Sometimes, especially if you are using custom plugins to import stock data, you may find products with some stock value (greater then 0) but with stock flag set to “out of stock”. How to find them? Using WP_Query of course:

This can be really frustrating, you wanted your woocommerce shop running multilingual, but from cart page “Checkout” button leads to default language version? Solution is very simple, but not elegant – so far did not found another solution. First step is to create all woocommerce pages in every language you need, this is very simple but can take some time.

Just copy it and paste to your .htaccess. All links should work now!
