Please view the upgrade notes in the wiki. If you have any issues with v0.7.0 please let us know.


FoxyCart JavaScript

  • The "includes" files necessary for FoxyCart to function on your site have been moved to our CDN (Content Delivery Network). This provides a 2-5x speed increase around the world, but in order to make it happen the paths for the "includes" CSS and JavaScript files have been changed. You will need to change any and all references on your site that look like this:
    <script src="http://YOURDOMAIN.foxycart.tld/files/foxycart_includes.js" type="text/javascript" charset="utf-8"></script>
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="" type="text/css" media="screen" charset="utf-8" />
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="" type="text/css" media="screen" charset="utf-8" />
    Please check your FoxyCart Admin's "sample code" section for the new code to use.
  • FoxyCart's foxycart_includes.js and foxycart.js have been rewritten to provide increased flexibility and a more robust handling of dynamically created add-to-cart elements. Please see the new documentation on foxycart.js for details. If your site is using any of the following, you'll need to rewrite some of your javascript to take advantage of the new functionality and maintain compatibility with FoxyCart's javascript.
    • fc_PreProcess()
    • fc_BuildFoxyCart()
    • fc_json
    • fc_tb_init()
    • Any custom cart display using a non-default modal window or JSONP functionality
    • Hack or override to get the fcsid cookie set at a subdomain or third-level domain (like
    • Self-hosted foxycart_includes.js
    • Anything else that's using any code from foxycart_includes.js
  • "FoxyBox" has been replaced by Colorbox as the default modal window. More details in the upgrade notes.
  • The version of jQuery required by FoxyCart, and loaded automatically in the cart, checkout, and receipt pages, has been upgraded from 1.3.2 to 1.4.2.

Receipt Emails

  • Added new receipt email place holders ^^order_begin^^^^order_end^^^^updateinfo_begin^^^^updateinfo_end^^^^subscription_cancel_begin^^^^subscription_cancel_end^^ for customizing emails based on the interaction with the customer.
  • Removed the cart from all updateinfo emails.
  • Removed the receipt information from all subscription cancel emails.

System Wide

  • Past Due amounts on subscriptions are now automatically charged the next time a subscription runs.
  • Coupon codes used in a transaction are now included in the admin transaction export.
  • The admin transaction export now optionally includes transaction details.
  • Added store_version to the subscriptions datafeed.
  • Tax line item details are now sent to PayPal gateways.
  • All values are now rounded to the correct number of decimal points for the given currency before being sent to the payment gateway.


  • Added PayJunction as a payment gateway (patched back to 0.6.0).
  • Subscription cancellations no longer require payment information. The checkout interface has been simplified to just a login screen and a cancel button.


  • Added a new "y" product attribute modifier to specifying a product category.
  • Modified the javascript insertion point in the cart to prevent the "flash of unstyled content". Rather than inserting FoxyCart's javascript after the title tag, it now inserts after the last titlestyle, or link element.

        • Fix for javascript currency formatter not displaying negative numbers correctly.
