It’s been a busy month for us here at Iconic. We’ve been prioritizing some key plugin updates to start the New Year off strongly.
As always, if you’d like to request future plugin updates and/or changes, you can submit a feature request. We review these regularly and the ones with the most votes, go to the top of the list.
If you want to jump ahead, you can check out specific plugin updates by clicking one of the links below:
Updates to WooCommerce Attribute Swatches
We just released version 1.5.0 of WooCommerce Attribute Swatches, and with it comes a key update:
Added price suffix support
Previously, if you added text to the suffix field in your WooCommerce tax settings, this text wouldn’t appear on the product page. Now, however, we’ve made sure it will.
Of course, that’s not all. We’ve made a number of other fixes and updates. You can read all of these in the WooCommerce Attribute Swatches Changelog.
How to get the updates
If you’re already using WooCommerce Attribute Swatches then you can update from the WordPress Dashboard as usual.
If not, you can get these new features by starting a free trial of WooCommerce Attribute Swatches:

Updates to Custom Fields for Variations
We just released version 1.3.0 of Custom Fields for Variations, and with it comes a useful update:
Added fields to the custom fields shortcode
WooCommerce Custom Fields for Variations has a shortcode you can use in your store to change where your custom fields appear.
This shortcode has just had an update. Now you can specify which fields you want to appear and you can show an entire custom field group. We’ve created a custom fields shortcode guide to walk you through this.
Of course, that’s not all. We’ve made a number of other fixes and updates. You can read all of these in the Custom Fields for Variations Changelog.

This month both WooCommerce Quickview and WooCommerce Show Single Variations have been updated to work well with Divi BodyCommerce. This means you can use both plugins with the WooCommerce customization plugin.
You can see all additional updates for these two plugins in their changelogs:

Wishlists for WooCommerce has also had an update this month, this time a compatibility update to help it work alongside the plugin WooCommerce Product Table.

New at Iconic HQ
Now for the exciting team news!
We’ve recently added a brand new member to our team. So we thought we’d introduce them to you with a few questions.
Introducing the newest member of the Iconic team, Ramon Ahnert
Since then, Ramon’s interest in computers increased and he moved on to earn a master’s degree in Computer Science. Ramon loves to contribute to open source projects like WordPress and learn new ways and approaches to solving problems.
When not working, Ramon can be found playing guitar, video games, listing to music, or spending time with his wife.
Hey Ramon, let’s lighten the mood – what’s one unusual thing about you?
I can skateboard. I’m a little rusty but I can at least ollie.
For the non-developers out there, how would you describe your role?
I like to say that I work creating things using the computer. However, these things can’t be touched or seen at the same time it’s real and affects the way we live and how we work. It’s like magic but (usually) less dangerously.
As the newest member of our team, what are you looking forward to most?
I’m looking forward to contributing to the team, fixing issues, creating new features, learning new things, improving our development process and tools we use to create and maintain our products. Also helping our clients to achieve their goals and have a great experience using our plugins. Last but not least, keeping fun in coding.
Go on, give us your best dad joke…
“I have always wished for my computer to be as easy to use as my telephone. My wish has come true because I can no longer figure out how to use my telephone”
That’s it for this month’s news from Iconic. If you have any questions about the updates, please leave us a comment. Oh, and say hi to Ramon – I’m sure he’d love to hear from you!
