WP e-Commerce 188.8.131.52 is ready for download!
After 3.8.13 upgrade, a lot of our users were alarmed when they see many anonymous users with cryptic names appearing in their WordPress admin Users page. These user accounts are harmless and are used to collect anonymous customer data (such as cart items, shipping / billing locations etc.). However we acknowledge that displaying them in the admin area proved to be confusing and we apologize for the inconvenience.
In this release, we’re taking the first steps to fix the 3 major issues with anonymous customers that our users have:
* Anonymous customers should not be visible in admin UI. * Cronjob to purge anonymous customers doesn't work due to memory issues. * Anonymous cart items are lost after signing in.
In the upcoming releases, we will continue to improve the customer data storage system so that it uses up as little space as possible in your database.
It is extremely important that before you upgrade to WPEC 184.108.40.206, please back up your files and databases. Backup Buddy is our top choice for making backup simple and effortless.
