A lot of WooCommerce sellers use tools to import products. There are a few popular tools like:
FiboSearch Pro can slow down the importing process because it tries to update the search index after importing each product. It’s not an optimal way if you have a lot of products or import products regularly.
The optimal way to work with import tools
We recommend disabling the update of the search index on the fly before running the import process and enabling it when the importing is completed.
How to do it? There are two ways. The choice depends on how you run an importer. The first way is for an importer that runs via PHP, and the second way is for an importer that runs manually.
Disable updater programmatically
If you are familiar with PHP and you run the import programmatically, you can do something like this:
add_filter('dgwt/wcas/tnt/disable_updater', '__return_true'); // run importer... add_filter('dgwt/wcas/tnt/disable_updater', '__return_false');
Disable updater manually
Step 1: Install and activate the Code Snippets plugin
Step 2: Go to Snippets -> Add new
Step 3: Add the following code
add_filter( 'dgwt/wcas/tnt/disable_updater', '__return_true' );
Step 4: Enable the snippet
Step 5: Run your importer tools
Step 6: Disable custom snippet after finishing the import process
Step 7: Repeat steps 4 to 6 before each import
