  • Hello, I’m excited to try the new version however, I am running 3.4.7 and the only problem I am having is with confirming addresses via paypal credit card billing address
    matching verification.

    Is there a fix for this or is this improved in the new version?3.5

    Thanks a million!

    Yes this will be in 3.5

    I am using 3.5 and just like the last versions, the category images do not show on the shop page (or any others for that matter). Category thumbnails are turned on – it makes no difference. The images show in the admin panels, but not in the main store… which only presents a textual list of categories.

    I went and revised some code in 3.4.7 to make it happen, I think the code was there, but just not switched ‘on’, and then I made some mods to make it all show up in columns.

    But it is a nuisance that everytime I upgrade, I am probably going to have to go and make these changes – and they will probably only get harder as the code expands :/
