CS-Cart & Multi-Vendor 4.2.3 Released

By dshmanatova, October 16th, 2014 in CS-Cart releases, News and announcements

Hello,

Today, we are glad to announce the new release of our CS-Cart and Multi-Vendor software.

version_4.2.3_autumn

In this minor release, we want to present you with several features to improve your store. Among them, we would like to mention the following:

  • Grids in layouts (Design → Layouts) have become more flexible. To change their position now, simply drag-and-drop them!
  • Two brand new storefront styles: Brightness and MTronX.
  • 4.2.3_new_styles

  • In the admin panel you will see a new button called Edit Content On-Site (Design → Themes). It allows store admins to edit store content (e.g., product names, prices, descriptions, button names, and many other visible elements) right in the storefront, which is fast and quite convenient!

4.2.3_editor

  • Now your customers can log in to CS-Cart stores with their PayPal accounts, thanks to the improved Social Login add-on. Logging in with a PayPal account enables the so-called Seamless Checkout feature; after a customer logs in to the store with their PayPal account, they don’t have to log in to the PayPal website again to make a PayPal payment.
  • Another good thing in this release is a new Call Requests add-on that can simplify and speed up the process of ordering. It adds a Buy Now With 1-Click button on a product details page in the storefront. When a customer clicks the button, a popup window with a short contact form appears. As a store admin, you will see the list of call requests in the admin panel (Orders → Call requests) with detailed information about each request.

4.2.3_buy_one_click

The full list of changes is available in the changelog.

Upgrade

Store owners will see the update in the Upgrade Center in their admin panels within a week. If you have an active upgrade subscription, you can also download the distro package from your Help Desk account’s File area.


As usual, we are open to hearing your opinions and suggestions on our UserVoice. Feel free to report any bugs that you come across in our software on the bug tracker.

CS-Cart 4.2.1 Released: New Styles, E-mail Marketing, and More

By imac, July 21st, 2014 in News and announcements

Hi!

We’re excited to introduce you to the major new version of our CS-Cart 4.2.1 and Multi-Vendor 4.2.1 software.

CS-Cart 4.2.1

The main features of this release are as follows:

  • Better usability of the admin panel

    For instance, the sidebar is now automatically hidden when it’s not needed, leaving more space for useful content. We’ve also moved it to the right to keep the content alignment consistent when the sidebar is on and off.

    CS-Cart sidebar

  • SEO improvements: automatic 301-status redirects, Google Rich Snippet generation, and automatically normalized URLs (aka canonical URLs)

  • New E-mail marketing add-on with MailChimp and Mad Mimi integration.

    You can now sync your store’s newsletter subscriber lists with your account at the MailChimp and Mad Mimi e-mail marketing services.

  • Two new styles for the Responsive theme.

    Our Responsive theme makes CS-Cart stores look cool on all screen sizes and devices. In 4.2.1, the Responsive theme has become the default, and it has two new styles (so there’re six altogether).

    CS-Cart Styles

Check the full list of changes in the changelog. The list is quite impressive and includes lots of fixes, apart from the above-mentioned additions.

It is also worth mentioning that we have moved to the Crowdin translation service, with a great interface, voting system, glossary, and other cool features.

Get it!

The upgrade should be available to all merchants with active upgrade subscriptions within a week. Also, you can download the new version from your Help Desk File Area.
