There is a lot of news in this issue. The Page Builder Framework has been a sleeper theme but people are starting to wake up to its potential. Check out the review mentioned below. PowerPack, Ultimate Addons, and Essential Addons have new features. There are some good Halloween sales. Enjoy!
Tutorials & Reviews
I use the Page Builder Framework theme on Elementor360.com. I have really been enjoying it and created a full walk-through that highlights the features and shows the differences between the free and premium versions. If you are considering the Page Builder Framework then this will give you a good insight into what it offers. The author of the Page Builder Framework theme doesn’t toot his own horn. The theme is understated. If you already have the theme then you might find some features that you did not realize it has.
Tutorial on Customizing Fluent Forms with Essential Addons
The Fluent Forms team published a tutorial on how to use the Essential Addons form styler. If you own Essential Addons and are wondering about the integration then this tutorial shows how they work together. Fluent Forms currently has a 50% off sale on their lifetime package.
Suki 1.1 WooCommerce and Usability Enhancements
In addition to general speed improvements, Suki 1.1 adds a number of enhancement to existing WooCommerce modules, such as better product filter styles, plus and minus quantity increments, and column layouts options for cart and checkout pages. There is a new mobile optimized cart layout that is very attractive. It also adds a central color palette that is usable within the Customizer but also carries over to Gutenberg and Elementor. Visit the Suki website.
Page Builder Framework Updates
A couple of features in the latest releases of the Page Builder Framework theme. With 2.1 the free theme now supports the full theming features of Elementor Pro and Beaver Themer. This was previously only available in the premium addon. Also, the premium addon now has more post layout options (available to custom post types as well): a boxed layout with responsive padding and background color controls and new font sizing controls.
Wallace Inline Adds Elementor Support
Wallace Inline is a plugin that adds direct front-end editing features. It has previously only been available for Beaver Builder, but the author has just released initial support for Elementor.
Ultimate Addons New User Registration Form Widget
Ultimate Addons just added a widget that allows you to style and customize the WordPress user registration form. You can brand it, add custom fields, and style it all within Elementor. The forms are mobile responsive and include honeypot and reCaptcha features to fight spam.
Ultimate Addons New Table of Contents Widget
Ultimate Addons just added a Table of Contents widget to their Elementor addon package. It automatically picks up headings on the page and generates the TOC. You can manually choose which items to include. There are a number of styling options and you can collapse content as well.
New Essential Addons Form Stylers for Fluent Forms and weForms
Essential Addons has added form styler widgets for styling forms made with Fluent Forms and weForms. Fluent Forms and weForms both currently have live time deals running. This allows you to style the forms to better match the Elementor page or template.
Essential Addons New Duplicate Post Feature
Essential Addons has added a new feature that allows you to duplicate posts, pages, templates, etc. The new version has a “draft” status and is ready for editing. This is very similar to the functionality of the Duplicate Posts plugin. It is a nice convenience that is not available in default WordPress.
PowerPack Adds New How-To Schema Markup Widget
PowerPack has added a new widget that allows you to create structured how to articles. You can add a title, summary, featured image, tools/requirements, cost, time, and multiple steps. Of course, you can add your own how-to content without using this widget, but the advantage is that the output is structured for Google to pickup and display in search results.
PowerPack Adds Coupon Widget
PowerPack‘s new coupon widget uses a card format, with image, to help you promote coupons and special offers. It has a number of features for different types of offers and links. Multiple coupons can be shown in a grid or carousel. There are a fair number of styling options.
