Allow tickets to show on WooCommerce shop pages


By default, the WooCommerce products that correspond to tickets created with Event Tickets Plus are hidden from displaying in the shop pages. WooCommerce products can be configured to show in the shop pages by editing the product in WooCommerce > Products and changing the "catalog visibility" settings in the product's "publish" panel. This snippet will change the default visibility of ticket products to be "visible" instead of "hidden" when creating or saving a ticket within an event. 

Note: this will only affect tickets when creating a new ticket or saving an existing ticket. For existing tickets, you can either re-save the tickets within the event, or manually change the visibility of the WooCommerce product. 


Copy the below code into your (child) theme's functions.php file (or wherever you usually put custom code).


add_action( 'event_tickets_after_save_ticket', function( $post_id, $ticket ) {
    $product = wc_get_product( $ticket->ID );
    $product->set_catalog_visibility( 'visible' );
}, 100, 2 );
