After about 3 weeks of delays they’re finally here! WC Vendors 2.0 was released today to WordPress.org along with WC Vendors Pro 1.5.0 via the my-account page. There are a lot of changes in both WC Vendors and WC Vendors Pro that will require that you do thorough testing on your staging server before updating to this latest release on your live website. There are a lot of internal changes so if you have any plugins or themes that were build for WC Vendors there is a chance that you may face issues until the developers catch up.
DO NOT BLINDLY UPDATE YOUR SITE.
Please be sure to make a complete backup of your site before continuing any upgrades.
How to Upgrade ?
If you’re a user of only WC Vendors then your upgrade path is quite simple. After testing you can simply update the plugin via the plugins screen after the update is shown as available. You can read the complete upgrade guide for WC Vendors here.
Please Note: Deactivate WC Vendors Pro BEFORE updating WC Vendors.
WC Vendors Pro
If you’re a WC Vendors Pro user than your upgrade path requires a few extra steps. This is because of the incompatibility of WC Vendors 2.0 and WC Vendors 1.4.6. You will have to manually upgrade WC Vendors Pro for this release. To ensure that your site doesn’t have any fatal errors on activation of WC Vendors it will disable WC Vendors Pro if it detects a version below 1.5.0. I’ve just finished a help document to outline how to perform this upgrade.
