Support » Plugin: WPC Product Bundles for WooCommerce » Decent, but buggy

  • The plugin seems to do its job mostly fine, but it has some bugs that make it a pain to develop for. The issues I ran into are:

    – automatically calculating the price broke the price display on our template, so instead we went with “fixed price” option (ie. manually add a fixed price for the product).
    – If you use the “fixed price” option, the plugin will NOT display the bundle price in the Order Details page, nor on the Woocommerce order emails. This is a huge problem, caused by an improperly written filter function (‘woosb_order_formatted_line_subtotal’).
    – plugin uses an anonymous class, this makes it impossible to remove any filters/action the plugin add using the default wordpress functions. You need to dig into the wordpress internal filter list for that, you can’t just use “remove_action()”.

    To the devs: the offending function was woosb_order_formatted_line_subtotal on line 2101, replace the two “return ”;” commands with “return $subtotal;”. Also, either use a static class (recommended practice), or at least save the active instance of the plugin class into a global variable (not recommended but it works and can be added without any code rewrite – just use “$global_var_name = new WPCleverWoosb();” when setting up).

    Also on the support forum, the author recommends everyone to sign up to its own site to create bug tickets. That alone is a huge red flag.

    I give it 2 stars because ultimately I could get it to work, but one should not need to be digging into the plugin source to fix bugs the plugin comes with.

    Hi,
    I’ve seen that you create a ticket thread to us then you rate our plugin with a low rating. Kind of awkward that you didn’t leave any room for us to fix the problem before giving us a bad review. Sorry for any inconvenience caused to you, but this is somehow unfair to us as well. Hope that you will give us a chance to fix it.
