2/12/2014 Update!

WooCommerce 2.1.1 fix release is now available.

Among other fixes, this release includes:

  1. All endpoints, shop pages, category pages and other pages resulting in 404 errors after the 2.1 update will now have their permalinks flushed correctly. This solves all the issues with pages not loading.
  2. Fixed all language country codes to reflect WordPress standards, so all translations will work again.
  3. Fixed issues where stock status wasn’t properly set so new products didn’t show on archive pages.
  4. Fixed when add_to_cart is called, ensure the correct product_id is set for variations.

    First I want to tell you I really like the theme you designed, it really is plug and play.
    Now like a newb, i already upgraded and i got a notice that said:
    Your theme has bundled outdated copies of WooCommerce template files…. etc.
    Should I unistall a 2.1 and re install the older version?
    How can I fix this?
    Thanks /Louis

      Hey Louis,

      I’m glad that you like our theme!

      Now that you upgraded WooCommerce 2.1 the best would be to wait for the arrival of the new theme version because WC has altered your database and it is possible that your previous settings and widgets will not come back with the downgrade to 2.0.

      We are working right now to make all of our themes WooCommerce 2.1 compatible.

    Thanks Milan, for very quick response.
    I am lucky that I did it in my local environment so no crucial problems to worry about.
    Let this be a warning to everyone don’t update your WooCommerce plugin yet.
    Looking forward to the update. /Louis

    Well done everybody! I see that we have not been the only one having difficulties with the large amount of changes in WooCommerce 2.1, and it’s great to see that other developers work hard to improve the selection of themes and products available for such ecommerce platform, even when that involves dealing with the new quirks. :)
