After failing to remember a WooWednesday or two, we’re back this week with more WooCommerce goodness. This week, however, isn’t going to be a tutorial or long-winded how-to. Instead, I wanted to share a few places where you can join me in the WooCommerce community.
If you’re looking to get plugged in to what’s happening in WooCommerce, these are the places you’ll want to look!
WooCommerce Community Slack
This free and open-to-all Slack community is the top place to watch for WooCommerce news, updates, help, and community rumblings. It is an official WooCommerce community, so there are lots of Automatticians in there along with others from the greater Woo space. For this reason, it’s a great place to ask questions about Woo site building, plugin development, or even just sit back and watch the lively ongoing conversations.
There’s even a weekly Developer Hour so you can ask questions while others are actively looking for questions to answer!
WooCommerce Community Facebook Group
Another inclusive, official WooCommerce community, this WooCommerce Facebook group is for the folks that might prefer social media platforms over Slack conversations (though, there’s quite a bit of overlap in members here and the Slack community!).
It can be a bit disarming at first. With over 47,500 members, the posts and comments come quickly. This is the community’s strength though, too! So many of these members are folks like you and me, looking for answers and opportunities to help other people as well.
If you’re not completely anti-Facebook (or whatever they’re called these days), go ahead and join the Woo conversations happening here!
WooCommerce Help & Share Facebook Group
I know, another Facebook group. But this unofficial WooCommerce community group also has over 40k members, so it’s a great place to get some help if you need it. In fact, this one was more specifically created for members helping each other, so it doesn’t get as polluted with news and update posts.
If you need help – or want to show that you’re a WooCommerce expert by helping others – this is the group to be in!
Do the Woo
Do the Woo is more of a resource than a community, officially, but there’s certainly a bit of community around this site as well. Bob Dunn (aka BobWP) has created a community resource that connects Woo builders with each other to help foster relationships and knowledge sharing.
You’ll mostly find Bob hanging out in the other WooCommerce communities as well, including a new partnership with Post Status.
Finally, I wanted to also quickly mention Post Status. While not exactly a WooCommerce community and rather more of a WordPress community in general, there are lots of smart, talented Woo folks within Post Status – so it’s worth joining the official Slack group there as well. As I mentioned above, Post Status also recently partnered up with Do the Woo, so the WooCommerce focus is growing here!
