wishlist re-installation

wishlist re-installation

I have taken over the web design/development role at a company who uses Magento for their website. The previous employee has deleted important files from the backend to make the wishlist work/function. What files do I need to make the default wishlist functionality work? Like it would with a fresh installation of magento.

Thanks for your help.


Re: wishlist re-installation


If I was you I would download the base version of Magento that your store is running. You're then going to be looking at copying the following files:

  • app/code/core/Mage/Wishlist
  • app/design/frontend/base/default/template/wishlist/
  • app/design/frontend/base/default/layout/wishlist.xml
  • app/locale/en_US/Mage_Wishlist.csv

If you're using a version with the RWD theme installed (e.g 1.9.x) then as well as the base/default files above - you'll need to copy the rwd/default equivalents too


Then inside of app/etc/Mage_All.xml - ensure that you have code similar to the below inside it(there will be other nodes too)


I think I've covered all the files above... give it a go and get back to us if you are still having issues.
