GP Premium 1.5

GP Premium 1.5 has been released! This is a big update which revolves around the Blog add-on.

Since this update cleans up the Customizer and overall structure of the add-on, please be sure to perform a database backup before updating.

Blog options relocated

Instead of our blog options being inside their own panel, they’ve been moved into the Layout panel in the Customizer.

More checkboxes

Instead of a bunch of select dropdown options, we’ve migrated those controls so they’re checkboxes now. Less clicks and less space taken up in the Customizer. This means when you first install GPP 1.5, a function runs which migrates your existing options so they’re compatible with checkboxes.

Columns == Masonry

Before, our Columns and Masonry options were separated, which doesn’t make much sense. Now the options are combined into one small area – first you enable columns, then you can enable masonry within those columns. Again, your options will be migrated automatically when you update, so you shouldn’t notice any difference on your website.

No more “Full width posts” within columns

Before, we had a “Full Width Post” option when we were using columns. This has been changed to a “Featured post” option, which isn’t necessarily full width. If you’re using two columns, the featured post will be one column. If you have three columns, it will take up 2/3 columns and so on..

New image resizer

The image resizing library has been replaced in 1.5. We were using Aqua Resizer, which is an on-the-fly image resizer. Now we’re using Image Processing Queue, which is way more server friendly and supports responsive images. You may need to reload any pages with resized images once to tell the new library to resize them.

Single post meta options

You can now choose to enable or disable your individual post meta items (author, date, categories etc..) on single posts as well as archives.

Single featured image options

The same options you had for regular featured images, you now have for featured images on single posts. That includes sizing and alignment!

Remove padding around featured images

We’ve added an option to remove the spacing around your featured images when they’re centered. This makes them hug the surrounding container.

Infinite scroll whenever

You can choose to use infinite scroll – with or without a load more button – regardless of using masonry or not.

Copyright panel moved

The Copyright panel has been moved into Layout > Footer.

  1. Thanks Alot Tom …………. Thanks Brother For Upgrading the GP theme…
    and our support is with You ……….. Best of Luck I will Pray For Your Success .. thanks again

  2. Looks very good! Now I want to re-do my blog again and take advantage of these news. My only remaining thought about blog is I think the previous/next post link is too discreet and can easily be missed, but I guess that can easily be changed with some CSS.
