After successfully completing the Hack Month, a new version of Dokan is knocking at the door. It will bring a lot of new fixes and tweaks. In this article, we will talk about the new features that will make Dokan Multivendor Marketplace more awesome.
Crop store images
Now, you can crop your store banner image, profile picture, and gravatar to fit as you want. In the previous version, there was no option for cropping these images. Thus, the photos uploaded didn't fit the screen. With this new feature, your banner and profile images will be best fitted to the screen. You will get this option on,
Seller Dashboard →settings→store settings.
Option for selecting extra shipping cost recipient
In the admin area, a new option has been created for extra shipping fee. Now, you can choose who will get this additional fee for shipping and tax. There are two recipients- admin and seller, in the list. You can select one from them.
This option is available on WP Dashboard → Dokan → Settings → General
Dokan shortcode manager
Shortcodes are very handy when publishing a content within Dokan. But they are very difficult to remember. With the new version of Dokan, you don't have to memorize the shortcodes. You can easily get them from post pages. You will see the Dokan logo on the toolbar. After clicking it, you will see all the shortcodes and use them when required.
