At nearly a decade old, #wp ecommerce has gone through its share of ups and downs. It has a reputation among some developers in the WordPress community as being bloated and poorly coded. “The purpose of the rewrite is to bring us back up to latest WP coding standards,” Dan Milward, Founder of WP eCommerce, told the Tavern. “When we first released WP eCommerce, WordPress had sketchy coding standards at best (WordPress was at v1.5). As such, making a complex eCommerce Plugin back in the day was difficult and we had to do things in ways that are now frowned upon.”
