WooCommerce: Display YITH Wishlist Buttons @ Shop Page

This week’s snippet is about one of the most popular WooCommerce plugins on the WordPress repository: YITH WooCommerce Wishlist developed by YITHEMES.

With over 500,000+ active installations, you can probably understand why this is extremely on demand. Having a “wishlist” on your WooCommerce website is a great idea: customers can save their desired products and get back later to complete the purchase.

One of the most requested customizations of such plugin is to display the wishlist buttons on the shop (also called product archive or product loop) pages, under each product’s add to cart button. And the fix is extremely simple!

function bbloomer_display_yith_wishlist_loop() {
echo do_shortcode( "[yith_wcwl_add_to_wishlist]" );

Where to add custom code?

You should place PHP snippets at the bottom of your child theme functions.php file and CSS at the bottom of its style.css file. Make sure you know what you are doing when editing such files - if you need more guidance, please take a look at my guide "Should I Add Custom Code Via WP Editor, FTP or Code Snippets?" and my video tutorial "Where to Place WooCommerce Customization?"

Does this snippet (still) work?

Please let me know in the comments if everything went as expected. I would be happy to revise the snippet if you report otherwise (please provide screenshots). I have tested this code with Storefront theme, the WooCommerce version listed above and a WordPress-friendly hosting.

  1. I am using the code snippet to display wishlist button or symbol on shop page but it does not work for my site.

    1. Please ask YITH and then get back here to post their solution, maybe they changed something in their plugin code?

    1. Hey Omrei, thanks so much for your comment! Try asking their support team, they should be able to help 🙂

  3. Hi, do you have the hook for php to get the products which are inside the wishlist so that I can display them on another page?
    Thank you!

    1. Hi Karen, thanks for your comment. No, sorry, try ask YITH

  4. I tried implementing the code on my site, instead of a button, I’m getting the following code underneath the add to cart button > “[yith_wcwl_add_to_wishlist]”

    What did I do wrong?

    1. Hey Ahmed! Did you forget the “do_shortcode” part maybe?

  5. Hmm. This snippet doesn’t seem to work for me. I expected that I would see the Add to Wishlist button below each item on the following archives pages. What am I missing?

    1. Hey Rob, thanks so much for your comment! I see the buttons on those pages – was it just a cache problem then?
