New Sytist Update Available 1.1.0

A new update is available today with some new stuff. Main new features

  • Mailing List feature and integration with Info in the manual . You can enable this at checkout, as a form, and as a signup popup that comes up the first time someone visits your website. You can see an example the first time you view the demo

  • PHP 7 compatible.

  • Added the option to duplicate a page.

  • Added the option to require the customer to be logged in to add to cart but also be able to see the products and pricing. Option when editing a price list settings.

  • Added the option for a customer to add all of their favorites to a collection

  • batch edit product prices

And more.

View the Change Log here to view all changes.

The first time each day you log into the admin it will check for the update. If you have already logged into your admin today , then you won't get the notice until tomorrow.

If you are currently using version 1.0.0, you can have it check for the update again by clicking on Settings in the main menu. Then scroll down and below the left menu, click MySQL query. Copy the following line of code, paste it in the query box and click run.

UPDATE ms_history SET upgrade_check='';

Then return to your admin home page.

If the auto update feature won't work for you for some reason, you will have to manually update.

If you update and get an error related to unknown function mysqli_ or similar ...
I don't think this will come up, but if you get an error like that, that means your host doesn't have the mysqli_* functions enabled in your PHP installation. This was changed to be compatible with PHP7. You may just have to update the PHP version. If you need to roll back to the last version, email me.

I applied the new update and changed my price lists settings under Require customer to be log into their account to add to cart to Yes and display products.

When not logged I can see the product and price list but if I click on add to cart It looks like it is adding the item, but the cart is empty. Should there not be an error message like, "You must be logged in to add to cart"?

Also, I am still able to add to cart from store pages without being logged in.

have just upgraded to 1.1.0 via manually uploading and overwriting the upgrade files folder. Now I can't access my website as the pages just display a blank page.

just seen it's related to not having MySQLi installed on my server. Have now added it to my Apache settings and website now back working, phew.

I updated to the new version and my theme went all wrong. No background, links became text. looked as though css styles were not being detected.
It also showed functions that were disabled, such as Facebook and Mailing List boxes.

I have now rolled back to v1.0 hoping that would fix it but it hasn't.

Any ideas on what might have gone wrong?

Replied to your email.

I think it is because your are forcing httpS with an .htaccess file and you need to make an adjustment to the sy-config.php file. Basically when you try to save the theme, it is getting a moved response and can't create the css file.

See step #2 of this page:

Hey Tim - Absolutely love the new mailing list feature! Quick question - is there a way (or are you planning a way) to add a checkbox to a contact form to just pull the name/email from the form they're already submitting to add to the mailing list? Thanks as always.

I haven't considered doing it for the contact form, but will make a note to look into it.
