[Plugin update] Store Exporter Deluxe 2.2.1 for WooCommerce

Hi WooCommerce store owners, the 2.2.1 Plugin update is a minor Plugin update introducing tighter WPML integration, resolving a PHP warning in Order exports affecting one of the Order Items Formatting rules and allowing to force FTP Passive Transfer Mode for stubborn remote servers.

PHP warning in Orders using the Place Order Items on individual cells within a single Order row Order Items Formatting rule

If you’ve been seeing the following PHP warning popping up in some of your PHP error log or embedded at the top of CSV Order exports then this minor Plugin update is for you.

Warning: Illegal offset type in isset or empty in …/wp-includes/class-wp-hook.php on line 81
Warning: Illegal offset type in …/wp-includes/class-wp-hook.php on line 83

This PHP warning also was the cause of corrupt XLS and XLSX exports affecting users who updated to the 2.2 major Plugin release as it would corrupt the export file as it was being processed by the file generator.

WPML integration

You can now filter Order exports by specific Products and we will fetch Orders not just from the default WPML language but across all languages. There are also new Language export fields across all supported export types so you  can identify the Language of a given record (e.g. Product, Category, Tag, Order, etc.). Pretty nifty!

Force FTP Passive Transfer Mode

In the past our Scheduled Export engine has relied on the remote FTP server informing us what server commands are available to us which has meant we couldn’t switch to the Passive Transfer Mode at will. With this release we will send the PASV command to enable the passive transfer mode regardless of whether we are told if it is supported or not, you can ensure this happens by setting the Transfer Mode option to Passive from the Method tab of the Edit Scheduled Export screen.

This same clone functionality will be rolled out to the Export Template screen in the next Plugin update.

[Plugin update] Store Exporter Deluxe 2.1.10 for WooCommerce

Hi WooCommerce store owners, the 2.1.10 Plugin update is an urgent minor Plugin update to resolve an issue with empty Order exports, the Variation Product Type not being included in Product exports and the Featured Image/Product Gallery fields being empty. There is no new functionality in this minor release.

The changelog for the 2.1.10 minor release is very short as it focuses on resolving the above export issues introduced by the performance optimisations in the last 2.1.9 minor Plugin release. Now that the fires are out from the 2.1.8 major Plugin release I will be focusing on assisting store owners via Premium Support and planning development for the 2.2 series.

Here’s the full changelog:

Fixed

  • Fixed: Order exports not working
  • Fixed: Product Variations not being included in exports
  • Fixed: Featured Image and Product Gallery missing

Changed

  • Changed: Clearer wording of max_execution_time notice
  • Changed: Display open_basedir with notice styling

[Plugin update] Store Exporter Deluxe 2.1.9 for WooCommerce

Hi WooCommerce store owners, the 2.1.9 Plugin update is an urgent minor Plugin update to resolve activation issues affecting a small number of users when upgrading to the 2.1.8 minor release from Thursday.

When dealing with PHP fatal errors an ounce of prevention really is worth a pound of cure as recovering from them is just nasty so I’m very happy to get this release out to the Store Exporter Deluxe community. In the background I’ve re-written the automatic Plugin updater and Plugin update engine running on this website to provide better reporting when Plugin builds fail to lower the impact of corrupt Plugin releases.

The changelog for the 2.1.9 minor release is very short as it focuses on resolving the above Plugin activation issue and performance optimisations by lowering the number of Hook and Filter registrations on each screen load.

Here’s the full changelog:

Added

  • Added: PHPExcel temp directory override Filter (thanks Dmitry)

Fixed

  • Fixed: Re-introduced Subscriptions Filter (thanks Matt)
  • Fixed: Activation issue when refreshing Transients (thanks Yoshi)
  • Fixed: Default Scheduled Export schedule to daily

Changed

  • Changed: Conditionally load Filters and Actions on export running (thanks Tim)
