Translation issue with the version 1.0.6

In order to import correctly the plugin strings in the new system, we had to change the text domain form ‚ywcds‘ to ‚yith-donations-for-woocommerce‘. Once the plugin will be imported in the translate.wordpress.org system, the translations of other languages will be downloaded directly from WordPress, without using any .po and .mo files. Moreover, users will be able to participate in a more direct way to plugin translations, suggesting texts in their languages in the dedicated tab on translate.wordpress.org. During this transition step, .po and .mo files will be used as always, but in order to be recognized by WordPress, they will need to have a new nomenclature, renaming them in: yith-donations-for-woocommerce-.po yith-donations-for-woocommerce-.mo. For example, if your language files were named ywcds-en_GB.po and ywcds-en_GB.mo, you will just have to rename them respectively as yith-donations-for-woocommerce-en_GB.po and yith-donations-for-woocommerce-en_GB.mo.

Is the plugin compatible with all WordPress themes?

Compatibility with all themes is impossible, because they are too many, but generally if themes are developed according to WordPress and WooCommerce guidelines, YITH plugins are compatible with them.
Yet, we can grant compatibility with themes developed by YIThemes, because they are constantly updated and tested with our plugins. Sometimes, especially when new versions are released, it might only require some time for them to be all updated, but you can be sure that they will be tested and will be working in a few days.

How can I get support if my WooCommerce plugin is not working?

If you have problems with our plugins or something is not working as it should, first follow this preliminary steps:

  • Test the plugin with a WordPress default theme, to be sure that the error is not caused by the theme you are currently using.
  • Deactivate all plugins you are using and check if the problem is still occurring.
  • Ensure that you plugin version, your theme version and your WordPress and WooCommerce version (if required) are Update and that the problem you are experiencing has not already been solved in a later plugin update.

If none of the previous listed actions helps you solve the problem, then, submit a ticket in the forum and describe your problem accurately, specify WordPress and WooCommerce versions you are using and any other information that might help us solve your problem as quickly as possible. Thanks!

The plugin works as suggested in that it allows you to add a donation product and setup donations for checkout. The caveat is that it only works when used as a widget and not as a normal WooCommerce product. Whenever you use the assigned WooCommerce product and single page the plugin adds a duplicate donation product to cart at a cost of $0.00 so you end up with 2 donation products, one with the custom donation value and another with $0.00. https://wordpress.org/support/topic/duplicate-donation-in-cart/#post-11823159 If you're OK with only using Widgets for your donations then this plugin is fine. Anything past that you start running into issues and oddities such as mentioned above. I wish this plugin made clear that it only works properly with Widgets. The description makes it sound like Widgets are an additional feature not a requirement.
