I’ve just released ClickBump version 5.5 to the member’s downloads page. This release has a ton of enhancements over the previous version. The most notable enhancement is the inclusion of the new “Canvas” layout manager. This is a special tab that appears when you are using the “Canvas” premium template skin (a free download to existing ClickBump theme owners via the downloads dashboard).
In addition to the new template layout tools (for site’s running the “Canvas” template skin), you will also notice that the admin panel is significantly faster than previous versions. I’ll discuss more of the new features in 5.5 below, but I want to show you a few of the out of the box design layouts you can get with the new “Canvas” tab.
The default look and feel for the Canvas template is a spartan, clean, no-frills design. However, you can instantly infuse your own unique character and personality into the design via the new point and click options available from the new “Canvas” tab.
For example, here are a few of the hundreds of design possibilities you can achieve via point and click:
More to come…
I will be posting a video walk-through illustrating the new features in 5.5 including:
- New “Canvas” layout manager. Easily customize the default “Canvas” template skin via point and click options.
- Slider anywhere – you can now include the slider widget anywhere throughout the site. Previously you could only include it on the home page. In addition, when the slider is enabled on category landing pages, it automatically rotates through the posts in the category.
- Enhanced colorpicker options. You can now directly input hex numbers (or use the colorpicker as before)
