Big WooCommerce Update

(1/1)

Symbiostock Official:
Hey guys! Long time since we've posted an update here, but just letting you guys know that we've released an update for Symbiostock, which updates all of our plugins, including the 100% free Symbiostock Pro. If you're already on our platform, we suggest you update all your plugins.

If you're new to Symbiostock or are examining your options, Symbiostock is a free WordPress plugin that works with WooCommerce to allow you to easily run your own stock media store. We have hundreds of artists already on it, and are constantly adding new features, updates, and plugins to maximize your autonomous ability to retain 100% of the profits of your craft.

We've also recently released a new Google Licenses premium plugin which feeds Google metadata about your media so when and if it shows up in Google Images, people will see direct links to your Symbiostock store where they can purchase licenses.

Let us know if you have any questions!

Microstock Man:
Thanks for the update, looking forward to trying it out.

Can you confirm that the new updates are PHP 7.4 compliant? Would like to update PHP as well since WooCommerce and Wordpress all support it.

Symbiostock Official:
Hey there - has been confirmed with 7.3, not 7.4. 7.4 has only been out a few months and we try to stick with robust testing with versions that have been out at least a year. Thanks!

Ok thanks for the update. Since PHP updates are released yearly, and you want to wait a year at least, looks like we will always be a year or more behind on the latest PHP version. But thanks for letting us know at least so we can plan accordingly.

Is there a changelog for the new updates?

Symbiostock Official:
We have found there is very little difference in the end result (media sales) with one's PHP version. With the advent of software being released once every 3 days, we tend to be distracted with the idea that there is some newer greater feature with every subsequent version, wheereas the focus should be on the basics: self-promotion, mutual promotion, new creative ideas, and of course, photography. :)

That's why with Symbiostock we do so few releases as we only do it when it is necessary - but when we do, we ensure it is highly stable so that in production environments you can feel safe and secure knowing you're running on our platform.

Changelog is visible when you download it, but overall they are minor tweaks here and there, and a lot of fixes to work with the new WooCommerce 4.0.0. Generally, the base plugin is quite thorough and robust, and a lot of expanded functionality is added through the optional plugins.

Thanks!
