Variations and Attributes generator for ProcessWire

Applying Bulk Actions

Using the action select dropdowns in the variations configurations and attributes lists dashboards, you can easily apply actions to several configurations or attributes in one go. The process is straightforward:

  1. Select one or more items listed in the dashboard.
  2. Select an action to apply (bottom part of the dashboard).
  3. Click the Apply button.

The system will let you know whether your action was successfully applied and if not, the reasons why. There are a couple of things to be aware of:

In addition to the above actions, both dashboards have input to control pagination and the sort order of items in the dashboards. Number of items to display per dashboard page and the sort criteria are persistent across sessions for the current user.

The Apply Variations Configuration action will link the selected variations configuration in the list to the current page (i.e., the page that opened the modal window). Since a variations field in a page can only be linked to one variations configuration at a time, if you have multiple variations configuration selected when you apply this action, an error will be displayed and your action will not take effect. For this action, a Confirm checkbox will be displayed when the action is selected. The checkbox must be ticked or an error will be displayed when you try to apply the action.
