Currency Switcher for WooCommerce 1.6/2.0.x updated to version 3.1.0.140212

Currency Switcher for WooCommerce 1.6/2.0.x has been updated to version 3.1.0.140212. This update brings the following improvements and fixes:

  • Improved display of Recent Orders dashboard widget
    • The widget now displays only one total for orders placed in base currency. Orders placed in other currencies will still display the two totals, with the one in base currency enclosed in brackets.
    • The widget now displays the correct currencies for each order total.
  • Added currency selector in “new order” page in the backend
    The “new order” page in WooCommerce backend now includes a currency selector widget. With it, it’s now possible to choose the currency to use to create an order. The widget also displays the currency in which previous orders were placed.
  • Improved compatibility with WooCommerce 2.1
    • Fixed bug in display of prices for variable products in products list page, which was caused by the new logic added to WooCommerce 2.1

Please note that compatibility with WooCommerce 2.1 is still in Beta and there may be issues to be addressed. We do not recommend using such WooCommerce version with the Currency Switcher on a live site.

Pending issues

  • Reports display incorrect totals – Update
    WooCommerce 2.1 implements a new logic to render reports, which doesn’t trigger the Currency Switcher functions. We found out that, currently, the new reports don’t allow 3rd parties to alter the queries used to retrieve the data, thus making it hard to ensure that the correct totals are used. We provided a solution to WooCommerce team, which makes the new logic more flexible.

Currency Switcher for WooCommerce 1.6/2.0.x updated to version 3.0.5.140211

Currency Switcher for WooCommerce 1.6/2.0.x has been updated to version 3.0.5.140211. This update brings the following improvements and fixes:

  • Revised version number
    Some visitors got confused by the Beta in the version, therefore we felt the need to clarify its meaning. The Currency Switcher 3.0 is stable, ready for use in production and fully compatible with WooCommerce 2.0.x. The Beta refers to the compatibility with WooCommerce 2.1, which is still a work in progress. To reflect this, the “Beta” label has now been removed from the version number and a warning message is displayed in the Currency Switcher Options page, to highlight that we are still working to fix the issues that are caused by the installation of WooCommerce 2.1.
  • Improved compatibility with WooCommerce 2.1
    We modified some of the logic in the plugin to deal with the changes in the display of products:

    • Sale prices for variable products is now displayed correctly.
    • New filters have been added, to handle the new way prices are retrieved for variable products.
  • Added handling of multiple IP addresses in X-Forwarded-For header
    In some configurations, X-Forwarded-For header contains a list of comma separated IP addresses, where the first in the list is the client IP address. The Currency Switcher now handles such condition, taking the first IP for Geolocation resolution purposes.

Please note that compatibility with WooCommerce 2.1 is still in Beta and there may be issues to be addressed. We do not recommend using such version with the Currency Switcher on a live site.

Pending issues

  • Reports display incorrect totals
    WooCommerce 2.1 implements a completely new logic to render reports, which doesn’t trigger the Currency Switcher functions. We are now analysing the new code to ensure that the reports are generated correctly.

Currency Switcher for WooCommerce 1.6/2.0.x updated to version 3.0.2.140210-Beta

Currency Switcher for WooCommerce 1.6/2.0.x has been updated to version 3.0.2.140210-Beta. This update brings the following improvements and fixes:

  • Preliminary compatibility with WooCommerce 2.1
  • As anticipated earlier today, the architecture of WooCommerce 2.1 is significantly different from 2.0.x. Some of the changes introduced in this version break backward compatibility, thus causing undesired side effect in 3rd party plugins. We are now working to address issues caused by such update.
  • The following issues have been addressed:
    • Fixed error message related to absence of WC_Google_Analytics class
      Such class was part of WooCommerce core until version 2.0.20. From 2.1, it has been moved to a separate plugin.
    • Adapted logic to retrieve order currency
      WooCommerce 2.0 and 2.1 handle order attributes differently. Plugin logic has been modified to cater for both versions.
    • Fixed issue in displaying order totals in orders list page
      Order totals are handled correctly throughout the purchase process, but they are displayed incorrectly on Orders page in WC2.1 (again, due to a change in the core logic). Such issue has been addressed.
  • Removed unnecessary files.

Please note that compatibility with WooCommerce 2.1 is still in Beta and there may be issues to be addressed. We do not recommend using such version with the Currency Switcher on a live site.

Pending issues

  • Reports display incorrect totals
    WooCommerce 2.1 implements a completely new logic to render reports, which doesn’t trigger the Currency Switcher functions. We are now analysing the new code to ensure that the reports are generated correctly.

Currency Switcher for WooCommerce 1.6/2.0.x updated to version 2.6.2.140205

Currency Switcher for WooCommerce 1.6/2.0.x has been updated to version 2.6.2.140205. This is an important update, and it includes several new, important features that have been requested by many of our customers:

A shortcode to display the currency selector widget

From version 2.6 onward, in addition to original method of displaying the widget in a sidebar, it’s finally possible to display it in any page, by simply calling the shortcode, as in the example below:
[aelia_currency_selector_widget title="Widget title (optional)" widget_type="dropdown|buttons"]

A new layout for the currency selector widget

As you may have noticed, the shortcode accepts two parameters, one of which is the type of widget to display. The Currency Switcher now includes the classic widget with a dropdown list of currencies, and a new one that displays a button for each enabled currency. Both layouts can be overridden by copying the widget template files into your theme, allowing you to display the widget in any way you like. Further instructions can be found on a the Documentation section on plugin’s settings page

In addition to the above new features, this version also brings the following improvements and bug fixes:

  • Optimised data retrieval from Open Exchange Rates. Retrieval of data from Open Exchange Rates is now faster and more stable
  • Fixed dashboard reports. The dashboard reports were displaying the wrong totals, due to a mixup in the currencies. This issue has now been fixed. Note: the main reports have always been correct, the bug only affected the dashboard report widgets.

Overall, a great new release, of which we are very happy. We would like to thank all the people who contributed with their feedback, allowing us to improve our product and bring it to its current level.
