Few months back we had requested our customers to provide their inputs
related to new features and enhancements that they would like to have
in their beloved subscription management system i.e. PayPlans. We
got numerous requests for making PayPlans
compatible with Bootstrap 3. In order to offer eCommerce business
solution with the latest technology, we decided to upgrade templates of
PayPlans to support Bootstrap 3 (BS3). Since BS3 is mobile friendly
too, it will be great opportunity for mobile users to try out sites on
their handheld devices anytime, anywhere.
Why Template is So Important ?
Template is the face of your site and it is supposed to be
attractive and responsive so that you can gain more attentions from
customers for your business. At the same time your customers should
feel connected to your site and its contents. In current online market
there are lot of templates available which are using Bootstrap 3.
Problem with PayPlans and BS3 Template ?
supports BS2 in its templates. It was difficult for a new customers who
has already paid for a nice template of BS3 to do changes in CSS,
templates etc. to make it working fine with PayPlans. Our customers had
to do template overriding to overcome issues that they faced because of
this template incompatibility.
Before implementing the solution for this problem we gave ample
thoughts about how we should go ahead with this as we have certain
limitations. After all the mind-boggling meetings and discussions we
finally came to a solution i.e. -
Lets make it a step-by-step process. It means we will be
providing FrontEnd PayPlans templates compatible with BS3 first.
While backend templates will continue be of BS2 compatible.
Since these changes are related to templates only, customer
need not upgrade PayPlans again. We have done all the changes using
template overriding i.e. all PayPlans frontend templates will be
provided as a template override.
There are few changes in some apps so you might need to update
those apps as well. You can go through the list of apps that needs to
be updated on PayPlans support forum.

User Action to be Taken before Upgrading The Templates :-
Please take backup of your existing template override that you
have earlier if any.
If you have done any other customization then please do that
in these templates as well, You can compare the templates before
proceeding to upgrade.
We would recommend to test your upgrades on your test site
first before migrating to Live site.
As we did not want to put any burden on the customers, we have
provided all these BS3 compatible templates as overrides. Customer just
need to copy and paste the templates overrides into their respective
template folder and thatâs it !!!
