    Click on the text editor to make sure there isn’t any extra text with the post. Other than that, double-check that the plugin has been activated.

    I have entered {{wp-favorite-post}} to a post and published it, however list is not showing. Just the text string?

    Hi Rashawn,
    Do you mean that you have favorited a post and it isn’t appearing on the favorite post page you created? Is the page showing the standard info about saving posts to indicate that the plugin is setup properly?? Can you please send me a link to your Favorite Post Page.
    Thanks – Jo

    If you run a retail website, this plugin is fantastic. Use a heart symbol with ‘Add to Wishlist’ wording. Visitors can easily save things they want to buy and can find them again easily at a later date. This is becoming really common fashion and gift sites which means most women already know how to use the technology. To show a heart symbol only…select “no image” and add html in the “Text for add link” option and do the same for the remove link.

    Hmm it appears like your website ate my first comment
    (it was extremely long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I had written and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog. I too am an aspiring blog blogger but I’m still new to the whole thing. Do you have any points for inexperienced blog writers? I’d genuinely appreciate it.
