Change Log for PRO version
Last Updated – October 3, 2018
- Updated – Moved the video and image gallery addon to blocks framework with a host of new features. The popular gallery module is now powered by the same robust framework that powers our posts grid and posts block modules.
- Added – 3 skins for video and image gallery module with better support for titles and descriptions.
- Added – 7 new header styles for video and image gallery addon derived from blocks framework.
- Added – Support for AJAX based filtering instead of JS filtering for video/image gallery addon when pagination/load more function is chosen for the gallery. No more empty filters since the gallery items are fetched from the server when filters are invoked. When number of items for a filter exceeds the ‘items per page’ specified, the filters themselves are paginated or load more function is invoked depending on user choice. The addon reverts to quicker in-memory JS filters when no pagination or load more is involved.
- Added – Support for tags and filters when bulk upload option for images is chosen.
- Added – Collapsible and responsive filters for the gallery module.
