Outdated WooCommerce Templates

Problem:

Seeing the following Warning in the administration dashboard after updating WooCommerce:

Your theme (Theme Name) contains outdated copies of some WooCommerce template files. These files may need updating to ensure they are compatible with the current version of WooCommerce. You can see which files are affected from the system status page. If in doubt, check with the author of the theme.

Solution:

In case you’re seeing a notification in your administration dashboard saying the theme includes some outdated WooCommerce templates, it means you’ve recently updated WooCommerce but haven’t updated the theme yet. The latest version of out themes is always compatible with the latest version of WooCommerce.

Updating the theme to its latest version will fix the outdated templates.

Still getting the warning after updating the theme?

If updating the theme to its latest version won’t make the warning go away, most probably you’re using a child theme and the outdated templates are coming from the child, rather than the parent theme you just updated.

Manually removing those template files from the child, will have the site rely on the the native WooCommerce templates, so the way to go is to either remove the outdated template files or check and update the code in your templates.
