Phoca Cart 5.0.0 Beta (Joomla 5) - call for beta testers

Post by H13 » Thu Feb 22, 2024 3:01 pm


One of the latest 5.0.0 Beta versions of Phoca Cart has been released. It is expected to be released soon as a Release Candidate version and then a Stable version.

It would be great if you could help us with testing to speed up the release of the Stable version

What's new in version 5.0.0:

- Dark theme support
- Advanced product batch processing
- Watermark and AVIF support (Supported formats: JPG, PNG, WEBP, AVIF)
- SQL query optimization (Optimized for large number of items (tens of thousands of products, thousands of categories, hundreds of thousands of orders))
- Multilanguage

Supported multilingual features:
- Phoca Cart Core Multilanguage (NEW)
- Joomla Core Multilanguage
- Falang
- Multilanguage CK
- n3t Language Filter (NEW)

- Back in Stock Notification

- 3 New Cassiopeia Child Templates, YOOtheme Pro 4.3 Support (Supported template frameworks: YOOtheme, Gantry, Helix, T4, Sparky, ...)

In this release, the new multi-language feature needs to be tested the most

Just turn on Joomla multilanguage plugins (or modules) and in Phoca Cart settings turn on multilanguage feature. Then you can enter products and other items in multiple languages.

How to set up a full ecommerce site can be found in this article: Create an e-commerce website using Joomla and Phoca Cart or this video:

The new 3 child Cassiopeia templates (Toys, Beauty, Furniture) can be used for testing. They can be downloaded here: ... -templates

You can download the latest Phoca Cart 5.0.0 Beta version here: ... -component

If you have already tested Phoca Cart 5.0.0 Beta, you need to check the database when installing this version. (There is no automatic update of database tables or columns between different Beta versions - changes can be seen in the file: administrator/components/com_phocacart/update/sql/mysql/5.0.0.sql).

If you have any questions or need to report feedback or report a bug, please use this forum or the Phoca Forum

Thank you.
