standarized notifications for extension updates
« on: September 22, 2014, 01:14:16 PM »
A suggestion for improving notifications that impact cart functionality.  The recent necessity (2nd time this year) for the USPS extension to be updated to work on the latest version from USPS  is the cause of this suggest.

For at least the extensions that come with the cart install I would like to see a Notification section located at the top of the board when there is an update that is necessary for the extension to work.  It should list the extension, the effective date, and if it applies to different versions of Abantecart,  etc.

The extensions connecting to payments and shipping will have updates from time to time, if there was one place we could check for our applied extensions to see if there is an update needed  would be much better than having customers tells something in our cart isn't working. 

And if extensions provided thru the extensions store - at least posted a notice that there was an update to their extension that would really make it a valuable section to monitor.

Thanks for considering.
