Adding Your Own Cart Link / Button
You can easily turn any link or button or HTML element on your website into a cart open button. Simply add this class to the element:
For example, you can add the class to menu items:
If you don’t see CSS Classes as an option, click on ‘Screen Options’ top right and toggle the option for CSS Classes:
If you can’t easily add a class to an element, we have provided another way to tell CheckoutWC about your button. Using this WordPress filter you can specify as many additional buttons as you would like:
The filter receives a string which is a CSS selector that is passed to jQuery. This will make it possible to select any element on the page.
Side Cart Launcher
We also have a shortcode for outputting a cart icon + quantity anywhere you would like.
