We’re pleased to announce the release of WP Auctions v5.7. Here’s what’s new.
Upgrades and Downgrades
- Switched date time picker to CDN version
- Deprecated the AddThis sharing buttons feature – We have removed this as it just seemed counter-intuitive to have inbuilt sharing icons for auctions that would be embedded into a Post/Page. Since 99.9% of WordPress websites have some sort of social sharing method, this was just extra weight our plugin did not need.
- Deprecated custom template fields feature – This feature seemed like it was in demand at the time, but as years have gone by we’ve not had ANY requests for support or for extra enhancements to it. So we decided to trim it off as well. Makes the plugin lighter and faster in the backend.
- Sanitised placeholder data
The previous version prior had the following updates applied to it.
- Enhancement: Auto refresh now refreshes more parts of traditional style
- Enhancement: New feature that deletes auctions/bids older than 6 months (clean up)
So that’s about it.
If you are a present customer, there’s no immediate requirement to upgrade from v5.6 to v5.7. The only enhancements you will see are in performance on the backend and less clutter.
