lookbook free for woocommerce plugin

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.

The plug-in is available free of charge at official WordPress plugin website.

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.



Lookbook Pro version 1.6.1 is released

Today we’ve released a new version of the most popular lookbook extension for Magento eCommerce – Altima Lookbook Professional. The version 1.6.1 has number of improvements:

  • Better single slide presentation. We’ve removed annoying Pause button and transition bar, so nothing now distract your customers from single slide lookbooks. You can check it in action at our demo website

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.

Altima Lookbook Pro is responsive now!

We’ve just issued new version of Altima Lookbook Professional, an extension for Magento eCommerce that allows online retailers to create interactive sliders for their store.

The demo is available at http://lookbook.altimawebsystems.com

New version, numbered 1.5.0 is released August 11 and has the next important updates:

  • Lookbooks are responsive now. We have been asked about that numerous time by our clients and finally that feature has arrived – size of Altima Lookbook Pro sliders now can adopt to screen size and therefore can be used easily with responsive themes like new one that supported by default in Magento CE version 1.9
  • Naturally the extenison is compatible with Magento CE version 1.9 now;
  • Support of jQuery 1.10
  • Minor bugfixes;

Few notes about responsiveness.

First, placement of hotspots is defined on the load of page, so if you just resize browser window you’ll notice that hotspots are getting wrong. It isn’t ideal but shouldn’t affect most of the users who just load the website and don’t play with its window size. After page reload the placement is corrected.

Second, if the area for lookbook becoming equal or smaller that certain size (400 pixels wide now) it degrades to the simple slideshow, without hotspots. The reason of that is that our tests indicated that it isn’t a good user experience to operate hotspots on small screens. It is possible however to change that limit in configuration file if you really want it.

We will continue work under new version of Altima Lookbook, stay tuned, there are lot’s of idea we have to implement, but if you have your thoughts about how we can make the extension better – drop us a line to support@altima.net.au!
