Default Warehouse 23 Updates

This thread is to track and announce new features, bug fixes, and over all improvements of the store. So, please keep conversation to a minimum.

As a reminder -- if you do find a bug, please submit them to our bug reporting system.

New Feature
  • You can now download your digital files directly from your order page. (After confirmation.) You can also go into your past orders, and download the files there.

Fixed
  • No download link with free orders -- If you purchased a free download like Munchkin Thingies, there was a glitch that was not creating the links for downloads. This is now working properly. Please note, this was only a glitch between the times of April 8th 4pm Central to April 9th 12pm Central.

Downloads
  • For now we have removed pagination on the the "My Downloads" page. What's this mean? It means all of your downloads can be found on one page.
  • We have also removed the ability to rate your products from this page. This is a temporary measure while we work on speeding things up further.
  • Sorting your downloads by name and order number has also been added.

Update
  • New product flags have been uploaded. The new ones are much smaller. There is also new flag called "Book", if the product has both digital and physical variants it will appear under the "Digital" flag. Otherwise, normal physical products do not have flags (Unless of course it's New.).
  • Longer titles on product pages. This will reduce the amount of truncation to product titles.

Fixed
  • If you are purchasing free items (and only free items) you now bypass the cart, and get an auto-completion. Unless of course you are not logged in. In which case you are prompted to log in or continue as a guest. But... then you by pass the cart to the Order Completion page.

Update
  • The "My Downloads" page is now faster! It will become faster after your initial load. Any load there after is MUCH faster. So fast... I'll even tell you some boring numbers. I have a library size of 417 products and my original page load was over 20 seconds. My new page load time is 2.19 seconds (After my first page load). That's almost 10 times faster!

Update
  • You now see more Taxons / Game Types on browse pages by default
  • The W23 News feed has changed. And the home page now features the Steve Jackson Games Illuminator!
  • Secret back end stuff that will be revealed soon.

Note: I am personally going through all the products on our store to make sure they are labeled and categorized properly. So, if you see things move around a little bit, that's the reason.

UPDATE
  • File names (downloads) are now with underscores instead of spacing, and they reflect the title of the item purchased. For a little while they had spaces. Sorry about that.
  • Contributors* have been added to product pages.
  • Contributors* are now searchable.
    • This also updates the Advanced Search.
  • You can now save an address from the cart!
  • Other misc. back-end improvements.

UPDATE
  • Search algorithms improved. The results of searches should be more relevant to the search terms, and presented in a more intuitive order now. Minor adjustments to search scoring may be applied in the coming days to further refine results.

Feature
  • Larger Images! If you click on a cover, it will open up a larger image viewer.
  • Now you can Click the thumbnail and it will select the correct product! What's this mean? If you click on the thumbnail on a multi-product page, and that thumbnail is linked to a product. That product, will then get selected for you!

It's been awhile since we have done any public updates, but, don't worry, we have been updating Warehouse 23 constantly since launch. Except on the weekends. We like to sleep.

FIXED
  • Hide / Show Digital works! (Again)
  • Shipping - Further integration with out shipping partners to get better quotes and more options.

UPDATE
  • Various Secret Updates for the back end.
  • Fixed how some URLs handle requests.
  • File Names now deal with special characters better
  • Survey Launched - If you place an order, you are invited to take our survey!

We also upgraded a key component of our site (Which is why there was a little bit of down time.) I can't say too much as it's really more of a 'back-end' upgrade. But, it will make peoples jobs easier, and also open up Warehouse 23 to some really cool possibilities in the future (Like super secret FNORD and being able to FNORD FNORD from the public).
