Plugin update: Store Exporter Deluxe 1.6.1 for WooCommerce

Hi WooCommerce store owners, the latest 1.6.1 Plugin update is a minor Plugin update that removes the dependency on our basic Store Exporter Plugin, Store Exporter Deluxe is now a standalone Plugin and will de-activate the basic Store Exporter Plugin if it is detected. This means minimizing export conflicts between our basic Store Exporter and Premium Plugin and ability to release regular one-click updates via the Dashboard > Updates screen for Store Exporter Deluxe.

This new update includes a new export type called Users which allows for the exporting of all WordPress Users across User Roles and pulls the Billing/Shipping/Additional User Profile fields from the Edit Profile screen. We’ll be adding further filtering and sorting options in a future Plugin update.

Notice: If possible please update to the latest release of Store Exporter Deluxe by de-activating the basic Store Exporter Plugin before activating the latest release of Store Exporter Deluxe. we have done our best to minimize Plugin conflicts resulting in fatal PHP errors ala ‘blank screens’ but this may occur if one of either Store Exporter or Store Exporter Deluxe are out of date. If you run into trouble contact us on Premium Support or raise an issue here on the Blog and we’ll follow this up with you.

Here’s the complete changelog:

[Plugin update] Store Exporter Deluxe 1.5.9

Hi store owners, the latest release of Store Exporter Deluxe that’s available adds 3rd party export support for several popular WooCommerce extensions (free and Premium Plugins!) as well as includes some bug fixes for Order Item formatting within the Orders export.

Focus for the next major Plugin update for Store Exporter Deluxe is to remove the dependence of updating our basic Store Exporter by moving the ‘guts’ of our basic exporter into Store Exporter Deluxe and disabling the basic Plugin on activation. This resolves any issue with out of date Plugins interfering with each other and means a single Plugin can be kept up to date to deliver the latest export features.

We’re aware of an issue affecting automatic Plugin updates not appearing using the WordPress Plugin installer (Dashboard > Updates) which we’ll be working to resolve on our side, in the interim please download Plugin updates via our website from the My Account page.

Check out our Plugin roadmap for what’s planned and in progress for future Plugin updates, we’re aiming for weekly minor releases. Happy exporting! :)

  3. Under the ‘Store Page’ entry change the Page Type from Exchange  to WordPress
  4. A new dropdown under Page Title will appear, select the new ‘Storefront’ Page you created

[New Plugin] Store Exporter for Exchange

Today we welcome iThemes Exchange to the family of supported WordPress e-Commerce platforms and to mark the occasion we’re releasing our free Store Exporter for Exchange!

Here’s what we like about Exchange as developers and fellow store owners and why we’ve chosen to develop ‘addons’ for this platform:

  • The Exchange e-Commerce platform is comprised of core and 3rd Party ‘addons’ which can be toggled on and off based on store needs, minimizing bloat and maximising store performance
  • The opening ‘Setup Wizard’ makes setting up a new store a breeze
  • It’s simple UI across WordPress Administration screens only show store functionality enabled for that store
  • It needs more Addons from us!

We will be following up the release of Store Exporter for Exchange with a free Product Importer addon, then focusing efforts on a Pro package for import/export within Exchange. Over the next quarter we will be honing our strengths on exporting/importing across the WordPress e-Commerce marketplace in more formats than the humble CSV file. ;)
