1.2.4 July 23rd, 2015

Save Draft

A lot of LC users click the "Publish Changes" button often to make sure if something unexpected happens they don't lose the content they created. But when working on a live page ( visitors have access to it ) that's not something you'd want to do, you want to publish only when the page is finished.

That's where drafts come in. On the right of the "Publish Changes" button is a new button called "Save Draft". Clicking that will save your changes but not publish them ( not visible to visitors ).

When a draft is saved you can safely disable the editor. When you enable it again the changes will still be there.

Builder Performance/Speed

Those who experienced slow response while building ( changing tabs, loading module options... ) should see a significant improvement in response time. The 5000+ lines of code that powers the page building process has been refactored, a lot of it improved and some of it rewritten.


Module Width

Modules are no longer limited to 100% width of the modules area. Modules now have the same width options as module areas do, allowing more flexibily in creating layouts. The interface is the same as for module areas, just click the icon and set the width.

Starters/Blank Theme - download

With the free starters/blank theme you can build the header/footer with Live Composer as well. It's kind of a bigger feature so if you have any suggestions or thoughts please let us know on the forum.

If you're familiar with LC there's just a few things you need to know to get started:

For Developers

Ability for theme authors to override the LC dashboard updates feature until they test their theme with the latest version.

define( 'THEME_LC_VER', '1.0.5.1' );

If you set that in your theme's functions.php, when LC 1.0.5.2 is released it won't show up until you change it to 1.0.5.2 ( or greater ).


1.0.5


Bigger Changes


Archive Creation

Live Composer is expanding it's influence, you can now create archive ( ex. category ) pages with it as well. In WP Admin > Live Composer > Archive Setting you can set which page should be used as the archive page. All the posts modules will automatically show the correct category when used on an archive page.


Styling Presets

Best way to explain it is with an example. Let's say you use the text module with the same styling on multiple pages and you decide to change the styling. You'd need to change each of those text modules separately, which takes more time than it should. Not anymore, you can now apply presets to modules and then changes to one of those modules will automatically apply to all the other ones that uses that preset. You will find the presets options in each module under Styling > Presets.


Size of LC generated data

The size of the data generated by Live Composer ( all the info about modules on a page ) has been drastically reduced, up to 95% from what it used to be.


Translation Compatibility

Live Composer wasn't fully translatable ( to be honest most of it wasn't translatable ), but that's fixed now, you can properly translate it to your language. Much of the code had to be changed in order to achieve this but it's worth it.
