FAQs

Does YITH WooCommerce Wishlist allows adding an “add to wishlist” button on the products on shop page and archive pages?

Yes, from version 3.0 the plugin also allows showing the Add to wishlist button on your shop pagecategory pagesproduct shortcodesproduct sliders, and all the other places where the WooCommerce products’ loop is used.

What are the main changes in plugin translation?

Recently YITH WooCommerce Wishlist has been selected to be included in the “translate.wordpress.org” translate programme. In order to import correctly the plugin strings in the new system, we had to change the text domain from ‘yit’ to ‘yith-woocommerce-wishlist’.

Once the plugin is imported into the translate.wordpress.org system, the translations of other languages will be downloadable directly from WordPress, without using any .po and .mo files.

Moreover, users will be able to participate in a more direct way to plugin translations, suggesting texts in their languages in the dedicated tab on translate.wordpress.org.

During this transition step, .po and .mo files will be used as usual, but in order to be recognized by WordPress, they must have a new nomenclature and be renamed as: yith-woocommerce-wishlist-‹WORDPRESS LOCALE›.po yith-woocommerce-wishlist-‹WORDPRESS LOCALE›.mo If your theme overrides plugin templates, it might happen that they are still using the old textdomain (‘yit’), which is no longer used as reference for translation.

If you are experiencing problems with translation of your YITH WooCommerce Wishlist and the theme you are using includes wishlist templates (such as add-to-wishlist.php, add-to-wishlist-button.php, wishlist-view,php), you could try to update them with the most recent version included in the plugin (never forget to make a copy of your project before you apply any change).

If you want to keep customisations applied by the theme to wishlist templates (still using the old textdomain), then, you should ask theme developers to update custom templates and replace the old textdomain with the most recent one.

I am currently using Wishlist plugin with Catalog Mode enabled in my site. Prices for products should disappear, yet they still appear in the wishlist page. Can I remove them?

Yes, of course you can. To avoid the Wishlist page to show product prices, you can hide the price column on the wishlist table. Go to YITH plugins -> Wishlist -> Wishlist page options -> Wishlist detail page and disable the option “Product price”.

Have you encountered anomalies after plugin update, that did not exist in the previous version?

This might depend on the fact that your theme overrides plugin templates. Check if the developer of your theme has released a compatibility update with version 3.0 or later of YITH WooCommerce Wishlist. As an alternative, you can try the plugin with a WordPress default theme to leave out any possible influences by the theme.

Wishlist page returns a 404 error?

Try to regenerate permalinks from Settings -> Permalinks by simply saving them again.

Can I change the style of “Add to wishlist” button?

Yes, you can change the colors of background, text and border or apply a custom css. You can also use a link or a button for the “Add to wishlist” feature.

Can I move the position of “Add to wishlist” button?

Yes, you can move the button to another default position or you can also use the shortcode inside your theme code.

Can I customize the wishlist page?

Yes, the page is a simple template and you can override it by putting the file template “wishlist.php” inside the “woocommerce” folder of the theme folder.

How to add a new field to Ask an Estimate popup?

You can add new fields by enabling the option Show additional notes popup as described here.

Does this plugin support variable products?

Yes. The plugin adds the variation to the wishlist instead of the generic product if the user has selected one before clicking on the Add to Wishlist button.

To give users the possibility to select the variation directly from the Wishlist, you can use the plugin in combination with YITH Color and Label Variations.
