Twigmo 2.6: New Skin, Option Combination Images, and More

Hi,

Today, the Twigmo team is happy to announce the new version of the CS-Cart mobile-friendly kit— Twigmo 2.6.

Twigmo 2.6 includes the new skin (we called it CupCake):

The new skin can be selected on the Twigmo add-on settings page (in the CS-Cart admin panel) after upgrading to version 2.6.

Furthermore, support for the “option combination” feature was added.

This feature enables a store owner to specify a unique image for each product option combination, such as color and size. It is available under Products→[Product name]→Options→Option combinations in the CS-Cart admin panel.

Also, a number of small changes and bug fixes were made. See the full changelog for the complete list of changes.

Add-on Upgrade

If you are a Twigmo 2.3 or above user, you will receive a notification about the available add-on upgrade in your CS-Cart admin panel. You can start the upgrade from the Twigmo add-on settings page; the rest is done automatically.

To upgrade the Twigmo add-on from version 2.2 or earlier, follow the manual upgrade guide.

Twigmo 2.5: Speed Boost and More

Hi,

Today, the Twigmo team is happy to announce the new version of the CS-Cart mobile-friendly kit—Twigmo 2.5.

This is a maintenance release introducing some polishing and optimization, as well as a few new features.

We have improved the Twigmo mobile front-end in two ways: price modifiers are now shown near product options, and customers can now set their own product price right in the mobile store:

Additionally, user device recognition has been improved. It now takes much less time to recognize a user device, and the common CS-Cart logs are no longer crammed with HTTP requests.

See the full changelog for the complete list of changes.

Add-on Upgrade

If you are a Twigmo 2.3 or 2.4 user, you will receive a notification about the available add-on upgrade in your CS-Cart admin panel. You can start the upgrade from the Twigmo add-on settings page; the rest is done automatically.

To upgrade the Twigmo add-on from version 2.2 or earlier, follow the manual upgrade guide.

Twigmo 2.4: New Skin, Language Selector, and More

Hello!

Today, the Twigmo team has released a new version of the CS-Cart mobility kit.

Twigmo 2.4 includes the first additional skin (we called it Handbag) and language selector:

Product page and Language Selector

The new skin can be selected from the Twigmo add-on settings page (in the CS-Cart admin panel) after upgrading to version 2.4. The look and feel of the new skin is editable separately from the
default one, because it has its own custom CSS file (located in the skins/basic/customer/addons/twigmo directory of a CS-Cart installation).

The added language selector (displayed at the bottom of the mobile site) allows a customer to change the language manually (in most cases, this will not be necessary, because Twigmo detects the client’s mobile browser language automatically). The available languages comes from the desktop version of the online store (powered by CS-Cart).

Another important improvement is the revamped Add to cart scenario, based on client feedback. Instead of the Twigmo standard notification, we now display a pop-up dialog box (see the screenshot below). An effort has been made to make every next step obvious and clear for customers.

Apart from that and some bug fixes, Twigmo 2.4 introduces:

  • Payment instructions displayed on the order details page
  • Discount prices displayed on the category and product details pages
  • Support of additional product tabs (only product, category, and HTML blocks) on the product details page
  • Pop-up notifications disappear either on timeout or by tapping

The full list of changes is available on our site.

Add to Cart Notification, Discounts, and Product Tabs

Upgrade

Twigmo 2.3 users will receive notification about the available upgrade in their CS-Cart admin panels. The upgrade process is fully automatic, but it must be initiated manually on the Upgrade tab of the Twigmo add-on settings page.

In order to upgrade Twigmo manually from version 2.2 or an earlier version, follow the manual upgrade guide.

Twigmo 2.3: Auto Update, Category Descriptions, and More

Hello,

A new Twigmo version has been released today.

Version 2.3 contains some new features, including the long-awaited automatic upgrade feature for the Twigmo add-on for CS-Cart. This means that, after you install this new Twigmo add-on, it can be upgraded in a click in the future — no more server-side file manipulations required. The upgrade tool works separately from the default CS-Cart tool and will automatically download the latest Twigmo add-on from our server and replace the old one, keeping all the settings unchanged. All you need to do is run the process.

Apart from that, Twigmo 2.3 introduces:

  • Category description display
  • ‘Accept Terms and Conditions’ at checkout
  • Minimum product quantity and order amount support
  • Responsive on-screen notifications — the longer the text, the longer it is displayed

Numerous other improvements are all listed in the changelog.
