View detailed information about this update in the changelog here.

If the update hangs on unzipping (Step 2), see the bottom of this message.

A few additions include:  

Added reCAPTCHA V2 option to protect forms from spam and malicious bots. (Manual)

Updated Square payment option for SCA (Strong Customer Authentication). (More info)

Added PayPal Checkout / Smart Buttons payment option (separate from the Standard Business option). (Manual)

Added graphic options for the additional order fields at checkout in your price lists which can be used to have customers select a greenscreen background photo on pre-orders for example.

Added the option for Image Options for photos in collections.

And more.

View the change log here.

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. If it used to work then your host probably changed something to cause the ZIP functions in PHP to go away. You can contact your hosting company and ask them to enable the ZIP functions in PHP.

I just did an update. My home page and website is acting like it is in mobile device mode. All the title links are in standard text and moved to the left side of the page. www.avalonphoto.net. The theme looks okay in the admin but it is not projecting the correct layout in the web page. I can login to the pages but the clicking on the images is not working. Can I retry the automatic update process...maybe something went wrong? Though I have never had a problem in the past with the automatic update.

I check with godaddy to make sure the server is working correctly. I uploaded a test index page and I even changed the main theme page. When I try to change the theme page and save changes it is not making the changes on the host site. I think something happened during the upgrade. Help needed as I am dead in the water

The problem isn't from the upgrade. When saving your theme the CSS file content is "301 Moved Permanently" so there is no styling. You have changed something since the last time you saved your theme like forcing httpS.

In your Sytist admin click Settings in the main menu then underneath the left menu click edit config file.

About the 3rd line add a s to http for the url

$setup['url'] = "https://".$_SERVER['HTTP_HOST']."";

and save.

Then go to Design -> Edit My Theme and save your theme.

Be sure you are accessing the admin with httpS in the URl.
