Release notification v 1.5.2

Release notification v 1.5.2

Version Info

Version: 1.5.2

Release Date: Feb 12 2018

This version is compatible with Joomla 3.8.x and Joomla 3.7.x series.

Supported PHP Version: 5.4+, 7.0+, 7.1+

 

 

Before you upgrade 

We took immense care while creating 1.5.2 and tested upgrade procedures with different variations, but sellacious is used in so many different ways by our awesome users and customised so widely that we always recommend you to take backup of your website before upgrading to latest version. It is always recommended to run the upgrade in staging environment and not to upgrade it on your live website. 

 

Steps of upgradation: 

Login in your Joomla Administrator panel, and go to Extensions > Manage > Update you will find upgrades listed in the available updates. Upgrade Sellacious package, and Template.

The second level authentication

Sellacious has embedded second level authentication, this way you give direct access of your shop administrator without letting them inside your Joomla Administrator panel. You can also configure the URL of this sellacious backend by simply changing the folder name of sellacious backoffice, by default it is “/sellacious” like: http://www.yourwebsite.com/sellacious

 

The default user which will login inside sellacious backoffice is the super admin of Joomla. 

 

Change log v1.5.2

What’s New?

  • Product search feature now supports two types of searching integration - Sellacious Native (no indexing), Joomla Finder (uses indexing)
  • There was a shutdown of the Yahoo Forex API permanently which was used in sellacious. That caused our forex conversions to fail. Fixer API was available already, but most of our users were not aware of it. Now we are supporting Fixer and Google Finance APIs, whichever you want to use can be selected from global configuration.
  • You can now define multiple slabs for each shipping rule.
  • Improvements in Cart shipping calculation API.
  • Improvements in Sellacious Menu Manager.
  • Earlier products list page has two layout Masonry Grid, and Flat List. A new layout with Fixed Grid is added. This can be configured from the global configuration.
  • Backend edit link added in all products in frontend. Seller/admin can now directly jump to backend to edit the product from frontend.
  • Added global, category level and product level stock handling to allow fixed stock inventories and one time inventories.
  • Sync menu with sellacious category feature added with advanced option. See global configuration for details.
  • Select comprehensive zoom lense configuration from global configurations. Set different image zoom options for desktop and mobile zoom in or pop out.
  • You can choose in global configuration now which of the optional columns should be hidden from backend product catalogue page.

 

Bug Fixes:

 

  • Specifications cache failing on conservative MySQL configuration is now fixed
  • Fixed the issue when uninstalling sellacious after "sellacious" folder renamed to something else, caused problem.
  • Uninstalling individual extensions from sellacious package could break your site. Fixed this by disallowing the individual uninstall with a message that you need to uninstall entire package instead.
  • Fixed few Compatibility issue with PHP 7.2
  • Now shipping amount will be credited to seller if the item is shipped by seller and billed by seller.
  • On an e-product page any uploaded sample files would be listed, earlier it was not displayed.
  • Switching between variants on product details page is improved and faster.
  • Now a currency which is being used as any seller's default currency or as the global shop currency cannot be unpublished.
  • Product count in category blocks was including unpublished products. Now counting only published ones.
  • Show shipping address only if the cart has some shippable items.
  • All modules logic update to honour the allowed product type and other settings in the global configurations while displaying products. Previously module were showing all products without considering unpublished products.
  • Fixed bug where cache was not updating correctly on product publish, unpublish and trash actions.
  • We'll now automatically hide special category column in backend catalogue when no special category is published.
  • Fixed SQL error shown when viewing orders list when there are no orders yet.
  • Several other minor improvements and fixes.

What to expect in Joomla! version 3.7

What to expect in Joomla! version 3.7

Joomla! has geared up for its next version to be released soon, the much awaited version will see many significant changes and mark the introduction of various new features since its last release in July, 2016 hosting the features like subform field, show all menu items, improved UX, improved Joomla! updates, Menu type ACL, categories on the fly.
Considering the up-gradation brought up with the release of Joomla 3.5, v3.7 is foreseen to be a minor upgrade, yet Joomla clearing the air announced shipping of some main new features to be included by Joomla 3.7 , Beta version of which is set to be released around 24th of January 2017.
Joomla! announced  Robert Deutz (CMS maintainer and former PLT member) as the 3.7 Release Lead, with its news publish about its Version 3.7 and what to expect.
Talking in details, we have put together some of the expected features coming up with the version.

 

  • Routing:
    Router is the relevant code to create and process SEF URLs. Search engine friendly (SEF), human-readable URLs that make sense to both humans and search engines because they explain the path to the particular page they point to. Joomla will now have the scope of using a new routing strategy, The feature is placed as an option and you can enable it per component, easing to mix the old and new strategy if required. Joomla! also made it clear that If you are using an old extension that does not support the new routing then everything will still work as before. This will ensure many issues fixes faced with the current version of Joomla!. The update is announced by Joomla! In its Road to 3.7 news publish and will make its way in the new upcoming version.

 

  • Custom fields:
    Talking about custom fields, You will be able to add custom fields to articles, user profiles and contact forms. It will now be possible to attach a field to a field group, disable custom field feature to every component, 3rd party extension developers will be allowed to adapt the output to their extensions and the site integrator to customize them to their needs and much more.
    The new version of Joomla! Will see some significant update about custom fields, We are counting that with the release of this Joomla! 3.7, The coding of the same is pretty much done, and is available to be tested by anyone anyone just by downloading the  version of Joomla! available in GitHub repository.

     

  • Visual update of back-end template:
    As per release news published by Joomla in November, Apart from some big changes the back-end template will be visually improved involving some minor enhancements and refining usability. Changes are expected to be made only to ISIS template.  Mostly only affecting UI elements, background gradients envisioned to be removed.

  • Other Improvements:
    Joomla! 3.7 will bring many other notable changes, parallel Facebook login will be enabled, Adding a Facebook authentication plugin to render own fields in login modules and the login views of com_users. The feature is already been approved by the PLT.
    Drag and drop toolbar editing with TinyMCE, As we quote, With this version, you will now be allowed to customize and edit the default editor, You can open the TinyMCE editor plugin and add move or remove buttons.

     

     

     

    Improvements in article modals, Joomla 3.7 will mark a lot of time saving by enabling to create a menu directly while creating an article.

    New date and time Picker, this relatively minor proposed change would update Joomla’s date and time picker, everything will be controllable through the calendar field definition and the new time picker code would be based on select elements (24h or 12h based)

 


You can also direct at Github, https://github.com/joomla/joomla-cms for more detailed changes and test the features yourself.
