    Default 4.1.0 Released - New minor feature release

    Version 4.1.0 is now available for download in the client area of our site. It has a few pretty big new features in it, like the new image uploader page, new "lightbox" view for images, recurring billing on certain payment gateways, plus a plethora of minor features. See the release notes for more info.

    Do NOT attempt to update if your Support & Updates service has expired! See the first release note for the full details.

    Refer to this post for more information on our version number schema, and specifically what we mean when we say that this is a "Minor Feature Release".

    Who Should Update
    Anyone wanting to keep up to date with the latest and greatest stuff should, that's who!

    This this is a minor feature release, the update process is fairly painless if you are currently using Geo 4.0. The one change that some will need to make, is to add new CSS the the main CSS file (by default, geostyle.css) for the new Lightbox view for images. For instructions on that, use the full update instructions and it will give you the exact CSS that needs to be added.

    Code modifications: As always, if you have any PHP code modifications, to update you will need to re-apply those changes after you update, and custom code modifications are not supported in the helpdesk system. Keep this in mind when deciding whether you want to update or not.

    Addon Developers: We now have developer-oriented "changes to note" geared toward external Addon developers, see changes to note in the developer section of the wiki for that.

    Template FILE modifications: I'm referring to using a custom template set with changes to system or module templates, located in the geo_templates/ directory, not changes to the main templates. For such modifications, see this page for notes on changes to those template files in the new versions. Also follow the updating tips in Customizing System or Module Templates for the smoothest update possible when there are customized system/module templates at stake.

    High traffic sites For high traffic sites, it is recommended to first test the update on a test location, so that the update on the live site is as seamless as possible.

    Software Update Cost
    If you have purchased the software within the last year, this will be a free software update. If you are outside of your 1 year of downloads, or are not sure, contact the sales department at to get a free price quote.

    Geo Client Area
    If you do not have an account to log into the client area, you will need to be added to our new client area in order to download the new version. Send the following details to when you are requesting the software update:
    First Name:
    Last Name:
    USA State:
    Non-USA Province:
    Zip / Postal Code:
    E-mail Address:
    Release Notes:

    Read the release notes for information on new features and bug fixes in the linked page.

    Changed Files:
    • ./* (most files)

    We do not provide a changed file list for feature releases, as the number of changed files makes it impractical.

    Update Instructions:
    Perform the update as specified in the User Manual.

    Example Addon:
    The Example Addon is used by developers as a starting point and as "working documentation" to build 3rd party addons.

    The Example Addon is now updated for Geo 4.0, the example addon version 2.1 is the one to use for Geo 4.1 versions.

    You can get the example addon (instructions may change):
    1. Purchase the example addon (for free) in the cart, by logging into the client area, and viewing the details of an enterprise order, find the link that says "Buy new addons, support and upgrade packages" and click on it.
    2. Go to the order details page for the order you just purchased.
    3. There should be a download for the example addon on this page.

    If you have any problems, start a support ticket, or post a reply to this thread.

    • Troubleshooting will be located in the tools available in the support section of our site, the main resource being the updates user manual. Currently there are no troubleshooting tips specifically for this release.

    Problems with Paypal "security checks" found:

    In 4.1.0 the Paypal payment gateway has a "false positive" problem on one of the security checks (checks that are done to make sure the signal received indicating a Paypal payment, is in fact a valid IPN signal and not a hacking attempt). This false positive results in the IPN signal not properly marking orders as "paid" when the signal is received.

    This will be fixed in 4.1.1, until that version is released, either contact Geo support to receive the fix, or apply the fix as described below:

    As always, be sure to back up any PHP files before making changes.

    Open the file classes/payment_gateways/paypal.php
    Find the line:
    PHP Code:
    if ($transaction->get('custom') != $custom) { 
    Change it to:
    PHP Code:
    if ($transaction->get('custom') != $custom && false) {
