Get to Know Your WooCommerce Order Status Definitions

When reviewing or fulfilling an order, you will notice each order has a status that reflects where the order is in your order fulfillment pipeline.  There are quite a few options for an order’s status, some are modified manually by you the Shop Manager, while others are changed by the order system itself.

Here are the status definitions for reference:

  • Pending – Order received (unpaid)
  • Failed – Payment failed or was declined (unpaid)
  • Processing – Payment received and stock has been reduced- the order is awaiting fulfilment
  • Completed – Order fulfilled and complete – requires no further action
  • On-Hold – Awaiting payment – stock is reduced, but you need to confirm payment
  • Cancelled – Cancelled by an admin or the customer – no further action required
  • Refunded – Refunded by an admin – no further action required

Missing parts of your styles.css? Check this first.

Are you working on a website and the style.css you’re pulling from the server is truncated, missing pieces or different in some way different than what you expected?

Double check which server you are connecting to.  You may find that you’re pulling code from a development environment or an old, no longer used server.  In that case, update your server information in your editor or FTP program to the live site credentials, if you’re making changes to a site in production.

Need help making changes to your site styles and CSS, or just need some professional help updating your website?  Whether you’re based locally in Portland, Oregon or across the globe, Bozz Media would like to help.

BOZZ FIX: Fatal error: Call to undefined function thematic_canonical_url()

If you use thematic child themes and receive the following error on WordPress 3.4 & Thematic upgrades

Call to undefined function thematic_canonical_url() .. line 25 ..

the function was deprecated and is no longer necessary, but it may still be lingering in your child theme’s header.php file.

In your child theme header.php file, delete the following from lines 24-25

    // Creating the canonical URL
thematic_canonical_url();

Now you should be back in business!
