WC Vendors Pro v1.5.6 is now available for download. We have addressed a few bugs in this release as well as introduced a few new features- including a Vendor search widget, a maps selector for the vendor settings and more.

Whats New ?

The Vendor Search Widget

We have been getting requests from our users to include more vendor information in the form of widgets to allow for more control over the design of the vendor store fronts. We have now include the vendor search widget.

This widget provides a search bar which will allow visitors to the site to search for a specific vendor.

You need to have the WC Vendors Pro vendor list page set in order to use this widget, so please ensure that you have a page created on your site  with this shortcode [wcv_pro_vendorlist] .

The search results will be displayed using the same style as the WC Vendors Pro vendor list.

 

 

Maps Selector

Another new feature in WC Vendors Pro v1.5.6 is the Maps Selector.  This will allow the vendors to enter their address with longitude and latitude to be used with the WC Vendors Vendor Store Map widget, and also with other third party plugins or applications which would need to use longitude and latitude for vendor store location.

There are new options in admin for you to use to enter your Google Maps API Key, as well as choose a few other options for this feature.

The settings are available in wp admin > wc vendors > settings > general : Google Maps API (shown below)

The vendors will then have options to add their store address latitude and longitude in their vendor dashboard settings Pro Vendors Dashboard > Settings > Store ( shown below )

Actions Added to Simple Product Form

The final new feature added in this release are Actions added to the Simple Product Form.  This will enable customization, more fields or functions to be added to that form if you wish to do so while customizing, and reduce or negate the need to modify the template to make many types of changes to the Simple Product form.


To add these features and provide the fixes, there were two templates that were updated.

Please be sure that if you are overriding these templates in your child theme, you re-copy and apply your changes to these new templates so that they will remain current:

  • templates/front/vendor-signup-form.php
  • templates/dashboard/product-simple.php
