I'm trying to use the second method. I have a custom post type "villa" I tried to change the 'post_type' => 'post' to 'post_type' => 'villa' but unfortunately nothing happened. No results at all are shown on the favorites page. Can you please advise me to the right direction. Thank you!

Hey , please tell me where to put this code or file.

I am trying to use this in conjunction with the JS callback
favorites_after_button_submit to remove an
<li> item from the custom favorites list when it is un-favorited (the way the default favorites list works), but it seems the callback only provides the current list of favorites and not which
<li> was acted on. Is there some other way to achieve this functionality?

Anyone managed to instead of clearing all favorites, clear by choice?
Of course this can be done by clicking on the fav btn on post again, but would be convenient to do it within the saved favs page.

Hello, nice plugin and very helpful function. One thing is that the query won't display private posts as favorites, even with
'post_status' => 'any'. Any ideas ?

Hello all! I am "tripling up" on 2 of the previous comments. Been working on my custom display for the last couple of days and can't get the favorites button to remove posts dynamically one-by-one like it does when you output the list with the shortcode. Any hints on how to call these functions within my custom query? If this just isn't possible yet, please let me know - I have a tendency to keep trying things until I figure it out :)

To put the option to clean, without removing all, you just call the_favorites_button button ($ post_id, $ site_id) Inside the loop on the page that lists all the user's favorites logged in or anonymous.
You can change the text of the favorited button to remove favorite.
This worked for me.
I hope this tip is useful, check out my English is not very good.

Great plugin, and very useful code snippet. Thank you!

This code no longer seems to work for anonymous users. When I'm logged into the admin, it works fine.
As an anonymous user, my favorites do not appear in the custom query.
Edit: discovered that this code is not working because the server is running PHP 7- I tested with 5.4.4 and it still works.

For those who wants to avoid loop from repeating in category template use
if ( $favorites_query->have_posts() ) : $favorites_query->the_post(); and remove
