Hi, Mike Jolley.

Looks WC 2.3 assets/css source used .scss not .less method?

Did you will includes .less source as before WC 2.2 used method? Because of we already used less for theme as before you used. Please tell us about it so that we can test the 2.3 version. I think more user all have the same question as .scss replace .less.



Because of we use less.php to use your .less css automatic generation new css when user change setting through WP admin options.

We used your .less control like button default color etc variables … If have no .less file just css file will very difficult global change wc style variables.

Thank u understand me and add .less for user global change variables.


Please bring back the option to disable enhanced select boxes. This is breaking my theme and causing no end of headaches. Why on earth would you remove this option?

Woocommerce is a great plugin, but it seems every new version breaks something for no good reason.


can’t say this is the proper way to do this…but it worked for me. wish that option was still there in the admin though. silly to remove in my opinion.

function my_dequeue_script() {

add_action( ‘wp_print_scripts’, ‘my_dequeue_script’, 100 );
