Welcome to our forum.

#2. you can use following code your theme files to display wishlist button

$post_id = get_the_id();
echo do_shortcode( '[wishlist_button id="'.$post_id.'"]' ); 

If you don’t know where to place the above code please use following code use under your theme functions.php file to display automatically wishlist button after content.

add_filter('the_content', 'wishlist_button_after_content');
function wishlist_button_after_content($content){

    $post_id = get_the_id();
    $content .= do_shortcode( '[wishlist_button show_count="yes" id="'.$post_id.'"]' );

    return $content;

I have checked your admin and i don’t have access to edit theme files so i can’t add these code.

#3, Other users will see the total vote count, not who voted.

#4, custom CSS for view count, vote, social icons background color

.single-wishlist .pickplugins_wl_meta .wl_meta {
    background: #f5daa9;

#5. please use following CSS to fix alignment issue on shop page

.pickplugins_wl_wishlist_buttons {
    margin-left: 25px;

see the screenshot
