Change order of Available Downloads in WooCommerce

If you’re running WooCommerce and you sell digital products, here’s how you can change their order.

By default, WooCommerce will order them from Oldest > Newest.  So the first products you ordered go first, and the latest products you ordered go at the bottom.   If it’s a subscription site, where customers continually get new digital downloads, it might be nice to have the latest downloads on top.

The first thing you will need to do is make a copy of the WooCommerce template, into your theme.  You’re probably using a Child Theme, right?

    1. Copy
      woocommerce/templates/my-account/my-downloads.php

      into

      yourtheme/woocommerce/my-account/my-downloads.php

      If your theme already has this file there, you can just make your edits there.

    2. Change this line
      <?php foreach ( $downloads as $download ) : ?>

      to this

      <?php foreach ( array_reverse($downloads) as $download ) : ?>
    3. That’s it!  PHP’s array_reverse does all the magic for you.  Now all your Available Downloads will be ordered with the newest on the top.
