New Features

  • Page:
    Updated UI for Pay Account page — We've given the Pay Account page a mini-makeover. With a simplified workflow and no more confusing options, we hope you agree that it's a nice improvement on the previous version. Now, the user simply selects which invoice(s) they'd like to pay / reprint, and the 'Continue' button takes them to the next step. You know what they say - a change is as good as a holiday!
  • Page:
    Section menus with no sub-pages — Previously, the default behaviour for a section menu without any sub-pages was to hide the parent menu item. After user feedback, we've updated the functionality. Now, you can have a section menu heading with a hyperlink and no child items, and the hyperlinked parent item will still be rendered.
  • Page:
    Automatic image tagging for variants — Your master products can be automatically updated with their child images and tagged for image switching.

    This means that as you add a child product to a master in the CMS, as long as that child has an associated image, it will be copied across with the correct tags.
  • Page:
    Click & collect enhancement for availability calcs — A new setting ('Use Store Warehouse For Click And Collect Delivery') has been added to Click & Collect, allowing Delivery availability to be calculated on the user's selected store, rather than the default warehouse associated with their customer code.

    If you're interested in making use of this new function, please contact our Support Team.

  • Page:
    Image switching in list / grid view — From version 4.04 you can now view products in a list and have the image switch when a variant is selected. Previously, the image only changed when the product's detail page was being viewed.
  • Page:
    Owl Carousel upgrade — If you've been wishing for the ability to customise your Product image gallery, banner, campaign, or article slider... you're in luck! From version 4.05, your BPD website will automatically be upgraded to version 2 of the Owl Carousel.

    This means that transition effects, padding, and number of slider items (among other things), can all be configured right in the widget.

    See our Owl Carousel 2 article for more information.

  • Page:
    New widget for Consolidated Note Lines — A new widget has been created for the display of note lines in the order history screen. Previously, when note line consolidation was enabled (i.e. the same product on 2 order lines gets merged to 1 line), any user-entered notes against the products would display on a separate line and be slightly confusing to the viewer.

    Now, the 'Consolidated Note Line Description' widget can be added to the Search Order Result Lines Info template, allowing the note lines to be rendered with their relevant product, complete with consistent website styling.

  • Page:
    New Lucene Search option to remove plurals — A new option has been added to the Lucene search function within BPD, allowing for the removal of plurals from search terms. This means that a search for "microphone stands", for example, becomes a search for "microphone stand". Removing plurals will generally yield more complete search results for the end user.

    As this new setting ('AllowPluralsRemovalForSingleSearch') is currently only accessible via the database, please contact us if you'd like to enable it.

 

 

Fixes

  • Page:
    Article list max number setting — The Article List Widget allows you to set the max number of articles to be displayed on the page. In some versions, this option wasn't being obeyed and all articles were showing, regardless of the setting. Never fear - we've sorted this out and the 'Max Number of Articles' widget option is now getting the respect it deserves.
  • Page:
    Fix for % discount promos — The promo scenario "When I buy X quantity of specific products then I get a Y% discount on those products" grants users a discount on products if they meet the minimum quantity requirement. However, sometimes orders that met the qty threshold but had eligible products spread out over multiple lines didn't permit the promo code to be applied. This issue has now been fixed.
  • Page:
    Freight error message display — In some scenarios, users were seeing a 'Please select a freight option' when they edited their delivery address at checkout. This was being triggered incorrectly and has now been fixed.
  • Page:
    Pickup instructions not saving correctly — A recent update to the checkout workflow was causing some B2B users to find their Pickup Instructions not saving correctly. This issue has now been resolved and no further pickup instructions will be harmed in the making of B2B orders.
  • Page:
    Printing large orders — We recently identified an issue with printing large orders, either from the cart or the order confirmation page. It seems the system was only displaying as many lines as the user had set in their 'default records per page' preference. Oops. This has now been fixed and your users are free to print their entire order, no matter the size.
