“a.cookie is not a function” error in WooCommerce 3.2.5

December 7, 2017

In the latest version of WooCommerce 3.2.5 (as of today), there is an error which may cause all of javascript code on your site to stop working. If you hit F12 to open the inspector window, you will see this message in the console log

Uncaught TypeError: a.cookie is not a function
at HTMLDocument. (cart-fragments.min.js?ver=2.6.14:1)
at i (jquery.js?ver=1.12.4:2)
at Object.fireWith [as resolveWith] (jquery.js?ver=1.12.4:2)
at Function.ready (jquery.js?ver=1.12.4:2)
at HTMLDocument.K (jquery.js?ver=1.12.4:2)

It’s not your fault or your theme, it’s related to WooCommerce. They have changed from jQuery Cookie to Vanilla JS Cookie https://github.com/js-cookie/js-cookie in to work with latest version of jQuery in WordPress 4.9+. The updated file is cart-fragments.min.js but tthe minified file (.min.js) is not re-minified. Only the raw file cart-fragments.js has the new code. To fix this error, you can open /woocommerce/assets/js/frontend/cart-fragments.js , copy all the code, and open an online minify tool such as https://www.minifier.org/  to get the minified code. Copy the minified code and replace all code in the .min.js file. Voala, it should work the issue.

An easier option: wait for WooCommerce to update  😉

Build a premium video content blog with VideoVIP wordpress theme

December 6, 2017

VideoVIP – Premium Video Content WordPress Theme – has just been released recently. It’s our third theme in the video-related category, beside VideoPro and TrueMag. It gives you another choice in building video site: simple to use, easy to setup, and complete package (ie. no extra plugins needed). The main idea of VideoVip is for selling Subscription: you have premium videos and users need to subscribe (pay per months or days) to view those content.

Subscrib to unlock

Subscrib to unlock

Why you need this theme when you can upload videos to YouTube or Vimeo and earn $$$ via ads? Well, first, you have full control of your site so you can upload any videos as you want. Second, YouTube and Vimeo do not give you solution to sell premium videos via subscription. Using VideoVIP on a WordPress site of your own, you have full control of your vdeos and setup payment as you want.

Here is how it works. You setup your payment gateway settings (only once when first install). You upload your premium videos and choose Lock to require subscription. Users who want to view Locked Videos need to subscribe to the payment plan. You can have both FREE and PREMIUM videos at the same time.

Easy to setup

VideoVIP supports YouTube, Vimeo and self-hosted videos. In general, you should use self-hosted videos (ie. upload your own video file to server) for Premium content. No one wants to pay for videos which they can watch for free from YouTube and Vimeo, right? (or do they?) Anyway, a normal scenario would be: you add free videos (from YouTube, Vimeo or upload your own videos) to build content and generate traffic. After having visitors, add premium videos and turn on subscription. This will be easy in VideoVIP as the package includes a video importer which can import videos from existing YouTube or Vimeo channels.

Locked Video

Locked Video

However, if you already have visitors (such as from your own YouTube channel), you can add only VIP videos on your site. It will be your premium content channel besides your free channels on YouTube. For example, a singer who wants his fan to subscribe and view newest videos can use VideoVIP for sure. Fan will have access to latest videos before other ones.

One more interesting thing in this theme is that, it supports various video player including JW Player, FV FlowPlayer, BZ Player and Elite Player. They have their own advertising network. So if you don’t want to sell subscription, you can also turn on advertising mode. That’s quite flexible, isn’t it?

Payment history

In our imagination, VideoVip is suitable for personal blogging, video bloggers, video producers, and content creators. However, we believe that you have more use-cases to apply to VideoVip. Please share your idea or suggestion so we can improve the theme.

WooCommerce 2.5.5 slows your site dramatically?

March 31, 2016

WooCommerce 2.5.5 slows your site, doesn’t it?

If you recently update WooCommerce 2.5.5 and you see that your site loads super slow, here’s what to check. The phenomenon is when you visit the site as guests, it loads slowly. If you login and try again, it works normally.

Go to WooCommerce Settings page > tag General > General Options > Default Custom Address
2016-03-31_095938

 

Check if this setting is set to Geolocate. When users (mostly guests) do checkout, WooCommerce will try to detect customer’s location using MaxMind GeoLite Database. If this feature doesn’t work well, it will effect your site response. So, try to change Default Custom Address to “No Address”.

Latest version WordPress 4.5 will be released in April, 2016

March 30, 2016

WordPress team is planning to release the latest version 4.5 in April, 2016. It will be named after a Jazz musician, whose name has not been mentioned yet. For end-users, there are 4 worth-mentioning points:

  1. Image generation works more efficiently.They promise that image thumbnails will be smaller as uneccessary meta will be removed. You can save up to 50% storage while keeping same quality
  2. Visual Editor is improved

    Not much information about this, but there are two more shortcuts which allow you to insert code and a <hr/> tag faster

    • Use `your code` to transform <code>my code</code>
    • Use --- to transform <hr />

    In addition, inline Link Editting allows you to insert link without opening a popup

    inline-link-editing

  3. Customizer is improved too

    The most significant feature is that you have the ability to preview your site in different screen sizes, so you can check if the theme works well in mobiles or tablets.
    device-preview
    In addition, although in Tweenty Sixteen theme, you have seen the logo upload feature. However, in WordPress 4.5 this feature is added by default.

  4. Comment form is refined

    Just a little change in the feature. The comment form now enforces the maximum length of each field and the Comment Moderate Screen is refined.

For developers, there aren’t many changes. Backbone and Underscore libraries are updated to latest version. Embed templates are splitted into parts and the term edit page changes (wp-admin/term.php is introduced). So I guess they don’t have to update their themes much.

You can see the Full changes list here: https://codex.wordpress.org/Version_4.5
