WP E-Commerce Dashboard

Installation:
You Must already have the following plugins installed:

WP e-Commerce
Upload the plugin to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
Head to your dashboard, and turn off any widgets not required
Drag n’ drop widgets where you want them

faq:
Can I remove the {XXXXXX} report from my dashboard?

Yes. Just click on “Screen Options” on your dashboard, and unselect the report.

The E-commerce Product Sales module only displays 5 item – where are the rest?

Most of the modules only show 5 results by default to avoid clogging up the dashboard. If you want to change it there’s a WordPress filter that allows you to change it to whatever you want. So, just add something like this to your WordPress theme’s functions.php file:

function my-adjustment-to-product-sales($current_limit) {
return 999;
}
add_filter(‘ses_wpscd_product_sales_limit’,’my-adjustment-to-product-sales’);

There are similar filters for other modules, e.g.

“Orders to ship”: ses_wpscd_orders_to_ship_limit
“Recent Orders”: ses_wpscd_recent_orders_limit
“Recent Product Rating”: ses_wpscd_recent_product_ratings_limit

Events Manager Extended

Installation:
Always take a backup of your db before doing the upgrade, just in case …
1. Upload the events-manager-extended folder to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
3. Add events list or calendars following the instructions in the Usage section.

faq:
I enabled the Google Maps integration, but instead of the map there is a green background. What should I do?

I call that “the green screen of death”, but it’s quite easy to fix your issue. If you see that green background, your theme has a little problem that should be fixed. Open the header.php page of your theme; if your theme hasn’t any header.php page, just open the index.php page and/or any page containing the <head> section of the html code. Make sure that the page contains a line like this:

<?php wp_head(); ?>

If your page(s) doesn’t contain such line, add it just before the line containing </head>. Now everything should work allright.
For curiosity’s sake, <?php wp_head(); ?> is an action hook, that is a function call allowing plugins to insert their stuff in WordPress pages; if you’re a theme maker, you should make sure to include <?php wp_head(); ?> and all the necessary hooks in your theme.

How do I resize the single events map? Or change the font color or any style of the balloon?

Create a file called ‘myown.css’ in the plugin directory and put in there eg.:

.eme-location-map {
width: 600px;
height: 400px;
}
.eme-location-balloon {
color: #FF7146;
}

You can start from events_manager.css as a base and just change the parts you want.
Warning: when wordpress updates a plugin automatically, it removes the plugin directory completely. So be sure to have a backup of myown.css somewhere to put back in place afterwards.

For the multiple locations map, see the shortcode [locations_map] with its possible parameters on the documentation site.

Can I customise the event page?

Sure, you can do that by editing the page and changing its template. For heavy customisation, you can use the some of the plugin’s own conditional tags, described in the Template Tags section.

How does Events Manager Extended work?

When installed, Events Manager Extended creates a special “Events” page. This page is used for the dynamic content of the events. All the events link actually link to this page, which gets rendered differently for each event.

Are events posts?

Events aren’t posts. They are stored in a different table and have no relationship whatsoever with posts.

Why aren’t events posts?

I decided to treat events as a separate class because my priority was the usability of the user interface in the administration; I wanted my users to have a simple, straightforward way of inserting the events, without confusing them with posts. I wanted to make my own simple event form.
If you need to treat events like posts, you should use one of the other excellent events plugin.

Is Events Manager Extended available in my language?

At this stage, Events Manager Extended is only available in English and Italian. Yet, the plugin is fully localisable; I will welcome any translator willing to add to this package a translation of Events Manager Extended into his mother tongue.

Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
To start adding tags go to the admin section of any group. You’ll see the Group Tags field at the bottom.

optionally edit settings in the plugin file bp-group-tags.php to change how the tag cloud displays. You can turn off the tags clouds at the top of the groups directory, you can also alter the way the tag clouds display. Note that at present, these settings will get over-written when the plugin is updated. (this will change soon.)

faq:
How can I get feature XYZ implemented?

Send a paypal donation to deryk@bluemandala.com and I’ll happily do it. If I don’t do it, I’ll refund the donation. I’m an honest guy. Small donations also ensure continued plugin development.

Get Custom Field Values

Installation:

Unzip get-custom.zip inside the /wp-content/plugins/ directory, or upload get-custom.php to /wp-content/plugins/
(optional) Add filters for ‘the_meta’ to filter custom field data (see the end of the plugin file for commented out samples you may wish to include). And/or add per-meta filters by hooking ‘the_meta_$field’
Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ admin menu in WordPress
Give post(s) a custom field with a value.
(optional) Go to the Appearance -> Widgets admin page to create one or more ‘Get Custom Field’ sidebar widgets for your widget-enabled theme.
(optional) Use one of the six template functions provided by this plugin to retrieve the contents of custom fields. You must ‘echo’ the result if you wish to display the value on your site.

faq:
I added the template tag to my template and the post has the custom field I’m asking for but I don’t see anything about it on the page; what gives?

Did you echo the return value of the function, e.g. <?php echo c2c_get_custom(‘mood’, ‘My mood: ‘); ?>

Can I achieve all the functionality allowed by the six template functions using the widget?

Except for c2c_get_custom() (which is only available inside “the loop”), yes, by carefully setting the appropriate settings for the widget.

How do I configure the widget to match up with the template functions?

c2c_get_custom() : not achievable via the widget
c2c_get_current_custom() : set the “Post ID” field to 0, leave “Pick random value?” unchecked, and set other values as desired.
c2c_get_post_custom() : set the “Post ID” field to the ID of the post you want to reference and set other values as desired.
c2c_get_random_custom() : leave “Post ID” blank, check “Pick random value?”, and set other values as desired.
c2c_get_random_post_custom() : set the “Post ID” field to the ID of the post you want to reference, check “Pick random value?”, and set other values as desired.
c2c_get_recent_custom() : leave “Post ID” blank, leave “Pick random value?” unchecked, and set other values as desired.

I don’t plan on using the shortcode builder when writing or editing a post or page, so how do I get rid of it?

When on the write or edit admin pages for a page or post, find the “Screen Options” link near the upper right-hand corner of the page. Clicking it slides down a panel of options. In the “Show on screen” section, uncheck the checkbox labeled “Get Custom Field Values – Shortcode”. This must be done separately for posts and for pages if you want the shortcode builder disabled for both sections.
