Query whether WooCommerce is activated

Note: We are unable to provide support for customizations under our Support Policy. If you need to further customize a snippet, or extend its functionality, we highly recommend Codeable, or a Certified WooExpert.

If you’re building a theme which supports but doesn’t require WooCommerce, you may want to wrap WooCommerce functionality (think cart links etc) inside a conditional query. That way, if WooCommerce isn’t activated, the functionality is simply ignored instead of producing fatal errors.

* Check if WooCommerce is activated
if ( ! function_exists( 'is_woocommerce_activated' ) ) {
function is_woocommerce_activated() {
if ( class_exists( 'woocommerce' ) ) { return true; } else { return false; }
