Creating a custom WordPress Plugin to extend Store Exporter Deluxe

This tutorial will show you how to create a custom WordPress Plugin that extends the Store Exporter Deluxe Plugin without making changes to your Theme or Child Theme’s functions.php file. This solution is strongly recommended where a Child Theme is not in use.

The action within this tutorial removes the first part of the Order Items: Product Name export column’s contents where this store has setup their Product Name to have a ‘/’ (forward slash) to separate Product Name details (e.g. Store Exporter Deluxe / WooCommerce where only Store Exporter Deluxe is required). You can replace the action within this Custom Add-on Plugin with any Code Snippet available on this website.

General instructions

Here’s how we do it:

  1. Connect to your WordPress site using your preferred FTP/SFTP manager
  2. Navigate to the /wp-content/plugins/… directory
  3. Create a new directory named ‘woocommerce-store-exporter-deluxe-custom’
  4. Open the ‘woocommerce-store-exporter-deluxe-custom’ directory
  5. Create a new file named ‘custom.php’
  6. Edit the ‘custom.php’ file with your preferred file editor
  7. Paste the contents of the code snippet at the top of this tutorial
  8. Save the modified file and upload the file changes
  9. Open the WordPress Administration of your WordPress site
  10. Open the Plugins screen from the Plugins sidebar menu
  11. Scroll down to ‘WooCommerce – Store Exporter Deluxe (Custom Add-on)’
  12. Click Activate to activate this custom Plugin add-on

That’s it! The code snippet placed within the custom Plugin add-on will now be active and applied to future exports; give it a try! You can add/remove code snippets from this file whenever you like! 🙂
