How to Optimize Wishlist Plugin Performance

When managing an online WooCommerce store, delving into the advanced settings can unlock enhanced performance and provide a more tailored shopping experience for your customers. The ‘Advanced’ tab of the Wishlist plugin offers powerful options for fine-tuning operations at a granular level. This guide will walk you through these settings to optimize your site’s Wishlist  functionality.

Accessing Advanced Settings

To adjust the advanced settings of your Wishlist plugin, go to WooCommerce > Settings > Wishlist > Advanced in your WordPress dashboard.

 Frontend Ajax URL Customization

The Frontend Ajax URL is a critical setting for AJAX operations on your store’s frontend. Here you can specify the URL that the Wishlist plugin should use for asynchronous web applications on your WooCommerce site.

Suggestions for Setting the Ajax URL

The default `/wp-admin/admin-ajax.php` path is commonly used, but depending on your server configuration, you might need a full URL.

For sites with specific security configurations or custom setups, providing the full path to “admin-ajax.php” can help avoid cross-domain issues.

Guest User Data Handling

  • This setting determines how the Wishlist plugin interacts with guest user data.
  • Options for Guest User Data
  • Cookie  : The most common method, which uses cookies to track guest user sessions and Wishlist preferences.
  • Other methods (if available) might include using local storage or database entries, depending on the plugin’s capabilities and your site’s requirements.

Saving Your Changes

After you have configured the advanced settings to match your store’s needs, ensure to click ‘Save changes’ to apply the new configurations.
