WooCommerce: Adding custom template to customer account pages

I am attempting to add a custom page to the customers 'account' section, which will allow the user to edit their order. At present I have been able to set an end point for the url and pick it up, but I need to get WooCommerce to initiate the page layout and be able to set the template location.

The URL being called:


This is in the
file, with the end point set and template override:

// Working
add_action( 'init', 'add_endpoint' );
function add_endpoint(){
add_rewrite_endpoint( 'edit-order', EP_ALL );

// need something here to check for end point and run page as woocommerce

// Not been able to test
add_filter( 'wc_get_template', 'custom_endpoint', 10, 5 );
function custom_endpoint($located, $template_name, $args, $template_path, $default_path){

if( $template_name == 'myaccount/my-account.php' ){
global $wp_query;
$located = get_template_directory() . '/woocommerce/myaccount/edit-order.php';

return $located;

Thanks for any help.

This is a working solution for WooCommerce 2.6+ to extend and manipulate the tabbed "My Account" page endpoints (See this reference at the end of this answer), so here it is what you can do to achieve this:

add_action( 'init', 'custom_new_wc_endpoint' );
function custom_new_wc_endpoint() {
    add_rewrite_endpoint( 'edit-order', EP_ROOT | EP_PAGES );

add_filter( 'query_vars', 'custom_query_vars', 0 );
function custom_query_vars( $vars ) {
    $vars[] = 'edit-order';
    return $vars;

add_action( 'after_switch_theme', 'custom_flush_rewrite_rules' );    
function custom_flush_rewrite_rules() {

// The custom template location
add_action( 'woocommerce_account_edit-order_endpoint', 'custom_endpoint_content' );
function custom_endpoint_content() {
    include 'woocommerce/myaccount/edit-order.php'; 

Then you will need, to Insert the new Edit order endpoint into the My Account menu:

add_filter( 'woocommerce_account_menu_items', 'custom_my_account_menu_items' );
function custom_my_account_menu_items( $items ) {
    // Remove the orders menu item.
    $orders_item = $items['orders']; // first we keep it in a variable
    unset( $items['orders'] ); // we unset it then

    // Insert your custom endpoint.
    $items['edit-order'] = __( 'Edit Order', 'woocommerce' );

    // Insert back the logout item.
    $items['orders'] = $orders_item; // we set it back

    return $items;

Important: You will need to flush the rewrite rules (2 ways):

  • Go to the Permalinks options page and re-save the permalinks (thanks to helgatheviking)
  • You can also disable/enable your theme.
