Make 1.8.6 and Make Plus 1.8.5

by Tom Stark on March 30, 2017 / 1 comment

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:

  • 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.
