Enfold 3.6: Gym + Fitness App and Health Coach Demo

The demos of Enfold 3.6 focus on the healthy side of life

We thought it would be fun to create a few demos based on a common theme, so with this update we are introducing a very bold Gym demo, a friendly Health Coach demo and a one page Mobile (Fitness) App Demo.

As always we have tried to bring something unique to each of those demos. The cool thing is, that at this point, there is often not much needed in terms of additional features… just some imagination.

WordPress Developers: Your Complete Guide to Conquering CSS in 2016

CSS can be a divisive technology…

For some, it’s a wonderfully flexible presentational technology that they love bending to their will.

For others, it’s a near incomprehensible series of fractal layout hacks that make accomplishing something as simple as vertically centering an element a cause for celebration.

Like it or loath it as a developer though, there’s no getting around CSS when it comes to making sure your site looks as ship-shape as possible for your users. – Read more –

Framework Security Update and Newsletter Release

This weekend we have updated all themes that use the latest version of our AviaFramework (basically every theme listed on our theme overview page)

If you are using one of them, we recommend you to update your theme to the latest version since we improved security of multiple scripts. We are not aware of any sites that got compromised or even attacked by using those scripts, and its also rather unlikely that this will happen, due to the requirements necessary to do so. Updating is nevertheless the smart thing to do – as they say: better be safe than sorry ;)

We also got something new to get information like this faster to our customers:

How to Create Your Own Awesome Landing Pages with Enfold

You never get a second chance to make a first impression and that’s nowhere truer than online.

User attention spans are notoriously short and competition has never been fiercer. Sooner or later, every site owner will be forced to bite the bullet and start building landing pages.

We recently covered five key lessons to be learned from classic landing page implementations here on Kriesi. This time around, we’re going to move from admiring the work of others to actually using the power of Enfold to build your own.

We’ll briefly recap the key points you should be hitting with landing pages, break down the Enfold demo landing page, and introduce the power and flexibility of Enfold’s layout builder to create your own solutions from scratch.

Let’s kick things off with a reminder of the boxes your landing page needs to tick.

Enfold Version 3.4 – Newsletter integration, new headers, template builder improvements, new demos and more…

It’s been a while that we had an update this big… 

Version 3.4 of our popular Enfold theme comes with a lot of improvements and features in various areas. What we are especially proud of is the Mailchimp Newsletter integration that lets you connect Enfold without any plugins to your Mailchimp Account, so user can subscribe to your Newsletters directly.

When we startet building the feature the plan was to simply include styles for one of the more common Mailchimp plugins, but we soon discovered that all the plugins (although often well coded and with lots of features) lacked the simple user interface our customers are now used to. So we built our own. And if you have ever used our form builder you will notice that the mailchimp builder is pretty similar and equally easy to use…

But there is so much more than just the Newsletter API…
