—  September 13, 2019The Retailer 3.0 is a major theme update that bring various new features as well as considerable improvement on existing ones.

Before updating:

  1. Since it brings lots of changes, it would be best to test it on a staging site first before going live. If you don’t have a staging site yet, it’s the best time to put one in place. Many hosting companies offer staging sites as a built-in feature. Reach out to your hosting company and ask if they offer this feature, or use a the WP Staging plugin to create one.
  2. Make sure to update The Retailer Extender plugin as well after updating the theme. Can be done via Appearance > Install Plugins.
  3. A few old page templates were deprecated and shortcodes were deprecated. In case your site was still using one of those features and they seem broken after the update, you can install The Retailer Deprecated plugin to get them back. It can be found under Appearance > Install Plugins.

We’re happy to announce a new theme update. Version 2.2.4 was released to ensure compatibility with the latest version of WooCommerce 2.3 codename Happy Hippo released on the same day.

What should I know about this update?

Just make sure both WooCommerce and the theme are updated together. 

What’s new in WooCommerce 2.3?

We named this release Handsome Hippo because we wanted to dedicate it to making WooCommerce easier to use. That means moving admin settings around, making the cart page more intuitive, updating the default email styles, and a whole lot more.
