Make 1.8.6 and Make Plus 1.8.5

By Tom Stark on March 30, 2017

Today we’re proud to announce Make 1.8.6 and Make Plus 1.8.5! There are exciting features coming to both. Column rows, refreshed builder design and more! Here’s what’s new:

Make:

Did you know that Surf Office, Postmatic, Yeah Dave, and over 700,000 small businesses run their websites with Make, our free WordPress page builder. Discover the Make page builder now.

  • Added column rows. You can now add as many rows as you want to your Columns sections.
  • Added new configuration dropdown. Clicking the new contextual menu (three dot icon) in a builder section reveals more options for that item.
  • Improved the way images are handled inside Columns. You can now embed images inline with your column content without using the featured image field, which has now been removed.
  • Refreshed the design of the builder. Colors have been updated to better match WordPress’ default styles. We also improved the look and feel of Add Item buttons in sections.
  • Improved the content editor overlay. The background will now match the background color of your section for even easier editing.
  • Improved the way Banner text displays on smaller screens.
  • Improved behavior of overlays in builder.
  • Fixed builder section helper classes on front-end, especially the case when builder-section-first and builder-section-last were added to wrong sections.
  • Fixed hover on gallery caption overlays on mobile devices and fixed issues where gallery items without a link failed to show caption on hover.

Make Plus:

  • Added configuration dropdown for widgets. You can now configure widget properties or trash widgets right from the builder.
  • Improved Panels content preview. Panels will now adapt its height to the amount of content added.
  • Fixed issue where widget properties set from an overlay in widgetized columns were not saving.
