It is always recommended to add the custom hooks to your theme’s child theme. If you are not sure what a child theme is, please read this article.

Astra theme custom hooks

Changing the WooCommerce Shop sidebar widget tag

The following custom hook will change the shop sidebar widget title tag to H4. This function is normally used to change the heading tag of the widget title to avoid duplicate headings which in turn increases the SEO score of a webpage or blog.To use this code, simply copy it and paste it at the bottom of the function.php file of your child theme.

add_filter( 'astra_woocommerce_shop_sidebar_init', 'widget_title_tag', 10, 1 );
 
function widget_title_tag( $atts ) {
    $atts['before_title'] = '<h4 class="widget-title">';

Hide the quantity of the shopping cart when the cart is empty.

This custom function will hide the quantity of the items when the cart is empty. Ideally without the code, the cart will display “0” when it is empty; however, when you add the following code to the function.php file of your child theme, the display will be blank. Here is a complete article about the same.

add_filter('astra_woo_header_cart_total', 'remove_cart_count');
function remove_cart_count( $default){
    if(0 == WC()->cart->get_cart_contents_count()){
        return false;
    }else{
        return $default;
    }
}

This is how it will be displayed on the front end of the website:

By default the WooCommerce have named the cart as the shopping cart. To change this text there are no options inside the theme or the plugin.This custom hook will let you change the shopping cart text to anything that you would like to. Just replace the text “My Shop Flyout Cart” to any text that you would like to set up.

add_filter( 'astra_header_cart_flyout_shopping_cart_text', function() {
