Video Toolkit now supports Facebook Video Embed

Do you want to use Facebook to embed your videos on your Divi Powered website?

If so you will have found that our video toolkit for Divi wasn’t working as expected for these videos. So we fixed it.

We had a report that the tool wasn’t working as well as it should so we updated it and release a new patch today to make it happen for you.

More and more often Facebook is the go to destination for anyone online so supporting the embed of these videos was a real problem we needed to solve.

We had a report last week that it needed to happen for some of our users so we made it work this week with a new release.

Hope you guys like it and remember – we are serious about being the best at responding to our customers. We don’t always get it 100% right but we want to make sure you guys have confidence in how our modules and plugins work.

If you have any issues let us know and we will often have an update in 7 days. If its something more complex sometimes it may take longer however in most cases we will let you know and commit to an update schedule.

 

Auto Play added to Video Toolkit

We recently had a customer request for a new feature. They asked about auto play in our Video Toolkit.

Vimeo and Youtube both have auto play flags in their video embed players.

We thought that was a fantastic idea and very useful so we added it to Video Toolkit. You will see it in the Post Type and Overlay module.

This means when you open the video lightbox it can now auto play the video on load. It is using the default parameters for these players. You can take a look at the screenshot below to see the new Auto Play checkbox.

New Auto Play feature for Divi Video Toolkit

How do I get the Video Toolkit updates?

If you already are using the Divi Framework Video Toolkit just update it in the WordPress updates area. The update will automatically occur.

We also fixed the installation process. You will be asked to instal ACF Pro and we give you a link to it on installation.

Keep an eye out on the knowledge base documentation and other parts of our website for the latest news.

Other update this week?

We have a fair few other updates about to arrive this week including,

  1. our new theme for restaurants
  2. videos and how to guides for the resturant menu plugin
  3. Video and guide for the testimonials plugin
  4. If we get that done as quick as we want we will also start out video tutorial series on Gravity Forms.

Its all go go go here at Divi Framework.

Do you want to see a new feature in any plugin, theme or module?

Let us know and we can work towards an update for that plugin or an all new plugin or feature. We do regular videos and how to’s so don’t be afraid to ask. We may end up doing video series to answer your questions.

How does our FAQ module work?

This is one of our best plugins and has so much power.

We realised that not that many people know how it works or what it does to help simplify your FAQ management.

We release new features every couple of weeks and as it stands we have this currently being run on over 100 WordPress websites.

It would save me a tone of hours every month because it makes FAQ management just so simple.

It currently has 2 modules and a custom post type with custom categories.

To learn more watch the video and take a look at this awesome FAQ plugin in our shop.

Let us know if you have any questions and we are always looking for ideas on how to improve our plugins so reach out to use so we can make our products better and more useful for you.

Thanks

Free OpenTable module for Divi Video

Today we have released a Free OpenTable module for Divi and WordPress, the Open Table Reservation Divi Module for Divi.

The module integrates with the OpenTable booking widget providing a native module so you can easily manage your settings.

This means you can now take bookings directly on your Divi WordPress website for your OpenTable booking system.

This quick video overview gives you an introduction to this free plugin.

Default Behaviours for the Open Table Module for Divi

Free OpenTable module - Module Settings

Free OpenTable module – Module Settings

The OpenTable Divi Module allows you to enter your restaurant ID. You need to get the restaurant id directly from your open table account.

The next option is language. We have a number of options provided by default from OpenTable.

Widget type is a way to select a layout option for your OpenTable reservation method. The plugin provides 4 types – Standard, Wide, Tall and Button Only. I personally would recommend the button type as its simple and loads fast.

The Team at Divi Framework added in the alignment options and the ability to load the widget in an iframe. This can be helpful if you have styling conflicts from your website as the styles will have no conflict issues with an iframe.

The advanced tab provides the normal CSS styling options expected for any Divi Module in the backend.

What Else?

Yeah – its never enough so we also added in some basic styling to help you get the most out of the widget and not have problems with the default Divi Stylesheets from causing render issues. It should work in most cases but remember you have the fallback of the iframe if you have any major problems.

Remember this is also the default OpenTable offering which means you can have confidence in its abilities and it working moving forward, we have simply made a great wrapper for Divi to make it easy to use.

Hope you guys enjoy this one and keep an eye out for even more awesome tools for those of you making restaurant websites over the coming weeks.
