WooCommerce: Allow Editing Of Order Regardless Of Status


A workflow for orders that I manage requires the ability to modify  orders in completed or processing status. WooCommerce’s 2.2 update removed the ability to edit orders that were in certain statuses.

Required Plugins


Add the following to your functions.php file


You can now edit an order in the admin order edit screen regardless of the order status. This is not suggested for use with sites that have customers pay for orders immediately, but instead for sites that have post-pay or an invoicing setup.
