  3. On line 90 (approximately, it is not fiji) you will find this code:
  4. You have to replace it with this other:
  5. Save the changes

Once done, you are ready to install the plugin. If you install it from the WordPress installer skip to step 3.

  1. Download the plugin and extract the files
  2. Upload wordgento to your folder ~ / wp-content / plugins /.
  3. Activate the plugin in WordPress
  4. Go to the WordGento settings page (you will see the new element in the adminstration main menu)
  5. Enter the path of your Magento installation from the root folder
  6. Enter the name of the Magento theme you are using
  7. Enter the site code if you have more than one active store
  8. Save the settings and follow the instructions for use

2. Usage

Currently there are 13 different blocks in a usual Magento installation. The codes to use would be the following:

3. Things to keep in mind

  1. Make sure you define the cookie paths in Magento. If your installation of magenta is in a subfolder go to the administration of Magento. Navigate to System -> Configuration -> Web -> Session Cookie Management ( System -> Configuration -> Web -> Session Cookie Management if you have it in English). Set the cookie path to / and set the domain of the cooke to
  2. Be sure to turn off the __ () function in Magento

4. Common problems

  1. Wordgento does not like the WordPress plugin called Tumblrize!
  2. Wordgento does not like the cForms plugin either!
  3. It's better not to use WordPress cache plugins since they can also cache the session current Magento client.

5. Future

The author wants that the blocks created by us can be added in the next version of WordGento. For example, if you have created your own topcart.phtml block in Magento, you can add it in Wordgento and claim it to be displayed in WordPress.

As you can see it is a quite complete and interesting solution for to integrate Magento and WordPress . If you prefer a "reverse" option, you can try Magento Connect, an extension for Magento that looks the same but otherwise.
