This plugin hasn’t been tested with the latest 3 major releases of WordPress. It may no longer be maintained or supported and may have compatibility issues when used with more recent versions of WordPress.

WP-Ecommerce History


By default, the widget generates an unordered list of permanent links to blog posts with the post title. The product listing ul has a class of wpec-history.

Coming in future versions is the following…

  • Support for post thumbnails
  • Support for logged out users
  • Dashboard for tracking what products your users have looked at.
  • Hooks and Filters (dependent on user feedback. I can’t really see a need for them right now as the plugin is quite simplistic).
  • Default styling.


  1. Make sure WP-Ecommerce is active. This plugin will not run unless WP-Ecommerce is installed.
  2. Upload wpec-history.php to your plugins folder.
  3. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress.
  4. Navigate to Appearance -> Widgets in the WordPress admin.


Is widget styling provided?

No, you have to style the unordered list yourself.
