GD Products Center Pro 0.9 Beta

GD Products Center 0.9 Beta is here, bringing many changes and new features. Plugin has improved templates manager, improved products and taxonomies panels, updates to gdr2 and gdT3 libraries, improved rendering templates, several bugs fixed and much more.

Warning: Plugin is not yet completed, and it is not recommended to use it on the live websites. Right now, from all the planned features for 1.0.0 release, admin side is 90% done, and front end is 90% done.

Products Types Grid
Products Types Grid

On image above you can see improved products types grid. Both this one and taxonomies grid are updated. Templates panel now lists in more detail all available templates. Each type of template is displayed as a tab. For future 1.1.0 release I plan to add editor for each template from this panel.

New widget is added for rendering list of products. You can limit and filter products to display, similar to single product widget from before. Also, if you need to embed product info into your blog posts or some other unrelated pages, you can use new shortcode: gdpc_product, details and use are in the documentation.

As for other changes, there are number of small improvements, several bugs fixed (deleting taxonomy and product types selection in the widget), updated gdr2 and gdT3 libraries. Also, code handling custom rewrite rules is improved further. I have added functions that can be used to debug WordPress rewrite rules resolving and list of registered rewrite rules. These functions are in the Central Documentation.

There will be one more beta (0.9.5) before final, and that one will be used to finalize all templates and fix bugs. This major beta is expected in about 7 to 10 days, final should be out before the end of this month. Please report any bugs found, I am sure that more are there. I am testing plugin with different themes, but I might be missing things.

  1. Is there any “import” feature so I can bulk add multiple products? Maybe some API for that? Or are you considering this feature?

    • I am still considering how to do it, but there will be import. I will try to push it into 1.0, if not it will remain for future versions.

      Please wait...
      • That would be great if you could implement it into 1.0! I already found use for this plugin in 3 my future projects – it has great features. Thanks for all your work on your plugins.

        Please wait...
