  • Fixed: SimpleImage.php not being detected
  • Added: Migrated Settings form to use options standard

Plugin update: Printable Invoices – 1.6.3

Hi WPER’ers, the 1.6.3 Plugin update adds support for customising the Pending Order: Payment Required e-mail (sent to the customer where the payment has not yet been processed, ala. Manual Order) as well as Admin Report/Purchase Report (customer and order details that is sent to the store owner). The new e-mail templates will only be enabled if ‘Replace WP e-Commerce Purchase Receipt’ is checked from the Settings > Printable Invoices screen.

We’ve also addressed an issue whereby file downloads were not checking the Sale Status.

Note: This is a major Plugin update for Printable Invoices and new options for Pending Order and Admin Report are available via Settings > Printable Invoices within the WordPress Administration.

We’re now moving focus to ensuring compatibility with the upcoming 3.8.9 release of WP e-Commerce which uses a new Purchase Log Notification Class which will not work with the current Printable Invoices. As mentioned on our recent Urgent update notice to Printable Invoices users (which will be followed up tomorrow with an e-mail to affected customers) we recommend postponing store updates to 3.8.9 until a minor Plugin update for Printable Invoices is released, as we do not know when the next WP e-Commerce release will be made we want to give you a heads up prior to making the jump.

As always download the latest Plugin update from Premium Plugin Updates and for more information visit the Plugin detail page for Printable Invoices.

Urgent update notice to Printable Invoices users

Hi WPER’ers, this is an urgent notice to existing Printable Invoices customers to postpone updating to WP e-Commerce 3.8.9 until our Plugin is compatible with the new Purchase Log Notification (WPSC_Purchase_Log_Notification) class introduced in this major WP e-Commerce update.

We’ll be releasing the 1.6.3 Plugin update for Printable Invoices in the next Blog post, this Plugin update is compatible with up to WP e-Commerce (not the 3.8.9 Beta), we hope to have our Printable Invoices update ready by launch of 3.8.9 and are seeking confirmation of an expected release date for this major WP e-Commerce update in order to meet this.

Plugin update: Printable Invoices – 1.5.8

Hi WPEC’ers, the 1.5.8 Plugin update includes a few feature requests (thanks Neil Sabharwal) to integrate Offline Credit Card Processing into the Printable Invoice template as well as add a new template element that displays the Purchase Method (e.g. Credit Card, PayPal Standard, Cheque, etc.).

Other changes in this Plugin release include another new template tag to display the Session ID for the Sale, the Store Address field now accepts multiple lines (e.g. Visser Labs, PO BOX 532, St Lucia South) as well as some GST tax presentation changes. 🙂

Plugin and Theme authors can use the provided hooks and filters to extend the Printable Invoice template. The Offline Credit Card integration now available makes use of these new filters.

As always, download your Plugin update from Premium Plugin Updates or jump over to the Plugin detail page for more information.

Plugin update: Printable Invoices – 1.5.5

The 1.5.5 release is an urgent minor Plugin update that resolves the ‘single paragraph’ issue affecting the Admin Report e-mail sent to the store owner on each successful Sale.

This was due to the Purchase Receipt being formatted to support HTML/rich-text while the Admin Report remains in plain-text, in a future Plugin update I will be adding this HTML support to include the Admin Report as well as Packing Slip and Tracking ID reminder, expect some major Plugin updates in the new year; perhaps even a re-branding of Printable Invoices (thanks Chris!).

As always, download your Plugin update from Premium Plugin Updates or jump over to the Plugin detail page for more information.

Plugin update: Printable Invoices – 1.4.7

The 1.4.7 minor update overhauls the header and footer logo support, this was needed as there were some environments where the correct directories (e.g. /uploads/wpsc/…/) were not being created.

The next Plugin update will add support for custom logo sizes as well as the ability to switch between cropped/uncropped oversized logo resizing. There’s a fix for tax support in there too, aiming for an end of week 1.4.8 release.

Visser Labs Plugin Compatibility with WordPress 3.0.2

A quick update that I’ve gone through and can confirm full-compatibility across the Visser Labs WP e-Commerce Plugin suite with WordPress 3.0.2, so what are you waiting for, start updating.

Note: As always, perform a full backup of your WP e-Commerce store – that means files and database – as it only takes a single corrupt file during transfer to knock out your daily earnings. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.

The 3.0.2 update is a mandatory security update for all previous WordPress versions which plugs a few Core vulnerabilities and miscellaneous fixes. The following Visser Labs Plugins have been tested with WordPress 3.0.2:

  • Product Categories Importer for WP e-Commerce
  • Product Importer Deluxe for WP e-Commerce
  • Product Importer Standard for WP e-Commerce
  • Product Versioning for WP e-Commerce
  • Store Reports for WP e-Commerce

Here’s a quick excerpt of the changes in 3.0.2 from the WordPress team.

  • Fix moderate security issue where a malicious Author-level user could gain further access to the site. (r16625)
  • Multisite: Fix the usage of the SUBDOMAIN_INSTALL constant for upgraded WordPress MU installs (#14536)

  • Minor XSS fixes in request_filesystem_credentials() and when deleting a plugin. (r16367, r16373)

  • Multisite: Fix the delete_user meta capability (r15562)
  • Multisite: Force current_user_can_for_blog() to run map_meta_cap() even for super admins (#15122)

Printable Invoices jumps to 1.2

A minor upgrade from 1.1 to include better support for foreign currency, here in Australia and New Zealand the dollar is the standard currency so it slipped my mind that customers in other countries would not be use this standard… this is all sorted now in 1.2

I’ll be making another release of this Plugin soon to include better templating support as well as a few features that have been suggested to me, for instance custom Invoice number. As always you can download the latest release from the Premium Plugin Updates page.

Order notes added to Printable Invoices

Just a quick update, order notes have been added to 1.1 of Printable Invoices.

Next update will include selectable options to control what store details appear in order invoices, as described in this Idea. As a side note, Product Importer Standard has been updated to 1.2 with support for Plugin update notifications.

Update: Migrating Add to Wishlist to a WordPress Plugin this long weekend, stay tuned.
