A lot of WooCommerce sellers use tools to import products. There are a few popular tools like:
FiboSearch Pro can slow down the import process because it tries to update the search index after importing each product. This is not an optimal method if you have a lot of products or import products regularly.
We recommend disabling the update of the search index on the fly before running the import process and enabling it when the import is completed.
How to do this? There are two ways. The choice depends on how you run an importer. The first method involves an importer that runs via PHP, and the second way is for an importer that runs manually.
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');
Step 1: Install and activate the Code Snippets plugin
Go to Snippets
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 the custom snippet after finishing the import process
Step 7: Repeat steps 4 to 6 before each import
