    A simple add_action() hook would easily remove the need to hard code things into the theme files. Not sure why the plugin author doesn’t suggest this or better yet add the add_action() code into the plugin themselves.

    Anyways looks like a neat plugin.


  2. Its better to have control. For ex. where do you want to show Add to Favorites… where the dates are… below the post etc…

    Updating WordPress would possibly overwrite any changes you make to your files also I believe. Then you would have to remember where to re-add that code. This could be a bad idea if you’re running with several plugins and start changing files by hand. I’m not speaking as a professional but I believe it would be best if any changes to files should be left inside the templates of a Child Theme

  4. On occasion, we’ve used WP Favorite Posts on client sites and our own ventures…mostly on sites using WordPress as a CMS. While we have used the php code with child themes, our preference is to use the plugin’s shortcode (also noted in the article) which gives more flexibility on placement within a page and is not theme centric.

    Since WPBeginner didn’t note the client site, as a demo/reference you can check out one use of WP Favorite Posts at http://newsfeedgadget.com, our “companion” reference venture for news readers/social magazines/iGoogle gadgets. The home page (i.e., MyNFG) acts as a personal favorites page and most content pages can be favorited (i.e., Add to MyNFG).


  5. @Bob De Young – Yeah we created this for a membership site only. So couldn’t possibly reference it. Because our users would have to PAY to get in to see user library.
