The following updates were applied to the Website Forge system this Sunday.
1) Fancy Zooming feature. In a Layout Builder frame (for the Ecommerce and Ad modules) a “Zooming” parameter for an Image field has been added. If it’s set to "Yes", the user will be allowed to see enlarged portions of the image while moving the mouse over it. For this to work, an image must be large enough to see all details. Also, the Image field itself must be set up to show a smaller version of the image (by setting the field’s Width and Height parameters) and the zoom window will display portions of the image at it’s original size.
2) USPS has been upgraded to the newest version of their API. USPS domestic and international methods can now be configured to use different types and sizes of packages (different kinds of Flat Rate Boxes, Envelopes etc.) to fine tune the calculation.
Also, the "Add International Methods" button was added to the Shipping Conditions/Methods form for users who wish to add international shipping.
3) The “FreightQuote” calculation engine has been added. To enable it, you need to add FreightQuote under a shipping condition using the Add Method button in the “Shipping Conditions/Methods” section and configure its parameters according to the type of goods being shipped. Note that FreightQuote is not a general-purpose shipping service like UPS/FedEx/etc., but is used to calculate shipping items of large size and dimensions via different freight companies.
4) Publish notifications have been updated to include an HTML link to the published version of your website.
