Version 2.5: Category Images

FoxyShop versino 2.5 is out and there’s a few new features:

Category Images
If you’ve been pining for category images, FoxyShop has now been optimized to work with the Taxonomy Images plugin. Just install the plugin and follow the instructions to attach images to your product categories. Also, if you don’t want to have category descriptions show up on your category listing page, you can now turn that off when calling the foxyshop_category_children() function. See helperfunctions.php line 563 for more of the exciting details.

Single Sign On Options
Some of our users wanted to use SSO, but didn’t want to force everyone to use it. Let’s say you are selling subscriptions and tchotchkes. The subscriptions do require that you have an account but the tchotchkes don’t. Well now you can select what flavor of SSO you’d like to have: account optional, account required, or product-specific. If you select the last option, you’ll be able select only the products that you WANT to trigger the SSO login requirement.

jQuery Upgraded top 1.6.1
The default jQuery used by FoxyShop is now 1.6.1. Note that 1.6 and IE7 caused problems, but 1.6.1 seems to work very nicely. After upgrading, though, you should probably check all your JavaScript functions and make sure that they still work correctly with the upgraded version.
