We just put WP Auctions 3.6 *beta* (not beta anymore) out. Here are the enhancements
- New backend user interface
- Updated the popup styles and slightly modified the auction in a post CSS
- Added HTML support for descriptions in the popup, you can even embed a video now!
- Fixed a nagging tab error for the input fields for auctions in a post
- Faster code
That’s about it for now. We’re working on new upgrades already too!
Here’s something you can expect soon from WP Auctions (the best auction plugin for WordPress in the universe)
- Editable emails
- More styles
- Customizable styles
- …other secret options….
Go ahead and check out the demo on the sidebar for the new popup layout. The auction in a post and the sidebar widget will be updated soon too.
Also, if you haven’t noticed the plugin costs only $29.99, sign up here to download now, from $39.99 a few months ago.
But we will be increasing the price to $35 in a week or two, so if you waited to get this plugin you better do it before the price increase! That works out to around $2.91 per month (for a year of updates), and we add new features every month!
Upgrading from 3+ to 3.6
If you are upgrading from 3+ to version 3.6 follow these instructions.
1. Simply upload all the files from your local directory to your server. The styles/ folder has gone through some considerable change, so delete that folder on your server first before uploading the new styles/ folder.
2. You can delete any files that are not part of the new package, however please only do this if you really know what you’re doing.
Via the WordPress Plugin Upload area
1. Back up your database.
2. You need to delete the WP Auctions plugin first, because you cannot upgrade it while still having a copy on your site. Your auctions will NOT be deleted, so don’t worry about that.
3. Upload the ZIP file you downloaded from your member page via the Plugin Upload area.
4. Activate the plugin again once the upload is finished.
5. If you do not see your images in the auctions then you will have to CHMOD your files/ folder (in wp-content/plugins/wp-auctions/) to 777 again. That’s it.
As always, if you encounter any errors please leave a comment on our help page.
P.S: Did you back your database before upgrading?
P.P.S: Seriously, do it!
