Divi Builder UI plugin released

Divi Builder UI plugin released

When it comes to work, I’m all about being effective. As effective as possible with as little scrolling and as few clicks as possible.

The design team at Elegant Themes did a great job in designing and further improving on the Divi Builder user interface. It is well organized and quite intuitive. I like working with it in general. And the Visual Builder on the front end was a nice addition recently, however, in most cases I still use the backend with the Divi Builder, it is simply more effective for me.

After working with it for some time – a couple years back – I realized though that there is too much scrolling involved when I need to adjust one thing in a module. So I started thinking and tinkering and wrote about it … But I wanted more!

And at last, all that tinkering resulted in the Divi Builder UI Light | Divi Builder UI Pro plugins, which I am happily releasing today.

You can visit the plugin page to read and see what it does and what are the differences between Light and Pro.

I am very proud of this plugin and I really hope it will reach to popularity of Font Awesome for Divi, which has been downloaded more than a 1500 times so far.

Go ahead and check it out!

Finally I had some time to do this. I moved divi-magazine.com over to a different server and activated SSL/HTTPS. Although it is a self-signed certificate, you can be assured that as of now (actually as of yesterday) you and your data is safe when browsing the Divi Magazine. Hurray! :o)

Font Awesome for Divi Builder 2.3 released

Font Awesome for Divi Builder 2.3 released

The Font Awesome for Divi Builder plugin received an important update!!!

Font Awesome has changed their apporach in how the icon library can be included with a site – for good. Until now when a new version of the icon library was released you needed to paste a new code into the head of your site. Now this is over. There is one code (you can generate it here) which you never have to change again and you will always receive the latest and greatest of font icon.

Note: you will need to generate your own Font Awesome embed code here! It is not provided by The Divi Maganize.

This change has also been reflected in the Font Awesome for Divi Builder plugin. Activate it, enter the code received from Font Awesome and you are ready to go – for a loooooooong time. 🙂

Also a new feature of the plugin is a dashboard widget where you will receive news about any updates and news from The Divi Magazine.

Head over to the store to grab the new version, or just click this button below:

Divi 2.3.2 released

Yesterday I read about the coming Divi 2.4 update, which will be packed with a whole bunch of new features. (Read the Elegant Themes sneak peek here.) It’s going to be amazing!

Today I was surprised to see on my Dashboard the Divi 2.3.2 update being available. I quickly logged in to the ET members area to check the changelog, but it is not yet available there.

But after the update – I trusted nothing will break 🙂 – I checked the changelog, and it says the following:

version 2.3.2 ( updated 04-23-2015 )
- Fixed the issue with Aweber, breaking Page Builder on some servers, when no settings were defined
    * functions.php
- Added minor security hardening
    * epanel/custom_functions.php
    * et-pagebuilder/et-pagebuilder.php
    * functions.php
- Bumped version number
    * style.css

So we got an Aweber bug fixed and tougher security.

Thanks Elegant Themes! Keep up the good work!

I wonder what’s coming tomorrow… 🙂
