New version of PageCarton - 1.8.68 released today is in essence introducing internationalization to PageCarton. We received this "Please check the operation of CMS in Cyrillic" issue on github by one of our users in Russia and it neccesitated that we applied a quick fix to ensure our global users can use PageCarton without needing to know/use latin alphabets.
Furthermore, we have also used this update to introduce some more bug fixes and performance uprades to PageCarton so that sites and apps upgraded to this version will run faster, enjoy smoother user experience and consume less server resources.
Here is a summary of the changes in this version
Changes for Users
- Temporarily save downloads in cache
Minimize data usage by caching some frequently downloaded content
- Fix multi-price not showing
Products with multi-prices sometimes go hidden because of the price ranges not set. This has been fixed
- Save theme screenshot from repo
The real screenshot of the theme as shown in the repository is what users will now see when they are selecting themes in the New Website Wizard.
- Show updates for installed themes
Themes can now be updated from the Admin Panel just like PageCarton core. Whenever updates for a new theme in available, the user is notified in the admin panel and they can follow the on-screen information to update the theme.
- Once page is created, let's have blank content
New pages now come with blank content so they page is available immediately. Before now, users had to add a content before a page is available, else a created page still shows 404 error if content is not added
- Transliterate url for pages, post and profiles
Users not writing in latin alphabets a-Z can now create Pages, Posts and Upload pictures in their own language. The system automatically Transliterate their text to latic characters. This project - cettox/transliteration was helpful in making this possible. Chinese, Cyrillic, Japanese and every other UTF characters can now be used within PageCarton.
