This is a cumulative update for the Customizer 4.1.0+ that is automatically remotely updated on our platform for all deployments – nothing for you to update there.
However, the MyStyle Custom Product Designer 3.17.4 WP Plugin itself will require an update from your WP Admin > Plugins page to apply that update.
As with any major update, please test your Customizer after updating and report any issues that you find in the support channel for your license and we’ll investigate right away.
We are continuing to push minor updates this week as any reports are made.
In the mean time, enjoy the new speed and updates!
The MyStyle team is excited to announce a minor change in the code but a major update for the plugin. The plugin will now use our HTML5 Customizer by default, as opposed to the Flash customizer. This marks the official deprecation of the Flash version and strong recommendation to update your MyStyle plugins and switch your own Customizer apps entirely over to HTML5.
You’ll see the Settings tab switched to say “Enable Flash (Not Recommended)”. Make sure this is NOT checked to always use HTML5.
Our team has been working around the clock to update our HTML5 customizer with new standards for mobile usability and the core feature list from our legacy Flash Customizer. We’re happy to say that between our new versions of the HTML5 Customizer and Renderer combined we are now printing at higher resolutions than ever with the SVG and JPG formats with 300dpi and vector quality.
The entire family of MyStyle plugins are being updated to support the new Render links! This updated is for the MyStyle Order Queue Add On, and includes:
- Added ability to search the Order Queue using the order id.
- Now only showing the Print Image link for jpg and png files.
- Added the Renderer link to the Order Queue page.
This is another step forward toward full HTML5 support including print ready files.
We recently released version 2.0.2 of the MyStyle Custom Product Designer plugin for WordPress / WooCommerce. This update addresses compatibility issues with the WooCommerce Dynamic Pricing plugin by Lucas Stark and saved designs being re-added to cart later with custom options and custom pricing on the product.
Dynamic Pricing and Saved MyStyle Designs Adding to Cart from Saved Design-Profile Page
v2.0.2 of the main MyStyle WP plugin fixes a bug with setting the quantity when buying products from the design profile page.
This should fix the issue for anyone using this plugin that is seeing issues with special pricing rules, attributes, and adding to cart.
Also, adding to cart from the design profile page redirects to the cart and shows a “product added to cart” message.
How to Update
To update just press “update” on your MyStyle plugin in your wordpress plugin list.
Third Party Plugin Updates Warning: We do not recommend updating all plugins. Updating the MyStyle plugin alone should be enough to remedy this issue, and updating all other plugins may lead to unwanted conflicts with other third party plugins. Always update plugins with caution and only after making a backup.
We recently released MyStyle Custom Product Designer plugin version 1.7 for wordpress / woo commerce. You can update right in your WP Admin by clicking update on the plugin.
Bot Sessions Saving in DB
As usual, bots are ruining nice things on the internet. Because of the large amount of bot traffic (including both legit bots like search engine bots, monitoring bots, etc and also spambots and hackerbots and such) session data to track user designs may have increased the database table sizes significantly, depending on how your site is set up to block bots or not. In some cases, the tables were very very large having stored hundreds of thousands of bot sessions. This was discovered in versions less than 1.7 in May 2017 and quickly fixed. With version 1.7 design sessions will only be stored upon design completion, and the database will be automatically purged of old bot session data. If the table sizes grow large enough, it could cause poor performance on the website (slowing down website response time).
Fixed in 1.7 with Auto-Clean-Up
MyStyle Custom Product Designer v1.7 and higher will automatically clean up old session data in the DB, purging it entirely to shrink the table size. New sessions will not be stored for bots, keeping things small and clean.
1.7+ Update Recommended
If you are using the MyStyle Custom Product Designer for WordPress / WooCommerce and have a version less than 1.7, we highly recommend updating to 1.7 to auto-clean your session data from the DB and prevent bots from slowing down your database.
