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.

Jigoshop V1.1 new features

We now support a radical new payment gateway called ‘Cash on Delivery’ which allows you to be handed currency when you deliver a product, as well as adding an innovative shipping method for ‘Local Pickup’ if someone collects their purchase from you!

In addition to those radical innovations, we also now support the following languages: Italian, Norwegian, Polish, Portuguese, Portuguese Brazilian, and Turkish. There’s a new shortcode for Products Search, a new setting for showing stock amounts, and guest purchases can be made.

Fixes include stopping products appearing as ‘Out of Stock’ on upgrading to the previous version, allowing a full uninstall of Jigoshop (although we hope you never need it!), and reducing the overall file size by 1MB.
