Some of my users want to go straight back to the list of products once they hit the ‘update’ button. This is because they make a change, preview, if it is OK update and then want to move on to the list of products to search for the next one to update.
As a workflow I can understand this.
So I found out how to do it and just want to share the code snippet with the community if anyone wants to do similar.
// redirect direct to listing page after updating a product
if ($pt=="product") $dest = home_url() ."/wp-admin/edit.php?post_type=product";
Hope it is useful to some people
