Support » Plugin: WooCommerce » Product edit doesn’t open/work

  • Resolved mo7900



    Since updating to 3.6.0+ we can’t open a product page to edit it. Also regular pages open, but very slow.

    We’re currently using the below code to make it work temporarily (found via:

    function s9_remove_post_custom_fields_metabox() {
    foreach ( get_post_types( ”, ‘names’ ) as $post_type ) {
    remove_meta_box( ‘postcustom’ , $post_type , ‘normal’ );
    add_action( ‘admin_menu’ , ‘s9_remove_post_custom_fields_metabox’ );

    Is anyone-else having this issue, can someone help us?

    we de-activated all plugin, switched themes and checked, the problem exists.

    Have you tried using a default theme and checking? Also WC 3.6.3 is out as of yesterday. Try that in a staged area as well.

    Hi Stef, Thanks for the reply.

    Yes, it’s updated to 3.6.3, the issue started from 3.6.0. We have brought it to a staging and bddn testing at the moment with no luck.

    As mentioned, everything is up-to date. All plugins except for WC is de-activated. Have checked with default themes. No luck!

    Hi there,

    here you go. In overrides variable.php shows outdated, but we renamed and used the core file (along with de-activating all plugins as well, and changing themes, and even switching to parent theme of mediacenter as well).

    @mo7900 Were you able to find a solution to the issue with not being able to edit products, or has the issue been resolved with subsequent updates?

    Thread Starter mo7900


    Hi there, we’re still using the above mentioned code to open/edit/add products and regular post pages at normal speed. If we don’t use the code they do open, but takes ages to open/load. And every now and then the post pages act up too, and will not let us add new pages etc. So we’re still continuing to use the code mentioned in my initial post.

    @mo7900 It appears you have some premium plugins through If you have active licenses for these, you are entitled to premium support. I would suggest you create a ticket through your account at and the staff will be able to dig into this further for you.

    Hi @mo7900,

    I am not seeing a ticket submitted for this issue. Have you been able to submit the ticket? If so you can let me know you have here and we can close this thread.

    I look forward to hearing back from you!

    Hi @mo7900,

    I am going to close this thread for now, however if you are still having the issue just reply to this and we will re-open it.

    If you have other issues please open a new thread and let us know!

    Hi, sorry for the delay, was on vacation.

    This issue is still active, we still are using the code via functions.php to open, edit and add new products. Our premium plugins are from a GPL site, so we can’t open a ticket. Thanks!

    Jesse Pearson (a11n)

    @mo7900 This sounds like you have custom code running and you also have potentially modified plugins from an unknown source, so you would need to hire a developer for assistance with the issue.
