WordPress Custom Bulk/Quick Edit Premium Plugin

Through Custom Bulk/Quick Edit Premium, you can easily add text, checkbox, color, date, radio, single and multiple select, and textarea inputs fields to edit post meta within the bulk edit and quick edit screens for custom post types, pages, and posts. Further, you can enable editing of category and tag taxonomies that don’t normally appear.

Next, taxonomy, checkbox, radio, and select fields have the option to be reset, as in remove current options during bulk editing. This is very helpful when you want to mass reset or remove information.

Custom Bulk/Quick Edit Premium automatically detects custom fields that use the manage_{$post_type}_posts_columns filter to display additional columns on the edit screen. Therefore, unless it’s already configured, your theme’s functions.php file will have to modified to add custom field columns. See Usage below for implementation details.

    Hey Airhus,

    Is it possible that the premium version of the plugin can work like a categories migrator? The out-of-the-box WordPress Bulk Editor only allows you to *add* taxonomy terms for your selection of custom post types… not remove them. This is becoming a big pain for a client.

    Even if you had to do it in two steps it (add new category, then remove previous category), it would be great.

    If not, any chance of a modification coming up soon to do that? :)

    I’m also looking for the mentioned feature to use with WooCommerce products. I’m seeing discussions at WordPress.org about this and the function might be implemented in the WP core soon, as many people have expressed a need for it. So let’s see what happens. If this paid plugin adds the functionality before it becomes core functionality, I’ll probably buy it.


    • I’ve just released an update today that enables editing WooCommerce product types and custom attributes.

      • Dan

        Sounds great! Just wanna be sure that I understand this correctly. So for whatever WooCommerce products I filter out using built-in or enhanced filtering through another plugin such as Admin Columns Pro, your plugin will enable me to practically move all these products from one category to another (or several other)?

        • You can change category, tags, and such. Give the free version a try on posts to ensure the capability is what you’re looking for.

            Would buy premium in a second if I could figure out how to edit woocommerce custom attributes …. read the docs and didn’t get anywhere … the woocommerce custom attributes do not show up in the settings. If you could make this more intuitive to where it could auto detect custom taxonomies instead of requiring them to be added manually via functions.php, it could be a useful tool for woo stores ….


          • I’m aware that autodetection would be nice and for some configurations, it is. However, with so many variations on how things can be built, it’s not practical.

            In the end, the small amount of coding per https://aihrus.zendesk.com/entries/24800411 is not difficult.
