Lightbox Added to SiteOrigin Premium

We’re excited to announce a new addon for SiteOrigin Premium, the lightbox. A lightbox showcases images and galleries in an overlay that dims surrounding content and focusses your user’s attention. From SiteOrigin Premium version 1.0.4 onwards you’ll be able to add a lightbox to the following SiteOrigin Widgets:

  • SiteOrigin Image Widget
  • SiteOrigin Image Grid Widget
  • SiteOrigin Simple Masonry Widget
  • SiteOrigin Slider Widget

Masonry Blog Layout Added to Unwind

We’re pleased to announce our Unwind theme (awesome for blogging and WooCommerce) now has a Masonry blog layout. If you’ve never seen Masonry in action, check out the demo. Be sure to resize your browser to see the effects.

Unwind now offers five different blog layouts to choose from. The blog layout setting can be found at CustomizeTheme SettingsBlogBlog Archive Layout. It’s also easy to insert a loop of posts on any of your pages that make use of Page Builder by SiteOrigin. With Page Builder activated go to any page, click the Page Builder tab, insert a new widget, search for the Post Loop widget and insert it. Finally, use the Template drop-down to choose the design you’d like to use.

New Header Layouts for Unwind

Unwind is our beautiful blogging and WooCommerce theme, perfect for creators of all types. Version 1.0.8 added three new header layouts. These new header layouts make Unwind even more flexible, each offering a unique look and feel.

If you’re already using Unwind you’ll find the header layouts at AppearanceCustomizeTheme SettingsHeaderHeader Design.

Let’s take a look.

Page Builder Copy Paste

 

The recent Page Builder 2.5 update added a huge feature that I’m excited to share with you – the ability to copy and paste rows and widgets. It will significantly reduce the amount of time it takes you to build new Page Builder pages.

It’s always been our goal to make Page Builder fast, and we feel like the admin interface is the best place to give you this raw speed. Frontend editors are great! Page Builder has its own Live Editor, which we’re aiming to improve a lot over the next few releases, but the admin interface is where you can construct pages in absolute record time. This is especially true if you’re a seasoned Page Builder user.
