The Want App

Create a 'Want' button that drives traffic and sales by automagically linking to a social wishlist on the Facebook Timeline.

Setting up The Want App on your site is super simple.

  1. Upload the thewantapp.php file to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the 'Plugins' menu in WordPress
  3. Wherever you want the button to appear, place the following shortcode structure into the post or page content, or into your template code: [thewantapp url="<item url>" image="<image url>" title="<item title>"]
  4. Add an optional theme parameter (theme="<theme>") to change the look of the button.
  5. Replace the <...> parts with your specific data, following these guidelines:
  • The url parameter refers to the full, public internet location (starting with http://) for the page of whatever the user will 'Want.' It can be the same page or an external page.

  • The image parameter refers to the full, public internet location (starting with http://) for the image of whatever the user will 'Want.' Recommended minimum dimensions for the image are 100x100.

  • The title parameter refers to the name of whatever the user will 'Want.'

  • The theme parameter changes how the button looks. This field can be left out and default to 'light'. Possible values are light, dark, light-box, and dark-box. Dimensions of the light and dark themes are 90x20, while light-box and dark-box are 51x62.

Note: you do not need to url-encode any of the parameters. The plugin handles that for you.
