What’s new in version 3.1:

  • Fixed bugs in mysql queries
  • The file structure of the module has been changed. It is related to restrictions of the opencart 3 modules installer. The new structure is more consistent with opencart concept.
    If you made some changes in the controller or the model, you should repeat them in new files. If you edited twig/tpl templates, you can just copy old files into the new position.
