Currency Switcher for WooCommerce 1.6/2.0.x has been updated to version 188.8.131.52205. 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.
