FAQ

Translation issue with the version 1.0.6

In order to import correctly the plugin strings in the new system, we had to change the text domain form ‘ywcca’ to ‘yith-woocommerce-category-accordion’. Once the plugin will be imported in the translate.wordpress.org system, the translations of other languages will be downloaded directly from WordPress, without using any .po and .mo files. Moreover, users will be able to participate in a more direct way to plugin translations, suggesting texts in their languages in the dedicated tab on translate.wordpress.org. During this transition step, .po and .mo files will be used as always, but in order to be recognized by WordPress, they will need to have a new nomenclature, renaming them in: yith-woocommerce-category-accordion-.po yith-woocommerce-category-accordion-.mo. For example, if your language files were named ywcca-en_GB.po and ywcca-en_GB.mo, you will just have to rename them respectively as yith-woocommerce-category-accordion-en_GB.po and yith-woocommerce-category-accordion-en_GB.mo.

Is the plugin compatible with all WordPress themes?

Compatibility with all themes is impossible, because they are too many, but generally if themes are developed according to WordPress and WooCommerce guidelines, YITH plugins are compatible with them.
Yet, we can grant compatibility with themes developed by YIThemes, because they are constantly updated and tested with our plugins. Sometimes, especially when new versions are released, it might only require some time for them to be all updated, but you can be sure that they will be tested and will be working in a few days.

How can I get support if my WooCommerce plugin is not working?

If you have problems with our plugins or something is not working as it should, first follow this preliminary steps:

  • Test the plugin with a WordPress default theme, to be sure that the error is not caused by the theme you are currently using.
  • Deactivate all plugins you are using and check if the problem is still occurring.
  • Ensure that you plugin version, your theme version and your WordPress and WooCommerce version (if required) are updated and that the problem you are experiencing has not already been solved in a later plugin update.

If none of the previous listed actions helps you solve the problem, then, submit a ticket in the forum and describe your problem accurately, specify WordPress and WooCommerce versions you are using and any other information that might help us solve your problem as quickly as possible. Thanks!

Configuration

YITH WooCommerce Category Accordion will add a new submenu called “Category Accordion” in “YIT Plugins” menu. From there, you can configure all plugin settings.
You will be able to add your accordion(s) in your sidebar thanks to a useful widget.

Reviews

I would have given it a NEGATIVE NOTE FOR FALSE REPRESENTATION!!!!

This is NOT a plugin… they just SHOVED this in the freebies to THROW an upgrade page in your face when you want to use the settings! How do we file an OFFICIAL COMPLAINT to WP to KILL this STUPID Booby trap???? How do we TAKE OFF reputation of this company who tries to FORCE us into buying at an OUTRAGEOUS PRICE???? KILL THIS FALSE PLUGIN!!!!

Forced to buy or delete

There is no possibility to change the sorting. Standard order alphabetically this is stupid. But it is necessary by id. Or buy preimum or delete this plugin....

No Settings, Behind a paywall!

I thought the plugin would be perfect. Checked out the settings to find a big paywall banner asking me to pay to use the settings. I am not paying 40 euros to show a list of categories.

Bug: Nested lists also have minus sign

Plugin is good. working fine but their is a bug and that is when you click + sign on an item that have nested list which again have another nested list so all positive sign below become minus while I think they should remain positive. Other then that functionality is good they are working but just consider this bug. its not looking good
