Support » Fixing WordPress » Admin User Defined Fields dropdown limited to 30 entries

  • Since I don’t know how long, the dropdown box for adding a user-defined field is only 30 entries long and thus doesn’t show all fields available.

    Can someone please look into that and fix it for the next version? I am surprised no one has noticed that before.

    Cheers,

    Helmar

    Which section of the dashboard can this field be found in?

    Hi Andrew,

    it’s in “Posts”, “Pages”, “WooCommerce orders”, everywhere, where you can activate “user defined fields” via the options panel.

    It sounds like this is specific to the WooCommerce plugin. If it is, I would recommend posting on your plugin’s support section here: https://wordpress.org/support/plugin/woocommerce#new-post – So that the developers and contributors of that plugin can see the issue and provide you with the right support.

    I first thought so, too, but it’s the same when I call up a random post, check the box so that the udf-section is displayed, and count the entries of the dropdown list. Result: Same thing. That said, WooCommerce piggybacks onto or hooks into WP, so I don’t see why it should be different. It’s therefore unrelated to WooCommerce.

    This looks like a WordPress wide issue to me as well. After thirty fields, a scrollbar should probably appear. In the worst case, autoscroll as one moves the cursor down.

    I’d suggest you do a search in Trac for a similar bug Helmar. If there isn’t one, we can give you a hand to set up a ticket. Ideally you’d show a non-Woo example so that you don’t get a response like the one above from Andrew.

    That said, we don’t like user defined fields or custom fields so it’s unlikely we’d add something like this to our own sites. If we add custom fields, we prefer to do so in a dedicated interface and not the custom fields stopgap.
