We have always been committed to providing a seamless and engaging shopping experience for both merchants and customers. In line with this commitment, we are excited to introduce the latest update to our Brick Lane theme, version 1.2.0. This update brings a range of new features, updates, and fixes to enhance your store's performance and aesthetics. Let's dive into the details of what's new in Brick Lane 1.2.0.

Align Content or Offset the Layout

We understand the importance of having a unique and visually appealing online store. With the Brick Lane 1.2.0 update, we have introduced a new feature that allows you to align content or offset the layout. This means you can now fine-tune the placement of your website's elements to create a layout that perfectly suits your brand and style.

Improved Functionality

To keep up with the latest technology trends, we have upgraded the theme's Webpack to version 5. This update ensures compatibility with Node 18, providing a smoother and more efficient performance for your BigCommerce store.

We have replaced the AddThis component with provider sharing links, making it easier for your customers to share products and content across various social media platforms. This update enhances the social sharing capabilities of your online store.

To provide a more accurate representation of your product discounts, we've made adjustments to the way sale tags are generated. This improvement ensures that your customers can easily identify discounted items, boosting your sales.

Seamless Shopping Experience

We are committed to delivering a seamless shopping experience for your customers. In this update, we've addressed several issues that were affecting user experience:

The default product sorting on search pages was not working correctly in the previous version. With this update, your customers can now easily find the products they're looking for, improving navigation and user satisfaction.

Security is paramount in e-commerce, and we've resolved the Recaptcha issue on the password reset page, ensuring the safety of your customers' accounts.

We understand the importance of a clear and professional appearance. The issue of the store logo being blurry has been rectified, enhancing your brand's image.

PayPal Credit banners now appear correctly in all regions, ensuring that your customers are aware of payment options available to them.

The additional checkout buttons now display correctly in all regions, improving the checkout process for your customers.
