Managing WooCommerce product data

ACPT has a special integration with WooCommerce.

If you have WooCommerce already installed and don't see the product row on custom post type dashboard try to run a manual synchronization.

Then locate a column named Product data, and click the Create or Manage link.

The Product data list will be shown:

Managing product data

Once you are in the WooCommerce product data dashboard you can run these operations:

  • Create new product data

  • Update an existing product data

  • View a registered product data

  • Delete a registered product data

Create a new product data

Click on the "Add product data" button to create a new one:

The creation of new product data is a single-step process.

The form has four fields:

  • Product data name - max 20 characters allowed

  • Icon - taken from this list

  • Visibility

  • Show in UI

Update an existing product data

You have two ways to Update a post type:

  • By clicking the Edit link in the dashboard

  • By clicking the Edit link in the View mode

The update process is pretty identical to the creation one.

View a registered product data

By clicking the View link in the dashboard you can view product data.

Delete a product data

By clicking the Delete link in the dashboard you can delete product data.

IMPORTANT: This operation DOES NOT DELETE anything on the posts WordPress DB table, but only the ACPT settings.

After deleting a product data you will no longer display it in the admin panel, even if the records are still present.

If you try to re-create the same product data you'll see the data.

Managing product data fields

Locate the Fields column in the Product data dashboard. Click on "Create".

The product data fields manager looks very similar to the meta fields manager.

Click on the "Add field" button to create the first field:

The field header shows on the left the field name with a button to mark the field as required, and on the right four icons to handle the allowed actions:

  • Duplicate

  • Delete

  • Collapse

In the main panel there are four fields, from top to bottom:

  • Field name- type here the name of the field (required)

  • Field type - the field type (required)

  • Default value - the default value (optional)

  • Description - the description tip (optional)

Field types

Five types are allowed:

  • Text

  • Textarea

  • Select

  • Checkbox

  • Radio

If you select a field type that allows only a list of possible values you will display the Options list panel where you can type the label and the value for every option.
