My thoughts on Gutenberg

My thoughts on Gutenberg

Everyone is talking about the release of WordPress 5.0 and the Gutenberg block editor. You can read my thoughts and my experiment here:

The Switch

 

(I have yet to update this site to WP5. Once I do you’ll hear about it.)

Black Friday? Yes.

Black Friday? Yes.

Time to celebrate! At least for me. 🙂 The website has been successfully moved to a new host, fast and efficient, thanks to the support team of AlpHosting!

And I managed to fix the glitch with the shopping cart, so it seems to work now finally.

And Black Friday is here, and what is Black Friday without a deal, right? 🙂

So here’s my deal for you until and including November 26, 2018:

Get 30% off when you purchase FA Icons for Divi Builder AND Divi Builder UI Pro together!

The coupon code: BLACKFRIDAY

Webshop error

Webshop error

It has been brought to my attention that none of the items in the store can be purchased, the cart remains empty. I do apologize for this inconvenience.

I’m working on resolving the issue, while the site is being moved to a different host in parallel.

Your patience will be rewarded with a prolonged Black Friday sale. 😉

Self hosting option added to FA Icons for Divi

Self hosting option added to FA Icons for Divi

Summer is in full blast, but it looks like the Font Awesome team does not go on vacation. They just delivered 4 new category packs and that also means there is an update for the FA Icons for Divi plugin.

What’s new in FA Icons for Divi 2.8?

Quite a lot, actually.

Obviously it supports the new icon packs. (Check here.)

Beside using the Font Awesome CDN now you also have the option of Self hosting the icons of FA 5 Free. What is self hosting? It means that the icons will be served from the same server as your site, and not from a server that is part of a Content Delivery Network.

In case you use your WordPress dashboard in a different language than English you can now translate the whole plugin, including the labels on the switches through a css file. (If you want your translation to be included in the next version, send it over, and I’ll be happy to add it. You will find my contact on the Help tab.)

I fixed a bug which caused an error when trying to network activate the plugin on a multi-site installation. (Thanks to Stian for reporting this.)

I updated the URLs on the Help tab because they were pointing to already non-existing pages.

The the FA assets were updated in the plugin to make sure you get the latest icons under all circumstances.

I ran some test to make sure that the plugin works with the latest versions of Divi, Extra, and Divi Builder.

FA Icons for Divi Builder 2.5 now supporting Font Awesome 5

Font Awesome has launched version 5. That absolutely called for an update of the FA Icons for Divi Builder plugin!

Due to licensing reasons the plugin had to be renamed but it’s still the same, just better. :o)

The plugin now supports Font Awesome 5 Free, both SVG and Webfonts versions, as well as the good old version 4.7.

The settings page also received a nice facelift and the plugin became multilingual. If you want your translation to be included in the package, just translate is with the help of the included .pot file and send it over to me. I will be happy to include it in the package.

Here’s a rundown of what all is new.

* [Tweak] Renamed the plugin due to licensing reasons (https://fontawesome.com/license)
* [Feature] Added the option to use Font Awesome 5 free (v5.0.8)
* [Feature] Added possibility to translate the plugin and included .pot file
* [i18n] Added Hungarian translation
* [Tweak] Added tabbed options to better separate basic and advanced settings
* [Tweak] Improved the design of the setting page
* [Compatibility] Updated compatible version numbers
* Removed deprecated code
* Bumped version number
* February 13, 2018
