Hotcakes 1.8.3 Released

Hotcakes staff relaxing after another awesome release!

Our team is heads-down, working hard on our next release right now.  We always have great things planned - and you can definitely look forward to some "sexy" new features to be released in the near future.  In the meantime though, we know that you need to get some of those pesky bugs squashed.  We know how you feel.  This release will fix most of the outstanding issues that we know about.  

By the way, if you're enjoying your Hotcakes, please feel free to give us a review or email us a testimonial.


As always, please test your upgrades on a development version of your site first. Be sure to back-up prior to upgrade, and merge anynoted viewset changes as desired. We are not responsible for any Hotcakes that get spilled on the floor.

Viewset Changes

In the very least, you should always review the Cart, Checkout, CSS, and JavaScript updates when there are any. These are areas that can directly affect how well your store is performing.
