The v7.2.1 updater is now available for ASP / PHP.
The following changes have been made...

Please note that you can upgrade from any previous version to the latest version in just one go! You don't have to install all updaters between your version and the current version.

This is a security update and highly recommended for all users of Ecommerce Templates. This also affects the v7.0 and v7.1 updaters and there is an update for those releases also available. This security update only affects the ASP version of the cart.

We prefer not to give details in public, so for those that can't apply the updater fully, please write to vince AT ecommercetemplates DOT com

The v7.2 release is now the Advanced Release line and new features will be added to this version. v7.1 is now the Stability Release and will only get bug and security fixes from now on.

v7.2 now includes the ability to repurpose the Product Detail page for Articles, producing the correct markup for consumption by Google. Writing informative Articles about your products or area of expertise can be an excellent way to generate content for search engines that ranks. After setting an item as an Article in the product admin pages a different page layout can be used, $articlepagelayout. If not set the default for an article will be...
The Product Name will become the Article Name and the product SKU will be used to set the Author.
A requirement of an Article is that the publisher is set, and that can be done via a parameter in the includes.asp/php file, for instance...

publisher="<div class=""articlepublisher"" itemprop=""publisher"" itemscope itemtype="""">" & _
"<div itemprop=""logo"" itemscope itemtype=""""><meta itemprop=""url"" content=""""></div>" & _
"<meta itemprop=""name"" content=""Your Company Name""></div>"

$publisher='<div class="articlepublisher" itemprop="publisher" itemscope itemtype="">
<div itemprop="logo" itemscope itemtype=""><meta itemprop="url" content=""></div>
<meta itemprop="name" content="Your Company Name"></div>';

Other changes for v7.2

The Amazon Pay Button is now displayed on the first cart page.

Coupons can now be created / uploaded via the CSV upload system.

There is now a Quick Update feature on the discounts / coupons admin page to quickly delete these discounts.

There have been several improvements to the Image Upload feature. In the ASP version there have been changes to make the uploading of images more efficient so that larger image files can be uploaded.

Additional classes have been added for the Page Bar Numbering on the products pages allowing for easier changes to the numbering system.

Previously for the Mailing List Unsubscribe link this was tagged on to the end of the email. Now an optional unsubscribe parameter can be included which is "%unsubscribe%". This can be used to insert the unsubscribe link wherever you like in the email and can be used more than once to create clickable HTML links. If included the parameter is detected so the unsubscribe link is not added to the end of the email.

The total weight including the option weight difference is now included in the admin orders page line items. This information is not included in any of the printable receipts or packing slips.

The products page div.products now doesn't encompass the page bar numbering.

The initialpackweight / $initialpackweight parameter now doesn't apply to Price Based Shipping.

Support for the parameter nosearchprodid=TRUE / $nosearchprodid=TRUE; has been added to exclude the product id from the fields searched in a product search.

Support for the UK Royal Mail tracking system has been included in the tracking page.

The necessary changes have been page for PHP 7.4
The cart links to the product are now based on the original product id rather than the alternate product id.

The checkout step markup is now defined in the ectcart.css file thereby allowing for it to be removed or replaced.
