Release Notes 2016.02
While many of us were enjoying the winter holidays by taking time away from work, our Engineers found some time to make a few adjustments to Lulu's shipping forms, product URLs and eBook product pages.
Shipping Address Requirements
As part of our January 12th maintenance release we updated our ordering system to better comply with shipping and postal address requirements. The Address 1 and Address 2 field character limits were changed from 35 to 30 characters. Additionally, we updated our postal code formats for orders shipped to Armenia and South Korea.
As part of this update, any saved shipping addresses that did not meet the new address criteria were removed from user accounts. Affected users were notified by email with instructions prior to this release.
When a book is published on Lulu, we generate a unique product URL for each book. We recently noticed that some URLs include duplicate information. We identified the source of the problem and repaired the URLs. This fix improves product support and social sharing of your publications through Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and other social media outlets
The Return of the iBookstore button
The “Available on the iBookstore” button is once again displayed below eBook cover images for all books distributed to the iBookstore.
