    Started working on the WooCommerce stuff. Activated the plugin and received this message:

    Your theme (Somapro Child) contains outdated copies of some WooCommerce template files. These files may need updating to ensure they are compatible with the current version of WooCommerce. You can see which files are affected from the system status page. If in doubt, check with the author of the theme.

    I looked through the documentation but updating looks like a pretty big task. Any shortcuts?

    Hi Rich,

    The current version of Somapro (v 1.1.7) does not show any message of Woocommerce compatibility. I guess you have copied some files from the previous version of your child theme. What you can do is you can look into the parent theme Woocommerce folder and make changes according to it in your child theme

    Let me know if you need more help

    Best Regards

    “What you can do is you can look into the parent theme Woocommerce folder and make changes according to it in your child theme”

    Not sure what that means or where to begin.

    Can I just update to the latest version of the theme? I thought that was the whole benefit of using a child theme, being able to update the parent without losing customization.

    I did make the changes to the parent theme you suggested here (which worked great):

    Header widget?

    I assume I can go back and re-do them once I’ve updated to the current theme?

    Hi Rich,

    The whole idea of a child theme is that you are free to customize your code without worrying about the parent theme changes, but as the Woocommerce plugin keeps updating itself, we need to make sure it’s compatible with our theme also so we have to keep a check on that also. The code you copied to child theme earlier is for the older version of Woocommerce, so it needs to get updated too if there is a new version of Woocommerce

    Makes sense. Can I get around this by

    saving the CSS in my current child theme
    update parent theme
    copy my CSS into either a new child theme or “Simple CSS” plugin

    Seems like the plugin would be the way to go forward…then no issues with future updates?

    Would that make sense?

    Thanks.

    Hi Rich,

    why you have copied the Woocommerce folder to child theme. I don’t think that you need to do that if you are not changing any functions of these files.

    You’re right! WooCommerce was NOT in the child theme as the notice said it was.

    Makes the fix pretty easy. Thanks.
