Well, the previous response was out of frustration of not finding results on debugging the issues after almost 12 hours, we had long known that TinyMCE 4.0 will bring issues. If you simply browse around you’ll find that there are many many people facing similar issues and all the blame will be given to the Plugin/theme authors and developers. Worst part is that TinyMCE 4.0 is not backwards compatible, several functions have simply been renamed/changed without a fallback.
I see. Venting of frustration is fine. Spreading misinformation, not so much. I felt the need to try to prevent any potential spread of misinformation here. I have no need to browse around as I’ve been directly involved in several such situations personally. However, I feel that is just the way of things. Plugin / Theme authors like us know what TinyMCE is but end users don’t typically.
Let them remain ignorant about such things, that’s one reason they pay us. That’s also why I purchase from others as I’m still ignorant of so much. There’s always someone smarter. Though if any author has procrastinated (or supposedly didn’t have the time to go) about fixing any such issues until the 3.9 RC2 / Final was out, I have little to no sympathy. That’s just bad form IMO. Good Luck!
WP 3.9 is one of the most unstable updates by WordPress so far. It has also meant death for many plugins using TinyMCE. Popular plugins such as Ultimate TinyMCE (over 2 million downloads) have declared end of life.
WooCommerce have already said they are not going to update. refer link.
, the compat3x does not work (link), The WP codex isn’t updated refer link ..I wonder why was there such haste to release it, when it was already known that upgrading TinyMCE to 4.0 would have issues and considering the impact of this on # of websites
LOL. You’re quite the drama queen aren’t you?
First off, I know change is hard. However, v3.9 isn’t as unstable as you claim. The release date was well known in advance. There were months where you could have tested more / provided more input during the betas and RCs. If you failed to get sufficiently involved then don’t blame the WP team.
Apparently, you’re unaware of the fact that Ultimate TinyMCE has only been Eol ‘ed because it’s been replaced with this (so not really dead) ...
WooCommerce is the brand rather the company. Woothemes will continue to update WooCommerce and the built in WC ShortCode will still work (no site breakage).
However, the ShortCode generator may just be MIA for a while. I know this can be fixed because it was already fixed on another plugin. It’s a TinyMCE issue rather than a WP one anyhow. If you’d done any amount of decent testing before release, you’d probably have already fixed it by now.
So, the sky is not falling and it’s really just your own stuff need fixing. They’re only dead if you decide to abandon them in their current state.
The cost to me isnt $199, it’s $399 – I want to use on more than one site + I dont like Woocommerce’s terms – what you get is for 1 year only After that, you have to purchase or renew
Hmmm, you apparently would seem to undervalue or not value at all the updates and support (or the valuable time that will likely go into both of these) that will be provided during the course of that year then? You want to pay very little for quality and think updates and support should be free? A very sad attitude but not uncommon, if that’s the case here.
Do you need to use the item on multiple sites immediately? You need to have the product installed for more than 5 simultaneous sites? How many total? Are these sites all owned by yourself or others? What are they for more specifically?
You’re being cheap IMO but you’ll eventually find what you’re after for a price you’re wiling to pay if you look long enough / hard enough. Later in retrospect afterward though, you’ll likely realize it was actually more expensive (in time, money, etc) and probably better to have just paid for either of the solutions you’re now aware of.
Do you realize that “Products” (from WooCommerce) is simply a Custom Post Type ( CPT ) ? This means that it can be imported / exported as XML using the FREE WordPress Exporter on the WordPress Plugin Repository. This gets you 80% of the way there. However, this doesn’t support any attachments / media though so you’ll have to do that manually but it is free.
Have you searched the WordPress Plugin Repository for the terms “WooCommerce Exporter” yet for a free plugin? Maybe you find something you can use. Help yourself. Don’t be confined to just CodeCanyon and WooThemes as it’s a big WWW out there. Trying out several free plugins can eat up time though.
Many are easily spoiled by the low prices on CC. However, just think about how much it would cost you in time to have to do the import manually yourself (even just the media part) if you still can’t justify the cost to yourself. You will likely NOT have to do ONLY do it just ONE time. That’s a common fallacy many tell themselves. How much is your time worth really? Right now, it would seem it’s less than $200?
If you still feel the “Product CSV Import Suite” is too expensive, here’s another potential alternative for you…
@huykhong – I’m sorry you’ve received such ratings. As a buyer, I think rating an item 1 star solely because the rater is too ignorant to know how to color a div (or any page element) is very funny actually. While certainly no laughing matter, thanks for making me chuckle today!
The expectations some have are just ridiculous. If I could, I would say, “You bought a plugin. That’s all. That doesn’t mean the author has to style your site for you or even provide any instruction for you to do it yourself. Why? It falls outside the scope of support which is limited to the plugin itself. If you only knew how basic a skill this was, you’d do a facepalm for asking about in the first place especially given how easily the problem could probably be solved by yourself with a simple web search.”
Buy Nexus 5, fast updates and phone without bloatware is better.
Full disclosure: I have a Nexus 5. I’ve owned a Galaxy S (One) and a Galaxy S 2 too though.
Yes, no bloatware or update delays from EITHER your carrier OR the OEM (Samsung)!
TouchWiz should really be an app / service IMO that could simply be uninstalled (and would get updates through the Play Store) but it isn’t.
Only reason I’ve seen to get S4 / 5 over a Nexus 5 is if you decide that you simply can’t live without being able to control your IR devices with it.
I’m somewhat surprised that neither Google nor Apple ended up with them. Facebook always strikes me as a software only company and wouldn’t seem to know much about hardware / consumer product retailing. If they can the oculus vision happen faster, then I’d love to be proven wrong.
I remember that once upon a time PayPal (never used Skrill before) supported Nigeria. However, with Ebay being the parent company and the sheer amount of fraud coming from that country on that site, it was removed / banned. Perhaps if things ever improve there, they’ll consider supporting them again. Who knows? It’s gotta suck though for the honest folks that live there.
