Modifications to Existing Features

Now User can Access Robots.txt File that has been added to the Store

Before Release

Previously user could not view/access Robots.txt file that was added to the site.

After Release

  • Now user can easily access Robots.txt file that has been added to the site. In order to access the file, user has to add "/robots.txt" permalink with the store URL. For example, if the store URL is "www.rstore21.varstreet.com", then to access the site's robots.txt file, user has to just type this URL link to "www.rstore21.varstreet.com/robots.txt" in your browser.
  • In order to make changes to the "robots.txt" file, user will have to contact VARStreet support team.
  • Also, now there is provision to add separate robots.txt file for each Store.

Bug Fixes

Incorrect Payment and Shipping Method were being assigned to Contacts created using "Login using Email Domain" Link

Before Release

When new contact was created under a Customer using Email Domain validation method through the store then default payment and shipping method for that Contact was being assigned as per Business rule and not the one set at the Customer Level.

After Release

Now whenever new contact gets created using "Login using Email Domain" link then the system will pull and assign the default payment and shipping method to the Contact assigned at Customer level.

Product Not Showing on Store despite deleting it from exclusion list of Product-based Store Catalog

Before Release

Previously whenever user was deleting the product from exclusion list of product-based store catalog, it was still not visible on store. User had to specifically include the product in product-based store catalog to view it on Store.

After Release

The issue has been fixed. Now whenever user deletes the product from exclusion list of product-based store catalog, it will be immediately visible on Store.

Customer Page was being deleted when header Menu linked to that Page was being deleted from Store

Before Release

Previously when a page that was linked to menu (either header or footer) and if that menu was deleted, then the page would also get deleted.
