[resolved] Downloadable products after 2.1 update (4 posts)

    I'm trying to get downloadable products working after the recent update.

    I realized _file_paths is no longer used and _downloadable_files (with "name" and "file" attribute) is the replacement.

    Somehow the update doesn't convert existing _file_paths to _downloadable_files.

    Would like to check if there are certain steps that I could do before updating to have a more seamless migration or do I have to write my own batch file to transfer _file_paths to _downloadable_files?

    Hope to get some advice here. Thanks!

    Could I purchase support for this issue? Seems like you only have support for your non-free extensions & themes?

    You sweet glorious person. I just lost four days of my life trying to diagnose this, and I suspected it might have come down to different references made in the database as I bounced around when I broke something testing out compatibilities with different versions of WooCommerce.

    In my case I am using this contraption : http://wordpress.org/plugins/bulk-photo-to-product-importer-extension-for-woocommerce/

    so I had to edit the point at which it creates variations and turns them into downloadable versions.

    For yours, it sounds more generic but I came across this page in my travels; hopefully it helps you as much as you've helped me:
