Plugin Suggestions


This guide applies only to those who have CoCart Lite v3.0 or above installed.

Plugin Suggestions help you to discover other plugins that may provide features you are looking for from extending or supporting CoCart by adding suggestions to the WordPress plugin search results page.

These suggestions range from addons developed by CoCart or extensions developed by WooCommerce or Third Party developers that offer many useful features that some CoCart plugin users may not even realize is available, offering a functional solution to a particular problem.

Plugin Suggestion works directly on a plugin search page when you’re looking for a feature that matches any specific key phrases. It adds a search result to the bottom of the listing that highlights the plugin matching the keywords you’re searching for with it’s name, author and possibly a link to learn more about it.

Should you wish to just browse all available add-ons or supported extensions, you can just simply go to “CoCart” section under the plugin install page.

Should the plugin be already installed on your site, the action link will be replaced with either “Activate” or “Installed & Active”.

Using Plugin Suggestions

To use Plugin Suggestion:

  1. Start at Plugins → Add New in your wp-admin dashboard.
  2. Search for a plugin that CoCart my offer or be supported by.
  3. You should see a plugin card appear among the search results at the bottom.
  4. You will then be given an action link to learn more about it or purchase it.

These suggestions are only shown on the first page as to not spam repetition.

To disable Plugin Suggestion entirely, you can add the following snippet to your theme’s functions.php file or a functionality plugin:

add_filter( 'cocart_show_plugin_search', function() { return false; });
