Yes, it’s been a long time coming, but we’re proud to announce that version 1.5 of Storefront Elegance is available for immediate download. This version fixes compatibility with the latest version of WP eCommerce and pretty much future-proofs it against any WPEC upgrades because we’ve removed the theme template files and instead added our custom code through action hooks and filters built into WPEC.
In addition, we’ve performed some much need maintenance…
- moved all scripts to the footer for better performance
- rewrote the add to cart feature
- replaced the thickbox with fancybox like in our other themes
- upgraded the jQuery version
- moved additional product images to below the product description
- added in automatic updates!
- fixed a ton of bugs
We may make additional adjustments over the next week, but thanks to the automatic updates feature, you won’t have to worry about those anymore! We wanted to get it into your hands ASAP as we know a ton of you have waited patiently. We hope you enjoy this version even more. Existing customers can download the new version immediately from their members homepage.
For everyone else, this is a sign of things to come…Elegance is our flagship theme and we needed to get it right so we could make the same updates to the rest of our themes which also were affected by the 3.8.9 updates to WP eCommerce. We’re working as hard as we can on it.
