When Themify breaks out of silence, you know something big is about to be released. Over the past few months, we’ve been quietly working on another major update. Today, we are thrilled to announce the Beta version of v7.5. This new version features significant improvements in backend Builder data handling and performance. On the frontend, you can now nest modules inside Accordions and Tabs. Additionally, you can nest unlimited subrows, which were previously limited to one subrow. Last but not least, we’ve added the backend mode on the frontend Builder. Try the Beta version (free) to explore these new features, and let us know what you think.
Nesting Modules in Accordions & Tabs
In the past, to nest modules inside accordions/tabs, you would have had to create a Layout Part and then insert the shortcode into the accordion/tab content. Now, you can drop modules directly inside the accordion/tab content area. This utilizes the subrow logic, allowing you to change the grids and add additional styling to the layouts of accordion/tab content.
With the new version, you can nest an unlimited number of subrows. Each subrow can have its own grid settings and styling. This new feature provides more flexibility to create complex layouts without being restricted to just one subrow.
Inline Edit/Delete for Repeatable Items
When you hover over repeatable items such as Buttons, Icons, Tabs, and Accordions, you will see a small edit and delete button. These inline edit/delete buttons allow you to quickly add or delete repeatable items without having to open the module option lightbox. It’s a nifty time-saver.
If you are a backend editor fan, you will like the backend mode on the frontend. You can quickly toggle between frontend or backend mode in the frontend Builder. The backend mode comes in handy when you have a large layout, as it can reduce the cumbersome task of dragging large modules around.
