So many times I needed to “play” with Cart contents in order to modify the default behaviour (such as removing a columns, hide the sale price to prices, hide an item, etc.).

There is a great PHP function that always helps – it’s called print_r and you can use this to “see” what’s inside the cart array, so that you can return certain information in a message for example.

A bit advanced, but as you grow your WooCommerce coding skills, you will use this a lot 🙂

$cart = WC()->cart->get_cart();
