Marketpress price shown after other plugin output

Hi there,
Love the ease of setting up Marketpress. This thing functions so lightly and quickly, I'm kinda speechless at times.

I was wondering if you had thoughts on why my sociable and tweet this plugins have their output showing before the price? I'm assuming the other plugins are using a filter or something and marketpress outputs the price after the_content or something?

I tried deactivating the plugins and re-activating them - hoping it was a sequence thing, but it didn't help. I can probably get rid of this plugin and find others, but I'm guessing we would have the same issue.

Any suggestions? Is this something that can be tweaked in Marketpress?

    Hi raymondmannion,

    Glad you're finding MarketPress easy to use!

    In testing it out, those plugins are adding to the content in the post itself using the_content() filter, so I couldn't really see a way to get them to display after the MarketPress price/quantity fields.

    You could perhaps create MarketPress template files where those MarketPress fields are added in an area distinctly separated from the content. There's a file documenting this process in the MarketPress folder as follows:
    marketpress\marketpress-includes\themes\Themeing_MarketPress.txt

    I'll ask a few of the guys over here if they've got other ideas too, as I couldn't really see another way to do it.

    Cheers,
    David

    Thanks David,
    I see what you mean. In the end, we decided to get rid of sociable and tweet_this. I ended up also tweaking template_functions.php. That's where I saw how it is calling the post content before appending the meta fields, so I see how this is out of MarketPress's control.

    The tweak I needed - and I needed this on both sites where I implemented Market Press - is to have a Cart-checkout button/link more prominently displayed. Both sites didn't want the sidebar widget in place - they wanted something in the main menu with an icon and they wanted to have the "Add to cart" turn into a "Checkout now" button after adding the item or something like that.

    In the end, I added an <img> and <href> to function mp_buy_button which I'm guessing will be overwritten next time I upgrade (Not much of a WP developer - just enough to be dangerous)

    So - that is a nice-to-have for the future. In the meantime, I'll say thank you and mark this as resolved!
