It’s the holiday season AND we’re also just a few days away from WP Dispensary turning 3 years old, so what better way to celebrate than with a bunch of product releases?!?!
In the continued effort to make WP Dispensary the #1 open source cannabis software solution for dispensaries and delivery services, today we are releasing updates to 4 separate add-on’s.
Those add-on’s updated today include:
- Inventory Management
Keep reading to find out what’s new in each release!
Inventory Management v1.6
This release includes a couple of updates to the Inventory Management settings page.
First, v1.6 updates how the inventory boxes display for each product, adding in text for the product type (gram/units/clones/seeds).
The second item updated in the settings page are the input boxes themselves.
In the previous release, the input fields weren’t distinguishing between product types, so the inventory numbers were not updating the proper data fields.
Inventory Management v1.6 fixes this issue.
Version 1.6 of the Inventory Management plugin also added code that updates the connected WooCommerce product’s inventory, for those of you who use the Connect for WooCommerce plugin.
This update also includeds a new
.pot file for text string localization.
Dispensary Gear v1.5
Version 1.5 of the Gear add-on includes updates to the codebase.
These updates include adding two new helper functions for the Gear product pricing:
Gear v1.5 also adds two new action hooks to the Dispensary Gear product widget:
If you’ve already installed the Gear add-on, you will see the updated version notification in your WordPress dashboard.
There’s also an update to the text displayed in the product updated text, changing out “Post” references to “Gear”.
Dispensary Tinctures 1.6
Version 1.6 of the Tinctures add-on also includes updates to it’s codebase.
These updates include adding two new helper functions for the Tinctures product pricing:
Tinctures version 1.6 also adds two new action hooks to the Dispensary Tinctures product widget:
There’s also an update to the text displayed in the product updated message text, changing out “Post” references to “Tinctures”.
If you’ve already installed the Tinctures add-on, you will see the updated version notification in your WordPress dashboard.
Dispensary Coupons v1.7
While preparing for the release of the WP Dispensary eCommerce add-on this Monday, updates were done to our Coupons add-on.
Just like the Gear and Tinctures add-on’s, this plugin also received the updates to the text that gets displayed in the coupon updated message text, changing out “Post” references to “Coupons”.
The coupons are now also hidden from search results, making sure that users cannot simply search your website and find coupons that are only meant for who you give them to.
Coupons v1.7 also removes the text editor from it’s support, keeping the Add/Edit Coupon screen clean and focused on the information that matters most.
If you’ve already installed the Coupons add-on, you will see the updated version notification in your WordPress dashboard.
WP Dispensary eCommerce
It’s official – Monday, November 26th WP Dispensary turns 3 and will be releasing the WP Dispensary eCommerce add-on.
This is by far the biggest event to hit WP Dispensary since it launched in 2015.
The WP Dispensary eCommerce is going to completely change the way dispensaries and delivery services use WP Dispensary from an eCommerce perspective.
Up until now, the only way to turn your WP Dispensary menu into an online ordering system is to connect to WooCommerce with our Connect for WooCommerce add-on.
With the release of our WP Dispensary eCommerce add-on, you will no longer need WooCommerce, instead powering your online ordering system directly within WP Dispensary.
Our eCommerce add-on includes a customer user role, a shopping cart and checkout system complete with Coupons integration, sales/excise taxes, and payment options for COD, Pay on pickup and Ground Shipping.
There’s also easy order management, a front end account page with login/register forms, and a front end templating system for single product pages and product type/taxonomy archives.
A few screenshot teasers can be seen below.
Full release notes will be available online on Monday, but for now make sure you’re signed up for our newsletter to get an early access discount that won’t be available anywhere else!
