What is the required WordPress version?


Is this plugin compatible with WooCommerce 3.0+?

Yes! And backwards compatible with 2.6.

Will this plugin mess with any of my WordPress or WooCommerce settings?

No. Enabling the plugin leaves everything in the same state until you save the plugin options to apply your customizations. Reverting the plugin configuration back to default and/or disabling/uninstalling the plugin will leave everything as it was before you installed the plugin.

Where are the settings?

Visit WooCommerce > Settings, and find the “Admin Columns” tab on top.
On top of that page you’ll find links to switch between orders, products and coupon columns, as well as a page with the option to reset the column settings.

Why can’t I see the settings page?

By default you must be a user with the role of Administrator to edit the plugin options. To overwrite this limitation, use the filter hook “wcacm-admin-capability” in your theme’s functions.php and return the desired capability. Example:

add_filter( 'wcacm-admin-capability', function( $capability ) {
	return 'read';
}, 10, 1 );

How do I reorder columns?

On the settings page, you find lists of columns for orders, products and coupons. Each list item has a dotted grid icon to the left of it which can be clicked and dragged. Drag and drop the list items as you prefer and press “Save changes” to save this configuration.
The next time you visit the corresponding list table page you’ll see your custom order reflected.

How do I add columns?

You can add any of the predefined additional columns by checking the checkbox behind it on the settings page. Press “Save changes” to confirm your custom configuration.

How do I remove columns?

You can hide/remove columns by unchecking the checkbox behind it on the settings page. Press “Save changes” to confirm your custom configuration.

How do I revert back to the defaults?

Visit WooCommerce > Settings > Admin Columns > Reset. Here you’ll find a button to reset the configuration. Any changes made by the plugin are reverted to the situation you had before using this plugin.

A column is checked to be visible but I don’t see it.

If you have hidden a column via “Screen Options” on the corresponding page with the current user account, it will stay hidden even though it’s enabled in the Admin Column Manager’s configuration. To see the column after it’s been hidden in Screen Options, open Screen Options again and check the checkbox. The show/hide state via Screen Options applies to each user account individually.

I'm still stuck!
