Overview of type property for specification attributes in nopCommerce

Categories: nopCommerce

Until now, the functionality of adding specification attributes for any product only allowed store owners to display attribute values as simple plain text. Now, with the release of new nopCommerce 3.5 version, a store owner can easily add specification attributes values in several types like:

(Options)

- Custom text

- HTML text

-Hyperlink



nopCommerce product specification attributes



It would be very useful to have a "type" property that would define the way the value will be displayed in the product detail: text (default), link, download, or HTML text. Thus it will give a lot of flexibility for attaching user manuals, brochures, (example in "folleto" tab) , specification tables, Excel sheets, etc. or making links or displaying specifications with more flexibility.



P.S. Note that link, color square, image, etc can be supported by "HTML text" type. So there's no need to add support for all of them

How to enable reCAPTCHA in nopCommerce to protect your website from spam

Categories: nopCommerce

nopCommerce comes integrated with reCAPTCHA that enables the store admin to enable CAPTCHA for list of specific pages in order to prevent spam on the website.

Before we go further into this tutorial, let talk about reCAPTCHA.

What is reCAPTCHA?
reCAPTCHA is a free service to protect your website from spam and abuse. reCAPTCHA uses an advanced risk analysis engine and adaptive CAPTCHAs to keep automated software from engaging in abusive activities on your site. It does this while letting your valid users pass through with ease.

reCAPTCHA offers more than just spam protection. Every time our CAPTCHAs are solved, that human effort helps digitize text, annotate images, and build machine learning datasets. This in turn helps preserve books, improve maps, and solve hard AI problems.
