Question No. 2

How to override WooCommerce checkout fields?

A user has created the fields in WooCommerce checkout page which labeled as “po_number” and he wants to display PO Numbers only for the user role “distributor”. As he is using WordPress 4.5.1 / WooCommerce 2.5.5. He has placed in child theme's functions.php is

function custom_override_checkout_fields( $fields ) {

    if ( ! current_user_can( 'distributor' ) && isset( $fields['billing']['po_number'] ) ) {
        unset($fields['billing']['po_number']);

    }
     return $fields;
}
add_filter( 'woocommerce_checkout_fields' , 'custom_override_checkout_fields' );

Answer

The function current_user_can() is associated with the capabilities of user roles but not for the recognition of their roles. That is why didn’t work in code. However, you can use this conditional function.

function is_user_role( $role, $user_id = null ) {
    if ( is_numeric( $user_id ) ) {
        $user = get_userdata( $user_id );
    } else {
        $user = wp_get_current_user();
    }
    if ( empty( $user ) ) {
        return false;
    }
    if ( in_array( $role, (array) $user->roles ) == 1) {
        return true;
    } else {
        return false;
    }
}

After that, you have to use this function in your code. :

function custom_override_checkout_fields( $fields ) {
    if ( !is_user_role( 'distributor' ) && isset( $fields['billing']['po_number'] ) ) {
        unset($fields['billing']['po_number']);
    }
        return $fields;
}
add_filter( 'woocommerce_checkout_fields', 'custom_override_checkout_fields' );

Question No. 4

How to display messages on the checkout page for the specific category of products?

A user wants to display the message on the checkout page to customers if they will buy specific category of products. He is using the following code but the message is displaying on the checkout page for all the products.

add_action( 'woocommerce_after_checkout_form', 'allclean_add_checkout_content', 12 );
function allclean_add_checkout_content() {
echo '<div class="checkoutdisc">Custom message appears here fine.</div>';
}

Answer:

Please check that you have the products in the cart with the special category. When any item with the special category in a cart will be in the cart, the message will have appeared.  Use this code

add_action( 'woocommerce_after_checkout_form', 'allclean_add_checkout_content', 12 );
function allclean_add_checkout_content() {
    // set your special category name, slug or ID here:
    $special_cat = 'special_category';
    $bool = false;
    foreach ( WC()->cart->get_cart() as $cart_item_key => $cart_item ) {
        $item = $cart_item['data'];
        if ( has_term( $special_cat, 'product_cat', $item->id ) )
            $bool = true;
    }
    // If the special cat is detected in one items of the cart
    // It displays the message
    if ($bool)
        echo '<div class="checkoutdisc">This is Your custom message displayed.</div>';
}

You can also do this by using an array of product IDs rather than product category. Here is the code to do this.

add_action( 'woocommerce_after_checkout_form', 'allclean_add_checkout_content', 12 );
function allclean_add_checkout_content() {
    // set your products IDs here:
    $product_ids = array( 31, 68, 87, 124);
    $bool = false;
    foreach ( WC()->cart->get_cart() as $cart_item_key => $cart_item ) {
        $item = $cart_item['data'];
        if ( in_array( $item->id, $product_ids ) )
            $bool = true;
    }
    // If the special cat is detected in one items of the cart
    // It displays the message
    if ($bool)
        echo '<div class="checkoutdisc">This is Your custom message displayed.</div>';
}

You have to place this code in function.php file of child theme or plugin file
