WordPress 4.4 breaks Shopp [Fixed!]

WordPress 4.4 with Shopp1.3.9Do not upgrade to WordPress 4.4 at this time if you’re using Shopp! You will get fatal errors when trying to use the Shopp backend. The Shopp dev team are working fixing this issue and Shopp 1.3.10 will be released shortly.

If you accidentaly upgraded to WordPress 4.4 you can downgrade it to 4.3.1.

  1. Backup your whole site, database + files to be on the safe side, I always use BackupBuddy for this task.
  2. Download WP 4.3.1 from WP release archive.
  3. Unzip it.
  4. Upload all files replacing the current files on your server.
  5. Check that everything works as expected.

See the announcement of Shopp 1.3.3.

My personal favourites among the fixes are that the order exporting is now fixed and the image quality and sharpness setting issues is resolved.

If you need help upgrading Shopp to the latest version you’re welcome to get my upgrade offering. This can save you a lot of time if things go wrong. Especially if you’re upgrading from an older version of Shopp where you will need to manually edit the shopp template files to take advantage of the new features in Shopp or sometimes even to get it to work at all.
