Enhancements


Typeahead Implementation For Multi-Select Attribute Type

Administration

Admin users can now search and select multiple values for multi-select attribute type fields. This modification to attribute type fields has enhanced the multiple selection functionality.

To implement multi-select typeahead, the following new files were introduced:-

  • TypeaheadClient.cs, ITypeaheadClient.cs, TypeaheadEndpoint.cs and Znode.Engine.Api.Models in Znode.Engine.Api.Client module
  • TypeaheadListResponse.cs, TypeaheadRequestModel.cs, TypeaheadResponselistModel.cs and TypeaheadResponseModel.cs in Znode.Engine.Api.Models
  • TypeaheadService.cs, Znode.Admin.Core*, TypeaheadAgent.cs, ITypeaheadAgent.cs, TypeaheadController.cs, Znode.Api.Core*, TypeaheadController.cs, Znode.Libraries.ECommerce.Utilities*, ZnodeTypeAheadEnum, Znode.WebStore.Core* and Znode.Engine.Admin.Scripts*

Also, a new extension method FastSelectFor was added in Typeahead.cs class 700px


Stemming Implementation For Search

Shopper Experience / Commerce

Stemming feature introduced in this release allows the search to consider two types of words, one which are inputted by customers (shoppers) and the other ones, which are the other forms of words inputted by the customers (shoppers). It basically removes suffixes from words so that the words with the same root match each other.

To implement stemming, StemmerTokenFilter was added in the search.

For eg. Say a customer (shopper) enters ‘Mangoes’ in search. Stemming removes suffix ‘es’ to find the basic form of the word and then searches word and all the other forms of the same word. The other form of word ‘Mango’ is ‘Mangoes’, therefore Stemming searches ‘Mango’ as well as ‘Mangoes’ in search.

Important:- The StemmerTokenFilter will always be enabled by default in web config. Projects which do not want to use stemming will require to disable StemmerTokenFilter.


Remove Products From Cart Button

Administration

A 'Remove All Cart Items' action button is added on the User Cart section in Edit User module. This button allows admin users to remove all the products from the customer’s (shopper’s) cart.

To add this button, a new method RemoveAllCartItem was added in CustomerController.cs class.

700px


Display Order On Webstore

Administration / Shopper Experience

The sequence of product variants shown on the web store will now depend on the display order of the product variants set from the Znode admin application.

To implement this feature, changes were made in

  • GetDefaultConfiurableProduct method in PublishProductService.cs file
  • GetConfigurableAttributes method in PublishProductHelper.cs file


Edit Banner Sequence

Administration / Shopper experience

Admin users can now edit the Banner Sequence of the banners from the CMS >> Banner Sliders >> Edit Banner Slider list page itself.

To implement this functionality-

  • UpdateBannerSequence method was added in SliderAgent.cs file
  • EditBannerSequence method was added in WebSiteController.cs file
  • ValidateBannerSequenceField method was added in WebSite.ts
  • Changes were made in BannerViewModel.cs model

700px


Filter Order By Order Total

Administration

To implement this filter, changes were made in SetOrderListData method of OrderAgent.cs file, and ProductAttribute.ts file.

700px


Explicitly Set Custom Headers

Administration /Commerce

Provisions are made in this version, to allow custom changes in the header of the API request, explicitly as and when required.

To implement this functionality, the changes were made in BaseAgent and BaseClient files so that the Znode API can be called using custom headers allowing developers to set the headers.


Provision To Remove Custom Header

Administration /Commerce

Developers will now be able to remove the custom headers when required. This provision is made to ensure that unnecessary service calls are not initiated.

To implement this functionality, changes were made in SetCustomHeaderdsExplicitly method in BaseClient file.


Performance: Loading Time Of Contents On Znode Admin Dashboard Page

Administration /Commerce

In scenarios when bulk data is present, the loading time of contents fetched on the admin application dashboard page was quite slow.

To enhance the performance, temporary tables were converted into hash tables, scalar functions were converted to SQL queries and the SQL queries were optimized in the following procedures:-

  • ZnodeReport_Dashboard
  • ZnodeReport_DashboardTopProducts


Performance: Serve Header Menu Navigation From Cache Memory

Shopper Experience

The Znode application now allows the category menu options (shown on the web store) to be saved in the cache memory of the web server, whenever a customer (shopper) visits the web store.

After the category menu options are saved, then if a customer opens the web store, the category menu options in the header will be served from the cache memory.

The saving of category menu options in the cache memory has significantly reduced the loading time of the web store category menu header.

To enhance the performance, changes were made in the following methods- GetPublishedSubCategories and AssignSEODetails in CategoryService class GetCategories in CategoryAgent and in _HeaderNav.cshtml file

Note: The saving of category menu options in the cache memory will be compatible with profile and non-profile based web pages..


Performance: Reduced Number Of DB Calls To Load Product Information

Shopper Experience

Earlier, when the product publish-process was in progress, the web store used to initiate the large number of service calls to display configurable product’s information on the product listing page and on the individual product page. This was because, when a configurable product was published, the parent and child products were published separately.

With this release, when an admin user will try to publish a configurable product(s), it’s parent and child products will be published together, thereby reducing the database calls and the loading time of the product information on the product listing page and on the individual product page.

Changes were made in the following methods to enhance the performance:-

  • ExpandKeys
  • SearchProductModel
  • FullTextSearch of SearchService class
  • DependencyRegistration
  • GetProductExpands in WidgetDataAgent class (created provision for custom changes)
  • AutoMapperConfig
  • ProductViewModel

Also, the following methods were newly introduced to enhance the performance-

  • WebStoreAttributeValueSwatchMode
  • AttributeSwatchHelper
  • IAttributeSwatchHelper
  • AttributeValueSwatchViewModel


Performance: Donut Caching Improvements

Shopper Experience

Earlier, web store pages were not saved in the cache memory of the web server when even one product was available in the cart.

With this release, irrespective of whether products are available in the cart or not, Znode application will allow all the highly usable web pages (like the home page, product pages, category pages, etc) to be saved from the cache memory of the web server whenever customer (shopper) visits the web store.

After the web pages are saved, then if a customer (shopper) will open a web store, the web page will be served from the cache memory of the web server.

This type of caching has significantly reduced the loading time of the web page loading process.

To enhance performance,

  • A class ZnodePageCache was removed from FilterConfig file
  • ZnodePageCache class was added in Helpers folder of Web store core
  • Changes were made in OnResultExecuting method of class ZnodePageCache

Important: The cart count shown on the web store is Ajaxified in Znode’s base theme. Any Znode application which uses customized Znode base theme or any new theme will need to get the cart count through Ajax and not through the cache memory. Please note that if the cart count is not Ajaxified, then customers (shoppers) will see the count which was saved in the cache memory for the first time. Therefore it is quite possible that the customers (shoppers) might see a wrong cart count on the web store. GetCount Controller can be called through <web store domain name>.com/home/GetCartCount.


Performance: Change In Get Product Details Query

Summary

The database query used in WebstoreWidgetService.GetProducts method of Znode application has been changed.

This has significantly reduced the number of service calls initiated to fetch the product details and has also reduced the product details loading time on the product listing page and on the product detail page.


Performance: Widget Ajaxification

Shopper Experience

All the widgets available on the Znode’s base theme are Ajaxified.

This allows the Znode application to load the contents of all the widgets parallel to each other when the web store is opened.

Parallel loading has significantly reduced the loading time required to fetch the content on the web pages (using the base theme).

To increase the performance, changes were made in the following:-

  • GetProducts method in WebStoreWidgetService class
  • GetAvailableWidgets method in WidgetHelper class
  • WebStoreAccountController
  • WebStoreBlogNewsController
  • WebStoreCaseRequestController
  • WebStoreCategoryController
  • WebStoreContentPageController
  • WebStoreLocatorController
  • WebStoreMessageController
  • WebStorePortalController
  • WebStoreProductController
  • WebStoreWidgetController
  • CreateOKResponse method in BaseController
  • BundleConfig (added ZnodeAjaxify)
  • DynamicContentController
  • HTMLExtensions
  • ZnodeGlobal.ts
  • ZnodeAjaxify.ts
  • _HomeContent.cshtml
  • _Header.cshtml
  • _Slider.cshtml
  • _WidgetAjax.cshtml
  • _WidgetPlaceHolder.cshtml
  • _Layout.cshtml

700px 700px

Important:
1. Any Znode web application which uses customized Znode base theme or any new theme will require to implement Ajaxification in theme’s widgets.

2. The zip file of patch contains three new file Znode Ajaxify.ts, _WidgetAjax.cshtml and _WidgetPlaceHolder.cshtml add their reference in visual studio solution.


Performance: Get Cart

Shopper Experience

The number of entity calls initiated and the number of calculations performed on the Cart page are reduced by enhancing ShoppingCartService and PublishProductHelper classes. Also, a new API GetCartCount is introduced which has significantly increased the performance and reduced the loading time of the Cart page.

Important:-
1. Team members (developers) of different projects should be educated regarding the newly introduced code before they upgrade their projects to this Znode version so that they can take the changes based on the customizations (if any) they have done in GetShoppingCart method.

2. Major impacted areas- All the workflows related to the shopping cart, like tax, promotions, GetCart, PublishProductHelper, Promotion Manager.


Performance: Loading Time Of Shipping Methods On Checkout Page

Shopper Experience

The following line of code in GetShippingEstimates method in ShoppingCartService class used to take a long time to display Shipping Methods on the Checkout page of the web store -
ZnodeShoppingCart znodeShoppingCart = _shoppingCartMap.ToZnodeShoppingCart(model);

The code from ToZnodeShoppingCart method has been modified, and following new methods are introduced to optimize the performance and to reduce the loading time of the Shipping Methods on the Checkout page:-

  • AddtoShoppingBagV2
  • BindShoppingCartDataV2
  • BindProductDetailsV2

in ZnodeShoppingCart.cs file


Performance: Calculation Speed Of Shipping Price On Checkout Page

Shopper Experience

The CalculateShipping method from CartAgent class used to take a long time to calculate the shipping prices on the Checkout page.

The code from ToZnodeShoppingCart method has been modified, and the following new methods were introduced to increase the performance and to reduce the calculation time of the Shipping Price on the Checkout page:-

  • AddtoShoppingBagV2
  • BindShoppingCartDataV2
  • BindProductDetailsV2

in ZnodeShoppingCart.cs file


Performance: Loading Time Of Category Page

Shopper Experience

The GetCategorySeoDetails method used to take a long time to load the Category page on the web store. The code from GetCategorySeoDetails method is optimized and a new method GetBreadcrum is introduced to increase the performance and to reduce the loading time of the Category page.


Performance: Loading Time Of Product Details Page

Shopper Experience

User Guide for Performance enhancement for product page

In case of a large number of products, the loading time of product details page was very slow. This was due to many possible reasons and one of the major reasons was that all the data related to products (like inventory, SEO, pricing, associated products, add-ons, associated category details, product reviews, promotions, etc) was initiated through a single service call.

To optimize the loading time, the service call was broken down into multiple smaller parts so that each part could be executed in a parallel fashion. This has increased the performance and reduced the loading time of the product details page.

Note- The performance of the product display page is optimized for templates which use Product Size - Medium and Product Size - Small for different product types (refer image below). Product Size can be set from the display settings of a store.

700px


Performance: Saving Static Content In Cache Memory

Shopper Experience

The Znode application now allows the static content shown on the web store (like web store logo, icons , etc) to be saved in the cache memory of the browser, whenever a customer (shopper) visits the web store.

After the static content is saved, then if a customer opens the web store, the static content will be served from the cache memory.

The saving of static content in the cache memory has significantly reduced the loading time of the web page contents.

To allow saving static content in the cache memory, Application_BeginRequest method was removed from Response.Cache.SetNoStore method of Global.asax file


Performance: Reuse Search Connections

Shopper Experience

When customers (shoppers) search any keyword on the web store, a search connection is established. This connection is established every time a customer (shopper) performs the search.

With this release the already established connections will be used to fetch the search results, using existing connection object, thereby reducing the memory consumption issues on the web store.

To implement this functionality, changes were made in ElasticSearchClient in ElasticSearchBase class.
