While we are working on major JavaScript optimizations our designer prepared a minor plugin update with a few UI improvements.

New Getting Started Screen

In the new Live Composer page builder update, we changed the location of the Welcome Screen. Now it’s called Getting Started and located in plugin settings. We decided to make this screen always accessible as it has important information on where to find Live Composer documentation and how to get our one-to-one email support.

We also working hard on improving our email list. We are going to send regular updates on the plugin development process and new releases. The new welcome screen includes email subscription form and our social badges.

No More Tutorials by Default

Tutorials is a great feature but mostly used by theme developers to introduce users to the Live Composer. We decided to disable this feature by default to improve settings panel and not confuse new users from WordPress.org.

If you need this feature back, just add the next line into your theme’s functions.php file:

add_filter( 'dslc_tutorials', '__return_true' );

What We are Working On

  • Our developers work hard to improve interface speed and stability. They rewrite some functions on pure JS and optimize code to make it use fewer browser resources and work faster.
  • Our designer is working on UI redesign to make Live Composer more native to WordPress users. We also want to improve the structure of the module options panel soon.
  • Support: We also changed the way support works. Forum closed for new postings. All the new support request are served via one to one email conversations.
  • Marketing and PR were neglected for a long time. Now we have experience and resources to give the Live Composer attention it deserves.
  • Community: we are going to invest our time into creating a strong community of users and developers around this plugin. First of all, we will promote and grow our Facebook Group. It will be used by theme users like you to share success stories, web site designs, find new clients, ask questions.
  • Brand: we hired an amazing Japanese illustrator to design a new mascot for the Live Composer. We want to be more friendly and open to the users and not look too serious. Creating websites is a great fun!
  • Marketplace: this is one of the most important aspects for a long time success of our plugin. Our developers work on new powerful extensions. We are also working on amazing opportunities for 3-rd party developers, to make it easy for them to develop and sell their extensions on our website. Keep tuned, we will make you reach 🙂
