3.20.0

Changed

Fixed

  • Fixed Google SiteKit plugin breaking Settings page.

3.19.0

Added

  • Added version numbers to templates. Diagnostics panel will now check major versions of overridden files.
  • Support for Flatsome theme added starting with version 3.10.1 of the theme.
  • Added filter to Cart_Mapper map (PR #201).

Changed

  • Added some additional refined style adjustments to the WordPress Twenty-Twenty theme.
  • Made a change to the onboarding page for connecting your channel. Form sections now start open so you can edit all fields immediately.
  • Both enabled site ssl and Sitewide HTTPS setting in BC store are required to use embedded checkout.

Added

  • Added controls to the theme customizer to edit product category and brand taxonomy slugs.
  • Added Customizer option to control image size output for image gallery and the featured image component.
    • Modifications were made to the product-gallery.php and product-featured-image.php templates to accommodate these new changes. Update your template overrides accordingly.
    • Styles updates were also adjusted to accommodate this new image size by adding a new body class: .bc-gallery-size-bc-xmedium
  • Added Customizer option to allow the user to apply a zoom-on-hover interaction for main gallery images on the product detail page.
    • Modifications were made to the product-gallery.php template to accommodate these new changes. Update your template overrides accordingly.

Changed

  • Modified the names of the cart cookies for better compatibility with server/host restrictions. (i.e. Some hosts would remove BC cookies because they lacked a wp- prefix)
  • Better error handling around 0 qty field entries on cart items. The ajax response would leave the 0 in the field but would continue to show the previous price value. Entering 0 does not delete an item from your cart so we’ve updated this to return the field value to its previous value.

3.16.0

Changed

  • Removed the notification to finish setting up shipping methods. So long as at least one shipping zone exists (and it will always exist), the notification will not be displayed.

3.13.0

Added

  • Added category and product view limitations to customers that are members of a group with product category visibility limitations.
  • Added a filter to modify the cache time of user group category visibility. bigcommerce/product_category/group_filter_terms_user_cache_time accepts a value, in seconds, for how long to cache the local list of terms by user.
  • Added a new tab to the Resources section in the plugin admin area. The new section, Tutorials, contains video tutorial links from BigCommerce’s YouTube channel.

Changed

  • Added a feature that scrolls the browser to the top of the embedded checkout iframe upon completion of the order. This resolves an issue on smaller screens where the window would be stuck at the bottom of the page.

3.12.0

Added

  • Added the ability to sort products arbitrarily in the products shortcode. By setting the sort parameter to post__in, the order of the IDs in the id parameter will be maintained in the query results.
  • Added body classes to front end templates with product ID and availabilty, and flags for sale, out of stock, and low inventory products.

Changed

  • The import progress bar will also appear at the top of the final onboarding screen if an import is in progress.
  • Redesigned the final onboarding page to list the next steps to configure the merchant’s BigCommerce store. This final page will appear in the admin menu as “Launch Steps” until all required steps have been completed.

Fixed

  • Fixed an undefined variable in the product update webhook handler
  • Fixed the product review form handler to respect the value of the bigcommerce/product/reviews/show_form filter that is used when displaying the form.
  • Changed the default value for bigcommerce/gift_certificates/theme to general. The previous value resulted in gift certificate reciepients to receive an email with no gift certificate template attached.

3.11.0

Changed

  • Onboarding Screen modifications:
    • When submitting the new account form, a loading spinner and message appear letting you know we’re working on creating your account.
    • The email confirmation notice upon creating a new account is now more visible.
    • On the Channel Selection screen, a new notice was added altering the user to the alternate configuration needed for WordPress multisite setup.
  • The first channel will be automatically created when registering a new account via the WordPress plugin. This store will be configured to automatically add new products to that channel. Additional channels may still be created from the settings screen when multi-channel mode is enabled.
  • The item count badge on the cart menu item will be enabled when either embedded checkout or the mini-cart is enbled. The item count will be included in the mini-cart ajax request and used to update the item count cookie.
  • With the release of WordPress 5.3, there were several updates to accessibility in the WP admin including form fields, color contrast, and attribute updates. We’ve done the same with our plugin and increased AA compliance throughout the plugin, including onboarding screens, settings pages, and Product UI.

3.10.0

Added

  • Added an option to enable the mini-cart to the nav menu onboarding screen.
  • Added support videos to onboarding screens.

Changed

  • Changed product videos to use oEmbed instead of the YouTube API, thereby supporting IE11.

Fixed

  • Handled an inconsistency in Channels and Catalog API responses to ensure that deleted products are removed from WordPress.
  • Removed erroneous override of product shortcode/block sorting when a sorting argument is explicitly given.
  • Updated BigCommerce API client to version 2.0.3 to handle product option sort order.

Deprecated

  • Product gallery template overrides based off of the short-lived 3.9.0 template should continue to function, but should be updated for compatibility with future versions. Templates depending on the YouTube API are deprecated.

3.9.0

Added

  • Added the retail price to the product price template. The retail price will only display when it is set on the product in the BigCommerce admin.
  • Added support for product videos in the product gallery section. The videos will always be YouTube videos. We’ve implemented the YouTube Player API to assist with play and pause features when switching between multiple videos.
    • There is a known issue with this YT Player API on IE 11 and videos are currently not playing in that browser. This will be addressed in the next release.

Changed

  • DELETE requests to the WP REST API are now camouflaged as POST requests to work around web hosts that do not allow standard HTTP methods.

Fixed

  • Fixed the missing “Cart” section in the theme customizer when visiting the customizer before first saving any settings in the plugin admin.

3.8.1

Changed

  • Updated embedded checkout SDK to version 1.37.1 to better handle failures from the cart handover.

3.8.0

Added

  • Created a mini-cart template. There are two ways to display the mini-cart. (1) Use a widget to display the mini-cart in a registered sidebar area. (2) Activate the toggle in the theme customizer to display the mini-cart when the cart nav menu icon is clicked. The contents of the mini-cart will be loaded asynchronously to avoid deleterious effects on page caching plugins. The mini-cart has its own set of templates that can be customized independently of the full cart templates.
  • Added two more WooCommerce function stubs for compatibility with some themes: wc_get_cart_url() and wc_get_checkout_url(). Each will point to the corresponding BigCommerce page for cart or checkout. Props to @mark-netalico.

Fixed

  • Removed an erroneous error message that displayed when updating from version 3.5 or earlier. If the site’s currency matches the store’s default currency, no error message should display that says the currency is disabled.

Changed

  • If a product variant has an image, and that variant is purchased, the order history page will display that variant’s image instead of the default product image.
  • Clarified 3.6.0 changelog entry regarding assignment of currencies to channels.

3.7.0

Added

  • When using the WordPress password reset form or updated a user’s password from the WordPress admin, the new password will be synchronized with the BigCommerce customer account for users who’s accounts are configured to sync with BigCommerce.
  • Added an endpoint to handle abandoned cart recovery. Visitors who abandon their carts will receive an email with a link that includes a token to recover the cart. On clicking the link, the cart will be restored in the user’s new browser session.
  • Added new route configurations to point BigCommerce-generated links to pages on the WordPress site:
    • create_account points to the user registration page
    • forgot_password points to the lost password page
    • account_order_status points to the order history page
    • account_new_return points to the shipping & returns page
    • recover_abandoned_cart points to the cart recovery endpoint

Changed

  • If a user account is configured to sync with BigCommerce but the customer ID user meta is missing (as may happen if the BigCommerce plugin has been uninstalled and reinstalled), a matching customer account may be found by email and used for password validation.

3.6.0

Added

  • Added currency selection to the settings screen. Any currencies enabled in the BigCommerce admin are available to assign as the currency for the WordPress site. When in multi-channel mode, a different currency can be assigned to each channel.
  • Added support for custom SEO titles and descriptions. The SEO title set in the BigCommerce admin will override the HTML title tag for the product single. The SEO description set in the BigCommerce admin will be used to render a meta description tag in the page header. Note: If using Yoast SEO, custom descriptions set in the Yoast meta box will lead to a duplicate meta tag. To remove the tag from this plugin, add the following snipped to a theme or plugin:
    add_action( 'plugins_loaded', function() {
    	remove_action( 'wp_head', bigcommerce()->post_types->product_page_meta_description, 0 );
    }, 100, 0 );
    
  • Added support for custom image alt text. The alt text set in the BigCommerce admin will be imported into WordPress, where WordPress’s standard image rendering functions will use it as the value for the alt attribute.
  • Added a new global JS function to the bigcommerce_config global JS object. You can now retrieve the current user’s cart ID via JS using bigcommerce_config.cart.getCartID();

Fixed

  • Fixed several locations where “bigcommerce” was misspelled as “bigcomerce” in text domains, HTML classes, and filter names.

Changed

  • On uninstall of the plugin, pages related to the plugin will have “-uninstalled” appended to their slugs when they are set to draft. If the plugin is reinstalled later and these pages still exist, they will be republished and “-uninstalled” will be removed from the slugs.
  • If a product variant has an image, and that variant is added to the cart, the cart page will display that variant’s image instead of the default product image.

Removed

  • Currency formatting settings have been removed. Formatting settings are pulled from the BigCommerce currencies API. PHP’s intl extension will still be used for formatting if it is available.

3.5.0

Added

  • Product pick lists will include a “None” option if that modifier field is not required.
  • Added filters to modify the price range and calculated price range of a product. bigcommerce/product/price_range/data affects the data that feeds both. The formatted output can be modified with the filters bigcommerce/product/price_range/formatted and bigcommerce/product/calculated_price_range/formatted
  • Added hooks to the initialization of the product importer. Use bigcommerce/import/task_list to modify the list of tasks for the import. Use bigcommerce/import/task_manager/init to perform additional setup actions on the task manager (e.g., register more tasks).
  • Added a control to the theme customizer to toggle display of product inventory. Inventory can be shown for all products that track inventory, or only for products with low inventory. Inventory display is filterable per product using the hook bigcommerce/product/inventory/should_display.
  • Added a webhook to listen for completed checkouts. The webhook will trigger the action bigcommerce/webhooks/checkout_complete.
  • Added support for a omitting products from initial Pricing API calls if they have a .preinitialized class added to the pricing DOM node. This will allow 3rd party plugins/themes to add this CSS class based on their needs/conditions.
  • Added a toggle in the theme customizer to control display of default pricing while waiting for Pricing API responses.

Fixed

  • Fixed the destination URLs for webhooks, which were missing a path component.
  • Fixed display of error messaging when attempting to log in with an invalid user name.
  • When running in multi-channel mode, removing a product from one channel could remove its images that were shared with the same product in another channel. The images will now stay in place and have their parent post adjusted to the surviving product.

Changed

  • The template components/products/product-price.php has two new variables available: $price_range and $calculated_price_range. This allows filtering of those values beyond what was previously possible. Existing templates will continue to work with values pulled from the product on render.
  • The template components/products/product-price.php has a new variable, $visible, to use in place of the bc-product__pricing--visible class. This controls whether default pricing can be displayed.
  • Default sorting of the Product post type archive and taxonomy archives has been changed from “Title A-Z” to “Featured”. This can be changed using the bigcommerce/query/default_sort filter.
  • “Featured” sorting now considers the Product’s sort order, as set in the BigCommerce admin. Featured items will appear first, followed by all other items sorted by sort order. If the sort order for a product is not set, it is treated as a 10.
  • The template components/products/inventory-level.php has two new variables available: $status and $label. This simplifies the template, while enabling additional filtering of the values. Existing templates overrides will continue to work with values pulled from the product on render.
  • If embedded checkout is disabled, the current customer’s cart count will not display on the cart menu item. The behavior is filterable with the bigcommerce/cart/menu/show_count hook.
  • Pricing API requests for unauthenticated users will use null as the customer group ID, which uses the default guest group, instead of 0, which uses no group.
  • When selecting options and modifiers for a product, we’re no longer debouncing the clicks and then disabling the fields while a Pricing API call is made. Fields remain enabled, and changes will cause previous Pricing API calls that might be pending to abort.

Deprecated

  • The unused constants \BigCommerce\Cart\Add_To_Cart::CART_COOKIE and \BigCommerce\Cart\Add_To_Cart::COUNT_COOKIE are deprecated and will be removed in a future version.

Removed

  • The filter bigcommerce/template/product/archive/default_sort has been removed. Use bigcommerce/query/default_sort instead.

3.4.1

Fixed

  • The Pricing API request cache did not properly differentiate based on request parameters, sometimes leading to incorrect prices displaying.

3.4.0

Added

  • Created a filter, bigcommerce/api/ttl, to control the TTL of the API response cache. Caches now default to one hour, but can be overridden per request. Requests to the pricing API no longer force a cache flush.
  • Added support for sort order on product modifiers. The order will be imported from BigCommerce and respected when rendering the product form.
  • Added a step to the import process to delete categories and brands that were deleted in BigCommerce. This also resolves the issue of a re-created category getting a numeric suffix on the slug when the new term is created.
  • Wish Lists
    • BigCommerce Wish Lists are now part of user accounts.
    • You can create, edit and delete a Wish List as well as add and remove items.
    • You and make your list public or private. Private lists cannot be shared and can only be seen by the list owner.
    • Shared Wish Lists are presented as a filtered version of the main product archive.
    • Deleting a Wish List cannot be undone. You will be given a confirmation screen before deleting.
    • Wish Lists are currently product ID based and not quantity based. Attempting to add the same product to your list will not increase the quantity nor will it duplicate the product in your list. Only one instance of a product variant is allowed in a Wish List.

Fixed

  • Product categories and brands will now derive their slugs from the “Custom URL” property set in the BigCommerce admin. If a category name changes, the WordPress term slug will update to reflect the new name.
  • Gutenberg blocks were not able to utilize the drag-and-drop feature due to a conflict with a JS library. This lib has been upgraded and drag-and-drop functionality has been restored.
  • Products options and modifiers that contained only a single option would cause the Cart/Buy button to be disabled permanently. This has been been fixed.
  • The user meta key bigcommerce_nav_settings_initialized was not correctly removed when running the plugin uninstaller. This has been fixed.
  • Removed the product condition from cart and order history when the product is not configured to display its condition.
  • Disabled WordPress’s kses filters when storing data in the import queue. This fixes mangled HTML in some circumstances. Post content is still filtered later in the import.
  • Upgraded Lodash JS library dependency to the latest version.

Changed

  • Refinery template (components/catalog/refinery.php) has removed the wrapper element in favor of the Controller variables. Update your template as needed.
  • The Gutenberg Product Component Block now has admin previews that contain rendered HTML product content for all component types. When a product ID is not found or is no longer valid, a default message will display letting you know the product is unavailable on the admin side and the theme side.

Deprecated

  • API factory methods for building widget-related clients are deprecated. Calls to Api_Factory::placement(), Api_Factory::themeRegions(), and Api_Factory::widgetTemplate() should be replaced with Api_Factory::widget(). These methods will be removed in a future version.

3.3.0

Changed

  • HTML elements can now be used in all text string filters so long as it passes the same wp_kses rules used on comments. Previously, HTML inserted via filters for text strings was omitted in certain cases. For instance, on the ajax add to cart message.

3.2.0

Added

  • Display variant images in the product gallery. Once a specific variant is selected, its image will be used as the primary gallery image.
  • Added stack traces to the error log when exceptions are thrown during the import process
  • Added a screen at the end of the onboarding process to guide merchants to their next steps.
  • Added support for pre-order and non-purchaseable product availability settings. Includes two new theme customizer fields to control the text for the “Add to Cart”/“Buy Now” buttons when displaying pre-order products.
  • Added support for products with hidden prices. They will use the new template components/products/product-hidden-price.php to not show the price.
  • Added a new option for the Product Components block/shortcode for Add To Cart. This will output the Add to Cart/Buy Now button and form on any page, including variants if applicable. Example Usage: [bc-component id="431" type="add_to_cart"]
  • Added a new Channel Select field in the product picker UI in the WP Admin. You can now search for products from any channel you’ve connected to your WP Store. Selecting a channel will initiate a new query immediately and subsequently only produce product search results from that channel.

Fixed

  • Fixed import of product descriptions containing HTML links. WordPress core was adding noopener attributes prematurely, breaking the JSON data stored in the queue.
  • Fixed a fatal error when updating to version 3.0+ from 2.2.1 or earlier while a product import is in progress.

Changed

  • Pass through custom error messages from the API when Add to Cart fails. Previously we were returning null and using a generic message. We’re still using the generic message but only when a more specific message is not available from the API.
  • The template components/products/product-gallery.php has changed to accommodate variant images.
  • The template components/products/product-form.php has a new variable $message containing the pre-order message to display for the product.
  • The bigcommerce/customer/group_id filter will be called from \BigCommerce\Accounts\Customer::get_group_id(), even when the current user is logged out or does not have a customer ID.

3.1.0

Added

  • Added a button to reset channel listing overrides, enabling editors to reconnect a product to the base product for future updates.
  • Added a button to immediately re-sync a product. Editors can import the latest changes from the BigCommerce API for that product without running a full import on the entire catalog.
  • Added a missing entry to the 3.0.0 changelog regarding fixing the uninstaller.
  • Added a method to fetch customer group info. $customer->get_group()->get_info()
  • Created an option to toggle synchronization of analytics settings.
  • Added a customizer option to disable Quick View on product cards. When disabled, product card images are wrapped in a link to the product single.
  • Added a template for the sku component of a product, components/products/product-sku.php.
  • Added a new shortcode/block that allows selection of distinct product components. Example usage: [bc-component type="description" id="117"]. Valid types are: sku, description, image, title.
  • Added an option to disable sync of analytics IDs.

Fixed

  • Fixed missing markup for AMP templates. Some valid tags had been erroneously stripped out.

Changed

  • Added a new parameter to the product title template (components/products/product-title.php) to set the header level. It should set the header appropriately for the context in which the component is loaded (h1 for the product single, h2 for the shortcode/block single, and h3 for the product card).
  • Moved the Quick View markup from components/products/product-card.php to a new template, components/products/quick-view-image.php.
  • Removed the wrapper div from the template components/products/product-quick-view.php. The wrapper will be added by the template controller.
  • Changed the assign_terms capability for categories and brands to do_not_allow. Assignments would be overwritten by the next import. This keeps it from happening in the first place to avoid confusion.
  • Turned off the autocomplete attribute on API fields in the settings page. This will help to avoid an issue where autocomplete causes a change to user credentials and causes the store to disconnect when settings are saved.
  • Updated the product quick view template, components/products/product-quick-view.php, uses the new product sku component.
  • Updated the product shortcode single template, components/products/product-shortcode-single.php, uses the new product sku component.
  • Updated the product single template, components/products/product-single.php, uses the new product sku component.
  • Updated the onboarding flow to indicate where the user is in the setup process. Additionally, some styles were updated on the content areas, buttons, and start-over feature.
  • Optimized the import process to avoid fetching data for products not listed in any active channels.

Deprecated

  • Deprecated the $quickview and $attributes variables in the template components/products/product-card.php. The variables are now empty, and will be removed in a future version.

3.0.2

Fixed

  • Updated API client library to 1.12.1 to fix error in class definition for PriceRecord.

3.0.1

Fixed

  • Fixed duplicate posts created in WordPress when importing products in draft or pending status.

3.0.0

Added

  • Added support for connecting to multiple BigCommerce channels. Since the plugin can’t know the particular use case a store has for using multiple channels, we provide the base framework for site developers to extend in a way that makes sense for their business. Multi-channel support requires opt-in using a filter:
    add_filter( 'bigcommerce/channels/enable-multi-channel', '__return_true' );
    
    This will enable an admin to connect to multiple channels on the settings screen. The primary channel will still be used for all front-end requests unless filtered to use a different channel. Example:
    add_filter( 'bigcommerce/channel/current', function( $channel ) {
      // do some logic here to determine what channel to use
      return get_term( 697, \BigCommerce\Taxonomies\Channel\Channel::NAME );
    });
    
  • Created a taxonomy for storing channels. Most stores will only have one, but a store with multi-channel enabled may have many. The taxonomy’s UI is hidden, and it is only exposed during onboarding (when selecting the initial channel) and in the Channel Settings section when multi-channel is enabled. All products are associated with a channel term on import.

Changed

  • Updated the position and design of the start-over button and confirmation message for the on-boarding process.
  • Fixed display of tax and total price in order history when an order was paid for entirely with store credit. It should no longer show a negative subtotal, and the grand total should properly display as $0.00 (formatted appropriately for the local currency).
  • Currency can now be filtered at any point in the request. Previously, the currency would be locked in place when creating the formatter in the Currency service provider. The service provider will now use a factory method to return a formatter based on the current, possibly filtered, value of the \BigCommerce\Settings\Sections\Currency::CURRENCY_CODE option. Use the pre_option_bigcommerce_currency_code filter to adjust the currency in use at any given point in the request.
  • The import process has changed to more efficiently support imports when connected to multiple channels. After fetching listings for each channel, products will be fetched from the Catalog API once. When fetching products in bulk, we now also fetch options and modifiers, taking advantage of new capabilities of the API. This limits the bulk import to 10 products per request, but saves two additional queries per product later in the import. The tasks to fetch listings and initialize channels now have a suffix of the channel ID on the string used to trigger the task status.
  • The import queue is now stored as hidden posts in the wp_posts table, using the post type bigcommerce_task.
  • Method signature for the \BigCommerce\Import\Importers\Products\Product_Builder constructor has changed. It now expects a \WP_Term representing the channel the product belongs to.
  • Method signature for the \BigCommerce\Import\Importers\Products\Product_Importer constructor has changed. It now expects a \WP_Term representing the channel the product belongs to instead of a channel ID and an instance of the Channels API.
  • Method signature for the \BigCommerce\Import\Importers\Products\Product_Saver constructor has changed. It now expects a \WP_Term representing the channel the product belongs to.
  • The order of operations in \BigCommerce\Import\Importers\Products\Product_Saver has changed to assign terms to a product before setting its post data or post meta. This is to support multiple products with the same slug but in different channels.
  • Method signature for the \BigCommerce\Import\Importers\Products\Product_Strategy_Factory constructor has changed. It now expects a \WP_Term representing the channel the product belongs to.
  • Product price ranges are now calculated on import and stored in post meta rather than relying on values from the bc_variants table on render.
  • Moved \BigCommerce\Import\Review_Builder to \BigCommerce\Import\Importers\Reviews\Review_Builder.
  • Moved \BigCommerce\Import\Review_Fetcher to \BigCommerce\Import\Importers\Reviews\Review_Fetcher.
  • Method signature for the \BigCommerce\Import\Processors\Channel_Initializer constructor has changed. It now expects a \WP_Term representing the channel to initialize.
  • Renamed \BigCommerce\Import\Processors\Listing_ID_Fetcher to \BigCommerce\Import\Processors\Listing_Fetcher and changed its constructor signature to require a \WP_Term representing the channel for the listings.
  • Renamed \BigCommerce\Import\Processors\Product_ID_Fetcher to \BigCommerce\Import\Processors\Product_Data_Fetcher.
  • Changed the method signature for the \BigCommerce\Import\Processors\Queue_Runner constructor. It no longer requires an instance of the Channels API.
  • Moved \BigCommerce\Merchant\Routes to \BigCommerce\Taxonomies\Channels\Routes

Fixed

  • Updated registration of block editor plugins to work with recent versions of Gutenberg.
  • Fixed fatal error in the uninstaller from an undefined class constant.

Removed

  • Removed the bc_products table. All queries that used this table have been updated to use post meta.
  • Removed the bc_variants table. All queries that used this table have been updated to use post meta.
  • Removed the bc_import_queue table. All import tasks have been moved to the wp_posts table.
  • Removed the bigcommerce/pricing/channel_id filter. The pricing API request will now derive the value from the current channel.
  • Removed the bigcommerce/pricing/currency_code filter. The pricing API request will now derive the value from the bigcommerce_currency_code option.

Deprecated

  • The post_id field in the bc_reviews table is no longer used and will be removed in a future release.

2.2.1

Changed

  • Updated the way cached pricing works while requesting new data from the Pricing API. We’re now displaying the cached pricing first. We’ve also removed the spinner while loading pricing data and replaced with a simple fade in/out of prices.

2.2.0

Added

  • Added a redirect to the Welcome/Settings screen on plugin activation

Changed

  • Updated the BigCommerce Checkout SDK to version 1.18.10

Fixed

  • Fixed a layout issue on the WP Admin BigCommerce Resources page where resource cards were misaligned.
  • Fixed AMP validation errors from improperly included scripts. Thanks, @westonruter!

2.1.0

Added

  • Uses the new BigCommerce pricing API to retrieve more accurate pricing data based on selected product variants, options, and customer groups. The original price display feature still exists and is now the fallback if unable to fetch live pricing.
  • Added a setting to determine whether prices should display with tax included or excluded. This duplicates a setting from the BigCommerce admin that is not available via the Store API.
