Introducing Classic Commerce
The Classic Commerce project was initiated in the early stages of the ClassicPress development process, when it became clear that a reliable e-commerce solution would be a necessity. ClassicPress was promoting itself as the "business-focused CMS" and a dependable, secure e-commerce plugin was clearly one of the basic requirements for any business community.
It was decided to fork WooCommerce 3.5.3, so that users could continue using this popular application while ensuring it remained compatible with ClassicPress. Over the past year, much work has been done on this fork to remove various dependant services and extensions, with consequent trimming of the initial setup wizard and other dead weight.
In addition to that huge task, there was also the job of archiving the functions and classes for easier and better tracking of the future development of the software. Work was also carried out by the community to rebrand colours and logos to create a new image.
The result is a cleaner, lighter and truly independent e-commerce solution that still retains all of the features that made WooCommerce such a powerful and versatile plugin.
