Close Point approval has been improved! Contributor: Ochanoko / Date: 21 April 2017 / Time: 18:04 (JST/UTC+9) / Post #416 URL

When approval of purchase points is set to "Approve manually" at the Point system page, points can now be approved from the order list.

To approve purchase points from the order list, navigate to the order list at Orders→Manage Orders, and click the little P✓ icon in the Total Amount column for your desired order.

Close Inquiry form changes Contributor: Ochanoko / Date: 24 March 2017 / Time: 11:29 (JST/UTC+9) / Post #415 URL

We’ve changed the format of the inquiry form to match that of custom forms. As a result, we’ve changed some of the embedded tags used in autoreply emails as below:

{Content}: Message contents only
{Question}: Answers to additional questions

{Content}: All submitted information
{Question}: Removed

These changes will take effect on 24 April 2017. Please make sure to update your autoreply emails if you’re using these tags to ensure that the contents of your emails are as you desire.

We have also changed how submitted inquiries are displayed at [Orders]→[Inquiries], as well as relevant CSV fields.

Close Review points improvement Contributor: Ochanoko / Date: 28 February 2017 / Time: 15:22 (JST/UTC+9) / Post #414 URL

We’ve added the functionality to award different numbers of points based on review content. Previously, all types of reviews would receive the same points, but now reviews containing text, images, or videos can be awarded different numbers of points at your discretion.

Numbers of points awarded for reviews can be configured at [Operations]→[Review Settings].

Close SSL changes Contributor: Ochanoko / Date: 28 February 2017 / Time: 14:48 (JST/UTC+9) / Post #413 URL

We have made some changes, with the goal of increasing security, that expand our use of SSL encryption (https:// instead of http://).

SSL pages (registration, checkout, and so on) were previously hosted on ocnk pages rather than your private domain. SSL pages can now be used with private domains by enabling this setting in your Shop Manager at [Basic Settings]→[SSL private domain settings]. This change will be applied to all stores, regardless of settings, on March 14th.

All forum pages have been changed to SSL. We have disabled the display of the sidebar on forum pages, as non-SSL embedded images in the sidebar may not be displayed properly. The sidebar can be reenabled for the forum at [Design]→[SSL pages]. If enabling the sidebar, please ensure that all images it contains use URLs beginning in https://.

Lastly, the external cart can now be added to SSL-encrypted external pages. Existing external cart links are unaffected by this change, but new codes must be acquired in order to create new external cart links, on both SSL and non-SSL pages.
Maybe I'll go home in one hour and then I can make up the two hours I miss tomorrow, along with the three I missed last week.
