For a correct functioning, once you enable the plugin, a "Wishlist" page is generated on WordPress: it includes the "[yith_wcwl_wishlist]" shortcode that provides the insertion of the table of all products added to the wishlist.

You can show the wishlist on any page of your site, different from the one selected by default, and you can choose it in "Wishlist Page" field of plugin settings dashboard.

Select page wishlist

Please note: the page you choose to use as "wishlist" page must necessarily include the "[yith_wcwl_wishlist]" shortcode.
