Enfold Version 2.8 – Contact Forms, Animated Numbers, more masonry

Lots of big and small improvements that you demanded! 

Enfold version 2.8 is the third release after we have introduced our new feature request system. If you haven’t suggested new features or voted on existing ones you are definitely missing out on shaping the future of the theme with us. We have already added more than a dozen requests, some of them more popular than others, but a lot of them would never have found their way into the theme without our vocal community ;)

This time we have put our focus on improving existing elements like the form builder, which is much more flexible now, or the masonry which can now be used as a non-fullwidth element :)

Of course no major release without at least one new template builder element. This time we are adding one that has lived on the frontpage of Kriesi.at for quite some time and is now ready for the public. The animated numbers element.

Go check out the theme demo and if you want to know what exactly was improved, here is a list:

Enfold Version 2.7 – Magazine Element, Accordion Slider, Customization Wizard and more…

Ever wanted to use Enfold to power your magazine? Its now easier than ever

With version 2.7 we have focused on all things necessary to create a successful online magazine. We have added a new “Magazine” Template Builder Element as well as an Accordion Slider which is able to display recent entries from a category of your choice or some static images.

The enfold admin panel now holds a dedicated blog tab that lets you define how the blog should look like, which meta information should be visible,  how the related entries should be displayed and even adds a bunch of simple but beautiful sharing buttons for social networks.

Another feature that was requested quite often was the ability to customize distinct elements like h1-h6 tags, main menu items etc without the need for custom.css. Our customization Wizard which can be found at Enfold->Advanced Styling in your backend will be able to do that for you :)

Of course thats only the tip of the iceberg. We got a lot of other smaller changes as well which might be interesting for you :)

Enfold Version 2.6 – Header Configurator, RTL Stlyesheet, Google Maps and more

Even more flexibility arrived with this version! The theme now allows you to configure the header just as you like

Enfold has always allowed to change the colors of your header at will and select from a few styling options, but some of the most common requests we got, like “how to increase/decrease the logo size”, “how to stick/unstick the header”, “how to change the position of the social icons” and “how to achieve header transparency”, always needed custom CSS. Well not anymore.

We decided to build a small configuration tool that allows you to do all that and more. In the process we were even able to remove some old and outdated scripts and styles, decreasing the css and javascript file size, which results in better performance of the theme :)

Here is one of those new options on our demo. Something which was previously not really possible but is now easily accomplished: The transparent header

But there is more:

Enfold Version 2.5 – Fullscreen Video, Video Section, Parallax backgrounds and more

We added video support for all sliders and even sections!

Since you guys were very vocal about better video support of the theme we have recently added video support for our fullwidth and fullscreen slideshows and also added the option to display videos as a background for sections.

In addition to that, we further improved the color section element which now allows real parallax background images which scroll at a different speed than the rest of the site. You can see an example of the new feature here on the new demo frontpage which also ships with the latest version of the theme.

Enfold Version 2.3: Say hello to our new iconfont uploader

Took a lot of Work but it is worth the wait!
We completely revamped the themes iconfont system

This was one of the most requested features in our Enfold Feature Request Thread. Using various Icon Font Sets, to get a different look and feel, and adding more social icons for the header, were the main reasons we recently sat down and completely revamped the Icon System of the theme.

Enfold still ships with the default font “Entypo” (of course with more social icons now), simply because its a beautiful and versatile iconfont, but you can now head over to Fontello.com, create a iconfont of your choice and upload it into our iconfont Manager. These icons can then be used across the site for all of our template builder elements and shortcodes :)
