I would like to set up something where the visitor can get on a list and get alerted when ANY new product is added to the cart. Can your plugin do this? Thanks!
I’m afraid not yet. It has been requested several times so it will come in the future. If you are still looking in a month or so, do check back
Thanks for your speedy reply. I certainly will
Hi dear support, i want to translate in french this words : https://i.imgur.com/vW1dtAU.png
- “You are subscribed to the following email notifications:”
- “I love”
- “Below is a list of products that you have marked as favorites”
I search in ftp in this path : wp-content/plugins/woocommerce-bolder-product-alerts/languages and i try to modify without any success.
Thank you to help me dear support.
Sure, at the moment there is only an English and Spanish translation, but you can certainly add your own. It’s often easier to use a plugin to manage this, but if you would like to do it manually, you will need to copy the be-product-alerts-en_US.po file and change it’s name so that en_US is your language code instead. So if your site is a registered France local, it would be ‘be-product-alerts-fr_FR’. From there you can open it in a file editor like PoEdit, make the translations, and then compile it so that it generates the .mo file.
If you are not familiar with doing any of this already, I would highly recommend using a translation plugin like this one: https://wordpress.org/plugins/loco-translate/
The probleme is the follow :
In the path /languages : it’s already “be-product-alerts-fr_FR” file.
Look at this url : https://i.imgur.com/xD3UvPa.png
I ever try to copy this file to /wp-content/languages/plugins without any success. I would like to have another answer please.
Thank you for assistance
My apologies, the translations are being removed in an upcoming update later this month. The problem is that they were all pre-translated by computer, and much of it is not accurate. After man complaints, it was best to delete them and start over.
If you have that file, and some things are translated while others are not, then the file is not up to date with all of the text from the plugin. I can offer you a newly compiled English copy if you open a support ticket, or you can use the plugin above to manage this as well. It can use the translation file in the plugin, or it can extract them again to ensure it has all of them.
So what’s the best solution ? You send me /languages files ? Can you send me update with the good files ? I have actually install and settings your plugin since 1 month.
It’s up to you and what you are more comfortable with. Either way I can send you the language file, you just have to remember to compile it with a language file editor. Editing the .po file is not enough. It must be compiled into a .mo file. So you will need either a computer program to do this, or you will need the above suggested plugin. If it’s not something you’re familiar with, I recommend the plugin because it will help you translate, compile, and put the file on the right place (you can’t put it in this plugins languages folder because it would get overwritten every time you upgrade).
Thank you for answer, so the best way is to download it and delete the older plugin to install it ?
I hope that translate language files will be fine so.
I know how to edit .pot and compile it in .po and .mo any problem for it i just would like to hold my actually install and just you to send me file that i need to replace in ftp, that all But if you tell me that download again plugin will be works ?
In waiting for you
No no, you don’t need to delete this plugin. If you are familiar with managing po files then I will just send you an updated language file. It seems it did not make it to the last update. The problem is that I cannot send you files through CodeCanyon like this. If you would prefer, you can also send me an email here and I will respond with an attachment.
Is it possible to make the “notify me” when the product is back in stock part on the main shop catalogue page instead of clicking on the product then showing it there? and I want to hide the email box completely, I just need the button there so they can click on it.
Is there any css code or anything I can add to the functions.php to make this happen pleasse? This will solve most of my problems. Thanks.
I left you a more detailed message in your support ticket. Anything is possible really, it just might need some tinkering of files to make it happen.
After the product has been restocked, it doesn’t notify me on email? Do I have to do it manually?
No, so long as it is done through one of the WooCommerce editing fields it should be sent automatically. The only time it does not is if you are using a third party plugin to manage your shipping.
I did that, but still it doesn’t notify me. Also, when I choose auto-delete, It doesn’t record that in the statistics?
Another point, There is a problem with unregistered users who are willing to notify on restock, It will keep sending them notify on restock, and not one time only?
It’s possible you have something conflicting, but it’s difficult to say. Please ensure that you have the latest version of WooCommerce as some recent changes have affected how it is processed. I would still recommend opening a support ticket for further debugging if it continues to be a problem.
It regards to the restocking alerts, yes, they are a one time thing as this time. It’s possible to modify the code otherwise, but it’s not recommended as there is currently no way to opt out of the notifications. In many countries that is required for any subscription form of email, and guests do not currently have a unique link to do so. It is on the roadmap for a future version to work out a system where guests can be able to do this, but it’s a wide scope project so it will take some time.
I am still facing a problem? Can you please help me out? It doesnt work the way how it should, I updated and did everything.
I’m happy to take a closer look, but it would be best to open a support ticket to continue. This way you can leave login credentials privately and share more information a little easier.
I’m seriously interested in buying your “product alert for Woo” but I have severals question before. If you ask “YES” to all … you will have a new client
As there no update in the log from October 21st 2016 …. ( opus sounds like your website logs are not uptodate, I saw on CC -> Last Update 8 August 17 )
Is it WP 4.9.4 compatible ?
Is it Woocomerce 3.3.1 compatible ?
Is it WPML compatible ?
Is it “custom product type” compatible ?
Can I use shortcodes in title fields for example (in case of is not WPML compatible) ?
Can I put a % value for low stock quantity ?
Can I use a shortcode to place the “favorite” or “keep me updated” button where I want ? (I hope)
Is it compatible with this plugin https://wordpress.org/plugins/email-templates/ ?
Is it GDPR Compliant yet ? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/General_Data_Protection_Regulation Dead line May 25 2018 !!!
Can I activate (“yes” status) the “Low inventory notifications on products I love” , “Sale notifications on products I love” and “restocking alerts” by default when customer hit the “favorite” button ?
Keep the good work!
If there is anything else I can answer for you, just let me know!
Waaa great . Sounds very attractive so
I will buy it to try soon … hope the shortcodes will be able
Ok I’m testing your plugin and I see in your documentation that you have only one page in the my-account section (endpoint) to list subscription and favorited product ? How can I achieve this ?
Actually your script create two links/pages . one for subscription and one for favorited …
Still waiting for the shortcode option to place the favorite button where I want … but in the maintime, could you kindly tell me what (short)code I need to use to place the button where I want in my template ? TIA
Welll . ... Should be great if you can add a new text field for changing the button text when the product is favorited and a new icon too
FYI, in my case the icon list is not “visible” in settings I only see little square instead of icons, but if I click on an icon it appear on the preview and works fine in frontend :-/
And for sure . ... and it’s a VERY BAD NEWS .. your plugin is not 100% WPML compatible
When I click on the button from my main language the button is ajax refreshed for active status but if I switch for the same product in other language, the status button is like “not favorited” ... however, the product appear on the “favorited products” (endpoint page) ... If I click again on the button from my second language, is added to the favorited page too … so same product appear twice :-/
Feel free to ask me in private for access to my lab and see by yourself TIA
More feedback …
Looks like the YES/NO on product-subscriptions page (endpoint) are not translatable with WPML (string missing ?) :-(((((
I want to change for activated/deactivated for my 3 langs
Should be more user friendly to add a headline with : Options / Status / Action titles
For text description of the subscription / status of the subscription (yes/no
) / Action to subscribe or unsubscribe
I definitely need to show all in one page like the screenshot in your documentation
I think that it for the front end view . ... I need to try email functionality and content (translation … )
Please add a dismiss function for this alert in back end :
” Attention, Due to limitations on many email servers, you may experience issues with this plugin when sending more than a few emails at once. It may mark your emails as spam and block any more from sending. ”
To be continued … ( I hope not )
And to satisfy your curiosity :
At this time you can only specify a specific quantity to send out the low stock alerts. However I am curious what you mean by %. What would it be a percentage of, as native WooCommerce only has the one stock field for current stock quantity.
In case of selling events tickets, you know from the beginning the max quantity available but it’s not the same between events … so if you put quantity low stock alert 10% . ... for an event with 5000 tickets available the alert will be 50 but for another event with max 3000 tickets …. alert will be qty 30
In fact the must will be to let the customer put the low quantity of HIS choice BY PRODUCT ^^
In regards to the last response explaining the percentage, I’m afraid by default WooCommerce doesn’t store what the original stock value was before purchases. Your event plugin may, but that would require customization for that plugin specifically. Might I suggest instead using the override in cases like this? Each product has a new tab in the settings that allows you to override some of the main settings for just that product. One of these is the stock quantity for low stock alerts!
Ok I’ll do in a while
Thank you kindly. I will look it over today and respond when I have more information for you.
I wonder if your plugin can be used to alert ads on a WP website using the following WP Classify theme:
(This theme uses woocommerce, but I would like that Alerts apply on all ads, not only on WC products).
Is it possible with your plugin, please?
I’m afraid this plugin is written specifically for WooCommerce so it will only be able to recognize products made within that system and no other post types.
Hello, I would like to export the email addresses list so I can use in email marketing, will your plugin have the way to do it? Thank you!
I’m afraid it does not have a CSV export at this time, but if you are familiar with phpMyAdmin you can always retrieve them from the database and save as a CSV file from there.
Hi, I bought your Plugin a few hours ago.
when trying to make a simulation
I am getting HTTP ERROR 500 when trying to write the stock to a product that was stock = 0 and the new stock value is not recorded.
this product has email addresses to receive notification
I use the WP Mail SMTP plugin to send emails
What can I do to avoid this error?
I am sorry to hear you have experienced an error with this. Often times these 500 errors are actually PHP errors, but your server handles them a little differently. If you would like to open a support ticket, I can try to help debug this further. The comments section here is very limited so a support ticket would be easier.
another situation is that when I try to send an email manually
goes to a screen with the message:
You have been waiting patiently and now it is finally here…
—-—-— x —-—-—--
and does not leave this screen and the stock notification is not sent
sorry to have opened another topic in the comments, was to have continued in the previous topic
I do not know how to return this message
I’ve enabled site debugging
and helps one to understand what happens
I am returning the following message
Notice: Undefined offset: 11173 in /var/www/mundialmegastore.com.br/htdocs/wp-content/plugins/woocommerce-bolder-product-alerts/inc/class-email-addresses.php on line 333
I think it would be best to login and see what is going on. I’ve never seen the email printed out like that. It should have just been sent without you seeing the content like that. The notice there is the lowest level message PHP returns so it’s not impacting any of this. I can check to see if it happens on my site as well but it’s not something I run into yet.
If you have not done so already, please open a support ticket so we can share information and files better.
Hi. Loving this plugin so far!
But I’ve been trying to test the “Favorites” feature along with the “On Sale” notifications, and it doesn’t seem to work for variable products. If I add a variable product to my favorites list, even if I then set every variable to “on sale”, no email is sent. Perhaps I’m missing how to make this part work? or maybe it only works with simple products?
Also, I was able to send a test email for the Restock notification, but the text in the email reads:
You have been waiting patiently and now it is finally hereâ€¦
Not sure where the “â€¦” is coming from (I haven’t edited your template file)
I am glad to hear you have been enjoying the plugin thus far! Unfortunately, there is not much support for variable products with this plugin. It is in the works, but at the moment it only works at the product level. Did you try changing the primary Price field, not the ones in the variation settings?
Unfortunately I do not know why the exclamation mark is not going through well. I cannot replicate the problem on my own server, but I believe the exclamation mark is inside the localization functions. Do you have a translation plugin enabled, like WPML or Polylang?
Thanks for the reply. About the exclamation point, I don’t have a translation plugin or anything like that, but I am using gmail through the wp smtp plugin, so perhaps that’s where the error comes in?
About the variable product stuff, looks like it won’t work for variable products (even with primary price field; also, we may need different prices for each variable anyway so that wouldn’t work for us). But we’re really happy your plugin works with variable products for the restock-notifications! That’s the main thing we needed. Hopefully the favorites, etc. can be made to work the same in a future update. Thanks again for an excellent plugin!
It’s possible if there is some encoding happening during that process. I tried to research it but found nothing specific with that plugin. If you are using the one by WPForms I can’t imagine that would have any issues. It’s very widely used.
I did find many posts about migrating databases and having that happen. Each time it was just about the encoding functions not properly encoding/decoding the special punctuation. You can always try overriding the template file and either rewrite the exclamation mark (in case it happened during uploading), or remove it. I probably should have asked before, but did you click the button to preview the template? This would at least tell you if it was converted during uploading of the plugin.
When I preview the template, this is what I see for that part of the email.
<p><strong><?php _e('Good News', 'be-product-alerts'); ?>!</strong></p>
<p><?php _e( 'You have been waiting patiently and now it is finally here', 'be-product-alerts' ); ?>...</p>
I’m not very good with php, so not quite sure how I should edit it if I copy the template to my child theme.
That’s really unusual, I’m afraid I do not know. You can try disabling the SMTP plugin temporarily to see if your server’s mail system handles it any differently. The exclamation mark is not inside the translation function (this was a recent change so I wanted to be sure).
I am not sure what else would be altering it unless you have another plugin that manages email text before it is set out. The emails for this plugin go through the email class in WooCommerce, so the same output filters would apply.
I’m an antique dealer, everything I stock is unique, it will never be in stock again. I want to let people know when a new item is added to a category. – is that a feature?
I’m afraid not yet. It will be coming in the next update, but it is still in progress and not expected to be released for a few more weeks.
Just wondering how your getting on with the new update. Is it a bit behind schedule
Unfortunately yes. We had to switch gears to focus on GDPR compliance for this and another plugin. An update is going to be released soon to provide this feature and it may or may not have this new alert email. It was only about half way through development when it was paused so it will depend on time.
For the variable products, when customer click on the item link of the email, the product variations is not selected.
I’m afraid I cannot replicate this issue on my own server. Have you tried the link while temporarily using a different theme? It’s possible something in your theme is overriding this. Please ensure the URL is correct, it should have the variation within the URL like this: http://www.yourwebsite.com/product/bundle-product-test/?attribute_ticket-type=General
If the URL is formatted correctly, then this plugin is working okay. Selecting the appropriate variations is then handled by WooCommerce and sometimes your theme if they have overwritten certain template files.
Is the plugin gdpr compliant?
Unfortunately not 100% but an update is coming soon.
1. Any chance to make this gdpr compatible. (add a tick somewhere and let the customer know why we are asking for email)
2. Combine with yith wishlist for ex: customers add a product to his wishlist and maybe the price of that product is going on sale—> he receive an email with stoc and price alert
3. What is the impact on server performance ?
GDPR compliance is in the works but unfortunately it is much more than adding a checkbox to the subscription forms so it’s taking quite a bit more time to complete than desired.
Compatibility with other wishlist plugins has been greatly considered, but it’s just not top of the list at the moment, primarily due to GDPR.
I’ve tried to keep the plugin as lean as possible but it’s affect will depend on how many people have subscribed. The primary triggers are when products are saved, but only if it triggers an alert. Another alert can be triggered when a customer checkouts. Otherwise it’s very minimal.
If you have any further questions, please let me know!
Any eta? I found that wishlist integration very useful. So the customers can get email based on their choices.
I’m afraid I don’t have a solid eta right now. But the integration shouldn’t be too difficult in the future. The sale and low stock alerts already work this way, just with this plugin’s favorites. So it’s just about telling the plugin to look at other systems, too.
Hmm the thing is that i am using a theme that uses yith wishlist with counter.
Can you help me integrate your wishlist with theme?
I’m afraid I don’t personally have the time to do so. It will be available in the future if you’d like to check back, or you can hire a developer to bridge the two, but I have not been taking customization projects lately due to necessary plugin updates in progress.
