Clear all menu_order values from products

Used rarely as a one-time job to remove any `menu_order` setting so posts can display alphabetically on archives. Also useful to reset prior to using the WP Admin > Products > Sorting feature to manually set product ordering.

Description

add_action( 'admin_notices', function() {
	global $wpdb;
	$response = $wpdb->update( $wpdb->posts, [ 'menu_order' => '0' ], [ 'post_type' => 'product' ] );
	echo sprintf(
		'<div class="notice notice-info is-dismissible"><p><pre>%s</pre></p></div>',
		print_r( $response, true ) . ' ' . $sql
	);
} );
