Coupon Creator

Create coupons to display on your site by using a shortcode.

How big of an image is the coupon?

There are two sizes, but the image uploaded should be 400 pixels by 200 pixels to display correctly.

What if I have support questions?

Please use the Coupon Creator Support Forum on WordPress.

How do I customize the coupon (make bigger, change layout, etc...)?

There is no direct way to customize the look of the coupon in the WordPress dashboard. All customizations would involve modifying the css, the shortcode file, and the single template file. If you are interested in a custom design please contact Brian about a price.

Can I have both an image and text in the coupon?

You can add html coding to the discount box, but there is no visual editor to do it.

My coupon was working and now it does not display, how can I fix it?

Please check if the expiration date has passed and whether or not the ignore expiration is checked. If it is checked or the date is still in the future, please post on the Support Forum in WordPress about the issue and include a link to the page so I can check for errors.

How do I fix 404 Errors on the Print View of the Coupons?

The cause of the conflict can be hosting, plugin, or theme related. Try first to resave your permalinks and then check the Print View. If that does not work, try disabling plugins and/or changing the themes and check again. If none of that works, it could be a conflict with the hosting setup.

Where does the shortcode go?

Insert the shortcode in the content editor of a post, page, or custom post type.

How can I display coupons using the shortcode in a sidebar text widget?

Add this coding to your theme's function.php:

add_filter('widget_text', 'do_shortcode');

How can I prevent coupons from appearing in a site search?

By default the coupons are excluded from search. However, if you add coding to show custom post types in the search, you would have to exclude the custom post type, cctor_coupon.

How can I remove the Click to Open in Print View or Click to Print Text?

You either modify the shortcode and the template file or use CSS to hide the display of either.

Does the Coupon Creator have custom capabilities for WordPress users?

No, there are no custom capabilities for users. The plugin is designed to work on single sites and not directory sites.

Can I change cctor_coupon in the print view permalink?

With version 1.70 you can change the slug of the permalink in the settings section of the plugin. Found under the Coupon Creator Heading.

The Coupon Inserter, Image Uploader, the Expiration Date Picker, or the Color Pickers are not working, what is wrong?

Most likely this is a JavaScript error and could be caused by another plugin or your theme. Please check the Developer Console for your browser and see if there is an error. If you post the error on the support forum I maybe able to help. Otherwise try disabling plugins and changing themes to try and find the sources as well.
