working - wordpress custom api plugin




wooCommerce custom end points (2)

But they seem to take no effect. Have i put them in the correct directory? Am I soppose to call these classes somewhere else ? I have no idea where I going wrong. Can some please educate me on this matter.

First thing, you created a class, but you never loaded that file or initiated the class. The best way to do this would be in your own plugin.

Second, you have to add the add_rewrite_endpoint() to the install function. Otherwise, it doesn't know to register the new endpoint and your rewrite rules are flushed, but end up exactly the same as they were before... which creates some 404 errors.

Third, recent WooCommerce provides a filter for the endpoint title. And the content doesn't need to reproduce the My Account div or navigation.

Tested and working:

I am a fairly new PHP developer and what I am trying to create is a custom endpoint for the "myaccount" page . I am trying to create a "Add Guest" end point. I am finding it very difficult to find any documentation online. What I have done so far is used this git hub repo

https://gist.github.com/neilgee/13ac00c86c903c4ab30544b2b76c483c/a43701564ab696e1586e2879591c890b67a5f1bf#file-woo-endpoints-order-php

I created these files and put them in the plugins/woocommerce/includes directory. But they seem to take no effect. Have i put them in the correct directory? Am I soppose to call these classes somewhere else ? I have no idea where I going wrong. Can some please educate me on this matter.

wc_get_template returning null

You are passing the wrong arguments to wc_get_template().

  1. $template_name is the full name so myaccount/student-details.php
  2. $template_path is an empty string. Usually, WC will look in the theme's woocommerce folder
  3. $default_path this is the path to your plugin's templates. In this case add a templates folder into the root folder of the plugin I created for you in your original question

Here's the updated function:

/**
 * Endpoint HTML content.
 */
public function endpoint_content() {    

    // The template name. 
    $template_name = 'myaccount/student-details.php'; 

    // default args
    $args = array(); 

    // default template
    $template_path = ''; // use default which is usually "woocommerce"

    // default path (look in plugin file!)
    $default_path = untrailingslashit( plugin_dir_path(__FILE__) ) . '/templates/';

    // call the template
    wc_get_template($template_name, $args, $template_path, $default_path);

}

And here's a sample template wc-your-custom-endpoint-plugin/templates/student-details.php:

<?php
/**
 * Template
 * 
 * @author      Kathy Darling
 * @package     WC_Custom_Endpoint/Templates
 * @version     0.1.0
 */

if ( ! defined( 'ABSPATH' ) ) exit; // Exit if accessed directly
?>

<?php do_action( 'wc_custom_endpoint_before_student_details' ); ?>

<p><?php _e( 'Hello World!', 'wc-custom-endpoint' ); ?><p>

<?php do_action( 'wc_custom_endpoint_after_student_details' ); ?>
