Wishlist Button Settings Explained

In this article, we shall try to explain the various options available on the Wishlist Button Settings of Smart Wishlist found in Shopify Admin.

1. Button Type:

There are 3 types of Buttons available for displaying wishlist button on individual Product Pages.

Type 1: Icon Only
Type 2: Icon + Label
Type 3: Icon + Label + Background

The Type 1 button is actually an Icon (Heart Outline by default). It changes to a different icon (Filled Heart by default) when the item gets added to the Wishlist.

The Type 2 Button displays an Icon followed by a Label. The icon is same as in Type 1 above. The Label can be a text (default is Add to Wishlist ), which can change to another text (default is Remove from Wishlist).

The Type 3 Button consists of an Icon, a label and a definite background color. It resembles the look and feel of the Add to Cart button.

NOTE: Depending on the Button Type you choose, the options available on the Settings Page vary.

NOTE: For items on all other pages viz. Collection, Search Results and Cart Pages, only Type 1 Wishlist button is available.

2. Button Icon

An Icon is integral part of Wishlist buttons. You need to specify two icons for a wishlist button.

1. Wishlist Icon (when the item is not added to wishlist)
2. Wishlist icon (when the item has been added to wishlist)

By default, Icon #1 is Heart Outline and Icon #2 is Filled Heart. However both icons can also be same. Using our GUI, You can choose between 15 icons for Icon #1 and Icon #2 each.

Custom Icons

You can also use any custom icons for Wishlist. This can be font awesome icons, glyphicons or any custom defined icon present in your theme. For this, please select the option Use a custom icon for Wishlist button. This will display 2 new input boxes:

1. Icon class name (when the item is not added to Wishlist)

This is the icon displayed when item has not been added to Wishlist. You need to specify the Icon Class here. To use fontawesome, enter the class name in the format fa fa-icon for e.g. fa fa-circle-o. If you use a theme defined icon, please enter the CSS class name of your custom icon.

2. Icon class name (when the item has been added to Wishlist)

This is the icon displayed when item has been added to Wishlist. Everything else remains the same as above.

NOTE: Selecting this option would override the icons specified using the GUI above. Therefore, if you want to revert to the 15 icons available with GUI, you need to unselect it.
