  • New Performance Settings: Image Lazy Loader and Page Pre-loading

    These are new settings available in performance in the general settings. Just like the Amp settings, they were unannounced. Does anyone have details?

      We are not seeing the issues you describe though of the ones you list, we only use the product multiple images.

      There appears to have been two updates. We were on 9.1.16 for quite a while but at some point in the last couple of days ago went to 9.1.18. Does anyone know the details of these updates?

      3dCart should really provide this information, send out emails and post in the forum. It is not a good policy to have merchants discover features and fixes by accident, which is how we came across these new settings. There isn't any documentation in the knowledge base. Also, the product roadmap shows the wrong status information.

        Yesterday. Something went wrong with my site. All products had a error 404. Nothing worked. Put in a ticket to tech support with the admins, and was fixed quickly, but still. 3dcart needs to update us before and update comes out so we know what to expect. They need to test it first before releasing it. You add something...then breaks a few others parts that is costing us time/money. Not good to have customers waiting to place an order and you cant because of errors or 404's. Im on the 9.1.18 as well.

          Yesterday, the admin went into error mode after clicking the categories link. After logging back in we noticed the 9.1.18 upgrade. The error was temporary and may have been related to the upgrade.

          Perhaps, Gonzalo will weigh in on this issue. Maybe there have always been blind updates but 3dCart used to be better at communicating changes. There have been a quite a number of unannounced changes in the past 3 years but because merchants don't have knowledge of them we miss the opportunity to immediately take advantage of improvements or quickly report problems.

          By searching the web, we have found some information on Image Lazy Loader and Page Pre-loading, however, an explanation should come from 3dCart because its their implementation. What exactly are these features supposed to do? Do these features affect other features?

            Agreed, one change I noticed recently is that the Amazon Pay payment method is now listed in my store as "Amazon Pay - Legacy". Turns out there is now a second Amazon Pay method which can be activated in the payment options. But without any documentation, I have no idea what the differences are, if there are any new features that would be worth updating for, or if the Legacy version is being removed eventually which would require replacement.

              Yesterday, we had an order paid using Amazon Payments but did not receive an order notification so we sent in a ticket. We suggested that the problem could be an issue with Amazon Payments and the upgrade to 9.1.18 but had not yet checked to see if there were any changes to Amazon Payments -- Thanks for the heads-up. We noticed the Amazon Legacy showing as the payment method for the last few orders paid this way but haven't had time to look into it.

              This is a good example demonstrating the need for 3dCart to improve the communications.

                If you hover over the info icon it explains lazy loader and pre-loading.

                  Holy crap the pre-loading is amazing. Well done 3d...but yes knowing about these new features would be great. Simple notification through the beamer widget would be perfect

                    They just added this information to the icons within the last day. We checked several times. In addition to the widget, all new features and all updates should be announced via email, blog, and forum posts. The product roadmap should be immediately updated as well as the knowledge base.

                    It will be interesting to see if these features affect Google Search Console Speed Report, especially the desktop pages.

                      Hello everyone,

                      Our apologies for the delay on the release notes.

                      We actually stopped deploying new items during Q4 2019 (which is something we've done for a while now), in order to avoid releasing a bunch of new things right before the holidays.

                      Due to this deployment delay, we had quite a few items completed and ready to go out. The regular deployment process is back now, so you will likely notice some new features added in the coming weeks. We are working on a FULL release notes for these changes as well as a few other features that will be making it on the next update. We'll post these to the usual announcements section when complete.

                      Thank you for your patience.

                        also just noticed the "Flyout Cart" on the Setttings - Desigh page -- nice feature but needs a "continue shopping" button next to the "Checkout" button - the "X" at the top is hard to see (at least in my template).

                          Oddly, on my store, the flyout cart is rounding up to the next whole dollar

                            I have noticed at least one of my sales tax codes not applying to orders when it should be. Has anyone seen this issue after the latest update? I'm on 9.1.19 now.

                              Hi everyone.

                              As promised, the release notes for everything that's been added since 9.1.0 are available in the announcements page

                              I didn't notice any changes made to the tax system in 9.1.19 while researching the release notes, but of course anything's possible.
                              Please reach out to support so we can get a ticket open and investigate this for you.

                              Thanks!
