3rd Party Plugin Compatibility: WooCommerce + Hide Out of Stock Products #674

raamdev opened this issue Feb 19, 2016 · 8 comments

raamdev commented Feb 19, 2016

A user report indicates that when "hide out of stock products from the catalog" is enabled in WooCommerce, and a product goes out of stock, the catalog pages are not updated (i.e., the old cache file is loaded, which shows the now-out-of-stock product that should be hidden).

In #597 we improved compatibility with WooCommerce and stock changes, however it sounds like there's room for more improvement here so I'm opening this GitHub issue so that we can look into this more closely.

@raamdev I'm unable to reproduce this problem with WordPress v4.5.3 + Comet Cache v160709 + WooCommerce v2.6.3 using these steps.

  • Installed, activated, enabled Comet Cache v160709
  • Installed, activated, enabled WooCommerce v2.6.3
  • Enabled Hide out of stock items from the catalog in WooCommerce > Settings >Products > Inventory
  • Created two sample products that are both in stock. Both are showing up on /shop page.
  • Changed stock status of Product#1 to out of stock
  • Went back to /shop page and Product#1 is not displayed, as expected.
  • Tried searching for Product#1, using the WooCommerce Product Search widget, and got the message No products were found matching your selection.

Went back to /shop page and Product#1 is not displayed, as expected.

The reason for you being unable to reproduce it this way could be because you changed this from the admin, where a change in the stock status is also accompanied by the save_post action behind-the-scenes. Whereas only changing the stock status can be done by updating just a meta value, which Comet Cache does not pick up on.

I suggest fixing this by attaching to this hook in WC.

Comet Cache already attaches to woocommerce_product_set_stock, so what needs to be determined is why that's not enough, or if we need to attach to both.

You'll need the *_status hook variation also, because of this WC function that makes a call only to update the stock status, not the stock count itself.
