सामान्य प्रश्न

How do I add the Caddy cart icon & link to my menu or header?

Caddy has an option in it’s settings to insert the cart icon into your menu. If you want to add the cart icon somewhere else in your header you can use our widget or shortcode:

Search for the “Caddy Cart” widget and add it to your header.

Or, you can use our included shortcodes using the “Shortcodes in Menus” plugin and then adding the following Caddy shortcodes:
[cc_saved_items text=’Saves’ icon=’yes’]
[cc_cart_items text=’Cart’ icon=’yes’]

The “text” value is the text that you want to appear in your menu.
The “icon” value (yes or no) will display a heart icon for the “Saves” link and a cart icon for the “Cart” link

Does Caddy work with multisite?


Can I translate Caddy?

Absolutely! You can find instructions here.

Will Caddy slow down my site?

No. We’ve built Caddy with performance in mind and have fine tuned it for speed.

Worst customer service ever. Have sent messages on email, contact form and messenger and have not heard anything. The side cart cannot be modified what I can find so therefore the plugin is useless to me. The information showing up there is not correct for me. Also the cart is really small and I cant change the size of it. And since they are not answering I cannot find a solution to it either.

This extension is great. However there is an issue when using divi. Divi builder won’t show on some case. In order to fix this, simply replace in the file wp-content/plugins/caddy/caddy.php the method run_caddy by the following : function run_caddy() {if (!isset($_GET[‘et_fb’])) {$plugin = new Caddy();$plugin->run();}}

I’m super happy with the plug-in! Works easy and visually looks great. The service was also great, I had problems with configuration due to my theme, but Mike fixed it for me in no time! I recommend it!

Hello as I said before I like your plugin! But you should not take a tags for interactive elements in any case, otherwise there are problems with SEO. This concerns almost all control elements in your plugin. You should use a button tag or similar Read the Google Docs about the “links not crawlable” issue

Amazing plugin. SideCart/Basket is so much better than standard mini cart than most websites are using. Developers are very active and friendly, open for adding suggestions. Free version is extremely generous in its functionality, premium version allows you to customize everything and get instant support.
