Version 1.6.4/5 Release Notes, New Affiliate Program

Cardinal Locator version 1.6.4 was released a few days ago, followed by a quick hotfix patch with version 1.6.5 to revert one of the 1.6.4 changes due to an unforeseen new zooming related bug. In development for a few months, version 1.6.4 included a variety of fixes that came up in support tickets in addition to a couple of minor new features. A few callouts include fixes related to the new filter disabling functionality, a bug fix related to new WooCommerce functionality where no locations were output, a fix related to Polylang detection while on PHP version 8.0+, and a fix for a bug relating to the use of Advanced Custom Fields to handle custom location metadata. Also, with the rollout of WordPress version 6.3, Cardinal Locator’s PHP version requirement has been updated to 7.0 to match the new WordPress core requirement. It’s always recommended to use the latest versions of languages and software.
