Support » Plugin: WooCommerce » Order content disappeared from orders page

  • Resolved tabasco86



    Previously there was a column/tab next to each order that allowed us to see the order contents without actually opening the order. This column disappeared. Is there any way to get it back? It’s simple, however provides great functionality.

    thanks and have a great day!

    This was in the changelog and release post; we had to remove it because of the performance impact it had. It basically loaded all order items for all orders on the page!

    If it ever returns, it will need to be dynamic. I don’t think we’ll do it unless it gets a lot of demand so please by all means ask on

    We’ve removed the ‘order items’ column on the orders page. Whilst this can be useful, loading all items for all orders on the page is not performant. This may return in the future but it will need to be dynamic so it may just be left for a future UI redesign.

    DANG!! This stinks! I used that column every day!!!! Makes previewing orders way easier then loading up each order.

    Thats true however it didn’t contain the full information, so I assume you’d have to view the order anyway to ship it anyway?

    Please log an idea. If it gains traction, either we can look at it again, or a plugin dev can tackle it. It wouldn’t be hard to add back via a dedicated plugin (it would just be slow for the same reasons we took it out).

    I understand your point of view but as a store owner this is a big deal! It gave me enough information to place our orders with our vendors without having to open each order which does not give the attributes anyway…..

    This is a big loss for WooCommerce users! You need to rethink or add an option for the people who want to use it. Let sus make that performance decision.


    Another helpful solution to this would be to add the attributes of a product to the order detail page. This would show me the complete item in one place.

    @dgaeman, I already added the idea here.

    vote for it and spread the word. If enough people like the idea it’ll get put back into action.

    @mikejolley, thanks for the hard work. You guys do a great job!


    Really disappointed that this has been removed, if there is any way to add it back in it would really help. I was able to ship all orders from the orders page, with very rarely any need to go into the order itself. Removing it is going to have a huge impact on the amount of time that it takes to prepare orders, especially as I cannot see what the variations are, even when I go into the order itself.
