A new version of Pizazz is out, and it’s about time! I’ve been delaying this for quite awhile. I’ve added two requested features.
The first one was requested a long time ago, but I deprioritized it because the person had edited a few lines of code and got a workable result. What he wanted was for Pizazz to support selection between Zazzle’s target countries. This is used when querying price information to figure out the units by locality. I’ve added a global setting, and now you can display your stores in Yen and Monopoly Money (Canadian dollars)!
The other feature is just a checkbox/shortcode option: the ability to hide the “See More” button. I have few guesses as to why exactly someone would want to do this (perhaps if everything’s already visible in their site?), but it was requested and required very little modification to the code base. Of course, “See More” will remain visible by default.
So that’s that. I’ve also verified that it works with the newest WordPress (3.5.1 as of March 13, 2013), and that’s always good. The update isn’t vital unless you need those new features, as there are no outstanding bugs that had to be fixed.
Before I go, I would like to give out a little PSA. If you get a message saying that the “query did not return any products,” it means that there is literally nothing with the keywords you specified (or, at least, not in your store if you filled in that field). You can verify this by searching Zazzle with the same keywords. If Zazzle pops up with something anyway, then something went horribly wrong. The most likely scenario is that their RSS feeds are down (which happens surprisingly often), but if it persists for more than a few hours than there might be a bug in Pizazz. If so, don’t hesitate to contact me!
