YOOtheme Pro 1.6 released

Today’s YOOtheme Pro 1.6 release is one you are really going to like :) It has the most wished for Pro feature on board: A WYSIWYG editor! But it doesn’t stop there. There are two new builder elements to make content creating more fun: the Table and the Countdown element. And of course, YOOtheme Pro 1.6 comes with a lot of improvements and bug fixes. All of this can be seen in action in our upcoming theme next week. Spoiler alert: It will be graphic-rich :) So, be excited!

WYSIWYG editor support

Writing content now becomes a lot easier with support for the default Joomla and WordPress WYSIWYG editors. We've had more than 300 upvotes in our support forum for this feature and are pleased to announce full support for both. Just navigate to any content field in YOOtheme Pro and use the power of the system editor. Format your content with a few clicks, pick links for posts and articles and add images through the media manager. By the way, for Joomla, we added JCE support, too.

We haven't forgotten all you coders, either. That's why you can switch between the WYSIWYG editor and code view. It comes with all the CodeMirror goodies you need: syntax highlighting, auto-completion and auto-closing tags.

Editor

Table element

The new Table element allows you to easily build beautiful and flexible tables. Use it to create conference schedules, restaurant menus, pricing lists or any kind of tabular data. There are many settings available to change the order and style of columns, set headlines and configure the responsive behavior.

Table element

Countdown element

We also created a new Countdown element that displays an animated timer on your website. Tell your users how much time is left until your exciting product release, conference event or just the new year. The element comes from the most recent UIkit release and works across different time zones.

Countdown element

Box-shadow bottom option

This new option adds a cool three-dimensional look to many elements on your website. A bottom box shadow makes images and videos seem to be hovering over the page and imparts a more dynamic feel.

Anonymize Google Analytics

Google Analytics is a brilliant tool to help you understand what people are doing on your site. However, every visitor‘s IP is sent to third party servers and you might not want that - or you might be required by law to prevent this. Now you can. Just enable the Anonymize setting when you configure Google Analytics. This masks the IP before sending it and is the accepted way to conform to privacy regulations.

More additions

These are the main reforms in YOOtheme Pro 1.6, but there is still more. For example, we added a font-style option for UIkit components as well as border gradient support to the Base, Button and Tab components. Furthermore, we added a box-shadow option to the Video element.

Now, stop reading and start playing around with the latest features and new settings. We are eager to hear your thoughts and ideas on this release. As always, feel free to leave us your comment below.

    Nice updates! Same comment as for your last post: make these settings end-customer proof! Let us agencies configure the settings of these elements and our customer edit only the content but not the settings of these elements!

      It's on the todo list called "Locked builder mode for end users" https://yootheme.com/support/question/103519

        Shouldn't "Locked builder mode for end users" be at least medium priority? I've seen a lot of threads and complaints about this.

        This would be very helpful to our business model as well! I don't want to build a great site, then have the end-user client start messing around with the global settings, which would require us to have to go back and restore or fix it. We only want end-users to add, edit and style content, not settings. Thanks!

      i read your reply on the support page of Yootheme on "Our main concerns about Pro" You have been kind of sceptic about Pro. I like to know if you have changed your mind. Or are you still searching for the right way to work with the Pro themes. I am just curious about your opinion on this matter.

        I'm not sure if you are talking to me, but if yes, I'm kind of still searching for the right way to work with pro. My main issue is that, although it is an interesting concept, it is not end-customer proof.

          We have some great plans for an end users mode, where they just fill out the content fields... It's all coming ;-)

    Great stuff but white labeling is the thing to put on top clients want their companies names on their code not YOOtheme (name not copyright ^^)

    "That's why you can switch between the WYSIWYG editor and code view."
    If the WYSIWYG would not strip the code it would be a nice feature.

      That is just what the wysiwyg editor will do, because its purpose is to manage the HTML markup... Here is what you can do instead:

      1. EITHER your only use the "Code" tab. You can still switch to the "Visual" tab and back, but as soon as you start making changes in the visual tab and then save them, your markup will be destroyed.

      2. OR for elements where you actually want to use markup: Do not use a Text element but an HTML element instead.

    Very nice, I think end of the year we can use it for clients.
    It will be nice, when the counter can count up, too. So you can insert since....

    I wish there was some way to have the text input window appear on the bottom of the screen. Having it on the side makes the WYSIWYG editor take up too much vertical real estate.

    Placing the input window underneath the preview window would be a more natural way to input text.

    Maybe i missed it, but on the forum we have this discussion about Warp themes. A lot of us just want to choose to either use Pro or the old skool Warp programming. I have the feeling our questions are being ignored. Or, i have not payed attention and missed it, then please inform us about where to find Yootheme's statement in this.

      You will be able to build websites the same way in Pro like you did in Warp. There are just features missing. For example, if you miss more module positions, that's something on our todo list called "Builder for modules". You can find our roadmap here https://yootheme.com/support/question/103519 Please let us know, what else is missing.

        Hey Sascha, Thanks for the answer. We still feel really unconfortable with Pro, and a lot of users agree with me on that. Why does YooTheme forces us to work with a builder if we are all pro's in building it by hand. Why are basic elements as Module Positions still missing in Pro. There must be a way to let us work like we always did. We loved to work with YooTheme. We (and i am talking about a lot of your subscribers) beg you to just drop us the themes with Pro and Warp. Let us choose whatever we want to install. But don't force us using builders, it feels like a disgrace of our profession. Its like giving a professional art painter a color book.

          We are working hard on getting YOOtheme Pro feature complete. That's why there is a new Pro version each month. There is especially a lot of stuff coming for developers which will make Pro super powerful. It's the future...

            We're of the same opinion as messagedj. We're currently still using the old setup as Pro is just not the way we work. Forcing builders for your demographic seems like a massive step backwards. "new Pro version each month" is pointless for those of us who find Pro impractical. It's essentially rendered our subscription nul and void from the Pro release date, and I for one and expecting modules positions to be re-intriduced at a bare minimum in the coming months if we're going to stay with you guys moving forward.

            I appreciate your upcoming focus on the developer side of things :-)

            We are currently sticking with Warp until layout profiles per page, hide main content, module positions and end users mode are in place. Also curious about the content provider.

            Hope to be able to start using PRO soon :-)

            I'm hoping it will as we all love YT and have been with you guys for years, but are really dissapointed with Pro thus far... Is there a rough timeframe on this particular release?

    Could it be possible for adding count up or down module? Counting up from 0 to a specific number. For "fancy" number display. Example 1552 members.

    As a longtime warp wordpress user I'm really enjoying the concepts pro is introducing however I'm surprised to have not found; page specific display control of widgets in any position (ie; top) nor a simple image slideshow function ... am I missing something?

      I agree on the slideshow comment. I am surprised that it wasn't one of the first things finished.
