Release Notes

What's New in this release?

IMPORTANT: this version requires DotNetNuke 04.06.02 or higher!

THIS VERSION IS A BETA, PLEASE DO NOT USE IT IN PRODUCTION! PERFORM A LOT OF TESTS BEFORE!!!
DO NOT REPORT BUGS HERE IN THE ISSUE TRACKER, INSTEAD USE THE DotNetNuke Store Forum!
DO NOT SEARCH NOR ASK FOR THE SOURCE CODE, I WILL PUBLISH IT AFTER SOME CLEANING!

Bugs corrected:

- A bug preventing to save Store settings and products when the 'Checkout Mode' setting was defined to 'Registration Required' has been corrected.

New Features:

- A new field 'SEO Name' in the category edit form and in the product edit form allow you to define an 'SEO friendly' name for your categories and products. Those fields are availables when the 'SEO Features' setting is checked in the Store Admin module. Only letters, numbers and the signs - and _ can be entered to respect common SEO rules. As a sample, if your catalog contains a category named 'Books about DotNetNuke', you will be able to define an SEO Name: books-about-dotnetnuke. This will produce a new url like this one: http://www.website.tld/Default.aspx?tabid=59&categoryid=80&category=books-about-dotnetnuke.

- Because of the new fields 'SEO Name', a single page can have two different URLs. The problem is that search engines do not like this! In such cases, SEO specialists speak of 'PageRank dilution'. When Google (or any other search engine) finds two pages (url) whose contents are the same, the notation of the page is divided between both pages. This in a common scenario with most CMS like DotNetNuke. This is why the major search engines have defined a new link tag to specify a 'canonical' url. The Store module inject dynamicaly the right url (with id's only) in the page header to specify the canonical url.

Enhancements:

- All links in the Store Catalog module are now related to the same module instance. Previously, some links was build using the 'Store page' setting.

- Several changes have been applied in modules settings and edit forms to show or hide certain settings depending the context of use. As a sample, a new setting 'Inventory Management' in the Store settings display or hide all related fields in the product form. These improvements will allow a simplified settings system for simple use case of the module.

Store 02.01.38 is fully compliant with DotNetNuke migration standards. It can upgrade any previous version, and will be upgradable to the next official version.

SkinObjects are optional if you use the install version, but they are required with the source version.
