paGO Commerce 1.1 Released With All-New Back-End

paGO Commerce 1.1.1 features an all-new back-end

Since releasing paGO Commerce in January of this year, we’ve been hard at work on the next steps along our roadmap. We created paGO Commerce  to alleviate the headaches created by many mainstream commerce platforms. Above all, our focus was on creating a more future proof, modular codebase, that didn’t leave developers at a dead-end, forced to hack the core in order to make even the most basic changes. With paGO commerce, you can bend it any way you want. It’s flexible, and it’s fast.

This new double release of paGO Commerce (1.1 and its followup, 1.1.1) sets the tone for our rapid development schedule for paGO Commerce. This development round’s focus was on improving the “back-end” workflow for store owners, in order to make it faster and easier than ever to manage inventory and product attributes. Following the advice of many of our early adopters to paGO Commerce for Joomla, we made substantial improvements to the Admin Panel, along with a host of other improvements, which I listed below.

Free Joomla Extension Called paGO Takes Flight

paGO Commerce is a new Joomla extension for e-commerce, from 'corePHP'

paGO Commerce is a new free Joomla! extension for e-commerce, launched by ‘corePHP’ to replace antiquated VirtueMart 

paGO Commerce is a free Joomla extension for e-commerce, launched by ‘corePHP’ to replace an aging and antiquated Joomla extension known as VirtueMart. It took ‘corePHP’ over four years to develop paGO Commerce, a free Joomla extension that launched just a few short months ago.

The ‘corePHP’ team members got the idea for paGO Commerce from Joomla users and customers while exhibiting at the CMS Expo, almost five years ago, where I was co-host of the event, in Chicago.  While the Joomla CMS was (and is) on the upswing, frustration among Joomla developers was high, as there was a vacuum for a truly “professional grade” Joomla extension for e-commerce, so it became rather challenging for the Joomla fans (including me!) to boast of all Joomla’s capabilities, without a solid e-commerce solution in place at the time.
