That is exciting. Can't wait to see it!

Take a look at the attached mockup for a preview of the new one-page checkout.

The admin will allow you to edit the content for every section of the process, unlike the current version. You will be able to enable/disable (show/hide) the account creation and promotional code forms. You’ll notice at the bottom of the page there is a checkbox for the customer to join a mailing list. In the admin you can set which BV mailing list to use for this. Lastly, the address book functionality will be redesigned, though we have yet to work out exactly how that will look and function.

I welcome feedback as we move to finish this up in the coming weeks.

I've finally adopted Aaron's menu content block in our header. We are still working with a few categories but the functionality is there. It's nice to have a dynamic drop down system the pulls from the database instead of hard coding a menu. Real nice addition to the site. http://www.medsupplier.com.

No, a BV 6 version is not planned. We do, however, have a new release for BV 5 coming out soon with some great new features. Stay tuned!

Version 2.0 is here!

We've been dying to release this but the new one-page checkout has been holding things up. Rather than wait any longer we're releasing version 2 now and the new checkout will be added later. I've updated the original post in this thread but here's just the new stuff:



(new) Develisys Product Reviews List (Content Block)
This highly configurable content block, similar in function to our Top Sellers content block, allows you to show the latest product reviews on the site

(new) Develisys Dynamic HTML (Content Block)
Allows you to add HTML to a Content Column, like BV’s built-in HTML Content Block, but with the added flexibility of using tags. The standard BV ‘site’ and ‘user’ tags are available as well as two special tags which enable you to add a single product (using our DevelisysSingleProductDisplay control) or product grid (using our DevelisysProductGridDisplay control) to the page. Here is the syntax:

Single Product: [[Product:SKU]]
Product Grid: [[ProductGrid:SKU1,SKU2,SKU3|SKU4,SKU5,SKU6]] – the “|” would represent a new row of products

(new) Order Status
Allows customs to lookup their orders to check their status, tracking numbers, etc even if they do not have an account. Just navigate to the page, /OrderStatus.aspx. Customers can look up their order by entering the order number and their billing postal code. Also, since the page uses a query string to pass this information, you can add an order lookup link to your customer emails using the existing BV email tags/tokens like this:

Code:

<a href="[[Site.SecureUrl]]orderstatus.aspx?order=[[Order.OrderNumber]]&code=[[Order.BillingAddress.PostalCode]]">[[Site.SecureUrl]]orderstatus.aspx?order=[[Order.OrderNumber]]&code=[[Order.BillingAddress.PostalCode]]</a>


(new) Tracking Number import
This allows you to import a text file of tracking numbers. When a tracking number is imported, the order is marked 'shipped' and an email is sent to the customer with the tracking number. Below is a sample file for your reference. The import page also gives you a fair amount of flexibility in specifying the format of the file. For example, you do not need to include the ship date & time (it will use the current date & time instead). To use this feature, go to the Plugins tab in the Admin and select the Develisys plugin. From here you can click the "Import Tracking #'s" link in the left column.

Code:

Order Number,Tracking Number,Shipped Date
8083,1Z9999W99999999999,2011-04-13 11:42
8082,1Z9999W99999999998,2011-06-23 13:12
8081,1Z9999W99999999997,2011-09-01 15:57
30329,1Z9999W99999999996,2011-05-30 09:26
30330,1Z9999W99999999995,2011-07-11 11:11


(new) Sales by Product Type report
As you might have guess from the name, this report shows the sales by Product Type.

(new) TinyMCE editor
Adds the TinyMCE rich text editor, a much better alternative than the included Free Text Box. Ironically this is the same editor that is included with BV 6. To enable the editor go to Options tab in the admin and click Display from the left-column menu (/BVAdmin/Configuration/AdminDisplay.aspx). Select TinyMCE from the WYSIWYG Editor dropdown.

(new) Search form
This is a replacement for the BV 'search criteria' control (/BVModules/Controls/SearchCriteria.ascx) that is used on the search page. We've simplified the sorting by combining the 'sort by' and 'order by' fields into a single option. This control also supports are new site search engine (details to follow in separate thread). Here's how you install it:

At the top of the /search.aspx page replace this line:
Code:
<%@ Register Src="BVModules/Controls/SearchCriteria.ascx" TagName="SearchCriteria" TagPrefix="uc1" %>

with this:
Code:
<%@ Register Src="BVModules/Controls/DevelisysSearchCriteria.ascx" TagName="SearchCriteria" TagPrefix="uc1" %>


In the /search.aspx.vb file replace this line (around line 50):
Code:
results = Catalog.InternalProduct.StoreSearch(criteria, SessionManager.GetCurrentUserId, False, Pager1.CurrentRow, Pager1.ItemsPerPage, totalRowCount)

with these lines:
Code:

' <DEVELISYS>
If Me.SearchCriteria1.UseDevelisysSearchEngine Then
results = Develisys.Bvc5.SearchEngine.FindProducts(criteria, SessionManager.GetCurrentUserId, False, Pager1.CurrentRow, Pager1.ItemsPerPage, totalRowCount)
Else
results = Catalog.InternalProduct.StoreSearch(criteria, SessionManager.GetCurrentUserId, False, Pager1.CurrentRow, Pager1.ItemsPerPage, totalRowCount)
End If
' <DEVELISYS>


and replace this line (around line 64):
Code:
Protected Sub SearchCriteria1_SearchFired(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As BVModules_Controls_SearchCriteria.SearchCriteriaEventArgs) Handles SearchCriteria1.SearchFired

with this line:
Code:
Protected Sub SearchCriteria1_SearchFired(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As BVModules_Controls_DevelisysSearchCriteria.SearchCriteriaEventArgs) Handles SearchCriteria1.SearchFired ' <DEVELISYS/>


(new) Cart Cleanup
We’ve had so many problems with BV’s cart cleanup process that we wrote our own. This one is significantly faster and only requires changing two lines of code (and no recompiling). If you’re experiencing site slowdowns during the cart cleanup process, give this a shot.

/Global.asax – around line 134
Replace:
Code:
System.Threading.ThreadPool.QueueUserWorkItem(New System.Threading.WaitCallback(AddressOf BVSoftware.Bvc5.Core.Orders.Order.CleanupCarts))

With:
Code:
System.Threading.ThreadPool.QueueUserWorkItem(New System.Threading.WaitCallback(AddressOf Develisys.Bvc5.OrderServices.Order.CleanupCarts))


/BVAdmin/Configuration/Orders.aspx.vb – around line 112
Replace:
Code:
System.Threading.ThreadPool.QueueUserWorkItem(New System.Threading.WaitCallback(AddressOf BVSoftware.Bvc5.Core.Orders.Order.CleanupCarts))

With:
Code:
System.Threading.ThreadPool.QueueUserWorkItem(New System.Threading.WaitCallback(AddressOf Develisys.Bvc5.OrderServices.Order.CleanupCarts))


(new) Fix: Auto-URL Rewriting problem with product images
This fixes the issue explained in the thread below. The problem typically occurs when you are using auto-rewriting with a Product URL prefix of "Products" and you have your product images stored in the /images/products/ folder (or a sub-folder of this folder). The result is that product images will not be displayed.

http://forums.bvcommerce.com/de...lt.aspx?f=78&m=68024

To implement this fix, add the line of code below, denoted with the "<DEVELISYS/>" comment, to the /App_Code/TaskLoader.Custom.vb file. The line of code must be inside the LoadCustomUrlRewritingRules function (this should be near the bottom of the file around line 50).

Code:

Public Shared Sub LoadCustomUrlRewritingRules(ByVal result As Collection(Of Utilities.UrlRewritingRule))
result.Add(New Develisys.Bvc5.Tasks.UrlRewritingRules.PreventUrlPrefixConflicts()) ' <DEVELISYS/>
End Sub

Yup! It does make the assumption that all items in the order are shipped in a single package, however.

For the more adventurous there are some controls included in the toolkit that you can use to build new category templates. One of things we've done with the toolkit is developed several base controls that are used across the toolkit, and our faceted search, to display products. This consistency makes it very easy to style. There are three controls included that display products in a grid, table, or simple list. Each control accepts a collection of Product objects or a DataTable as its data source. You can add a class by using the CssClass property.

DevelisysProductGridDisplay
This is the control that our code uses whenever a product grid is needed. You can set the number of columns in the grid using the "Columns" property. The DevelisysSingleProductDisplay control is used to display each product in the grid. This control is nearly identical to the out-of-the-box SingleProductDisplay control.

DevelisysProductTableDisplay
Not feeling a grid? This control will output a table of products. You can show/hide the SKU and Short Description by using the DisplaySku and DisplayShortDescription properties. Alternating rows are classed uniquely so you can easily create an alternating row style.

DevelisysProductListDisplay
Lastly, if you prefer a simple list of products instead of a grid or table, this is the control for you. Alternating rows are classed uniquely so you can easily create an alternating row style.

This is a new Content Block so it does not replace any previous functionality.

You can just copy the new files over top. Now, if you've made any changes to the toolkit files you will need to merge those changes into the new files.

No, it won't; sorry! Why don't you upgrade to 5.7 (or 5.8)? That will get you the all-important PCI compliance update and all the latest bug fixes. If you don't have a maintenance plan you can always talk to Marcus.

We are using a lot of Aaron's toolkit. We just added the reviews content block to one of our category pages. With a little bit of configuration on our end to hide select stuff from the DevelisysSingleProductDisplay control, it works great. We are also using Aaron's faceted search and Top Sellers content block. Still a lot of work ahead of us but this toolkit really works great and added a lot of value to our site.

I installed the [color=#6c2e19>Develisys]

I also bought the product feed tool and installed that as well. So far I have been very happy with the tool. Worth the investment. Thank you for the industry plug-ins.[/color]

I'm glad i found that you had the TinyMCE editor included in this it has really helped out as I was having issues with the Free Text editor. But, my question is there the ability to add some features to it, specifically "Font Size" & "Align" or would i need to upgrade this?

Yes, if you look at the /BVModules/Editors/TinyMCE/editor.ascx control you'll see where the toolbar options are defined. You'll need to reference the TinyMCE documentation to find out the names of the buttons you want.
