Support » Plugin: WooCommerce » How to Change Admin Product Page Screen Options from Code (products page blank)

  • Resolved jameswwolf


    I changed the screen options (at top of page) for the admin side woocommerce products page… I was trying to ‘view all products’ rather than pagination. So I changed the number in screen options to 500. Now the products page (back-end admin side) is blank and I cannot edit products.

    From what file in woocommerce plugin can I modify this screen option setting to fix my products page?

    Thanks for an awesome plugin!!

  • Anyone?

    I cannot figure out how to modify ‘screen options’ on woocommerce edit products page, from the code..

    I am certain that changing the screen options is what has broken my ‘edit products’ page…

    Please help!
    Thanks, James

    SOLVED. The solution was quite easy… all screen options are saved under the user’s meta options. So I simply created a new user as administrator, then deleted the old administrator. Now the default screen options are back!!


    Thank James!!!!!!

    You saved my sorry bacon. Glad you’re resourceful as NO-ONE came to help out – I did exactly the same as you 🙂 500 products and now met with a blank screen.
    I shall do as you say immediately…

    Well done that man!

    Thanks James 😀

    Are the user’s meta options editable in the code somewhere James do you know?

    Hi there aliput!! Hope all is well and that this solution has worked for you.

    I’m not sure where the user options are editable in the code… I just simply created a new user as admin and then deleted the old admin.

    Because the products page was the only page which broke, I was still able to access the USERS page from the back-end of wordpress.

    No need to create new user. You can still change the value from DB without switching users. The value is stored in wp_usermeta table.

    So find the entry in the database
    SELECT * FROM wp_usermeta WHERE meta_value=”500″
    and change it.

    Good stuff

    saved my life

    Thanks all
