Hi Forum, Hi Magento-Team,

I believe most of my costumer will buy my products as a guest,
so it would be absurd to ask them to register before they could use the wishlist.
So I would have to disable the wishlist.
That would be sad.
Cause I prefer the wishlist by myself if I browse through shops instead
of using the shopping card. Its like “not so official”.
Its a playground before I decide to buy.
I saw that some shops saved my wishlist-entrys as cockie.
So next time I visited the shop I saw my old wishlist entrys.
That would be a nice feature.
Its something like this planed or still possible?

Thanks
Jan

I personally think that using a cookie for the wishlist is not a good idea - what happens if someone else uses the computer after you and visits the same site - they would see the same wishlist - meaning they would have to clear it to start their own wishlist and then when you go back it would be incorrect also.

Thanks for replay.
But whats about using a wishlist for guests without cookies?
For instance the german website http://www.bol.de provides a wishlist for guests.

I think it is very interessting to talk about the wishlist for guests.
Shops like http://www.bol.de use a wishlist for guests.
Will magento provide it too.

I would like to get an official answer.
Is it planed?
Who can I ask about it?

Maybe it was wrong to talk about cookies.
But thats not the point of my question.

No one else interested in a feature like this?
I mean how much people will register to use the wish list?
At the moment the wish list is useless.

I strongly recommend you the Guest Wishlist extension from MagentoGarden. It’s really cool, not only have the anonymous wishlist function, but also the AJAX, to improve the user experience. You may have a look at it.

Do not order from MagentoGarden. They do not deliver, don’t respond, we are unable to get our money back.
