Hey BobWP here with your WooBits for January 14, 2022. Yes, I’m officially kicking off with the new format. A little more conversational, but bits and pieces of what I picked up around the WooCommerce ecosystem last week.

i want to mention it WooCommerce 6.1 came out with new versions of WooCommerce and admin blocks sewn into the core. And in the same vein, WooCommerce Blocks 6.7.1 was also released.

Speaking of blocks, head to the Jamie Marsland YouTube Channel as he released a video, he shows us how his Woo block plugin will now work with full site editor themes. But the juicy part is that it works on the WooCommerce product page. Yes, you heard right. Easier customizations directly in this native product page.

Oh, and a bit of rumble around contributing to WordPress and the elusive WordPress plugin store. It’s on Twitter and the Post Status Channel Slack, and you wonder why I mention it. Not for the drama, though in many ways it directly affects Woo. But interestingly, someone suggested a solution to that elusive WordPress plugin store. They said why not build it on the WooCommerce Marketplace. Well, think about it. I was a bit taken aback by the comment and it will give you something to think about the next time you are in the shower.

And on another topic, when I announced on Twitter that my site was going to be down for a bit while I was moving servers around, someone asked me if that was the reason their Woo store wasn’t working. It made my day as I didn’t realize the power that Do the Woo inadvertently has over Woo stores around the world.

Well, moving forward with WooBits, I hope to stumble upon more WooCommerce Coins throughout the week. As you can see, I didn’t hit my toe on the big events. But rest assured, I’ll make this WooBit an art and you can barely wait to hit that play button every week.

Oh, and by the way. If you are a friend of the Do the Woo community, or think about being one, you will have the opportunity to sponsor our weekly WooBits at a very affordable and user-friendly price.

So that’s it. At least you heard some new music and a little Woo. See you around the corner next week.
