Support » Plugin: Custom Bulk/Quick Edit » Quick edit excerpts won't save

  • Resolved gillespieza


    Excerpts I enter using the quick-edit feature are not saved. I have no custom posts, am using the plugin solely for the quick-edit excerpt function.

    I have enabled excerpts in the settings, but if I click Quick Edit, enter some text in the excerpt box, and click update, the excerpt disappears if I look again.

    Please advise?

    I’ll need to debug on your system. Could you please open a support ticket via and include an admin login?

    Don’t forget to reference this link.

    Thank you.

    I think I have narrowed down the problem – Quick Editing the excerpts works just fine until I enable the plugin “Threads” (

    Beyond this, are you still having troubles?

    Nope – it works perfectly without the Threads plugin. Of course I don’t expect you to have to fix a plugin conflict. I am currently looking for a replacement for Threads, failing which I will dig into the code and hope it’s decently commented and see if I can’t find where the problem is. Possibly a duplicated function name (the Threads plugin puts the thread taxonomy in Quick Edit as well)?

    [EDIT] So I think the conflict might have come with the save_post hook – both plugins remove the action and then re-add it. Threads used priority 10, yours uses priority 25. By changing the Threads priority to 26, now it all works fine 🙂

    Sweet to know the fix. Nice job figuring it out.


    I run and the excerpt will no longer allow me to either edit or add new excerpts to posts on the ‘quick edit’ option. It will only allow me to do once ive clicked into each individual post – which is much more time consuming. The quick edit option is great to add the excerpts when i go the entire list of posts and i can do lots in a short space of time – alas – no more. When i do try and edd text in the quick edit option it just totally disappears and any changes made to new ones – the changes are lost. Can you help please? This has become a key feature of my site so would ideally like this fixed…thanks in advance!
    Jen 🙂
