Jigoshop Version 1.2 official release

Posted in Development and tagged , , , , on by .

The latest version of Jigoshop is officially released today, so you’ll have the opportunity to upgrade to the latest version when you next log into your WordPress site, or download V1.2 manually if you prefer, or you’re setting up Jigoshop for the first time.

As with all your releases, we’ve tested internally, and Version 1.2 has also been available as a Beta Developer Release since April 11 - as a result we’ve received great contributions from a large number of the Jigoshop community, from spotting bugs to fixing them. Everyone has got involved, and we want to keep encouraging feedback and suggestions from everyone, whether you’re new to Jigoshop (and even WordPress) or you’ve been developing WordPress eCommerce for 10+ years. And as promised, one contributor to the beta feedback will shortly be receiving a free official Jigoshop plugin or extension as a thank you for their help.

As with any update to WordPress or any plug-in or extension please back up your install and products before upgrading.


Jigoshop V1.2:

The full release notes for Jigoshop V1.2 are available below, but highlights that you’ll notice straight away include the great new Permalink options to change the way your website addresses display. That’s a key feature if you’re optimizing your shop for search engines, or you have specific preferences on how the URLs are displayed. You can set your own product category/tag slugs, or begin product URLs with the category or shop address as desired.

Anyone with a larger store will appreciate bulk editing on stock levels and prices, and your customers will now be able to take advantage of personalized products. That means buyers can now add their own information to appear on their purchases to customize gifts and purchases with names or specific messages.

Emails for orders can now be customized, and ‘Email Invoice’ can also resend download links for digital products to cut down on customers contacting you if they’re accidentally deleted it. And as always, we’re continuing to improve the way Jigoshop handles tax, whether it’s to improve individual billing options or to handle the various rules and regulations around the world.

    What’s this ?

    New: $0.01 charge on Paypal if configured and total is free

    • Jigoshop

      Some shops offer free products but charge shipping on those products. PayPal doesn’t like having an item total that is 0 so the 0.01 charge is to help PayPal process transactions like these.

  • Grace

    Release is working great - but was a bit of a shock to see the styling of the Settings areas gone. Was that intentional or perhaps a glitch in my update to the new release?
    (no shading of boxed areas etc)


    • Jigoshop

      Totally intentional. We prefer the native look over the grey boxes of previous versions.

  • teamworks

    There seems to be a lot of tax issues. Firstly the tax isn’t calculated properly and secondly when adding multiple items to the basket on the checkout page it only taxes one item (which again is the wrong amount).

    • Jigoshop

      Try updating to the latest 1.2.2

  • bingoboy

    Do you have a list of changed files? I’m stil using v1.1.

    How do I do to customize my emails? I’m primarily thinking about the “email invoice” that I’m able to send by clicking on the button when I’m viewing an order in the system.

    I have also noticed that the email invoice doesn’t have the payment link any longer. Why? Not that I ever got it to work but…

    Thanks a lot!

    Question, for %product_cat%, where do you put that? In Custom Structure: Permalink Settings? It might be dangerous for losing all the links. Am I right?
    I tried to set it up using your new features,
    Prepend shop categories / tags with base page (this takes all my pages to home page)
    Prepend product permalinks with shop base page (this takes all my product pages to home page)
    I was hoping to change http://www.1000bulbzone.com/product-category/household-led-bulbs/ to http://www.1000bulbzone.com/shop/household-led-bulbs/
    Am I configuring things wrong?
    Thank you.
