Today we have officially released the first version of our lookbook plug-in for Woocommerce/Wordpress.

It’s based on the most popular lookbook extension for Magento eCommerce, so now Woocommerce merchants can provide “shop the look” experience to their customer. Essentially Altima Lookbook allows merchants to create sliders with several clickable markers/tags/hotspots per slide, each of them can be linked to product or any arbitrary URL. That way you can place for example a photo of the room with hotspot on a chair a bed and a sofa or photo of models with tags on their dresses, handbags and hats.

SUPEE-6788 compatibility patches for Altima Lookbook issued


Altima Lookbook Magento Extension SUPEE-6788 update

As most of the people in Magento community know last week Magento issued a new security patch SUPEE-6788 that does a good job to harden Magento against cyber criminals. This patch however changes admin routing that leads to the lost of back compatibility with many extensions, including our Lookbook (both Free and Pro versions).

To address this issue we’ve released new versions of the extension and prepared patches for old releases. The references and recommendations are below.

Altima Lookbook Professional

A new minor update version 1.6.2 compatible with SUPEE-6788 is released, that is what a new customer gets when purchases Altima Lookbook Pro from our online store.

We’ve also prepared patches for 3 previous versions, the links to download them are below:

You just need to download patches and replace the files they contain.

If you run older than 1.5.2 version of Altima Lookbook Pro it is probably time to upgrade. Aside of SUPEE-6788 there are number of great features available in newer releases.

Altima Lookbook Free

We’ve released a minor update version, 1.1.1 that is compatible with SUPEE-6788, you can download it from our online store (free of charge). We’ve submitted new version to Magento Connect, hopefully it will be approved there soon.

Also you can apply the patch to your existing install (latest previous version  1.1.0) – PatchFixSupee6788-Free1.1.0

If you have an older version we suggest you to upgrade.

Better credit card form free Magento eCommerce extension is released


Entering payment information is a critical part of purchase process and even slight improvement there can help significantly lift online retailer’s revenue.

Some time ago we’ve discovered a great jQuery library developed by Jesse Pollak that makes the process to fill credit card details much more intuitive and user-friendly. It basically guide a user through the process and provides true WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get) experience. The image below (credits – J.Pollak) illustrates how it works better than words

Better credit card form for Magento eCommerce

 

The library is completely open-source (released under MIT) licence and we decided that it would be great to have a Magento eCommerce extension based on this library, so even not very technical savvy merchants can install it and benefit from much better credit card forms.

We were a bit busy with our other Magento extension, so it takes some time, but finally, Better Credit Card Form extension for Magento eCommerce is ready! We decided to release it under MIT licence, anybody can download it, use for commercial and non-commercial projects, improve and modify.

You are welcome to download the extension from our online store or Github and share your feedback with us.

New version of Altima Lookbook Pro released with number of great improvements


New version of Altima Lookbook Professional announcement

We are happy to announce the release of new version of Altima Lookbook Professional. This new version has number 1.6 and contains number of significant changes, both in underlying technologies and in functionality.

1. Move to new jQuery slider library.

In previous versions of Altima Lookbook we had been using Camera library for slideshow functionality. Camera was a great solution couple years ago and still works fine, but the project looks a bit abandoned, there are no new releases for a long time. New version of Magento (CE 1.9+ and EE 1.14+) includes responsive theme that contains Cycle2 library, which is now recommended to be used for carousels/sliders/slideshows, so we decided to migrate our extension to this new library. In addition to working with more up-to-date technology your store in many cases will have less libraries included that is good for both performance (faster load time) and technical complexity of the solution.

We’ve worked hard to replicate the functionality missed in Cycle2 library, namely all that nice transitions that existed in Camera, so new version of Altima Lookbook didn’t lose any nice feature.

2. Automatic jQuery inclusion recognition

Around 75% of issues our customers reports to us when they install our extension are related with double jQuery inclusion. If it happens Altima Lookbook and often other extensions using jQuery don’t work as they should. To tackle this we’ve added and automatic recognition, is there jQuery already included on the page where lookbook slider should appear and if it is we don’t include jQuery. So there will be less conflicts and easier installation.

3. Improved work with vertical sliders

In the previous versions if your slider contains both portrait (vertical) and landscape images the slider may look a bit odd: portrait/vertically oriented slider occupies less horizontal space, so rendering of such sliders were not ideal. In new version we transform all slides in the slider to have the same dimensions, so such portrait slides look much better.

4. Call specific slide in slider

We had several requests from the client about making a link to lookbook slider such a way that it starts not from the first slide, but from slide #3 for example. Now it is possible, you can add a parameter in URL and people who click URL will see your lookbook starting from the specific slide.

Aside of these major changes we’ve fixed number of small bugs and made other little improvements, so we hope that you’ll enjoy using a new version of Altima Lookbook Professional.

What is new in the latest version:

  • support of real-time hotspots placement for better responsiveness. Now hotspots are placed on right positions on fly, without page reload, which is especially useful for mobile users who switch from portrait to landscape mode or vice-verse;
  • support of single slide mode. Some customer uses lookbook with just one slide. For example it can be used to display a scheme with many small products linked. We have improved usability for this case, right now if you have just one slide the navigation and transition effects will be automatically disabled, you may check single slide in action here (link to our demo-site);
  • support of default link. Right now you can define a default link for each slide. It is linked with the whole slide and works when user clicks to the slide area not related with any hotspots or in the case when the slider is degraded to simple gallery on very small screens. Effectively it also allows to use our extension for simple slider, when you need just one link per slide, so you don’t need to install multiple extensions;
  • small fixes and minor improvements;

You can check new version in action on demo website.
