About Advanced Recently Viewed for Magento 2.

Your customers often want to return to a previously visited item. Reasons can vary but most often it’s due to checking if certain compatibility features of the previous item matched with the new one, other times because they wanted to compare to products against one another before deciding on which one to purchase, other times simply to return to a certain product scope from where they could use the breadcrumbs to traverse back up the category hierarchy.

Whatever the reason, the customers want to re-find a previous product, yet on sites without a “Recently viewed items” feature, the only ways to do this were either through extensive use of the browser “Back” button or to actually re-find the product by searching for it or plowing through the product categories once again.

With a “Recently viewed items” list readily available throughout the entire site, users are reassured that re-finding products will be easy and they will therefore be more likely to explore an extra couple of items as they know returning to their current favorite won’t be a hassle.

Because the list is automatically generated for any user, it is worth considering a couple of privacy features. While the vast majority of users will enjoy the “Recently viewed items” list, a few users will want to remove these items because they don’t want others to know the products they’ve browsed. To overcome these situations we also offer the option to “Clear all” to clear all the products in the user’s current list.

We also added the possibility to add a custom static block right next to your list. In this static block you can easily add promotions to featured sales or categories to improve visibility to those sections of your website for returning customers.

How to Install the Extension.

  • Step 1:
    Before installing the RecentlyViewed extension on a Magento 2 store, please check the extension compatibility. This extension is currently compatible with the following Magento versions: 2.0.X. - 2.2.6. It is recommended to install the extension on a testing server before installing it on a live (production) server.
  • Step 2:
    Copy the extension files to below paths of your magento 2 instance. If ‘app/code/WeltPixel’ folder is missing, please create it manually:
  • Step 3:
    Access the root of your magento 2 project from command line and run the following commands:
    php bin/magento module:enable WeltPixel_Backend --clear-static-content
    php bin/magento module:enable WeltPixel_RecentlyViewedBar --clear-static-content
    php bin/magento setup:upgrade
  • Step 4:
    Flush any cache that you might still have enabled on your server or in Magento.
  • Step 5:
    Woohoo, the extension is installed!

How to Upgrade the extension.

  • Step 1. Remove extension code under app/code/WeltPixel/RecentlyViewed before adding the new extension files. The extension may be refactored and old unused files may cause random issues so it's best to only keep the latest version of the files.
  • Step 2. Follow normal installation instructions above.
