Page Categorization for Product Edit

Organized sorting of Product features for you to easily find and modify as you go. If your vendors want to make changes to only the “Inventory” section and “RMA” section, they can easily do it by jumping from one section to another with the sidebar categorization.

The Dokan plugin has many features and modules. These features all have their individual menu section in the vendor dashboard. But the admin may want to temporarily disable some menu items, reorder them, or even rename them for better understanding.

All this is possible using the vendor menu manager feature. This feature will allow the admin to reorder the entire vendor dashboard, rename them, and enable or disable them.

Here you can see we have renamed menu names in the vendor dashboard-

    Thank you for the valuable advice, but regarding the dokan vendor dashboard it contains a malfunction that prevents any benefit from it, as after activating it, sellers cannot attach pictures of the products. This malfunction is known to everyone who used that component, and the comments on the plugin show that. It certainly provides a wonderful addition. In terms of aesthetics and coordination, but as I said, this malfunction makes it useless, and this is truly unfortunate
