How to Change WP Coupons Display Options

Change the primary display settings for your coupons.

Enable Coupon Archive Template

If checked, this will auto generate a coupon archive using the archive slug below. Disable this if you would rather use the [wp_coupons] shortcode to print the coupon archive inside of a page. This can be useful if your theme has some conflicts with our archive template.

Enable Single Coupon Template

If checked, single coupon posts will display using our custom template. Disable this if you would rather use your theme’s default post template to display single coupon posts. This can be useful if your theme has some conflicts with our custom single post template.

Single Coupon Template

  • Post Template
  • Page Template

If the previous option is unchecked, this will allow you to choose which default template is used for single coupon posts. Default: Post Template

Single Coupon Panel Position

  • Right
  • Left
  • Top

This will change the position of the coupon panel on the single post template. Default: Right

Display Single Template Image

If checked, the featured image will be displayed on the coupon panel in your Single Coupon Posts. This option is only relevant when our Enable Single Coupon Template option is turned off. It is helpful for those who have themes that do not display featured images on their page and post templates. Default: Unchecked

Hide Single Template Title

If checked, this will prevent the post title from printing above the content area on your Single Coupon Posts. This option is only relevant when our Enable Single Coupon Template option is turned on. Default: Unchecked

This option can be helpful if you are not wanting to display any additional content on your individual coupon posts and put the sole focus on the banner displayed at the top.

Hide Breadcrumbs

This will disable the breadcrumbs archive link that displays above the content on the Single Coupon Posts. Default: Unchecked

Archive URL

This will change the slug for the coupon archive URL as well as the single coupon URLs. Default: http://example.com/coupons/

This will change the text for the first navigation element on the coupon archive template and shortcode. Default: All Coupons

This will change the style and placement of your coupon archive navigation.

We have 3 different navigation style options:

  • Default: This will print out all primary nav elements horizontally above your coupon panels.
  • Vertical: This will print out all primary nav elements vertically to the left of your coupon panels.
  • Dropdown: This will store all primary nav elements in a dropdown that will appear above your coupon panels. We use a small bit of inline javascript to automatically redirect the user after an element is selected.

Enable Tag Subnav

If checked, this will enable tags to be used as sub-navigation for the Coupon Archive and Archive Shortcode. You may need to refresh your permalink settings after enabling this option. Default: Unchecked

Archive Layout

This will change the layout of the main coupon archive as well as the [wp_coupons] shortcode. There are currently four different types of archive layouts.

3 Columns (Default)

The default layout is a 3 column layout.

List View

The list view uses the same size thumbnails, it’s just in a vertical list instead.

No Code Needed Text

Click to Reveal

Coupon Description Height

This will change the height of the coupon description container on your coupon panels. Default: 90px

Display Expiration Dates

If checked, expiration dates will be displayed on coupon panels across all views if they are set. Default: Unchecked

If checked, a row of related coupons will be displayed below your post content. See below to manage which locations you would like related coupons to show up. Default: Unchecked

Please select the post types you would like your related coupons to show up on. Default: Coupons

This will change the text that is displayed above your related coupons. Default: Related Coupons

This will cause the related coupons section to print out on the specified hook instead of directly after the_content.

When using the previous option to print related coupons on a custom hook, this will set the priority that the function prints in relation to others using the same hook.

Page Width (px)

This will change the width of the content area for the coupon archive and single coupon posts. Default: 1200px

Page Padding (px)

This will change the responsive padding of the content area. Default: 20px

This will change the number of posts per page displayed in the main Coupon Archive. Default: 9

Force Global Widget Coupon

This will force the coupon widget to display a specific coupon globally.

Force Home Page Coupon

This will force the coupon widget to display a specific coupon if on the home page (overrides global widget coupon).

If checked, this will display a “Powered by WP Coupons” link underneath the coupon widget. If you are in our affiliate program, make sure to enter your ID below.
