I was under the impression that favorites could be save by non-logged in users. But the page I have the shortcode for favorites list is requiring login. Do people have to be logged in with a user account for this plugin to work? Thanks

Synchronized style updates with multiple shortcodes on one page



Replies: 0


Thanks for your great plugin.

Is there a way to get the styling of the icon to update synchronously when you have the shortcode inserted more than once on a given page?

On the example URL above, I have the favourites shortcode in three locations. If I save the content by clicking on the “save” heart, the other save hearts stay outlined instead of changing to solid.

Is there a way to get all three hearts to update to be solid, no matter which “save” heart someone clicks?

Error on delete all or delete last



Replies: 1

Hi again,

Still playing with your fantastic plug-in. I found a beta version on Gitehub and mixed some codes. It seems almost all functions work now. Although 2 things are still unclear. I hope you can help me.

  1. When I select 4 items to the list, they all show up, perfect! After that I delete them, 1 each time. Now, the last one or the button “delete all” gives me an error. See attached screenshot.
  2. On the page where I can select the posts i want to add to the list, the hearts will not be coloured if I go back to that page after surfing. So, you cannot see which items are already selected unless you visit the list with the selection.

Screenshot: https://lebonbusiness.fr/wp-content/uploads/2023/01/error.png

I am not a great programmer so if you have a solution, keep it simple. I always say, “talk to me as if I where 5 years old”. (lol)

Thanks again and a Happy New Year!

Add text if heart not active



Replies: 1

Is there an if statement I can use to test whether the favorite (heart) is or is not active/already clicked? I want to add text next to the button/heart if it has not been clicked and no text if it has already been chosen/clicked.
