How to update outdated templates

  1. Go toWooCommerce > Status> System Status. Scroll to the end of the page where there is a list of templates overridden by your theme/child theme and a warning message that they need to be updated. For example, the template cart-shipping.php is outdated:outdated-template
  2. Save a backup of the outdated template.
  3. Copy the default template from wp-content/plugins/woocommerce/templates/[path-to-the-template] and paste it in your theme folder found at: wp-content/themes/[path-to-theme]
  4. Open the template you pasted into the theme folder with a text editor of choice, such as Notepad++, and replicate any changes that you had to the previous template in your new, updated template file.

We recognize that it can be time consuming. This is why we try to avoid changing WooCommerce templates, but sometimes it is wise to break backwards compatibility.
