I have two scripts practically finished but because I risk not being on the TOP20

looks like there are still spots left.

if you upload the scripts now you may just get a spot in the top 20. But if you don’t upload the scripts you will miss the massive amount of advertising (= sales to everyone) this category will receive when the winners of the competition are announced all over the interwebs.

Looking great everyone.

I really wanted to enter to this but had a lot on my plate that I wanted to get through. Saw some awesome plugins on the front page the last couple weeks or so.

Congrats and good luck on sales!

I’ve been working on a Woo Commerce extensions to submit to CodeCanyon and today found out version 1.4.1 was out. I decided to continue developing using the current version I had. Once everything was working I upgraded Woo Commerce 1.4.1 to make sure nothing breaks in my extension.

Boy I was in for a surprise! I did not expect a point release to be so aggressively changed. One thing that really surprised me was that Woo decided to rename fundamental classes. For instance the order class was renamed from “woocommerce_order” to “WC_Order”. I also noticed that some hooks were dropped altogether. Unfortunately the Woo Commerce change log is pretty superficial and doesn’t make mention of these changes. I’m continuously diving into Woo Commerce source code and finding new changes.

So those of you who are in the middle of developing something for Woo Commerce move to the latest release because the it’s drastically different.

Good luck all.

Wow, that is unexpected. That’s going to make it much harder to support older and new versions of Woo Commerce.

To be fair to Woo developers, the new changes are good. But there are a lot of them which means you have to check all aspects of your existing code for any breaks.

Looks like we’ll have to specify the exact version numbers our plugins support.

Or get this listed in the drop down in item specifications. But that is not always up to date so best to just wack the version numbers in the item descriptions.

Will have to go through and check my plugins. I noticed my theme broke when jigoshop was updated. So my plugins might be the same.

Thanks for the great suggestion, Docizzen! We will look into the viability of both those products. :)
