  • We changed all variables passed to smarty, make sure what you use is still assigned
  • $link is deprecated (even if it’s still passed to smarty, it will be removed at some point), use {url} helper
  • make sure your use the new way of calling templates: fetch(module:modulename/views/template.tpl)
  • make sure you don't add your assets with hardcoded path in displayHeader hook (no change but it’s bad)
  • Smarty is automatically escaped, so: 1. Remove all |escape:’html’:’UTF-8’ (FOR FRONT TEMPLATES ONLY) 2. Add nofilter if you print html
  • Only rely documented variables ! Any other variable my come from a module or just be a left over and might be removed at any time.
  • If you use the backward_compatibility package, check that PrestaShop version is 1.4 before importing it. With PrestaShop 1.7 you’ll get a fatal error
