Disable Cart Fragments by Optimocha


Disable Cart Fragments is a lightweight plugin which effectively speeds up your WooCommerce website by disabling the cart fragments script. It also enqueues the script back when the cart is not empty anymore; so it only works while the cart is empty.

Why is disabling cart fragments important?

WooCommerce makes an AJAX request to check your cart and update your cart totals in wherever your theme shows cart contents (like the header menu). This AJAX call is made to override caching plugins, which is good, but it generally takes time.

How does Disable Cart Fragments solve the issue?

With our plugin, you have the best of both worlds: You keep using the caching plugin and you still get to update the cart totals when the cart is not empty. This check is made via WooCommerce cart cookies, so it still employs JavaScript but doesn’t rely on slow AJAX requests. The check is made instantly, whether you’re using a caching plugin or not. How cool is that?

Updated my review from 1 to 3 stars as author replied here and presumably allowed the notice to be dismissed (I’ve replaced the plugin so I cannot verify). This plugin advertises speed optimization services via an admin notification but unfortunately it is dismissible for administrator level accounts but not for shop manager accounts. Either an unfortunate bug or intentionally advertising to less privileged user accounts. Either way, we replaced this plugin with one that doesn’t do this.

Fantastic and magical plugin. It should be merged as an option in the WooCommerce settings itself

  • Tested and ensured compatibility with WordPress 6.2 and WooCommerce 7.8.0.
  • Fixed an issue: Store managers were unable to dismiss the notices.


  • Tested and ensured compatibility with PHP 8.1, WordPress 6.1.1 and WooCommerce 7.3.0.
  • Added the necessary HPOS (High-Performance Order Storage) compatibility code.


  • Version bumps to ensure DCF is working with WordPress 6.0 and WooCommerce 6.5.1.


  • Turns out WordPress thinks v1.21 is “newer” than 1.4 – kind of makes sense; we should’ve made v1.21 as v1.2.1. Anyway, we’re releasing v2.0 which is the same as v1.4 but this will set the record straight and people using v1.21 will get updates this time.


  • Tested up to WordPress’s and WooCommerce’s latest versions.
  • Fixed non-dismissible notice.
  • New uninstall.php.


  • Forgot to change the version name in the PHP file… (sigh)


  • Tested with WooCommerce v4.0.1.
  • Changed dependancy of the cart fragments script from woommerce(.min).js to jquery.js.


  • Edited readme.txt to fix the info on the “Installation” section.
  • Branded the plugin with a nice little icon.


  • Initial release
