Upgrade instructions:

Before performing an upgrade, make a backup of both your /sitestorepro/  and /estore_admin/ folders as well as you store MySQL database. To upgrade your current install, download the new installation zip file package from your account manager, extract the contents of the zip file to your desktop and then upload the folders inside the "Upgrade" folder (/sitestorepro/ and /estore_admin) up to your hosting account or server. Note: The new version will only update installs with a version ending in "i". If your shopping cart was installed prior to January 2015 or does not end with a "i", you will need to upgrade to our mysqli platform before applying the new version. If you need assistance with the upgrade process or would like our team to upgrade your install(s), please submit a support ticket. IMPORTANT : Unlike most of our past cart upgrades that do not affect an existing site design, this upgrade does require a minor addition to an existing CSS file in order to support some of the new flexbox features. After uploading the /sitestorepro/ and /estore_admin/ folders to your server, open up your current /css/site_store_pro_responsive.css file:

Replace the following css code:

/* CSS File ALL STORE FILES */ #left_navigation { float: left; visibility: visible; margin-top: 15px; margin-right: 0px; margin-bottom: 0px; margin-left: 15px; padding-left: 15px; width: 250px; } @media (min-width: 1200px) { #left_navigation { visibility:visible;} } @media (max-width: 1199px) { #left_navigation { width: 0px; padding: 0px; margin: 0px; visibility:hidden;} } /* LEFT NAV FORMATTING */  

With the new (updated) CSS rules below..

/* CSS File ALL STORE FILES */ .sspro_2017_content_container { display: -ms-flex; display: -webkit-flex; display: flex; } .sspro_2017_content_container > div { width: 276px; padding: 8px; margin-bottom: 7px; } .sspro_2017_content_container > div:first-child { margin-right: 25px; } #left_navigation { width: 275px; height: 100%; background-color: #1F1F1F; margin-top: 6px; } #sspro_order_summary { background-color: #606060; border-left: 1px solid #ccc; } #filters_button { display: none; } @media (min-width: 1200px) { #left_navigation {} } @media (max-width: 1199px) { #left_navigation {display: none;} .sspro_2017_content_container > div {width: 0px; padding: 0px; margin: 0px; } .sspro_2017_content_container > div:first-child { margin-left: -20px; } #filters_button { display: inline; } } /* LEFT NAV FORMATTING */
