Configuration

Settings Page

The plugin settings can be found in the Settings page under the NM Gift Registry admin menu.

Most of the settings are self explanatory and have tooltips explaining how they work but there are few that require additional explanation and these are mentioned below. Settings which require much more explanation would have their own articles.

General tab

Wishlist type title

This setting describes how the wishlist module is titled. If you are using the plugin as a gift registry you can select “Gift Registry”. If you are using the plugin as a wishlist you can select “Wishlist”. Other available titles are “Gift List” and “List”.

Filter: To use your own custom title, two filters are available: nmgr_type_titles and nmgr_type_title.

Allow users to have multiple wishlists (Full Version)

This setting allows each user to have more than one wishlist. It can be enabled at any time. However if it is disabled after users have created multiple wishlists, all their wishlists except the most recent one would be deleted and the recent one would become their sole wishlist.

Modules tab

Items table

Quantity Column

The quantity column on the wishlist items table, if enabled, shows the quantity of each item added to the wishlist. But it does much more under the hood. Because it reflects the quantity of items desired by the wishlist owner, it is used to regulate whether the item can be added to the cart (an item would be added to the cart only if the quantity being added does not exceed the quantity desired in the wishlist, also taking into account the quantity already in the cart). It is also used to determine if an item is fulfilled (if all quantities of the item in the wishlist have been purchased) and if the wishlist is fulfilled (if all quantities of all items in the wishlist have been purchased).

If the quantity column is therefore disabled, all these features would not work. The quantity of a wishlist item added to the cart, for example, would then only be regulated by the stock quantity of the item in the store, and the plugin would not be able to determine whether the wishlist or items in it have been fulfilled. This would also prevent the plugin from sending emails (full version only) associated with the wishlist being fulfilled.

The quantity column can be disabled if all you need is a simple wishlist without the extra features associated with the column.

Purchased Quantity Column

The purchased quantity column on the wishlist items table, if enabled, shows the quantity of each item that has been purchased for the wishlist. For this reason it is used, along with the quantity column, to determine whether the item or wishlist is fulfilled. It is also used to determine if items already bought for the wishlist have been refunded and to send refund email notification if applicable.

This column can be disabled if you do not want any of these features.
