Enfold Version 3.5 – WooCommerce Bookings integration, a new layout mode, 5 new Demos and more

A release focusing on e-commerce

Our latest version of Enfold introduces full compatibility with the great WooCommerce Bookings extension, in our opinion one of the best ways to sell time or date based bookings.

No matter if you want to build a site for a personal coach, a hotel, a spa or any other kind of booking: Enfold in conjunction with the Bookings extension got you covered now. See examples here and here :)

In addition to that we have introduced a new layout mode called “Fixed Frame” which allows you to create a frame of variable width and color. Also new are the many new display option for various existing elements like products, masonry items, icon lists, etc. Most of these display options were introduce to bridge the gap between some of the existing elements, something we will probably do more often in the future. Since this is a release that focuses mostly on the capabilities of WooCommerce and its various extensions we have started with the option to display the masonry items in the same way as the product grid, so that you can mix those elements on your site and they still look like they belong together. You can check it yourself in the travel demo.

But most of the development time for this release was used to create  5 great new demos that show that Enfold is really capable of building any kind of unique website by now. Here is a  list of our latest additions and modifications:

New demo content:

New Features:

  • added: support and styling for woocommerce bookings (eg:here and here)
  • added: new layout feature. Instead of stretched and boxed you can now chose “framed” which displays a fixed frame around the site (eg:here and here )
  • added: new product style: minimal overlay
  • added: new styling option for masonry and masonry gallery element: caption overlay
  • added: background images for sections, cells and columns can now be set to “scale to fit” so the whole background image is always visible (check the ornament background on our hotel demo)
  • added: font size selection for accordion slider
  • added: option to center accordion text
  • added: new google fonts
  • added: new design – bright blue
  • added: new advanced styling element to customise: Slideshow Titles

Whats next?

Since we received some requests to shorten releases cycles, instead of delivering these big updates every few months, we will try to do as asked and reduce the amount of time between updates. Instead of cramming 5 new major features and 5 demos into one release we will try to do 2-3 features and 2-3 demos per release and cut the release cycle in half.

Thats still long enough not to annoy our users with updates, but a good amount shorter for those who use the theme in a lot of projects and need to come up with new styles and solutions on a regular basis :)

    Hi Kriesi, I enjoy the extended support for Bookings – thanks. What I like to see is buying Enfold in other packages as only Standard and Extended at ThemeForest. I buy a copy for each of all of my clients so buying Enfold in packages like 5 copies or 25 copies with a small fee rebate would be nice. Overall I am very happy with your work.

      Totally agree. A “package” option would be nice. Especially if we could get a small rebate on 10, 15, or 20 licenses. Buying in “bulk.”

      We would love to provide something like that but I am afraid its up to theemforest to implement it. We, and other authors have asked for something like this for some time now… hopefully they will eventually add that feature…

    Hi Kriesi,
    great new features again. And talking about features – have you ever considered yet to release a developer version (with gulp/scss & some options to minify and exclude css/js that is not needed)? Would be a big step ahead of the other theme developers! :)

    All I can say is: These are stunning new designs! Very well done!
    I agree with the shorten update releases cycles.

    Would love to see a Campaign Monitor integration next – like the one you have with MailChimp. Any plans for that on the horizon? Thanks

    You guys have done an amazing job. I’ve been using WordPress templates for clients to speed up my work, for almost a decade, and Enfold is by far the most versatile yet easy to use.

    It allows me to custom design unique websites, and develop them in a matter of hours/days instead of weeks.

    Keep up the good work.

    You guys always amaze me with the great support and consistent development to improve what most would class as an already perfect theme. Great work guys and keep up the amazing development.

    Sorry to say, but, except for the “résumé”, the new demos are very poor in therms of the design.
    A very danger move, since there are more competition than ever before, design speaking…
    I do love Enfold, take my critic as a good think, ok?

    I’ve looked everywhere and cannot find where to download the demo files for these new demos.

    Can you please provide a link?


    • Paul Coughlin
      Paul Coughlin says:

      Hey Sean, you should be able to install the demo from within the theme options panel – under ‘demo import’. I don’t think there’s a way to actually download them separately.. could be wrong though!

    Luke says:

    I would like to see different header styles and global templates that allow us to edit one element on one page and it be updated on all pages like on DIVI theme.

    Also when linking buttons, can we have a way to link to items in the media library?

    Keep up the excellent work Kriesi and the team.

    Enfold is one of the most solid themes i have come across in the past 12 years or so designing and developing custom websites. It is well made, and very well maintained. As a developer it saves a on of time and helps you get things done faster and more efficiently. I also love the numerous layout and styling options.

    Keep up the good work team Kriesi : )
