Incompatibility with Custom Bulk/Quick Edit Premium plugin

Hello,

I’m using the Custom Bulk/Quick Edit Premium plugin (https://store.axelerant.com/downloads/custom-bulkquick-edit-premium-wordpress-plugin/) to be able to bulk edit WooCommerce products, for example to change product category (i.e. not adding another category, but actually switch from one category to another) and to add/change product attributes.

When I use Admin Columns Pro to alter the WooCommerce product columns, the functionality described above disappears. When the columns are restored, the Custom Bulk/Quick Edit functions come back.

I didn’t even know that Admin Columns Pro had any special features related to edit.php?

Please advise.

Thanks,

Daniel

Hi Daniel,

Admin Columns will ‘recognise’ most columns from other plugins, but not all. Sometimes the developer of a particular plugin prevents our plugin from changing their column. There’s not much we can do about that.

But if you’re looking a way to bulk edit products. You might just want to use the inline edit feature of Admin Columns for such thing. We even have a seperate WooCommerce add-on¬†which will enable you to edit almost any product information right from the products overview. You probably won’t need other bulk plugins to be able to quickly edit your products and articles.

Cheers,
Tobias

What is strange is that the plugins can co-exist without any issues on an installation with earlier versions of both plugins.

But as you mention, I might be trying to use the Custom Bulk/Quick Edit Premium plugin in vain if your plugin can handle the same tasks.

Please explain how to e.g. use your filters to filter out 500 WooCommerce products and then use mass edit to change category (not adding, but switching category), change product attribute and/or edit a custom field for all these 500 products at one go. How do I get these options at the bulk edit screen, again I didn’t know that your plugin affects bulk edit at all? Maybe I can do tasks like this somewhere else when using your plugin?

Thanks,

Daniel

Hello again,

I understand that mass edit is still not available in Admin Columns Pro? For example if I want to change product category, brand and set two custom fields for a couple of hundred WooCommerce products at one go.

Since this doesn’t seem to be available I must rely on other plugins, in this case the Custom Bulk/Quick Edit Premium plugin I mentioned earlier. This plugin and Admin Columns Pro didn’t work together out of the box, but I could use a workaround, something like this:

add_filter( 'manage_edit-product_columns', 'my_manage_edit-product_columns' );
function my_manage_edit-product_columns( $columns ) {
	$columns['custom_stuff'] = esc_html__( 'Custom Stuff Here' );
	return $columns;
}

What’s really problematic for me now is that your latest version of Admin Columns Pro destroys the functionality of the Custom Bulk/Quick Edit Premium plugin completely, i.e. the above workaround works no longer! I’m now forced to use an old version of Admin Columns Pro (version 3.6.3 can handle the workaround) until you help me figure this out.
Please advise.

Thanks!

We made sure to fix all issues with Custom Bulk edit. Admin Columns Pro should be fully compatible wit Custom Bulk Edit Basic and Premium and you won’t need to use any filters.

I also did a few tests but I couldn’t reproduce your issues. Try restoring your columns and adding them again.

Here is a short WooCommerce Product demo:

Nice! Restoring the columns helped. I still need to use the filter in functions.php for adding custom fields to mass edit, but that has to do with the Custom Bulk/Quick Edit plugin. I also noted that I need to add the custom fields again in Admin Columns to be able to filter and sort on these.

Also, there seems to be some issues with quick edit, for example I’ve seen two product category select boxes. But overall it works sufficiently for me at the moment.

Thanks a lot for your quick support!
