Gutenberg Compatibility in SiteOrigin Page Builder

Gutenberg has made massive strides in 2018. It continues to evolve into what we hope will be a worthy core editor later this year with the release of WordPress 5.0.

We’re doing our bit for the Gutenberg future of WordPress by adding compatibility to all our products. This will be available as a free update before Gutenberg is merged into the WordPress core.

Just like we made our Widgets Bundle widgets available to other page builder plugins, we’re making all our widgets Gutenberg compatible. So you can add our buttons, tabbed layout, maps, etc. to your Gutenberg pages.

Introducing Corp Business Theme

A little earlier this year we released Corp, our new business focused theme. Corp features a professional design, beautiful transitions and is a perfect platform for Page Builder by SiteOrigin or the page builder plugin of your choice. Corp is lightweight, responsive and fast loading. It’s perfectly suited to promoting businesses of all types. If you’re a developer, we’re sure you’ll find Corp a great theme to extend. View the theme demo.

Introducing the Tabs Widget

Following our recent release of the Accordion widget, we’re really pleased to announce our new Tabs widget. Tabs offer a great way to organise and structure content in a small amount of space. Perfect for listing your services, products, page sections or any other content that has a horizontal structure to it.

The Tabs widget is included in the Widgets Bundle plugin release version 1.11.0. SiteOrigin Widgets can be inserted into any page using SiteOrigin Page Builder or any of the other Page Builders that we support. You can also insert widgets into theme widget areas.

New Portfolio Support for Unwind

We’re really pleased to announce Unwind now offers support for Jetpack Portfolio custom post type. If you have a portfolio of any sort that you’d like to show off, Jetpack Portfolio is a great way to do it. View our photography portfolio demo. In this case we’ve built a small portfolio of travel photos. You can use this great feature for showing off a portfolio of any kind of work.

For instructions on activating Jetpack, adding portfolio items and displaying your portfolio, view the documentation.

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.
