Support » Plugin: Version Info » Not Compatible with AutomateWoo

  • Resolved BigBugsy


    With AutomateWoo enabled, Version Info doesn’t function. The server info doesn’t get added to the footer of the admin area.

    If I disable AutomateWoo, Version Info functions again.

    Since AutomateWoo is not freely available, I can’t test it with this plugin. It seems that AutomateWoo is responsible, though. Maybe they remove filters from admin_footer or they replace the footer altogether? I won’t know without looking at their code, however.

    Yes, it’s definitely due to a change in AutomateWoo. I know it was introduced sometime after version 4.9.6 – changelog – . I contacted WooCommerce, who provides support for AutomateWoo, and they weren’t helpful.

    I found your email on your website. I’ll email you the plugin in case you’d be willing to look into it.

    Thank you

    Thank you for sending me the plugin.

    AutomateWoo registers a CSS file with the handle automatewoo-main, which in turn depends on a CSS file from WooCommerce with the handle wc-admin-app (it’s in woocommerce/packages/woocommerce-admin/dist/app/style.css) and this CSS file has a rule #wpfooter {display: none;}.

    The easiest workaround would be to put a #wpfooter {display: block!important;} in one of your CSS files (or however you handle custom CSS). I don’t want to include it in this plugin as I don’t want to mess with users’ custom styles.

    This could be forwarded to WooCommerce, however, as I think that’s where it should be fixed.

    Thanks! I reported the issue to WooCommerce. The support rep was able to reproduce the issue and will open a bug ticket in their system.
