Author's Words

WP App Studio 4.9 introduces WooCommerce connection, custom field support, new image tags to be used in layouts, parameter passing functionality, easy duplication of widget configuration with a quick link and auto-fill of email fields in forms for logged in users.

WooCommerce connection allows integration of WPAS apps with WooCommerce touching products, orders, and my accounts pages. You can create connections with WooCommerce products and orders integrating them to WPAS entities. Once enabled, WooCommerce products and orders are treated as any other WPAS entity. Using this connection, you can create custom apps using WooCommerce as backend. We used this connection in WP Ticket family products to process WooCommerce products or orders related tickets. See the screenshot section.

Custom fields now be displayed using !#custom-attr['Begin Html','Middle Html','End Html']#" tag function in layouts. Once created in edit screen, custom fields can be used in forms and views by users. See this article for details

In this release, we also extended support for thumbnail, medium, large images with direct output of tag. New image tags get image dimensions, alt and caption info from media library. The new tags offer less HTML code writing, get alt, caption, dimension info from media library for better SEO and page loading

Passing of url parameters to form fields help both the user who avoids filling out already known fields and the site owner who controls maintains the data quality of form submissions. Read more on this feature

You can also duplicate widget configuration allowing quick development of widgets targeting different content but using the same layout. Auto-fill of email fields allows logged-in users to submit forms easily. We also improved CSV based imports(Operations screen) allowing dynamic(can be imported from the import file) post statuses, dates.

NEW - We've started up WP App Studio Roadmap in Trello to get better feedback from our users. You can vote for new features, see what we're working on.

What separates WP App Studio from others

  • Creates production ready, commercial grade WordPress plugins
  • WPAS creates custom plugins that do not have any dependencies to any other plugins, frameworks, can work stand-alone or extend each other
  • WPAS allows custom HTML, CSS and JavaScript code in the plugin development
  • WPAS only loads the required libraries for a particular page. There is no mass linking. Every app view can be customized and optimized for performance.
  • WPAS supports both HTML elements and advanced components from well-known open source libraries and frameworks (jQuery UI, Bootstrap etc.)
  • There is a complete separation of PHP code and its design which makes WPAS plugins code agnostic
  • You can purchase plugin designs and create something new or modify them to make your own
  • All WPAS plugins are upgradable like any other WordPress plugin from Plugins page
  • WPAS is very cost-effective. Compare it to custom site or plugin development in terms of resources used and time to market
  • WPAS generated code is compliant with WordPress coding standards, well tested by thousands of users, and continuously improved
