WP Auctions 3.7.1

A small update has been made live for the plugin. You can download it by logging into your member area here.

The auction bid mechanism worked in such a way that Bidder A could place a maximum bid of $100 and be at ease till someone actually outbids them above that amount. Bidder B would bid $25 and be shown a prompt saying that their bid is not high enough, or that they have been outbid already, without registering their bid of $25. This lead to some confusion among users and their bidders. So we decided to do something about it.

Now when Bidder B places a bid of $25, their bid will be registered and Bidder A’s automatic bid will show up to. It’s best illustrated by this image below.

Oh, and I added some line-height via CSS to the bidders list for the popup. It makes the bids placed look more evenly spaced out.
