Now that PHPExcel is baked in I’ll be keeping an eye out for export issues arising from the new file generation engine. Development focus for the 1.9 series are:
multiple scheduled export support
[included in 1.9.2] scheduled export frequency scheduling (e.g. run export A at 5:00pm each Friday)
export an XML feed in RSS 2.0 format compatible with Google Merchant (we’re getting there but it didn’t make it into 1.9)
WP e-Commerce 3.8 official has hit the streets and is continuing to get love with the 3.8.1 Plugin update! Now is a great chance to cover the rollout of support for WP e-Commerce 3.8 within the free and premium WP e-Commerce Plugins available here on Visser Labs, many of which already do or now fully support the new 3.8 release.
Several Plugins already include support for WP e-Commerce 3.8 official carrying over from early 3.8 development releases (e.g. RC1, RC2, etc.) but due to changes between these builds I?m now going through and confirming working compatibility with WP e-Commerce 3.8 official. Those that do not yet include support for WP e-Commerce 3.8 will very shortly. Check the table below for progress; I’ll be updating thoughout the day.
I?ve added a WP e-Commerce Compatibility tab to each Plugin page for easy reference as to whether 3.8 support is available and confirmed also in the future as to whether the Plugin is backwards compatible with existing 3.7 stores; don?t worry, I?ll be supporting both for a long time yet!
PayPal Certified developers can proudly display the PayPal Certified logo in emails and website
Forum to exchange ideas, respond to merchant queries, interact with other developers
Marketing materials to assist developers in selling PayPal integration packages to clients
PayPal Developer Community is very much U.S. focused, Australian content/forum section in the works
PayPal Certified Developer Directory
PayPal Certified developers are listed in the PayPal Certified Developer Directory
Online merchants can use the directory to find local PayPal Certified developers
The listing page needs basic filtering, it’s currently just a ‘list’. Filtering based on local region (Australia, India, Japan, South Korea, etc.), expertise (e.g. PHP, ASP, .NET, WordPress, DotNetNuke, etc.) and hourly rate (e.g. fixed rate of $150 AUD per hour, quote available, etc.) would improve the directory’s value to online merchants
The directory gives a direct link back the Online Merchant Network (www.onlinemerchantnetwork.com) which has an unknown PR, yet the domain is 3 years old.
Australia is grouped under the Asia Pacific group catering for a very large region, Austalia should be on it’s own as developers are typically only familiar with their own local region
The entire process of delivering information over the Internet has entered a new phase. A wide variety of factors contribute to this, with the demand driving the development of the technology, but conversely, the actual availability of that technology fuelling the demand.
Vodafone Australia are experimenting with recharging mobile credit using your PayPal account, until 31st of January there’s a 10% off cap recharge vouchers using this method. Loving that USD currency conversion to AUD!
Windows Vista continues to amaze me after I introduced multiple Windows Vista machines into a wired network environment using DHCP to assign local IP addresses. After a day’s exhaustive research I now have stable “Local and Internet” access on all workstations with consistent results.
