  3. I don’t suppose anyone knows how to change the text on the ‘Log in’ and ‘Register’ buttons on Woocommece?

  4. For those having problems and it not working try this –

    add_filter(‘woocommerce_product_single_add_to_cart_text’, ‘woo_custom_cart_button_text’);

    function woo_custom_cart_button_text() {
    return __(‘Book Now’, ‘woocommerce’);
    }

    1. This is the right one! But the ” ‘ ” is wrong, should be

      add_filter(‘woocommerce_product_single_add_to_cart_text’, ‘woo_custom_cart_button_text’);

      function woo_custom_cart_button_text() {
      return __(‘Book Now’, ‘woocommerce’);
      }
