Please take time to read the knowledgebase as someone has probably asked your question before and we have probably lovingly created a detailed answer :)
Once you are validated you can start adding widgets and shortcodes to show the comparisons on your WordPress site.
Go to Appearance > Widgets and add Compress Mobile Search and / or ComparePress Top Phones to whichever sidebar(s) you want. The settings in these should be fairly obvious but below you will see what the various options mean:
The WordPress Shortcode API (more on the API here) allows you the end WordPress user full control of where plugins display their content whilst not having to worry about Custom Fields. With this is mind let's have a look at how ComparePress uses shortcodes...
There is currently 1 main ComparePress module which has Shortcodes set up to work via 4 different areas
These can be shown using the following shortcode structure:
[showphones feature ='feature_name']
Simply replace feature_name with one of the following values:
1 megapixel camera, 2 megapixel camera, 3 megapixel camera, 5 megapixel camera, 8 megapixel camera, large megapixel, 3g, bluetooth, camera, data, designer, easy to use ,flip phone, google android, gps, hsdpa, imode, mp3, normal phone, pink, qwerty, quad band, radio, slider phone. slim, speakerphone, symbian os, swivel phone, touchscreen phone, video recording, wifi, windows os
These can be shown using the following structure:
[showphones make ='manufacturer_name']
Simply replace manufacturer_name with one of the following values:
3, acer, alcatel, apple, blackberry, google, htc, land rover, lg, motorola, nokia, o2, orange, palm, samsung, sony ericsson, swap, tmobile, vodafone
These can be shown using the following strucutre:
[showphones launchdate ='date_value']
Simply replace date_value with one of the following values:
999 - this is for phones that are coming soon
latest - this is for phones that have been released recently
This allows you to show just X number of deals for a specific handset. This can be useful if you want to set your home page to be based around 1 particular mobile phone handset or maybe you want to add the deals directly within a review.
[showphones handsetid ='handset_value']
Simply replace handset_value with one of the mobile phone names:
Sony Ericsson Satio black - This will show all Sony Ericsson Satio black deals ONLY. Note: The handsetid value has no - between words!
Handset AND Network Specific: [showphones handsetid ='htc desire' network='o2']
Handset AND Network AND Number of Deals Specific: [showphones handsetid ='htc desire' network='o2' number='6']
