David from Page Builder Framework has just announced version 2.3 of his fast, minimalistic WordPress theme. The Premium add-on now comes with exciting new features including footer widgets, white label and multisite support along with Custom Sections improvements.
Footer Widgets & More
- Custom Sections
Categories, Tags and the Archive for registered Custom Post Types are now dynamically fetched and made available as Display Conditions in Custom Sections which now work with the free Elementor version. You can also restrict them to breakpoints.
- White Label & Multisite Support
You can now easily hide the entire white label area once it is configured by checking a checkbox. Additionally, they improved multisite support and fixed a bug where white label settings did not apply to subsites.
- Footer Widgets
Although the Page Builder Framework is actually ideal for use with page builders, it does not require one. It has always been a stand-alone solution for those who want to create a fast website with a minimalist approach. You can now include a fully customizable footer widget section with up to 5 columns in your footer. That said, you no longer need a page builder to create beautiful, multi-column footers.
The Theme Settings page has also received some love in terms of design. Finally, you will notice some performance improvements as WooCommerce related scripts and styles have been removed from non-shop pages. Also check out the changelog for all the other updates, tweaks, and fixes.
UPDATE: In May 2020 David released version 2.4 of the Page Builder Framework and Premium add-on. This update drastically improves the editing experience inside the WordPress customizer. It’s now almost 100% faster than before!
