As you may be aware there is a major point upgrade release (2.0) due on 4th March for WooCommerce – see details here on the WooCommerce site.

NB: Please do not manually upgrade any of your WooCommerce sites to the new version.

There are reported to be numerous likely bugs/issues with existing WooCommerce Themes and the new WooCommerce Core. We at AKIS will upgrade all our client sites in the usual way, but only once we have confirmation (or requisite patches/upgrades) from the Theme authors on sites where we use WooCommerce that their themes works fine with the new version.

If you have any questions in advance, or after the upgrade, please contact us in the usual way.

04 MARCH UPDATE (From WooCommerce Website):

Before you update to WooCommerce 2.0

Before you update your live website to WooCommerce 2.0, please use a test environment for all your testing. You can use the test environment as a sandbox to simulate the update and make sure your website will continue to work after you update it to WooCommerce 2.0.

We know you all are eager to start using this new version, but this is a big update, so please take your time and make sure that you prepare your website properly.

After holding our hourly rate charge at £25.00 for many years, this has now increased to £28.50 as of February 2013 and all work charged on an hourly rate rather than fixed priced basis will now be subject to this new rate.

We have a dedicated “off-network” Support Helpdesk website to provide uninterrupted server status information, announcements and support on AKIS Hosting matters at akishelpdesk.co.uk.

Support requests should be via our Support Request Page for the best service, but before doing so, if your request relates to “site down” or “email down” type issues please first check the ‘Hosting Announcements’ and ‘Server Status’ pages as your issue may already be known and a fix being worked on.  Please also remember we do not offer telephone tech support.
