Hi there brilliant minds!It is a great plugin it does well with its functionality, BUT it’s blocking Woocommerce to export and import products.If anyone is having the same experience with the latest WC version please comment here.The way to get around this issue is to disable the plugin temporarily, export and import, and then activate it again. Not a real Fan of doing this but that is for now. Until some great mind takes a pick on the code and can fix it for us? I would guess it might have deprecated code and since it has not been updated for so long it is having compatibility issues with the latest Woocommerce version.That’s all.You all have a wonderful day and cheers smile and turn your positive mind God Bless you! 😉

Plugin does what its meant to do but also stops any search results appearing. Maybe a compatability issue with the more recent versions of Wordpress.

Works as advertised. It allows marking products as discontinued to keep them in your system without having to trash them or set the inventory to zero or use another workaround that just isn’t as accurate. You can create global settings and tailor settings to each individual product. My only suggestion would be to set a direct link to the plugin settings from the plugins page or to add this information to an FAQ to make it easier to find for first-time users. I found them eventually where you would expect, in Woocommerce > Settings > Products.
