WP Coupons translation files are located in the wp-coupons/languages directory. In the languages folder, you’ll find any existing translation files along with our wp_coupons.pot translation template file, which you can use as a template for your translation. We suggest using Poedit to help create your translation files.
Please submit both .po and .mo translation files once you have done the translation work from the provided template and name them in the following format.
If you are interested in helping with the translation, please contact us first.
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).
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.
You haven’t activated the plugin yet. Follow our tutorial on how to install WP Coupons and activate it using your license key.
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.
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.
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)
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:
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.
We firmly believe in and stand behind our plugin 100%, but we understand that it cannot work perfectly for everyone all of the time. If you are unhappy with your purchase, or you have an issue that we are unable to resolve that makes the system unusable, we will be happy to consider offering a refund.
Refunds will be offered at our sole discretion and must meet all of the following conditions:
You are within the first 30 days of the purchase of the plugin. After 30 days no refunds can be processed.
Your issue(s) comes from not being able to install the plugin properly or get the plugin to perform its basic functions.
You have attempted to resolve your issue(s) with our support team.
Issues caused by 3rd party plugins, themes or other software will not provide grounds for a refund.
Refunds do not apply to product upgrades or annual renewals.
Please note that by purchasing the plugin, you agree to the terms of the refund policy. To submit a refund request, please contact us.
