  • Release Notes: v9.1.1 to v9.1.21

    After the release of version 9.1.0 in August, minor incremental updates were made to the 3dcart software. While the majority of updates were fixes and general updates to the software, some new features were also introduced in some increments.

    • CCAvenue India Gateway
      New Gateway added. (KB)

    • Options template modification
      A change was made allowing products to be linked to multiple option templates at the same time. (KB)
    • Quotes - Allow Custom Price for Phone Orders
      Update to the Order Quotes Module allowing the store to use custom phone order prices with the quote system
    • Complete Button for Not Complete Orders
      A new function was added to Not Complete Orders allowing merchants to open the order as a phone order to complete it.(KB)
    • Qty. Discounts as Fractional Amounts
      Added the ability to create bulk discount ranges using fractional amounts. (KB)
    • Dropdown Menu Sorting for Reward Redeemable Products
      A change was made for stores using a CORE Theme which will let shoppers sort the redeemable items list by name, part number, and number of points required to redeem. (KB)
    • Use Shipping Markup for Handling Cost
      A new setting was introduced to the existing Handling cost function allowing merchants to use the product's individual shipping markup as handling charges. Previously, the only handling option was to have handling costs calculated on the whole order, while this new setting will allow the flexibility of applying handling on a per item basis. (KB)
    • Amazon Pay Checkout
      On version 9.1.6 we introduced the Amazon's latest (at the time) Amazon Pay Checkout (formerly known as Amazon Payments). This new method required an onboarding process from the 3dcart Online Store Manager as well as use of a Core theme. (KB)
      Note: This integration was further updated for version 9.1.19 to include a new onboarding process (for new users) and the newest wallet template which allows shoppers to select their payment method and shipping addresses from their Amazon profile.
    • CSV Export Improvements
      An improvement was made to the CSV export process in how the store handles the data being added to the resulting CSV. Instead of the data being queried on the database and returned all at once (which could cause issues with large exports), the data is queried first and then returned and converted into the CSV file in blocks. This reduces the amount of load on the database server and greatly reduces the chances of a large export to crash.
    • Phone Orders Customer Requirements
      Since it is used for the Quote Feature, phone orders no longer require full customer information. Instead you can start a phone order just by using the customer's email address and be able to proceed to the next steps. The store will not create a customer record (unless a password is entered), so if the order is used as a quote, the shopper will not have to log in to see the quote and checkout. (KB)

    • Images on Order History Download
      A new custom variable: [THUMBNAIL] is now available for use on the order-history-download.html template. By adding this variable to the template, the order history download will now include the Product Thumbnails associated with the products in the download file.

      We added AMP capabilities to the above pages. (KB)
      (Previously, AMP was only available on Product pages)

        Hi Pack Secure !

        To the best of my knowledge, everyone is on that version right now. However, please keep in mind that if a store has custom programming of some sort, those stores are usually skipped to prevent the updates from breaking any custom work that the site owner paid for. It's not just limited to paid for custom work, however. In some cases it might also be a custom hot fix applied to the store to correct a previous issue. The same basic rule applies. Those stores are usually skipped to prevent damage to whatever custom fix might have been done to it.

        Either way, we usually update stores in those situations on an "as requested" process. We consult with the developers to make sure the upgrade won't break something drastically and we go from there.

        If you have a TAM, reach out to them to get the process started.
        And if there's anyone reading this who doesn't have a TAM, regular support can help as well. They'll just create a ticket and start the process for you.

        Also remember you can always check which version you're on by clicking on your user name at the top right of the Online Store Manager, and your version will be listed at the bottom.

        Thanks for the post and I hope this helps!

          I'm seeing some new code for the category filters, which appears to be new. Do you have more info about this enhanced filters? Not seeing anything on the KB...

          HTML Code:
          <!--START: catFilterMainBlock_enhanced-->
          <div id="filtersEnhancedBlock">
          <!--START: catFilter_enhanced-->
          <div class="selected-filters-enhanced">
          <div class="container">
          <!--START: catFilterCrumb_enhanced-->
          <!--START: catFilterCrumbItem_enhanced-->
          <input type="hidden" name="hdnFilterCrumb-[id]" id="hdnFilterCrumb-[id]" value="[strFilter]" />
          <li><a href="#" onclick="javascript: setCatFilterEnhanced([id]);">[strfiltername]</a> <a class="crumb-item-remove-enhanced" href="#" onclick="javascript:removeCatFilterEnhanced([id]);">x</a></li>
          <!--END: catFilterCrumbItem_enhanced-->
          <!--END: catFilterCrumb_enhanced-->
          <!--START: catFilterRemoveLink_enhanced-->
          <div class="remove-filter-enhanced"><a href="#" onclick="javascript:window.location.href = window.location.href.split('?')[0];">[category_Header-RemoveFilters]</a></div>
          <!--END: catFilterRemoveLink_enhanced-->
          <div class="clear"></div>
          <!--END: catFilter_enhanced-->
          <!--START: catFilter_Filter_enhanced-->
          <div class="cat-filters-enhanced">
          <!--START: catFilter_Filter_Item_enhanced-->
          <li><a href="[catFilterLink]" [catFilterLinkRel]>[catFilterChildName] ([numItems])</a></li>
          <!--END: catFilter_Filter_Item_enhanced-->
          <!--END: catFilter_Filter_enhanced-->
          <input type="hidden" name="hdnCatFilterEnhancedEnabled" id="hdnCatFilterEnhancedEnabled" value="[hdnCatFilterEnhancedEnabled]" />
          <input type="hidden" name="hdnCatId" id="hdnCatId" value="[hdnCatId]" />

            Hi JoeBTI

            Good catch! Our developers are working on a new version of the category filters that should be released later this quarter. Thanks for the note!

                  Shift4Shop-Henry I am being told by 3dcart support that Lazy Image Loading has been pulled and not available. Can you confirm? I am on 10.0.1. Thanks!

                    Hi kbscoatings

                    My apologies for that... Yes, I'm afraid it is correct. I was advised of it today... The developers noticed that the code caused unforeseen issues with other aspects of the store so they temporarily removed it from the admin. I'm told that it is being fixed/reviewed for future re-release.

                    As soon as I hear it's back, I'll update everyone here.
