I'm trying to change 600 products so that the node SKU is set to the value of the node's title. I want to use VBO to accomplish this, with the "execute arbitrary PHP script" option. Here is the code I am using:

$new_node = node_load($object->nid);
$new_node->model = $object->title;

However, this does not work. Does anyone know where I'm going wrong here?

  • i believe you need to prepare the node for editing. see if node_object_prepare($new_node); will help you out. node_object_prepare – au_stan Dec 27 '12 at 16:41
  • did u use std class? – monymirza Dec 27 '12 at 17:08
  • I ended up using uc_product_power_tools and then looping through my products with a php script to update. Thanks for you help – Stephen Topsy Jan 8 '13 at 16:59

The only way I could get it to work was to do this:

$node->model = $sku;

The reason I could not get values was because of revisions. I changed function "uc_product_get_models". Line 1357 changed to:

 $models[] = db_query('SELECT model FROM {uc_products} WHERE nid = :nid order by vid desc', array(':nid' => $nid))->fetchField();

I know changing core is bad, but:

  • It seems to be fixed in the dev version
  • I have no idea when the dev version is going to be released again, but when it does, the change will already be there.
