Avatar for d.semenov
release notes

In these Icecat Release Notes 124, we discuss a product import fix, support of special characters in Vendor Central, and file upload. Furthermore, we highlight a smart reduction of the daily index file and changed Philips tooltips on the product page. Please, find here the previous Icecat Release Notes 123.

New import rule for product processing

Import creates imported products with nbsp symbols. These products do not resolve to the correct products. We now have detected all those products and filtered out all nbsp symbols.

Fixed special symbols issue in product owner field

Characters that contain &, #, or + symbols could not be selected in the Owner dropdown on the product creation page. When searching a user with those special symbols, the dropdown became empty. This issue is now fixed.

File upload not possible on matching

The Icecat file upload system did not accept a matching file with unexpected symbols. We fixed it by adding these to our system.

Locale issue in daily index files

The daily index files contained products that were updated only for one locale. The index file should not contain such products. We added the needed filter.

Changed Philips by Signify tooltip on product page

There are multiple Philips brands in our system as there are multiple brand licensees. For example, Philips itself versus Philips by Signify, which can have the same brand logo and brand name for commercial purposes. Still, they need to be clearly distinguished and identified in the case of brand rank statistics. We resolved it by showing the international, full string, when it is about statistics. See the example brand tooltip below.

All mapped products will show their alternative MPNs on product page in the “alternative” block
