Support » Plugin: WooCommerce Quick/Bulk Order Form » "Warning Empty Needle" & Invalid Arguments

  • Resolved Fundamentals


    “I’m currently using the Bulk Order Form, within a WC WordPress shopping site. Currently, it looks as if the update to WC 2.1.9 has crashed the Bulk Order Forms plugin (v. 1.0.5) Any help resolving would be most appreciated. Please see example link below for actual error readout:


    You may need to register with a username on the site. Registration has been automated for troubleshooting. That’s probably the reason why you don’t see that error; because, there’s no way for you to purchase as a guest or passive viewer.

    Thanks for the quick reply.

    Okay, got it! So I see errors being thrown by WooCommerce itself, and the WooCommerce Bulk Variation plugin. I also see that there is a button for the bulk order form, but no order form is displayed when I click it. I did an inspect element and I don’t see any traces of the Bulk Order Form plugin being activated. Could you confirm that the plugin is active on the site?

    OK. Please see attached screenshot link:

    I’m afraid if I Deactivate the plugin, I’m going to lose the individual product settings that allow each one to show that there’s a bulk edit option. At this point, I’d have to make note of each that shows Bulk Edit, just in case I have to troll through and modify each listing.

    Oh right, that was silly of me. 🙂 It’s because the [wcbulkorder] shortcode isn’t being properly output on the page. Can you confirm that is placed in the proper location?

    Could you please point to the best location to verify this setting? I’m not sure where the code was placed initially. Is this a shortcode edited in the Theme PHP editor?

    I don’t know where that location is (i’ve never seen this setup before). It’s whatever generates this: If you want you can send admin login details to and I can take a closer look.
