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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
