WooCommerce Advanced Product Quantities [wpbo_quantity_message] Shortcode

The ‘wpbo_quantity_message’ shortcode from the Woocommerce Incremental Product Quantities plugin is designed to display a note about the minimum quantity of a product. This shortcode retrieves the product’s data, checks if it’s in stock, and then fetches the minimum quantity rule. It also checks if the product is under stock management and adjusts the minimum and maximum values accordingly. If the product is out of stock, it applies a different rule. The shortcode then replaces placeholders in the text with the calculated values and displays the message. It also allows for an optional custom class to be added for styling purposes.

Shortcode: [wpbo_quantity_message]

Examples and Usage

Basic example – Displays a note for the minimum quantity of the product on a product page.


Advanced examples

Displaying a note with custom class for styling. This will allow you to apply custom CSS to the note. You need to replace ‘my_custom_class’ with your actual CSS class.

[wpbo_quantity_message class="my_custom_class"]

Using the shortcode to display a note with custom text. The text should be placed in the ‘text’ parameter. You can use %MIN%, %MAX%, and %STEP% placeholders in your text, which will be replaced with actual values. For example:

[wpbo_quantity_message text="The minimum quantity for this product is %MIN%, maximum - %MAX%, step - %STEP%."]
Please note that these examples are based on the assumption that the ‘wpbo_quantity_message’ shortcode supports ‘class’ and ‘text’ parameters. The actual implementation may vary depending on the plugin’s code.
