Information Badge Rules
Having the possibility to create unlimited badges please follow the rules below:
1.The text badge once created can be changed/modified only as text badge . The text badge can not be transformed to an image badge .
2.The image/preset badge once created can be changed/modified only as image/preset badge . The image/preset badge can not be transformed to a text badge .
3.Trash and delete the unused badges to don’t have confusion in your store .
4.The own product badge have the power to overwrite any other badge .
5.The product it is assigned to one or more categories , in case that to the product itself it is assigned a badge as own badge , the product will recognize only this badge , and not the category badge .
Be careful when assign badges to categories .
Example : If a product belongs to 3 categories A ,B ,C and each of those categories will have a badge assigned:
Category A – Red Badge
Category B – Blue Badge
Category C – Green Badge
The product itself being part of 3 categories each one with a different badge – will not display any badge .Because can not recognize which one to use .In those cases the solution it is to assign to those products the own badge manually .
6.The time related badge overwrites the category badge .
Check the examples/scenarios below:
Few Examples scenarios using the Badges
Badge with all the categories Selected – Time Limit 7 days .
This Badge overwrites all the existing Badges for the products of 7 days old.
Once the Badge expired will be displayed the other active badges .
Own product Badge Time Limit – empty = never expire
Product with Own badge older than 7 days will displays his Own Badge .
NO CATEGORY SELECTED
Own product Badge overwrites the Category Badge .
Category Badge – Time Limit – empty = never expire
All the Products of the selected category/categories which doesn’t have an own badge .
and are older than 7 days it displays the category badge.
Clients Question: Why I don’t See the Badge
Be Sure that you have Saved to the Display Settings choosing Yes for both options .
Be Sure that you have assigned the Badge Created to a Products Category which have products inside.
If you don’t desire to use the category – Be sure that you have the badge assigned at least to one product .
Be sure that you have removed the day limit for the badge , if you are not using this feature.The default Value it is 22 days .
Be sure that you have cleaned the cache (website cache , server cache , browser cache).
In same Rare Cases the Badge doesn’t Appear to a website .
This happen because the theme used have custom woocommerce files templates .
In those files the original hooks of the woocommerce plugin are not used .
As the Badge Plugin it is using few of those hooks which in your theme woo theme files may be it is missing .
Exist a way to fix it by adding a shortcode to the woo theme files .
The shortcode to be added it is the below :
<?php gema75_show_product_loop_new_badge (); ?>
You Need to identify the file which display the products and add this line before the title code .
Usually the file for the catalog view it is located to your theme folder in the woocommerce /content-product.php
and for the single product view the file is woocommerce /content-single-product.php .
In same cases the theme developers use even other files depending on how they code the theme .
