During the beginning of 2016 we will be upgrading our system to the newest ePages version 6.17. There are a few new features in the new version, here we go through the most important ones. For more details check out the ePages Release Notes. Some of the features in the new version are:
Out of stock shown in drop down
If a product has variations and a variation is out of stock, the variation is greyed out in the drop down selection.
Top sellers on the dashboard
The dashboard of your online shop gives you a comprehensive overview about various interesting facts and figures concerning your shop. Now you can add a new widget with a list of the most popular products, including thumbnail pictures of the products and the number of sales.
Basket elements always showing price including delivery
All basket elements that show the price will show the price including the default delivery cost.
Updated design of facebook shop

Attributes merged in faceted search
If two product attributes have the same ID or name (like "Color") but are of different attribute types (like "options" and "value selection") they are now still merged in the faceted search to allow filtering.
Better automatic image compression
When uploading product images, an automatic compression is applied for certain views. Compression has been optimised to avoid image quality loss by artefacts.
Four new layout templates
There are four new templates: Minimal, Slate, Pure & Horizon.
Product page has new layout in mobile view
The layout of the product pages in the mobile view is a bit different. Also the header in the mobile view will be dark instead of light.
