New Product Video for Social Locker

We created a new video this week for the Social Locker Divi module to better describe this free product.

Check out the video and see if this could work for you.

We use it on our own site to encourage engagement and shares of our content.

Star rating has been added to Testimonials

We had a recent request for star ratings to be added to Divi Testimonials Plugin.

We are pleased to announce that this has been added in version 1.0.6.

To find this new feature you can go to the post type area and select the rating.

It has switches and a colour setting for the stars based on a icon font so you can choose any style colour you would like.

Hope you guys like it, to get the update just make sure you are using your API keys and click update.

Restaurant Child Theme for Divi Video

We have released a really awesome child theme for Restaurants.

Its called Restaurant Child Theme for Divi, no surprises in that name.

It has some many features that we spent a lot of time thinking about to make this the ultimate child theme for your restaurant.

Additional Social Media Icons

We added in 3 new social media icons on this theme. Instagram, Youtube and Trip Advisor are included with configuration options to ensure you can link to the social media you need for a restaurant.

You can access this inside the same location as other social media icon configuration inside your div theme settings.

On the side menu go to Divi > Theme Options and you will find them in the general tab.

Restaurant Menu Plugin

We integrated a specialist plugin to manage food items as well. It has highlights and categories as well as modules to make the placement and selection of food items really simple.

Open Table Reservation Plugin

We included our free Open Table reservation plugin as well so you can take bookings using this great toolkit.

Testimonials Plugin

The Restaurant child theme also includes a really well designed testimonials plugin. This can have testimonials managed with a range of fields and layput options.

This is a powerful plugin that saves us loads of time.

Footer Injector

We have 2 different footer layouts pre loaded so you can choose either the default large footer or a compact smaller footer option.

6 page layouts and customiser settings

We also included each page layout as a seperate file with a customiser settings upload so you can choose how you want to implement this custom child theme for your restaurant.

Overall it has pretty much all the main things we could think of to make a great website for any restaurant.

Take a look at the Restaurant Child Theme for Divi product page for all the screenshots, videos and a link to the live demo.



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.
