Excited to announce that Pantheon, a high performance hosting platform is now supported in CoCart Lite 2.8.1 which is now publicly available! This is a tiny release so everything is backwards compatible with the previous version.
As always, it is recommend to create a backup of your site before updating.
What does it do?
Well because Pantheon is a platform built for speed, it’s cache system caused a problem for guest customers on the frontend making it look like the cart was empty no matter how many items were added to the cart.
Luckily, this was a quick easy fix after talking to their customer service.
All that was required was to change the cookie name using the available filter in CoCart to a new formatting that Pantheon reorganizes to prevent the session cookie from caching.
And after trying them out, I can say that I recommend using Pantheon for speedy performance to run your store no matter how large.
This release does not introduce any changes to the database.
