Some of the Highlights

Paid Gallery Extensions For Expired Galleries
The option to have customers pay to access an expired gallery with the option to have the gallery expiration date extended for everyone or just for the person paying to access the expired gallery. You can also have it include a print credit or download credits. More information

Include Download Credits With Paid Gallery Access
There is already the option to add an account credit when someone pays to access a gallery (Paid Access), but now there is the option to include Download Credits. Also added to paid access is the option for access for a certain amount of days.

My Downloads Section In My Account
A section in the customers' My Account section to view and re-download photos downloaded either with download credits or free downloads. 

Don't Allow Photos From Different Galleries To Be Added To Collections
An option within collections to not allow customers to add photos to one collection from different galleries. 

Labels & Sorting For Products In The Product Base
Create color-coded labels to apply to products in the product base (kind of like categories) with the option to sort products by labels not only in the product base but also when adding products to a price list. More information.

And a lot more. Click here for the complete change log for this update.

How to update:
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 Sytist version 1.0.0 or higher, 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.

When using the auto update from the admin and it seems to hang when trying to unzip, then the ZIP functions are probably not enabled in the PHP on your hosting. You can contact your host and ask them to enable the ZIP functions in PHP.

Hey Tim, Congratulations. Looks like you've been busy.

I keep hoping with every new release I'll see 'Added ability to sync booking calendar with Google calendar'.

I have looked into the google calendar integration several times and just haven't been able to get my head wrapped around it and there documentation and not very good when it comes to that. I am sure I will try again at some point.

Mike, see attached. It won't show that if the project is closed though.

Hi Tim.

The update keeps getting stuck in the unzip part. How do I fix this?

Hi Tim,
It seems only one of my packages is working with the options showing up in exports. None of the others are. Any ideas what I'm doing wrong?

There seems to be a bug in customer favourites in 3.0 resulting in the customer having hundreds or even thousands of favourites (seems to be duplicated favouries). I understand Tim is working on a fix - but I have alreday had an upset customer on to me... This is reported elsewhere in the support forum - but I thought worth posting here on the update thread too as I was really confused when it was first reported to me.

Sarah, I don't know why. I will look into it in a little while.

Stephen, do you not see an update notice on your admin homepage? If so, go to Settings -> Admin/Main Settings and make sure check for updates is set to yes.

Chris, I released an update this morning with a fix for the duplicate favorites.

If you have already logged into the admin today and don't see the update notice, you can have it check 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.

Hi Tim,
The collection/product options and notes are still NOT showing. Everything is completely empty on the spreadsheet. With hundreds of orders to sort through manually this is a big problem.

Are there photos actually selected for the collection options not showing? Meaning it isn't an empty collection? Actual photos get exported and if the photo is from a collection that has options, the options will export with the photo.
