Synchronization with theme
Rehub theme has extended synchronization with plugin
You can synchronize main offer of post with offers from Content Egg. For this, go to theme option – Affiliate and find field Save data from Content Egg to post offer section. Here you can choose modules which will be connected with Main Offer section of theme. What does this mean? This means that after saving data from modules, data of best offer will be added also to Post offer section of theme. So, this data will be used in theme for creating offer button in loops and in top tables, syncing price, for offer which will be used for price alert and price tracker modules. Not always best price means best offer, so, we added a way to choose which of offer will be used for synchronization (check bottom of Post offer section)
For woocommerce products – synchronization has another place to enable. Check article
Price alert and Price history
To enable this feature, first of all, go to Content Egg – settings and enable there history period and price alert
Then, don’t forget to enable synchronization with plugin in Theme option – affiliate. After this, you will see select in each post (end of page)
So, you can control which of product will be choosed for synchronization of theme’s Main offer, price tracking and price alert. By default, it’s lowest price product, but you can choose any product which already added in Post by Content Egg.
Now, to see price alert and price history in post, you can shoose one of available Post Layouts integrated with Content Egg, like “Price comparison”, “Full width Content Egg”, etc.
If you use another post layout, you can add price module to post with shortcode [content-egg-block template=custom/all_pricehistory_full] for price history and [content-egg-block template=custom/all_pricealert_full] for price alert
Also, you can add price history block for each Amazon product with shortcodes
[content-egg module=Amazon template=custom/price_alert] [content-egg module=Amazon template=custom/price_history]
Free or PRO?
There are two versions of plugin: free and paid. Both of them are similar, difference only in number of modules. You can get free version here or go to Rehub – Plugins tab and enable plugin from there.
Modules which are available in PRO version is here
Last updated Widget and Product grid
Latest version of plugin has very interesting function which is called “Price Movers”. Imagine, that you have many offers on site and you want to show offers which has maximum price drop during special period, for example, last week. Now, you show such offers. There are two modules for this. First is Widget CE: Price movers. Add it in Appearance – widgets. I recommend to use “Sidebar Top offers” template for widget to better fit with theme design
Another way is useful when you want to show this function as product grid, for example, on homepage
For this, use shortcode
[content-egg-price-movers template="custom/wdgt_price_movers_grid" cols=4 limit=4]
you can change cols to another number. for full width page i recommend to use 4 or 5, for pages with sidebar – use 3
You can add also parameters to shortcode
last_update=7 (default) will show updated offers last 7 days.
limit=8 will show 8 offers instead 4
This post layout requires Content Egg Plugin to be active and Product must have synchronized Content Egg offers
You can see this notice in some posts. This means that you use one of Post or Product Layout which was made special for Content Egg and has many automatic parts. This post layout requires to have enabled Main Offer synchronization. So, your Post or Product must have synchronized offer.
Check section “Synchronization with theme” above to enable synchronization for posts and products. Please, note, just enabling synchronization will not make anything for this error. You must have synchronized offer. Synchronization will be made once you save post or after each price update.
How to check?
For Posts. If you have auto filled Post offer section – you have synchronized offer
For Woocommerce – if your product has auto populated Price or sale price – you have synchronized offer
How to use Theme layouts but without synchronization? It’s easy, just use one of Post or Product Layout which doesn’t have “Content Egg” in name. Such post layout doesn’t require synchronized offer.
Price is not best after synchronization
Another common issue – you enabled synchronization, but theme shows not best price among all modules. Usually, it’s because you enabled not all modules for synchronization. Theme will choose best offer ONLY among modules which are marked for synchronization.
Another possible reason – you have manual marked offer for synchronization, for example, inside product area. When you do this inside product, this offer will be marked always as best offer and all other offers will be ignored
