SureCart 2.11.3: Greater Control

Normally we don’t have an announcement for point releases, but this point release brings a UI change as well as new settings for power users.

As we try to make SureCart more intuitive, one of the pain points we have seen consistently in our help desk is when a merchant deletes an important page needed by SureCart.

To compensate for this and add some extra conveniences, we have added a few sub menu items that will take you to these important pages, and it will also display if there are any issues with those pages.

This is going to add convenience, reduce clicks, and reduce support requests.

However, for our OG power users, they may not like this. Not to fear, we have you in mind, we have added some toggles in the settings for you guys and gals.


  • Improvement: Update SureCart menu to include shop, checkout, dashboard pages.
  • Improvement: Automatic integration with RankMath Sitemaps.


  • Fix: Issue with Spectra saving when inline CSS setting is used.
  • Fix: Responsive issue with plan actions on customer dashboard.
  • Fix: Properly handle error if WordPress user exists when creating customer on admin.
  • Fix: Issue with HUF currency.

SureCart 2.10: Focused On Accessibility

We are pleased to announce SureCart 2.10, which brings extensive accessibility improvements to all SureCart stores.

During this rapid release cycle turning SureCart into a full-fledged ecommerce platform, we made the misjudgment to address accessibility in these new capabilities after we finished releasing the features.

This past August, we realized that, if we had to do it over again we would do it differently and sought out a professional accessibility audit of SureCart.

Our team then worked diligently through all the recommendations.

This update brings extensive accessibility enhancements and the team really paid attention to all the tiny details.

For example, the coupon field, tabbing into it, entering a coupon code, and being able to clear the coupon before proceeding.

Another example, the voice-over for the product list when a user adds a product filter, it will announce how many results for users of screen readers, indicating to the user that the results are present on the page.

Also, when the slide out cart appears, it will be announced for the voice-over for users of screen readers, and the user can tab to the close icon or can hit the escape key.

These are just examples of the level of detail the team has gone to in order to make SureCart fully navigable via a keyboard and screen readers.

Now that this release is out, we will seek out another professional unbiased 3rd party audit and a VPAT that will be published on our website.

We are committed to making SureCart the most accessible ecommerce platform out of the box and will ensure all new developments go through a detailed accessibility audit before being released.


  • Improvement: Keyboard and screen reader accessibility of customer-facing UI.
  • Improvement: Make Stripe Payment Element the new default for the Stripe processor.
  • Improvement: Show a notice if Gutenberg plugin is active as this plugin is experimental.


  • Fix: Ensure SureCart column block does not get top margin in editor.
  • Fix: Dark theme not applying to shipping choices on checkout page.
  • Fix: Apostrophe being displayed as HTML entity instead of plain text on State/Province selector.
  • Fix: Setting a password did not consider a “-” as a special character.
