Guest users

↑ Back to top

If the option to allow guests to create wishlists is checked, an unlogged in user visiting the shop will be able to add products to their wishlist.

If the visitor is not logged in and add a product to the wishlist, this data is stored in a cookie in the users browser. The wishlist products will be added to the user’s Default wishlist (stored in the database) once they logs into their account.

Products added to the wishlist can be displayed on the Wishlist page, specified in the plugin settings (the page containing the wishlist shortcode).

  • A guest user can only add products to one single wishlist, even if Multi wishlist mode is enabled in settings.
  • A guest user can not use the sharing feature, since the wishlist data is stored in the users browser.

Logged in users

↑ Back to top

Single wishlist mode

If a logged in user adds a product to the wishlist, this product will be added to the user’s Default wishlist (stored in the database).

Products added to the wishlist can be displayed on the Wishlist page, specified in the plugin settings (the page containing the wishlist shortcode) or from the Wishlists tab under My account.

Multi wishlist mode

When adding a product to a wishlist by clicking on the wishlist icon, a popup window will open. In this window you select which list you want to add the product to. You also have the possibility to create a new wishlist from this view.

Edit and share wishlists

↑ Back to top

When Multi wishlist mode is enabled you have the possibility to edit the wishlist Name, Description and Type.

When a wishlist Type is set as a Public, the user will have the option to share its URL via the wishlist options menu.

  • To edit the wishlists, go to My Account > Wishlists and select a wishlist (this also provides the user with the wishlist sharing option).

How does the private/public system work?

↑ Back to top
  • A public wishlist can shared with other users and displayed on the wishlist page specified in the settings.
  • A private wishlist cannot be accessed by other users.

How do I share a public wishlist?

↑ Back to top

Upon viewing the contents of a wishlist, the options to delete or edit the wishlist will be available below the wishlists title. If the wishlist is public, the option to share the wishlist will appear next to the latter.
When clicking the share icon, the wishlists URL will appear. Click on the Copy link button to add the link into your clipboard (the full text of the link will also be displayed in an alert window notification).

How do I add product variants in the single product view?

↑ Back to top

When the wishlist icon is empty, it means that the product in question or any of its variants have not been added to a wishlist. By selecting a product variant and then clicking on an unfilled icon will add that specific variant to a wishlist.

Should the user wish to add some other variant instead, all they has to do is click the icon again, thereby both leaving the icon unfilled and removing the product and any of its variants from a wishlist, and then select which variation they would like to add.
