Support » Plugin: WP-Lister Lite for eBay » Adding Custom Meta Fields to Profile Listing

  • Resolved yikesitskevin



    I am the author of a plugin called Custom Product Tabs for WooCommerce. The plugin allows you to add tabs to your WooCommerce product. These tabs are saved as post metadata.

    We recently got a support ticket asking if it was possible to add our Custom Product Tab information to an eBay listing’s description using your plugin. I haven’t downloaded your plugin (so I am sorry if I am making no sense), but after watching the YouTube video I was wondering if post metadata could be added to a defined “profile.” Is this possible? If so, are there any filters for this metadata? Our custom product tab information is stored as a serialized array so we would have to manipulate the data a bit to make it suitable for an eBay description.

    Any ideas, information, or resources on how to implement this would be appreciated!

    Thank you for your time,

  • Hello yikesitskevin.

    Thanks for your interest in WPLab.

    At wplister_process_template_html there is an example (#5) on how to do this for the official WooCommerce Tab Manager plugin. You could use that example to write your own code snippet that would work with your plugin.

    Kind regards,

    Hello John,

    Thanks for the response! I was able to successfully add the custom product tab info and it was pretty simple.

    I was wondering if you had any advice as to how to insert this custom tab info into a different place within the product overview. We’d like to move it from the bottom of the product overview to roughly the middle. The issue is that the rest of the product information is coming from the default editor. The only ways I can imagine moving our custom content is by (1) using PHP string parsing to insert our content above a specifically named HTML element or (2) moving some of the info into another filter function with a lower priority (so it appends the content to the bottom after we’ve already appended our custom content).

    If you have any tips on how to accomplish this in a cleaner way, let me know. If you don’t it’s no big deal; you’ve helped enough.

    Thanks for everything,

    Hello Kevin.

    Sorry, I wish I could provide more details but layout/design is not part of our support. There may be something our developers could come up with, but I would ask you to submit a ticket here: Support Form with more details, and admin login credentials so we can examine the code. It would be best for your client to do so and copy the URL of this thread in the ticket as well.

    Kind regards,
