Why Upgrade to PrestaShop 8.x?

PrestaShop 8.x is not merely an update; it's a transformation.Designed with meticulous care, it unveils a collection of features aimed at augmenting both the administrative aspects and the overall user experience. From its sleek interface to its robust core, every element is crafted to empower your online presence. Key highlights include:


Enhanced Security Measures

Shop administrators have the ability to adjust password policies, offering a range from basic to advanced complexity for enhanced security. Additionally, administrators gain insights into user activities with access to users' history and the capability to terminate user sessions remotely. A new feature also allows users to assess the strength of their passwords during creation, promoting robust security practices.


SEO-Focused Enhancements

  Category pages can now incorporate SEO-optimized text, improving the shop's visibility on search engine results pages (SERPs). For products that are no longer available, administrators can utilize the 410 Gone status, aiding in maintaining the site's SEO integrity. Additionally, meta title tags can be appended with page numbers, and a live character counter helps ensure meta descriptions stay within optimal lengths for search engine indexing.


Upgraded Image Handling

Support for WebP image format has been introduced, optimizing image storage and quality. Furthermore, the webshop's logo can now be uploaded in the SVG format, ensuring high-quality representation across various platforms.


  Product Page Improvements

Significant upgrades have been made to the product page, particularly in the management of product combinations and the facilitation of bulk operations, streamlining the product management process.

PrestaShop 8.0 supports the latest PHP versions, 8.0 and 8.1, which is crucial because over 70% of web content is powered by PHP. Utilizing these PHP versions ensures compatibility with the latest advancements in speed and security, enhancing the performance of PrestaShop 8.0 significantly. For optimal operation, PrestaShop 8.0 requires a server with PHP version 7.2.5 or higher.
