Use $_SESSION in WordPress/Woocommerce

By default you cannot create your $_SESSION in WordPress/Woocommerce.
The information in $_SESSION remain in only those files on which it is created.
You cant access $_SESSION on  other file.

So, for creating your own session variable you need to install
WP Session Manager plugin.To download you can visit


And to use the $_SESSION you need to first create session object.
To create object use below line.

$wp_session = WP_Session::get_instance();

and to set value use

$wp_session['session_name']="Your value";

Note: You have to first create session object on every file where you wish to use $wp_session object.
