Using the MyOrderDesk Plugin in WordPress Follow
You have the capability of easily embedding MyOrderDesk into a WordPress website, without needing to know how to program at all. These instructions are for those customers with a WordPress site already. If you do not have a WordPress site, we do have some layouts we created that are available. Your sales representative or one of our support members can give you more details on that option if you are interested. Here is a link to a page showing the different options available.
NOTE: If you have purchased a WordPress template after January 1, 2019, your website will already have the plugin installed.
1.) Login to your WordPress webpage, and navigate to Plugins > Add New
2.) Search for MyOrderDesk, and click the Install button. After a few moments, it will change to an Activate button. Click that as well.
The plugin will now be installed for use. If you need to install the plugin manually, you can follow these instructions: https://codex.wordpress.org/Managing_Plugins#Manual_Plugin_Installation
To get the plugin to know which page to display, you will need to enter your MyOrderDesk Provider ID for the page you want to display. There are two ways you can locate this:
Navigate to the top-level order page of your MyOrderDesk webpage. The URL of your webpage will look similar to the following:
The last set of numbers at the end of your URL will be your Provider ID, and you can enter that into the field.
While logged into your webpage as an administrator, open the administration menu by clicking the three horizontal lines in the top left corner of the screen.
Directly below the word “Administration”, you will see a dropdown menu that says “[#####] Your Company Name” The numbers inside of the square brackets will be your Provider ID, and you can enter that into the field.
Additionally, you need to fill in your MyOrderDesk Hosted Address which can be found from Site Settings > Home Page & Domains. We recommend setting up a custom domain when Iframing MyOrderDesk with the plugins. You can read more about that here: Setting your Home Page Address and Custom Domains.
The default Landing Page is /w2p.
Once you successfully enter your account Provider ID, the page layout should change and you should see a list of shortcodes that can be used to display specific pages based on that Provider ID.
The final step of setup is putting the shortcode onto the respective pages that you want your site to appear on.
To do this, all you need to do is copy the [mod-xxxxxx] text, and paste it into the page that you want it to display on. The plugin will handle everything else for you, and it’s that simple!
For more complex scenarios, where you want to embed specific order forms, catalogs, or use a branded site, you can implement that by changing the modifier designated to it.
- [mod-orderform form=”###”] is used to link specific order forms
- [mod-catalog catalog=”###”] is used to link specific catalogs
site=”###” can be added to any shortcodes as well, to change what site is being displayed, rather than the master set in settings. This lets you link branded websites.
