Padloper 2 has been released

I will write a better post later.

Need to know for now:

  1. Get it from here.
  2. We will be transitioning to a new website and/or shop in due course. For now, please get it from that old site.
  3. For now, and to allow it to bow out gracefully, initial purchases will be powered by Padloper 1. All hail Padloper 1 :-).
  4. Due to #2, and #3 and due to non-SCA compliance on that particular site, there might be Stripe issues. Apologies. Please contact me for help.
  5. Support for Padloper 1 has ceased. Security fixes will continue. Things I have promised to look at will be looked at :-).
  6. Support subscription period for beta testers' purchases commences today - 30 March 2022. 
  7. It is a special day...in more than one way...

Update 3 April 2022

Frequently Asked Questions

A few questions are coming up with respect to this release. For now, I'll answer them here but might start a new threaded dedicated to FAQs.

Q: Will beta testers have to purchase a new licence for this release?

A: No. Your licence and download link are still valid. The only difference is the countdown of your VIP support commences on 30 March 2022. Subscriptions and updates are valid for one year. This download link was emailed to you when you purchased Padloper 2. Please contact me if you do not have a download link.

Q: I have shops built in Padloper 1 that I'd like to migrate to Padloper 2. I don't have the expertise and/or time to do the migration myself. Is there paid support for this?

A: Yes, paid support is available. We can migrate your Padloper 1 shop to Padloper 2 per your specifications. This includes both backend and frontend migration. You can purchase either or both backend and frontend migration. Please contact me to discuss. We will soon add this custom work information to our website.

Q: Is there a backend/admin demo of Padloper 2 that I can test pre-purchase?

A: Yes. We are currently putting final touches to it. An announcement will be made here once this is ready.

Q: Which is now the official Padloper support forum?

A: This forum will eventually become the official Padloper support forum Although it is a public forum, we will still be able to offer VIP support. The only difference is downloads will be not be available in the forums, since it is open. Support via email will still be available as well.

 

Q: I am getting a called to undefined function bcmul() after install. What does this mean?

A: Please see the minimum requirements for Padloper 2. You will need to install the PHP extension bcmath on your server. This is in order to get accurate rounding off of currencies.

Those with the beta version, please note that there have been some changes to the order template. Some fields have been removed and a few things re-arranged. If you cannot do a fresh install, please let me know and I'll guide you through the changes. Thanks.

I can organise guest access to a backend if anyone wants to have a look. Please PM me if this is of interest. I will be making videos in due course but actually testing it for yourself is still good.

Hi all,

I am working on demo videos for Padloper 2. In the first instance, these will be short tutorial videos to get you up and running quickly. You'll be able to use these in lieu of or in addition to the docs. I'll let you know when these are up. Thanks.

This all looks very promising, I can see areas where additional common tweaks or added tools would be helpful. Integration for USPS/UPS/DHL realtime rate quotes is an obvious one. Will you be setting up a roadmap/wishlist hub someplace like uservoice or something along those lines? This project is going to have a lot more of those than any other plugin you've done I think...

Definitely. The current plan is for a wishlist in this forum. Whilst a roadmap and a wishlist are not always congruent, the latter, in some cases, will feed into the former.

What is the best way to sell subscriptions? Is this handled in the data that is transmitted to Stripe, or is there support in the module(s) for monthly charges?

None of those are supported at the moment.
