Sad that the installation files are not there anymore
Unfortunately, neither functions.php nor those helpful shortcodes are available anymore from the coder's website...
We use this for almost all of our Magneto clients. Great plugin and works very well!
I wouldn't hesitate to use anything from James Kemp. I've had a few issues in the past and he's is always quick to help me fix anything. That being said it's really straight forward to use. As long as you actually read the instructions you'll be fine.
But... I wish it was a bit more robust in attempting to find the mage.php file. When running on my local machine I have one path and when deploying to the stage server (test server) the path is a little different. Either it should allow relative paths from the web root (ideal) and also should try a couple of different paths before giving up.
Currently, each time I deploy and copy database from local to stage server I need to go in and update this path which is a bit of a drag. Otherwise, very useful! :)
Important: you MUST follow the installation instructions here or you're gonna have a bad time. The forum looks inundated with people who missed a step.
I use this plugin combined with the author's 'MWI Shortcodes & Widgets', and it works great for incorporating products pretty much anywhere on a blog. Well worth the price. I've seen no other good options for this functionality.
10/10 would recommend.
hi there. plug-in is working fine. I'm not sure why the cart items are not showing up in the cart. Is there no such a feature in the plug-in or do i miss something
I could connect to Mage.php but my codes in sidebar text widget doesn´t show anything.
In view-source:http://www.penelopeacessorios.com.br/blogdapenelope/ you can find the code under "Produtos da Loja" at sidebar.
$staticblock = get_static_block('top.search');
<?php the_static_block('penelope'); ?>
Static Block ´penelope´works fine in Magento homepage http://www.penelopeacessorios.com.br/blogdapenelope/ to show a menu at left sidebar.
Can you help ? My email is email@example.com
Very useful extension
there were error in addon files. james contacted me through skype and teamviewer. together we found the problem. it was a simple code error in the addon files. and i had to put a new price.phtml into my magento's theme folder. now it works like a charm!
The Magento / WordPress integration works perfectly. Where I needed support, I got it immediately and I was up and running in no time. Highly recommend these components. See the end-result at our site twinsparkracing.com - blog and shop running side-by-side.
