  • With this Solution, success message is not showing on same page...how to display wishlist success message also on same page? Jul 16, 2020 at 14:44

Actually the "addAction" in turn calls "_addItemToWishList" function, so you have to override that function in wishlist IndexController.php

Refer the below link, it shows how to override wishlist controller, also take care of the issue it has posted:


As it says replace the $this->_redirect('*', array('wishlist_id' => $wishlist->getId())); with $this->_redirectReferer();

Also don't let any spaces between "<" and tag name in any of the magento's xml files, it breaks xml structure.

For cart you have to override cart controller with minor function name change.

Hope this helps, let me know in comments.


Override this method Mage_Wishlist_IndexController::addAction() and replace below code:

$this->_redirect('*', array('wishlist_id' => $wishlist->getId()));
