10/23/06 – New ECP enhancements for catalog administrators and developers!

“Remember me” functionality has been added to the ECP Login page to speed logins for ECP developers.

It is recommended that the user give due consideration to security before deciding to use this feature.

This option modifies both the Billing & Shipping addresses in the CartCheckout
page to eliminate potential confusion in a B2B environment.
If the "Use B2B Cart Layout" check box is not checked, (the default setting),
then the CartCheckOut fields remain in the standard format that mirrors the
layout in EZZ:
Address Line 1:
Address Line 2:
If the check box is checked, then the Attention line comes first, and is
labeled "Name", while the
Name line comes next, labeled "Company":
Address Line 1:

Two features have been modified to support "anyone can browse, but you must
login to order" shopping. First, the General Access flag (in EZZ) is now
checked when the shopper attempts to go to the CartCheckOut. If the
shopper is not logged in, he is redirected to the Login Page. Also, an

Encryption" label underneath.

verification. This form looks best, but requires FLASH support on the
4/06/06 – CSS implementation modified.
The CSS style sheet that was formerly built into the
Quikey Software Solutions OnLine Store section of each page in the catalog has been broken out into a separate file.
This change has the benefit of reducing the file size of each webpage in the
catalog, while making it possible for even customized pages to conform to
changes to the CSS-based "look-and-feel" without manual intervention.
4/06/06 – Publishing process modified.
The Publishing process has been redesigned to minimize impact on live shopping. The new system builds the catalog in a "staging" area and then copies the content to the live catalog at the very end of publishing.
This will nearly eliminate the possibility of prematurely starting a catalog - the culprit of $0 pricing and other unwanted side effects!
