Virtuemart Product Slideshow 1.015 Released
Pleased to announce the release of Virtuemart Product Slideshow version 1.015. This fixes issues with encoded ampersands in url and contains minor changes to improve usability. It is recommended to update your slideshow especially on sites with non-SEF URLs.
New Feature: Generation of search engine friendly product fly page URLs are now optional. Turn ON/OFF by setting "Search Engine Friendly URLs" under SEO settings in Global Configuration. Note that non-SEF product fly page URLs are automatically redirected to SEF URL counterparts when using sh404SEF Joomla! SEF extension.
Updates on this release:
- 2009-03-11: Removed forced URL processing using JRoute and made SEF product URL generation optional.
- 2009-03-11: Output absolute product fly page URL so it would open correctly when product image is clicked on a slideshow running inside category pages regardless of SEF settings.
- 2009-03-11: Disabled encoding of ampersands so product fly page URLs would work correctly in Opera and Firefox when SEF is off.
Important: Updating to this version should not cause problems with existing running product slideshows on your Joomla!/Virtuemart web site.
