Wordpress Filters

Yesterday I asked a very similar  question but the answer does not work in this case.  I have a Wordpress Website that has a Core Function and I want to change a label inside of the function.  I have created my own custom-functions.php file.

The Core Wordpress File is as follows:
	public function get_columns(){

		$columns = array(
			'cb'                  => '<input type="checkbox" />',
			'status'              => __( 'Status', 'woocommerce-subscriptions' ),
			'title'               => __( 'Subscription', 'woocommerce-subscriptions' ),
			'user'                => __( 'User', 'woocommerce-subscriptions' ),
			'order_id'            => __( 'Order', 'woocommerce-subscriptions' ),
			'start_date'          => __( 'Start Date', 'woocommerce-subscriptions' ),
			'expiry_date'         => __( 'Expiration', 'woocommerce-subscriptions' ),
			'end_date'            => __( 'End Date', 'woocommerce-subscriptions' ),
			'trial_expiry_date'   => __( 'Trial End Date', 'woocommerce-subscriptions' ),
			'last_payment_date'   => __( 'Last Payment', 'woocommerce-subscriptions' ),
			'next_payment_date'   => __( 'Next Payment', 'woocommerce-subscriptions' ),
			'renewal_order_count' => __( 'Renewals', 'woocommerce-subscriptions' ),
		);

		return $columns;
	}

Open in new window

I'm trying to use the manage_edit function but I don't think I have it correct.  I want to change the Label 'Order' to 'My Orders':
add_filter ( 'manage_edit-get_columns', 'filter_order_id', 11 );
function filter_order_id( $columns)	{
	$columns['order_id'] = __( 'Policy Number', 'woocommerce-subscriptions' );
	return $columns;
}

k, this is not a custom post type page, which is why the filter isn't working. This is a custom page associated with a premium subscriptions extension.  Looking at this documentation, http://docs.woothemes.com/document/subscriptions/develop/filter-reference/, it does not appear that WC supplies a hook that allows you to change these columns.

Really, the filter you were trying to use will only work if your on a CPT admin page.  I'm not not sure you can do what you want to do without direct modification of the extension code.

This requires using the filter hook that's associated with the post type you're going to change. With WooCommerce, that means the post type name should be "product".

function alter_product_columns($columns) {
  // make modifications to the columns here
  return $columns
}
add_filter('manage_edit-product_columns', 'alter_product_columns', 99);

You may need to set a high priority to override the filter function used in WC, for example I used 99 above. You may need to look into the WC code the see what they are using and just use a bigger number.

The filter for changing columns is in the form:
manage_edit-{$POST_TYPE}_columns

Open in new window


and the filter for changing the content of columns is:
manage_{$POST_TYPE}_posts_custom_column

I'm not sure how to re-write my function above to match what you have offered.  Can you elaborate just a bit?

I think that what you have already should work

function alter_product_columns($columns) {
  $columns['order_id'] = __( 'Policy Number');
  return $columns
}
add_filter('manage_edit-product_columns', 'alter_product_columns', 20);

Open in new window


I removed the 'woocommerce-subscriptions' text domain from the __() function, I doubt that WC has that translated. I also changed the priority, did some digging around in WC and they are using the default, which is 10.

The only real problem with what you had was the hook you were using to call your function, sorry, I may have confused things by adding a lot of extra stuff.

The hook that's important is manage_edit-{$POST_TYPE}_columns
WC uses the post type of product
so you replace {$POST_TYPE} with product and the hook becomes manage_edit-product_columns

Sorry the following does not work:
function alter_product_columns($columns) {
  $columns['order_id'] = __( 'Policy Number');
  return $columns
}
add_filter('manage_edit-product_columns', 'alter_product_columns', 20);

Open in new window


What else can I supply to help us determine the issue?

Hube02Commented:
what is the URL of the page with these columns?

I don't need your site URL, just the part past /wp-admin/
