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 :)
