Today I found that Aliexpress began to add the suffix to each product title (when importing), for example:
-in MP3 Player from Consumer Electronics on Aliexpress.com | Alibaba Group

Can you add an automatic replacement (deletion) of text to a plugin?

Seeing as we all have to edit product titles anyway, what's the point? (You're not one of these lazy/stupid people who DON'T edit titles, are you?)

Even if it was possible (which it isn't for obvious reasons), why add extra bloat to the plugin for something that is totally unnecessary?

We already had communication on another issue. I understand that we have completely different views on the online business ... You recommend 50 good products, but we now have more than 10к products, and plan to start with 25-30k products. Sorry for that. Our views and working methods are too different.

We do not edit the titles of each item. We add 36 products at a time from the supplier’s store page. Products simultaneously add two employees. To edit the titles, we export the wp_posts table and make the necessary changes in a text editor, replacing or deleting text and using the synonymizer, if necessary. This approach is much more effective in our case.

There is also nothing supernatural. The text autoreplace function is standard for the similar plugin - Ali2Woo. And trust me, this is very convenient.

Of course, I can do automatic changes directly in the database using a regular expression:
-in .*? on Aliexpress.com .| Alibaba Group

However, the automation of this process would be very appropriate.

No. I don't. But I have mentioned that some people have only 50 good products and do quite well. (Fact) What I DID say was that having 50 "good" products is better than having 1000s of boring crap ones. Apparently you think otherwise. Fair enough. But putting words in my mouth about that topic is not only unhelpful to the current (non) issue, but it's also totally irrelevant to this (non) issue. Just stick to the topic at hand.

It's the same. You edit the titles. It makes no difference where or how you edit them. Having the plugin do it is not only impossible on a product by product basis (because they are all different), it's also pointless like I already said. You just stated that you edit them anyway.

Products simultaneously add two employees.
Sorry, that makes no sense at all.

Yes. I'm well aware of that, and there you go again putting words in my mouth. I did not make any reference to "magic" being required. But anyway, replace it with what? Every product is different (That was the "obvious" bit I was referring to) If it's simply to remove the "Aliexpress Alibaba" bit ... again, what's the point if the titles are being edited anyway, either normally or via the database tables?

Of course, I can do automatic changes directly in the database using a regular expression:
-in .*? on Aliexpress.com .| Alibaba Group
Of course, you can just not worry about it as the titles are being edited anyway. *sigh*

using the synonymizer
Seriously? What totally awful titles they would be. It's just as bad as those terrible "Article spinners". Some things just can't replace the human touch. Especially when it comes to the written word with titles and product descriptions. It makes the difference between a "quality site" with engaging and quality content, titles and descriptions and a boring, robotic, cookie cutter style site. What a terrible method.

But that's just my opinion.

I think you should worry about more important things. But that's just my opinion.

The problem is somewhat deeper - a suffix for the URL is also automatically added. Like this:
-in-mp3-player-from-consumer-electronics-on-aliexpress-com-alibaba-group

This increases the number of gestures to bring the site in order.

In an attempt to show my wrong, you lose the main idea of creating an Alidropship plugin - automating the processes of working with Aliexpress. You can even automate the process of editing titles.

With all the diversity, in the process of manual editing you will use a limited number of text replacement options. To make the text unique, you can create a lot of autochange rules. In the end, the result of automatic and manual editing will be virtually indistinguishable and will save you many hours that you can spend with greater benefit. For example, use for more important things.

When it comes to creating quality sites with original and engaging titles, descriptions and other site content, automation can only do so much. That is, it can handle the "non creative" aspects such as importing basic details, images etc and handling the order processing. In this case you are wrong. Successful sites still need the human touch and a little "work".

I'm afraid you will have to wait several more decades for artificial intelligence to be as good as a human's before you get your "Flip the switch and sit back and have a beer" drop-shipping plugin. lol ;) Meanwhile, a "little" actual work is still required. And it's made much easier by not wasting time worrying about pedantic issues that really are a non issue.

I don't see how it is possible. If ever the system edit the titles
He's using this ...
the synonymizer,
It's like those "Article Spinner" aps that replace words with similar meaning words. They're not very accurate or reliable.

Chances are the titles will be horrible.
More than likely. Or at least cold, bland and unappealing. The "human touch" is really needed for product titles, descriptions and definitely blogs/articles.

You have the talent to turn any discussion into a meaningless dispute.
Yes ... pedantic time wasters worrying about pointless issues do have that effect on me at times ... lol ;)

Aliexpress added technical info to product titles.
Edit them.

Aliexpress sellers add HEAPS of unnecessary info into product titles ... what to do?
Edit them.

Get it? No difference. It ALL gets edited in the end.

Please change the settings of the Alidropship parser to avoid trash capture.
Try making pointless requests in the appropriate place ... https://forum.alidropship.com/forums/suggestion-forum.7/ along with all the other time wasting requests. It's off topic for this thread.

I seriously doubt it would be considered though. They have far more important things to worry about with the AliWoo plugin. 99.99999% of people simply edit the titles before or after import ... as per usual. But if you can convince them to make changes for 0.000001% of people (you alone) ... then well done!

;)
