A word of advice

Hope you like the update the same as we do. However when updating your site please make sure to backup any modifications you have made to the theme files. Enfold Version 3.1 changed a lot of the files we are using, so if you are running into troubles  feel free to open a new thread in our support forum ;)

If you want to know which folders and files we modified please download the theme on themeforest and check the version.txt file that comes with the download.

And now: Have fun with the update

    Upgraded today and everything went very smoothly. We’ve got a highly customised site and your upgrades didn’t break a thing – thanks for all these brilliant features, especially excited about the advanced editor in posts!

    Best improvement: “added: template builder can now be used on single post entries”. A lot of photographers who like to show their actual work by using *blog* entries (and not pages), they can generate now easy beautiful entries using the builder instead of inserting manual code/short code… thanks a lot!

    Great with an update! However I noticed that on a 1440p screen, the e-commerce demo doesn’t fill out the width on the 4 image containers right under the parallax image.

    I am looking forward to update and see whats new!

    Awesome update. I’m really excited about this one. Haven’t found where the tooltip options are hiding, but the rest is amazing. I knew I picked the right theme for our site launch last year. Thank you for such hard work.

    Dope stuff guys!! Thanks a lot :D the page transitions rock :)

    On my own website http://joax.nl a lot of time I use the “?rel=0” addition on the youtube video’s (which removes the related videos at the end) but none of those work after this update..

    It would be nice if one could turn of all related video’s sitewide in the enfold settings

    I know I already posted on this update, but I had to post again. This is a very exciting update. I was up until 3AM making adjustments to http://mytechreport.com with the new update. I’m looking forward to the next 9 months of site updates with this release alone.

    The only thing I really wish you would add, it the ability to hide an element on a page or post. Sometimes I spend a great deal of time working on a section with several elements, and need to remove it from the live site for a period of time. All I can do is delete it, and start over when I need to put it back. I’m not sure how many people have this come up, but it happens for me often.

    Thank you guys for building such an amazing theme with so many beautiful elements and options which are visually pleasing for todays web design. Enfold is amazing and beautiful web.
