New Shopp 1.3.10 released fixes WordPress 4.4 compatibility + more

Update shopp pluginA new version of the WordPress e-commerce platform Shopp was just released! Go get it while it’s hot! Or if you’re like me, wait a week to see if any major issues surface before hitting the update button on your important e-commerce sites. After all it’s Christmas time and you wouldn’t want to break your cart this time of year?

Even though this release from the Shopp dev team was just meant as a emergency fix for the WordPress 4.4 incompatibility issue, some important fixes in the pipe also got into this release. The bonus fixes are for issues with caching, session handling and IPN responses as well as the following bug reports #3301, #3413 and #3308.

Thanks to the Shopp dev team for another great release!

Shopp and WordPress 3.7

UPDATE! There is now a fix for the issue with Shopp and WordPress 3.7. Drop the following code into your theme’s functions.php file:[code type=php]
add_action(‘shopp_storefront_init’, ‘shopp_storefront_wp37_compat’);

function shopp_storefront_wp37_compat() {
add_filter(‘archive_template’, array(ShoppStorefront(), ‘pages’));
}
[/code]

Do not upgrade to the latest version of WordPress if you’re using Shopp. If you do, the storefront URL breaks. WordPress 3.7 was released yesterday and the Shopp developers are on the task of fixing the issues.

If you already upgraded WordPress you can downgrade it to make your Shopp work again.

7 easy steps to downgrade WordPress

  1. Make a complete backup using Backupbuddy or similar.
  2. Get the older WordPress version. Or get WordPress 3.6.1 without wp-content folder so you don’t accidentally overwrite any customizations to the default themes.
  3. Go to plugins and deactivate all plugins.
  4. Log out your WordPress user.
  5. Delete wp-admin and wp-includes folder. (DO NOT DELETE /wp-content folder!)
  6. Copy all the WordPress files and folders except wp-content from the older WordPress version. Do not copy wp-content folder.
  7. Login to your WordPress dashboard and click on “Update WordPress Database”.

You have now successfully downgraded WordPress. You should now see “You are using WordPress 3.6.1”.

Shopp and WordPress 3.6

UPDATE2! There is now a Shopp 1.2.9 release which fixes the issues with the new WordPress 3.6 release.

UPDATE! There is now a fix for the issue with Shopp and WordPress 3.6. Change the following code in the file wp-cotent/plugins/shopp/core/ui/behaviors/suggest.js:[code type=javascript]
– $results = $(”).appendTo(document);
+ $results = $(”).appendTo(‘body’);
[/code]
Remove the code with – infront and add the code with + infront. This fixes all issues with broken JS in Shopp due to the new JS environment in WordPress 3.6.

Do not upgrade to the latest version of WordPress if you’re using Shopp. There are some issues with editing products and promotions. This is to be expected as WordPress 3.6 includes an updated jQuery at version 1.10. Shopp is far from the only plugin affected by this. The Shopp developers are working on a resolution.

If you already upgraded WordPress you can downgrade it to make your Shopp work again.
