Welcome to our forum.

#2. you can use following code your theme files to display wishlist button

$post_id = get_the_id();
echo do_shortcode( '[wishlist_button id="'.$post_id.'"]' ); 

If you don’t know where to place the above code please use following code use under your theme functions.php file to display automatically wishlist button after content.

add_filter('the_content', 'wishlist_button_after_content');
function wishlist_button_after_content($content){

    $post_id = get_the_id();
    $content .= do_shortcode( '[wishlist_button show_count="yes" id="'.$post_id.'"]' );

    return $content;

I have checked your admin and i don’t have access to edit theme files so i can’t add these code.

#3, Other users will see the total vote count, not who voted.

#4, custom CSS for view count, vote, social icons background color

.single-wishlist .pickplugins_wl_meta .wl_meta {
    background: #f5daa9;

#5. please use following CSS to fix alignment issue on shop page

.pickplugins_wl_wishlist_buttons {
    margin-left: 25px;

see the screenshot

Thank you soooo much for the previous detailed response.. awesome.. all of the solutions worked.. I have some more related issues/ bug/ questions/ feature requests.. I have tried to explain with the video to help understand the points… pls help me

– [ A] need the fix the line below the Wishlist in the shop page to be fixed

– [ B] Can the Wish list page have a sidebar? The wish list is not utilising the whole page of the screen.. the default page layout has the sidebar but not displaying

– [ C] The like button is not getting the colour immediately after liking it

– [D ] Change the default text in the search from Best Books to My Collections or something that I can change later…

– [E ] Is there a way .. users own wish lists can be shown in a separate way from the public ( other users ) wishlist?

– [ F] Can I Change the red colour button of the create wish list pop up… to be brand Orange/ Purple colour??

– [ G] The wish list is now working for all custom post pages..Now that custom post is appearing in all types of custom post ( recipes/posts/products/shop/events) .. can that be controlled by any means? I don't want it on Events and default Posts

– [H ] Can I make fixed category/tags of wish lists.. so that they can be filtered easily..? Or placed on celebrating pages by tags?

– [I ] Seems I can put others Wishlist into again in my Wishlist .. that's a nice feature to have. Thank you

– [J ] Can I have a custom CSS for Recipe Page.. to match the style and also if the name can be alternated to Recipe Collection etc….

– [L ] Once you click the great icon to create the Wishlist the box with the names are not nice to look … pls help

You can use following shortcode [wishlist_archive] to display all wishlist created on your site, and another shortcode comes with search [wishlist_search]
Hope that helps
