WooCommerce 2.6.2 Fix Release Notes

The WooCommerce 2.6.2 fix release is now available. You can download it on WordPress.org or as an automatic update in your administration panel.

~140 commits made it into this release fixing several minor issues and making some smaller tweaks. The main fixes/updates are as follows.

  • We’ve made the password reset process redirect to the form and set a cookie containing the reset token and username to prevent password tokens being leaked via the page’s referer headers.
  • Some users didn’t like the change showing ‘in stock’ when not managing stock levels. Due to this we’ve made it so ‘in stock’ in hidden when not managing stock levels, but ‘out of stock’ is shown when that status is explicitly set.
  • We’ve improved the coupon logic so that product coupons not valid for the current cart are not applied, rather than just having no discount value.
  • We’ve made some tweaks the descriptions on the zones screen, and made it so zones can match postcodes without having a country assigned to them. Also, if no locations are set on a zone, it will now be listed as being for ‘everywhere’.
  • To allow my account page tabs to be disabled without code, you can now set the endpoint value to a blank string.

  1. Hi,
    What is “* Tweak – Allow external product SKUs.”

    1. External products had their SKU field hidden.

  2. I noticed that regardless of if you sell downloads or not this tab is still shown in the account screen – it also does not degrade for mobile.. Surly it would make more sense to have the a mobile version shown depending of how the user is browsing the site.

    Just my two cents – otherwise still an exceptional plugin.
