These demo videos use the Shopify app: Bulk Edit Product Descriptions in Shopify

I’m in the process of adding a lot more videos. Stay tuned!

And by the way, if you have a question that you would like me to demonstrate, then send an email to hello@programmerhat.com!

How to restore a backup

When you click “Save”, backups are automatically created. What if you made a mistake and you want to rollback the changes? You can follow this video to see how to restore the previous version.

This backup saves a maximum of 150 product descriptions.

Why is the HTML not being replaced?

Using the bulk edit HTML feature requires a little bit of HTML skill. It’s very important to get the exact characters right, or the app will not match the HTML code.

The easiest way to get the exact HTML to edit is to look at the HTML of this app’s rich text editor, *not* Shopify’s rich text editor. Sometimes there are very slight differences in where the spaces or quotes are replaced.

You can look at the app’s rich text editor by clicking the top right button that says “Change mode”, screenshot:

Then you should see HTML that looks like this:

How to filter by collection

The app requires a collection ID (numbers), not collection name.

You can find the collection ID in the URL when you navigate to the collection. See this screenshot where the ID (all numbers) is highlighted in the URL box.

So the correct ID here is “441163907389”. Use this ID to filter by collection.
