Common errors after customization
The cart page customization steps in WooCommerce seems easy. But, the WooCommerce site users face certain errors on this. Let’s discuss some common errors and their respective fixes.
1. 404 Error
Recently, one of our customers approached us with the WooCommerce cart page showing a 404 error.
The error occurred due to the incorrect set up of the permalinks.
So, at first, our Support Engineers navigated to the WordPress dashboard settings>>permalinks. Then, we checked and resaved the permalinks.
After reloading, the WooCommerce cart page started working fine.
2. Code Errors
Similarly, code errors are also common while customizing cart pages. Usually, customers use the is_woocommerce() conditional tag to change the appearance of the cart page.
But, this doesn’t work with the cart page and shows an error. This is because is_woocommerce( ) tag changes the appearance of pages that use WooCommerce templates.
But, the Woocommerce cart pages are standard pages with shortcodes. Therefore, is_woocommerce( ) cannot change the appearance of the cart page.
