Support » Plugin: WooCommerce Multilingual - run WooCommerce with WPML » Impact of temporarily disable WC MUL

  • Resolved jesperjmp



    I’m trying to help a client who experiences very slow / gateway timeout error when bulk-editing products.
    When troubleshooting this I found out when disabling WooCommerce Multilingual plugin, this error almost disappears.

    As a temporary solution, I might suggest client to temporary disable this plugin, perform the bulk editing, and then turn plugin on again.

    Would this be a risk-free solutions?
    Does it affect end-users visiting the site during this de-activation?

    Depends very much on the site setup, which features it uses and the changes that you would want to do and the time and if the site would be accessible during the time that you switch off the plugin.
    If you change things that should be the same between languages – there could be huge issues. Like prices, stock quantity, availability and others

    Yes, stopping the plugin will affect the end-users that visit the site and orders, emails, currencies and stock quantity would be affected so using a maintenance mode for the duration of the change is a must if you ask me.

    In the end, I would not recommend disabling the plugin – especially for bulk changes as some values that need to be synchronized between original and translations might not be synced and that could cause bigger problems in the works of the site after that point. Perhaps you need to select a smaller batch of products to process or rising your server parameters to accommodate the increased load during that operation.
