Lurking Minicart for WooCommerce v1.4.0

Lurking Minicart for WooCommerce v1.4.0 has been released. It fixes the loading indicator spinning when the cart is empty; drops support for Internet Explorer; and now requires PHP 7.4+ and WooCommerce 5.5+.

Always spinning

In some installations, the loading indicator in the minicart would always be spinning when there was nothing in the cart. This release fixes that bug.

Minimum requirements

This version requires PHP 7.4 or later, and WooCommerce 5.5 or later. The plugin has had a code refresh with some features now requiring more modern PHP. At some point in the future, the minimum version will be increased to 8.0, so we recommend keeping your systems up to date.


The code has been streamlined a little, removing some old supporting code for obsolete WooCommerce versions and extinct web browsers such as Internet Explorer. CSS and JavaScript files have been moved inside a folder called /static/ in the plugin. Scripts and stylesheets are a little bit smaller now.

You can update to the latest version from your WordPress plugin admin page. Here’s the full changelog for Lurking Minicart for WooCommerce.
