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!

Where to add custom code?

You should place custom PHP in functions.php and custom CSS in style.css of your child theme: where to place WooCommerce customization?

This code still works, unless you report otherwise. To exclude conflicts, temporarily switch to the Storefront theme, disable all plugins except WooCommerce, and test the snippet again: WooCommerce troubleshooting 101

  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 ๐Ÿ™‚

  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?
