Sunshine 2.1 has been released, add-on updates

October 7, 2015

Sunshine 2.1 has just been released with a few nice enhancements. We recommend everyone update as soon as possible. By updating, you will not lose any data such as settings, galleries or orders.

What’s new in this release:

Terms of use at checkout

You can optionally set a Terms of Use which users will have to agree to on the Checkout page. Customize the terms to whatever you want. This is a great option to remind users that there are usage restrictions to purchasing digital negatives or any other kind of legal thing you want them to approve before completing their purchase.

Improved Checkout page

On the Checkout page, if a user is not yet logged in but does have an account, they can enter their email and password and be automatically logged into their account. This reduces the need for them to go to a separate login page and then return to the Checkout page. Less steps means less issues means happier clients.

Copy favorite image file names for Lightroom

We added the ability to copy the file names of the images marked as favorite for a user. This makes searching for them in Lightroom a breeze. This is the same feature that was added in a recent release for orders.

Items in cart for 30 days

For non-logged in users, if they added items to cart then closed their browser window they would lose it all. Now, those items will remain in their cart for 30 days. Logged in users have always had items in cart tied to their user account.

Add-ons

Updates for several add-ons have also just been released:

MailChimp / Campaign Monitor

Now integrates with the email to access gallery feature so users can be added to your email list. It also adds new settings that give you more fine grained control on how users get added to the list (if they are asked to join or are automatically added) and when they get added to your list (registration, gallery email access or checkout).

Masonry

Ability to have the Masonry effect be used on the list of galleries page (the main page)

Digital Downloads / Lightbox / Packages / Product Options
