WooCommerce 7.5.0 Introduces 3 New Blocks, Expands Support for Global Styles

WooCommerce 7.5.0 was released this week with three new blocks for the Product Archive templates. These include a new Store Breadcrumb block, Product Results Count block, and a Catalog Sorting block, all seen in action below.

These blocks were released as part of an effort to “blockify” Product Archive templates so that they can more easily be customized with a block experience.

“We also want to account for the extensibility within this project by researching the mechanism for extensions to extend the templates and implementing a compatibility layer to keep as many extensions as possible working with blockified templates while giving time for extension developers to update and blockify their extensions,” WooCommerce engineer Tung Du said.

This project also includes support for a Notices block so merchants can display store notices to customers as well as determine where they appear.

WooCommerce 7.5.0 has expanded support for Global Styles, so that the Product Button, Product Rating, and Product Price blocks can now be customized more easily in the Site Editor. The Product Rating block now supports padding controls in Global Styles so that store owners can add more spacing around the blocks.

This release also brings in expanded support for the Style Book, which has been available since the WooCommerce Blocks 9.5.0 release. The Featured Product and Featured Category blocks can now be previewed in the Style Book and have Global Style changes applied.

WooCommerce 7.5.0 includes two database updates, 278 commits to WooCommerce Core, and rolls in 170 commits from the WooCommerce Blocks plugin.

  1. I upgraded the plugin and the database, and it turned all of my Products Add-Ons into lines and lines of question marks.

    WooCommerce strikes again!

    I’ll just restore my backup and continue on. I’ve already learned that there support is dismal; almost non-existent.

    • Hi Marcus. My name is Job and I lead Woo Support. I’ve tried to search for your name in our support tool, but couldn’t find it. Could you mention this thread in the interaction with us, and tell the Happiness Engineer to flag it to me. Let’s figure out what is happening and what we can do.

      I have tested with the latest version of WooCommerce and Product Add-ons, and on my site, it’s working as expected. That means we’ll need to figure out what on your site it is that causes the difference. (For reference, this is my test product: https://thomas.mystagingwebsite.com/product/beanie-with-logo/.)

      • Hello Job,

        The WooCommerce account is in our client’s name; not mine.

        I restored a backup (and because all of my plugins were set to enable updates) as soon as the backup completed it immediately re-upgraded the WooCommerce Add-ons plugin and the main WooCommerce plugin.

        To my surprise, after I decided to proceed with the database update; my many Add-On fields reappeared and all is well. No more question marks in place of the products add-ons on the front-end.

        Not sure what happened, but perhaps the 7.5 update went arwy??? Anyways, I learned my lesson, and I have shut off all WooCommerce plugin updates. I’ll manually apply them in the future as my client has a long-term contract with me.

        Thank you for your reply Job and for your offer for assistance.
