You can install and activate the WP Coupons plugin on your local development or staging environment without impacting your activation count. In order for this to work, your environment needs to be running on the following:
We have found that some customers simply can’t pay with their PayPal balance, even though they have plenty of money in their PayPal accounts. Unfortunately, this is an issue with PayPal and therefore we have no control over this.
Typically, PayPal doesn’t allow recurring payments unless you have a credit card or bank account linked to it. It doesn’t matter how much money you have in your PayPal balance.
Troubleshooting this with PayPal can be a little frustrating, as we’ve found that this applies to some people and not others. Sometimes this is due to your physical location/region or the PayPal account needing extra verification.
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.
