Important: First of all, you have to download and activate WooCommerce plugin, which is mandatory for YITH WooCommerce Cart Messages to be working.

  1. Unzip the downloaded zip file.
  2. Upload the plugin folder into the wp-content/plugins/ directory of your WordPress site.
  3. Activate YITH WooCommerce Cart Messages from Plugins page


YITH WooCommerce Cart Messages will add a new tab called “Cart Messsages” in “YIT Plugins” menu item. There, you will find all YITH plugins with quick access to plugin setting page.


Can I show the messages only in the cart page and not in the checkout?

In Yit Plugins->Cart Messages ->Settings page, you can choose where to show the messages.

What are the main changes in plugin translation?

Recently YITH WooCommerce Cart Messages has been selected to be included in the “translate.wordpress.org” translate programme.
In order to import correctly the plugin strings in the new system, we had to change the text domain form ‘yit’ to ‘yith-woocommerce-cart-messages’.
Once the plugin will be imported in the translate.wordpress.org system, the translations of other languages will be downloaded directly from WordPress, without using any .po and .mo files. Moreover, users will be able to participate in a more direct way to plugin translations, suggesting texts in their languages in the dedicated tab on translate.wordpress.org.
During this transition step, .po and .mo files will be used as always, but in order to be recognized by WordPress, they will need to have a new nomenclature, renaming them in:

  • yith-woocommerce-cart-messages-[WORDPRESS LOCALE].po
  • yith-woocommerce-cart-messages-[WORDPRESS LOCALE].mo

Tried installing on site with WP 4.9.1 and Woo 3.2.5. There was no place to set up cart message content.
