We have posted the new version of the Site Store Pro and WPCartPro shopping carts. The August 2022 release is our biggest release in over 5 years and contains tons of new features and a completely new and expanded WPCartPro WordPress shopping cart!
Automated Database Install Now Included In All Versions! The database installation for new store installs is now completely automated and you can select if you want a clean store install or a demo store install directly from your browser during the cart activation. You no longer have to connect to your database server using a tool such as NaviCat or PHPMyAdmin to install the correct database file (clean or demo). In addition to the automated database install, the entire installation and activation process has been streamlined and we have updated both the WPCartPro and Site Store Pro Install Guides with the new, simple install sequence.
We also included a shortcodes “Quick Reference” guide in the WordPress cart to help developers quickly customize their WordPress site with WPCartPro. The shortcodes reference is available as a new menu items on the WPCartPro plugin and it opens directly inside of WordPress. View WP Cart Pro Shortcode Quick Reference Guide (PDF)
Below are the new and updated features for the August 2022 (2.2208) Release:
- New Quick View Item Popup – Cleaner Display (FlexBox CSS) that is not dependent on bootstrap. Item Quick View Modal window can now be triggered for individual items from anywhere on the site on both Site Store Pro and WPCartPro installs. (instead of only from product search result grids, home page displays and the store default landing page).
- New Automated Database Installation – No longer need to connect to database and install SQL script manually. The most requested feature addition by designers and developers!
- New Social Logins plugin included for all platforms. The AppZonio.com Social Logins plugins allows the user to login their with Google, Twitter and Facebook accounts to bypass the user account registration and therefore increase order conversions.
