This plugin hasn’t been tested with the latest three 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.
