Check if WooCommerce is active

Most WooCommerce plugins do not need to run unless WooCommerce is already active. You can wrap your plugin in a check to see if WooCommerce is installed:

// Test to see if WooCommerce is active (including network activated).
$plugin_path = trailingslashit( WP_PLUGIN_DIR ) . 'woocommerce/woocommerce.php';

if (
    in_array( $plugin_path, wp_get_active_and_valid_plugins() )
    || in_array( $plugin_path, wp_get_active_network_plugins() )
) {
    // Custom code here. WooCommerce is active, however it has not 
    // necessarily initialized (when that is important, consider
    // using the `woocommerce_init` action).

Note that this check will fail if the WC plugin folder is named anything other than woocommerce.

Why did we close the discussion?

Many of the customers started reporting issues as comments instead of the ticketing system and this started delaying our response time.

We are making this change to serve our customers better. We have ramped up our support team and we are trying to get the reply out on the same day.
