Version 1.3.4 has just been released and has a lot of very important updates, including a few new features that everyone will appreciate.

Payment History Search

It is a feature that should have been included since day one, but the ability to search the payment history is finally available. The search system is quite powerful and will allow you to search for payments in a variety of ways:

  • Search for all payments connected to a particular user by entering the user ID
  • Search for all payments connected to a particular user by entering the user’s email
  • Search for all payments connected to a particular user by entering the user’s name
  • Search for specific payments by entering the purchase key

This makes it much easier to locate past payments when you need to update a customer’s order, delete a particular purchase, refund a purchase, etc.

Improved Category and Tag Filtering for Product Grid

The [downloads] short code now accepts two additional parameters:

  • exclude_category – Used to prevent products in one or more categories from showing.
  • exclude_tags – Used to prevent products with one or more specific tags from showing.

Take a look at the short code documentation for more instructions on how to use these parameters.

Prices Shown on Purchase Buttons

The [purchase_link] short code now has an additional parameter called price that allows you to automatically show the product price on the purchase button. This defaults to on.

There were other changes as well, so here is the complete list:

  • Added new option for defining the emails that receive admin sale notifications

    I just installed the update, and my “Add To Cart” buttons just changed to “$0.99 – Add To Cart” buttons.. How do i fix this so that it goes back to only saying “Add To Cart”??

    1. Pippin Williamson

      How are you displaying the purchase button? Withe the purchase_link short code? The [downloads] product grid? Or just the automatic purchase button display?

      1. Pippin Williamson

        The code i use for the button looks like that

        [purchase_link id="180" style="text link" color="" text="Add To Cart"]

        It used to just say “Add To Cart”

        Now it says “$0.99 – Add To Cart”

        I want it to ONLY say “Add To Cart”

        Help my new found frustration
