Default Version 1.5.3 of plugin released

We've released 1.5.3 of the plugin. This is mostly a minor bug fix release.
  • fixed duplicate entry errors for referrals from same URL and IP
  • fixed bug with deleting category images and thumbnails
  • renamed function debug to dfrbug to avoid conflicts with other plugins
  • renamed function curlPageURL to dfr_curlPageURL to avoid conflicts with other plugins
  • added the ability to download a copy of your shop from the import feed page
  • fixed bug related to OVERWRITE not actually overwriting the category names

Download this release.

Learn how to upgrade.

Thanks Eric..

I've been meaning to ask about these upgrades ...

I've been reluctant to upgrade because I have, if you recall, those modified files for that beta referral script (or has that been embedded into the new plugin now??). Also I've been making a lot of modifications to many of those files in the templates folder of the plugin and would hate to overwrite all my changes (would existing template files work with new plugin?? or are they release-specific?)

I'm currently at version 1.5.01 and 1.1.4 on the two plugins.

Hi,

If you do the upgrade correctly, you shouldn't have anything to worry about regarding the referral script. When you upgrade you MUST first de-activate the Datafeedr plugin, upload the new files and then re-activate the plugin.

If you are worried, make a backup of the data collected from the referral script.

As long as you edited the datafeedr template files which exist in your theme's directory (and NOT here: wp-content/plugins/datafeedr/templates/), then those files will not be affected.

Hi .. and thanks = that's good to know. I've been editing only the plugin template folder - but, when I switched to the new template I just copied those template files over to the new theme - because my last theme had them.
