Reviews

It’s the best

Many thanks for this time saver! I used it for 150k attributes 🙂
Just one thing is missing – the variations maker from attributes (found on StackOverflow)

var $j = jQuery.noConflict();
var base = 'https://test.com'; //website
var ids = [1, 2]; //product post id-s
var securityToken = 'XXXXXXXXX'; //get the security token from cookies

//recursively trigger woocommerce_link_all_variations action
function variate(arr) {
  var id = arr.pop();
  if (typeof id === 'undefined' || !id) return;
  console.log('handling post ' + id);
  $j.ajax(base + '/wp-admin/admin-ajax.php', {
    'data': 'action=woocommerce_link_all_variations&post_id=' + id + '&security=' + securityToken,
    'type': 'POST',
    'processData': false,
    'contentType': 'application/x-www-form-urlencoded'
  }).done(function() {
    variate(arr)
  });
}

– run it from web browser console (F12)

Awesome Time Saver – Added 4 Attributes with 10 Variations to 100 Products!

I was cautious after reading some reviews, but this is super easy to use. First, I created two new test products — both simple, not variable. Then I added them to a new category I created called “Test”. Then I navigated to the WordPress Products Tab and clicked the plugin “Bulk Product Manager.” It opened and then I chose the “Product Category” as the identity type. I ticked all 3 attribute settings and, here is the important part: held down the “control” key and clicked on every single one of the 10 variants I was adding. I then clicked “next” (over on the right side). It worked! So then I did it for a category with just a few variable products to see if it altered any pricing or other information already entered – – it did not! It just adds the attributes. Of course for my products which were simple, I still had to go through and change them to variable and add the variation to cause WooCommerce to display them, but this plug in saved sooooo many repetitive steps! Thank you!

Be careful

It cleared all my variants for products. Damn it. :(. I lost everything without backups.

Wipeout – High hopes, big disappointment.

I so wanted this to work. First, because of other reviews, I was weary about it deleting existing attributes, so I ran a test…. Yikes (wish I would have picked a category that I hadn’t finished yet). All existing attributes were gone and only the one I selected in this plugin was there. I thought, well maybe I should not have selected the Update Attributes button. So I ran it on a different category without selecting Update Attributes thinking that it should leave all existing attributes alone, but it wiped them out as well. I so wanted this to work. Now I have another hours work replacing the attributes it wiped out. I know it’s an hours worth of work, because that is when I got tired of doing it manually, so I went looking for this type of plugin to start with. If it can be fixed and work correctly, I would gladly give it 5 stars… If you want to try it yourself, do yourself a favor and try it on one product id first to see if it behaves right for you before wiping out a whole category’s worth of attributes.
