One of the features of Bloomer Armada is the provision of Premium WooCommerce Q&A Support to supporters who enroll. So, how to add an extra “tab” to the My Account page, and how to add content inside it?

Here’s the code I used (thanks to Mike Jolley for inspiration) – feel free to leave a comment below if you found this tutorial useful 🙂

Premium WooCommerce Support

Welcome to the WooCommerce support area. As a premium customer, you can submit a ticket should you have any WooCommerce issues with your website, snippets or customization. Please contact your theme/plugin developer for theme/plugin-related support.

'; echo do_shortcode( ' /* your shortcode here */ ' ); } add_action( 'woocommerce_account_premium-support_endpoint', 'tutoraspire_premium_support_content' ); // Note: add_action must follow 'woocommerce_account_{your-endpoint-slug}_endpoint' format

Is There a (Reliable) Plugin For That?

If you’d love to code but don’t feel 100% confident with PHP, I decided to look for a reliable plugin that achieves the same result.

In this case, I recommend the YITH WooCommerce Customize My Account Page plugin. On top of adding new My Account tabs, you can also move the tab menu around, customize the color scheme, add banners, set up reCaptcha on the register and login forms, sort, rename, delete and group tabs, conditionally show tabs to a given user role and much more.

But in case you hate plugins and wish to code (or wish to try that), then keep reading 🙂
