Custom Field Bulk Editor
[resolved] Is this the right Plugin for me? (9 posts)

    I have a cart system (MarketPress) which uses custom posts for its products. There is a weight field to those products (custom posts). Can I use this product to bulk update those already existing custom fields, or is this for managing your own custom fields? I wan't able to figure out how to use the plugin for the purpose that I want.

    Absolutely you can. My recommendation is to download the FoxyShop plugin and look at the bulkeditor.php file to see how I did it for my own cart plugin. It's very do-able.

    Hi,

    I am trying to do the same thing with prices in MarketPress. I have a list of products all the same price and I want to change the price of all of them in one hit.

    I gather you were trying to do the same with weight.

    Please tell me you have worked out what to do.

    Thank you for any help you can offer.

    Hi JamesICT,

    I think in the end we just re-uploaded the products CSV files. It's a new shop and the product doesn't change that much, so the client just needed to get the initial values in.

    That being said, I hope MarketPress updates its features, it's seriously lacking when compared to other WP carts. WPMU Dev has many great plugins and themes, unfortunately, this one didnt have the extensibility that we needed. We are probably moving to something like WooCommerce in the future.

    I didn't get a chance to check out sparkwebs suggestion, but I would install this plugin and take a look at what he said.

    Hi again,

    I have been playing around with the plugin to see what I can do and have managed to change the price on a specific category that had all the same prices and contained approximately 70 products.

    I entered the Custom Field Name and then clicked on 'Fill' which added the field to the whole list of products, however, I could not see any way to add the Value in bulk, so I had to enter it individually.

    It all worked, but just wondered if there is a better way of doing this?

    It looks like a very handy plugin to have in place - thanks a heap!

    Cool! I don't know anything about MarketPress, but you could look at the page source of your admin and see if the value is set to a specific custom field. For example, maybe it's "_value"? It might be a serialized array in which case you wouldn't be able to use the plugin to change it very effectively.

    Ok, I will look into that idea.

    So, there is no way to bulk edit the value though, without entering it individually for each post on the Edit Custom Fields For Products page?

    Thank you for your help?

    I'm not quite sure what you are asking here. You can select a bunch of posts and edit one field at once on the main page. That's what the plugin does

    Just fyi guys, most of the (MarketPress)fields are in a serialized array. :/
