How to Enable and Use the Tag Sub-Navigation Menu

Many of you have a lot of coupons and have requested the ability to add a sub-navigation menu which would allow for additional filtering. This has been added to the WP Coupons plugin as of version 1.4.0. Follow the instructions below on how to enable and use the tag sub-navigation menu.

Enable the Tag Sub-Navigation Menu

To enable the sub-navigation menu, click into the WP Coupons settings. Scroll down and select the option “Enable Tag Subnav.”

Add Tags to Your Coupons

You can then click into each of your coupons and add a tag to it, or multiple tags.

You can also browse or add tags from the “Tags” section in the WP Coupons plugin.

This will then make a sub-navigation menu appear for plugins that have tags associated with them. Visitors can then filter down further into your coupons based on the tags (See it in action).

How to Load style.css in the Footer

While loading CSS in your header is generally best practice to avoid any flashes of unstyled elements, some of you may prefer to load the CSS of WP Coupons in the footer.

https://wpcoupons.io/wp-content/plugins/wp-coupons/css/style.css

To do this, simply add the following code to your functions.php file or add it in a free plugin like Code Snippets.

An error occurred while updating. Download failed. Unauthorized

When you try to update the WP Coupons plugin you might get the following error:

An error occurred while updating wpcoupons: Download failed. Unauthorized.

There are a couple reasons why this might be happening.

  1. You haven’t activated the plugin yet. Follow our tutorial on how to install WP Coupons and activate it using your license key.
  2. If your license key is already activated, but you’re getting an “Unauthorized” message, you most likely need to remove your license key and save – then re-add it and save. This happens when your URL has changed since your license key was activated or perhaps it was being used on a staging site/dev site.
  3. Your license has expired and will need to be renewed. All of our licenses include 1 year of updates & support.

If none of the above options work, you can also update the plugin manually via SFTP. You can grab the latest version (.zip) from your WP Coupons’ account.

How to Enable Click to Reveal Coupons

Due to popular demand, we now have a “click to reveal coupons” option. This works just like it does on popular coupon sites like RetailMeNot. To enable this feature, simply click into the WP Coupons options and enable “Click to Reveal.”

There are two options for the behavior:

  • New tab + Popup (this behavior is similar to RetailMeNot)
  • Popup Only

You can also change the default text that is displayed by adding your own in the Click to Reveal Text option.

When enabled it will show a “Click to Reveal” on the following four locations:

Enable click to reveal

And below is an example of what the popup looks like. A visitor can click “Copy” to copy the code to their clipboard. If you have the new tab option enabled, it also opens up the location in a new tab.
