PRE-SALES QUESTION: You write in your description “After creating an account on the shop’s website user will be able to “like” an item with a single click of the “favourite” BUTTON. This BUTTON appear on the shop archive for each product and the single product page.” – QUESTION 1: Why I cant see the button function on your live preview? It shows nothing. QUESTION 2: Can i make it also appear to non-logged in users and prompt them after clicking the button to login/register ?

No problem, I would be happy to help answer any questions you have.

Visitors have access to the plugin’s settings in the dashboard, so some may alter it in a way that would seem different. At the moment the ‘Favorites’ feature is enabled, but it seems someone changed the text to ‘Receive sale alert’. (It’s also currently setup for registered users only, as described in my answer to your next question below.)

You can absolutely have the button appear to guests. By default it will appear to both guests and registered users, but at the moment the ‘Hide favorites link for guests’ option is enabled. This means the button is hidden for guests, but you can uncheck the box to enable it again.

If you have any further questions, please let me know! And feel free to click the ‘Plugin Settings’ link in the demo site’s menu. This will bring you to the plugin’s settings where you can try out the features you are looking for.

I opened the ticket #2945 on March 1, 2019 6:38 pm and no response yet! What the heck?

I apologize for the delay. It looks like you have a minor warning in your error log which has been added to the development list to address in the next update. If you would like, I can leave instructions in your ticket on how to make it go away. Generally small notices like this are released alongside the next update. It’s simply a server side message shown (instead of a more user friendly message) to tell the customer they have not subscribed to any product alerts when they try to view the list of subscriptions.

Any update for this plugin?

I have a minor bug fix update being released shortly, but a feature update is still in the works, much further out.

demo no work

Can you please provide further information? I do not see any issues, however please note that dashboard access is provided to visitors. Some features may be turned off or just not visible based on product settings. You can login and change settings as necessary to test based on your needs.

Hi, I would like to know if you use WP translation function in the source code to allow buyers to localize your plugin into their languages with Loco Translate plugin or similar?

It should, but I can look into it as a potential bug with a recent WooCommerce update. For this we can definitely get working as it’s part of the core, I just cannot promise about other third party plugins as that is a whole other ball field and would take more time.

Yeah, thank you. Of course we do not care about any other third-party plugins – they should do their work through the standard way, to get know entire system and other plugins about their work (i.e. core triggers, filters, actions, so on).

I apologize for the delay. In trying to make something like this possible the update blossomed into much more and took additional time to put together. While we have not tested it with any third party inventory plugins, it’s more possible now that we have moved away from relying on the product edit form. However, because internal components are now used, we had to switch to a model that supported variable IDs for all alerts, not just the restocking ones.

None the less, the restocking alerts should be working appropriately now. We did find an issue with sending the emails, so I would encourage you to try the upgrade now and make sure that resolves the same problem for you.

Please let me know how it works out for you!
