Can a subscribe button be used in a widget like the buy button can be, using the PHP Code plugin?
For Buy button: <?php echo print_eStore_buy_button(1); ?>
What for Subscribe button?

Hi Michael, I believe this is the code you are looking for:
<?php echo print_eStore_subscribe_button_form(1) ?>
Displays a “Subscription” button from a Theme file
(eg. Sidebar, header, footer)
You can find all the shortcodes and PHP functions for the eStore here: http://www.tipsandtricks-hq.com/ecommerce/wp-estore-shortcodes-and-functions-reference-460
Please let me know if this is not what you are looking for.

Yay! That worked! Thanks Ivy.
Have _form at the end of the command is what I didn’t know.

Last year you added a PHP subscribe box to http://www.freedomtobe.com.au. I had deactived it whilst doing some change overs and re installed it again today with a new download and everything is working prefectly. got rid of that dreadful google chrome
However I have done a cut and paste of the php code (which is exactly the same here on this thread)except for the number of the item… and put it into http://www.janmarie.com.au and it is not working.. the fields do not come up?
I remember when you were doing http://www.freedomtobe.com.au there were some issues. I use an artisteer theme – is there some reason that the php code does not work with this theme?

Remember, if you are planning to place the PHP example code on a WordPress post or page then you need to have a plugin (e.g. PHP Execution plugin – http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/php-execution-plugin/) that lets you execute PHP code in WordPress page or post. If you have such a plugin installed on your site then you should be able to copy and paste the example code in HTML viewJuly 1, 2011 at 9:17 pm #19660
Thank you amin
I downloaded the plugin and activated it. However is there something I am missing?
I am not able to get the plugin to display in the spot where you grab it to move to the LHS and open as a PHP widget box where I can place the code into it.

Can you please tell me the exact line of PHP code that you are using?July 2, 2011 at 4:20 am #19662
<?php echo eStore_free_download_form(3); ?>
However it is not the code…it is because I am using a text box, because there is no php widget box to drag over the the RHS into the widget section.
that is what I am missing! On http://www.freedomtobe.com.au there is this Widget PHP Code box
in which to put the code into…on http://www.janmarie.com. I dont know HOW to get that bit – it did not appear after I activated the plug in.July 2, 2011 at 11:43 pm #19663
Okay… this post should help:

Thank you…got it working. the only thing left to fix is the “Download Icon” at the moment it is coming up X. When Ivy did my other website it had a nice download menu bar but I cant see how she got it into the php code.

You must have entered a wrong URL for the “Button Image URL”. Make sure the image URL that you entered in the “Button Image URL” field is not resulting a 404 (enter the URL in the browser’s address bar and verify it first)July 3, 2011 at 3:46 am #19666
Thanks Admin….this was not listed on my other site which is why I couldnt work out how Amy did it…all good thanks heaps.
