[resolved] WooCommerce: Shipstation plugin is broken

I worked with a client who uses the Shipstation plugin. After updating to the latest version of WooCommerce (2.2), the plugin stopped working and its tab under “settings” could not be clicked. On top, some of the dropdowns got broken. Here’s the fix, hoping that Shipstation updates the plugin asap.

Fix 1: make Shipstation tab clickable in WooCommerce 2.2

// Look for "woocommerce" and change it to "wc-settings" in the function below

function tab() {
	$class = 'nav-tab';
	if ( $this->current_tab == 'woo_ss' ) $class .= ' nav-tab-active';
	echo '<a href="' . admin_url( 'admin.php?page=wc-settings&tab=woo_ss' ) . '" class="' . $class . '">ShipStation</a>';

Fix 2: fix the Shipstation “import” dropdown in WooCommerce 2.2

// Look for "options > array" and instead of the current value enter order statuses manually

'name' => __( 'Order Status to move it to when the shipnotify action is presented', $this->domain ),
		'desc' => '',
		'tip' => '',
		'id' => 'woo_ss_import_status',
		'css' => '',
		'std' => '',
		'type' => 'select',
		'options' => array ( "Pending" => "Pending", "Processing" => "Processing", "Cancelled" => "Cancelled", "Refunded" => "Refunded", "Failed" => "Failed" )

Where to add this snippet?

You can place PHP snippets at the bottom of your child theme functions.php file (before "?>" if you have it). CSS, on the other hand, goes in your child theme style.css file. Make sure you know what you are doing when editing such files - if you need more guidance, please take a look at my free video tutorial "Where to Place WooCommerce Customization?"

Does this snippet (still) work?

Please let me know in the comments if everything worked as expected. I would be happy to revise the snippet if you report otherwise (please provide screenshots). I have tested this code with Storefront theme, the WooCommerce version listed above and a WordPress-friendly hosting on PHP 7+.
