My Christmas gift: Address autocomplete at checkout!

One of my favorite features on e-commerce websites is when I can start typing and my whole address appears automatically for me. Sunshine 2.9.1 now includes this feature using Google Maps! All you need is a Google Maps API key, here is how to set it up.

Speed improvements in the admin

Some Sunshine Pro users were having issues with their admin being slow. The core plugin and the Automated Emails add-on were both contributing to this. Both are now updated and should hopefully resolve this speed issue for those who were seeing it!

Sunshine Photo Cart 3.0 is underway!

One of my goals for 2021 was to begin work on Sunshine Photo Cart 3.0. In October I decided, after 8 years of the same core code that Sunshine has been using since 1.0 was released, it was time to get to work! My goal is to make the code much more streamlined, efficient, and easier to extend so I can create more new features, faster. So far things have been going very quickly and working well.

I don't have anything ready to show off yet, but the main things I have accomplished so far are a completely re-invented checkout experience for customers, a whole new look to the admin user interface, and a new theme for your galleries. I look forward to continuing with the new version and showing it off in 2022! If you have any interest in being a tester when it is ready let me know!
