Default Wishlist and Checkout

Great system!

Not sure if these features are available right now but these would be really helpful:

1. Allow users to click on a button to add a product to a wishlist wordpress page. It would make it easier for users to save their searches (items they like) and continue to shop until they are ready to purchase the items they found. There is a wordpress plugin WP Favorite Posts which works great but it doesn't capture the url, only the post id.

2. Possibly in conjunction with the wishlist, allow the users to purchase all their wishlist items without having to go to each individual store. For example, the user enters all their payment information and the orders are sent to all the individual stores for processing.

3. In the wordpress datafeedr page, it would be helpful to see the date and time of the last update.

Thank you.

Just passing through ...

1) I tried to find something for my stores, and the best I could find was the "NS LIKE THIS" plugin - but, it only works on posts, and search queries, and not pages. I'm currently using this on many blogs ... e.g. surf around http://PetLvr.com and like a few posts and then see the bottom line navigation link at the top (http://petlvr.com/my-liked-content/)

2) I know as an individual - knowing that your store is not your products and I go to the "real store" that sells the product - I would never leave payment information with you (generally speaking you, the affiliate). Why would anybody want to???

3) Dashboard/ Tools/ Datafeedr/ Update Log/ exists.

Hey 1800HART,

I appreciate the NS Like This plugin suggestion. A little different then what I'm looking for my site.

You make a great point! I too would personally feel more comfortable shopping from the actual store. In user testing though, I had some people give feedback that they would rather purchase from the store rather than go to individual stores. I guess everyone has their own preferences ; )

Thanks for the reference to the update log.

It's also not possible to do that with the API functionality the affiliate networks offer. You can not act as middleman basically and receive payment, or redirect payments to other merchants for products purchased.

It's technically not possible, and also no credit card processor would play this game with you

I appreciate the feedback.

That's good to know if any of my users were to ask in the future.

I've found that WP Favorite Posts works well for a wishlist with some minor adjustments to some of the php files (although I'm not a programmer so I have no idea if it's right...but it works!)

In a nutshell, I had to change the $post_id variable in the wp-favorite-posts.php file so that it would equal the product id of the item on datafeedr. Then I had to restructure the link that was being displayed in the wpfp-page-template.php file.

If you need more information, please message me.

What do you mean by the restructure? does it work for every single past and future product id? or, do you have to do that for every product?

Right now I have only added about 10 products as a test so I'm not sure if I can comment on past and future product ids, although it seems to be working. The plugin is dependent on every product to have a unique id number though.

Here is the code I would add to where I wanted users to be able to add to a wishlist:

Code:
<span class="wpfp-span">
  <img class="wpfp-img" title="Favorite" alt="Favorite" src="YOUR-SITES-URL/wp-content/plugins/wp-favorite-posts/img/heart.png">
  <img class="wpfp-hide wpfp-img" title="Loading" alt="Loading" src="YOUR-SITES-URL/wp-content/plugins/wp-favorite-posts/img/loading.gif">
  <a rel="nofollow" title="Add to wishlist" href="?wpfpaction=add&amp;postid=[product.id]" class="wpfp-link">Add to wishlist</a>
</span>
I replaced the $post_id variable in the wp-favorite-posts.php file under the function wpfp_link to:

Code:
$post_id = substr($_SERVER['REQUEST_URI'], (stripos($_SERVER['REQUEST_URI'],"=") + 1));
NOTE: My urls have an = sign before the product id

And then in the wpfp-page-template.php I had to configure the url that was displaying my product id. This part was tricky as it would be dependent on how your link structure is setup.

Hope that was helpful.

thanks!

Personally, that would drive me bananas always trying to remember what I did - with the constant automation of upgrades to plugins for compatibility or new versions of wordpress I'd probably not even notice long after I accidentally upgraded the WPFP plugin to wipeout any manual configuration

I.M.H.O. ... I always use child themes so I never have to worry about upgrades to the original theme and when you start playing with plugins, you are risking even more insecurities or lose everything on future upgrades.

If I can make a suggestion - in your ../wp-content/plugins/ folder - create a new (or rename existing) folder called MYversionWPFP or something like that and keep the old version there as well (but not activated) to see when updates are available and automatically update and you can compare if changes still valid. /2cents

That is so true! This is my first website I already feel like I've forgotten all the modifications I've made.

Great suggestion to create a backup. That should help out in the future.

I've read about child themes but it seems for some things I'm unable to do without making changes to the core theme files (really I don't have the technical knowledge to do otherwise).

I've written down the changes that I have made so that I can quickly update the themes after an upgrade.

Everyone is so helpful on the forum.

Thank you.

Hi fsuggest,

thank you for the helpful post, could you explain a little more, I've managed to get the wishlist to show my posts but nothings being added and it takes me to my homepage when selected,

NOTE: My urls have an = sign before the product id

And then in the wpfp-page-template.php I had to configure the url that was displaying my product id.

I would love to get this working but I'm unsure what to change at this point,

Regards,
Pauline.
