CoCart - Beta Tester


CoCart Beta Tester allows you to try out new versions of CoCart Lite before they are officially released.

Use with caution, not on production sites. Beta releases may not be stable.

After activation, you'll be able to choose an update channel:

  1. Beta - Update to beta releases, RC, or stable, depending on what is newest.
  2. Release Candidate - Update to RC releases or stable, depending on what is newest.
  3. Stable - No beta updates. Default WordPress behavior.

These will surface pre-releases via automatic updates in WordPress. Updates will replace your installed version of CoCart Lite.

Note, this will not check for updates on every admin page load unless you explicitly tell it to. You can do this by clicking the "Check Again" button from the WordPress updates screen or you can set the COCART_BETA_TESTER_FORCE_UPDATE to true in your wp-config.php file.


You may:

  1. Download the latest release from the GitHub repository.
  2. Go to WordPress Admin > Plugins > Add New.
  3. Click Upload Plugin at the top.
  4. Choose File and select the .zip file you downloaded in Step 1.
  5. Click Install Now and Activate the CoCart - Beta Tester.


If you wish to change which builds become available, hover over the admin bar in the dashboard and click "Channel: Beta". Then you will be given the option to select between Beta, Release Candidates and Stable Releases.

You can also enable automatic updates.

Switch Versions

If you wish to install a specific version, hover over the admin bar in the dashboard and click "Switch versions". Then you will be given a list of releases to select and switch over. Also helpful if you wish to roll back a release.

Frequently Asked Questions

Does this allow me to install multiple versions of CoCart Lite at the same time?

No, updates will replace your currently installed version of CoCart Lite. You can switch to any version from this plugin via the interface however.

Where do updates come from?

Updates are downloaded from the CoCart GitHub repository where we tag prerelease versions specifically for this purpose.
