GP Premium 1.6 is a significant update, with a few different features to highlight.
The biggest feature of this update is GeneratePress Sites. We’re entering 1.6 with 21 sites to choose from, thanks to some really talented designers who worked with us.
These are importable sites that are built to give you a head start when building new websites.
Once 1.6 is installed, you can find the sites in Appearance > GeneratePress > Site Library.
These sites include GeneratePress options and demo content. If you already have content, you can choose to only import the GeneratePress options. The demo content should only ever be imported on fresh website with no content.
As time goes on, we’ll be release more and more of these sites, which will be delivered to your Dashboard automatically.
The extra cool part? You can build and sell your own GeneratePress Sites! They’re super easy to export and package up. More on that soon!
Huge thanks to the following awesome people for helping us start our Site Library!
We’ve simplified translations in this version, which is something we’ve been wanting to do for a long time. Instead of each module having separate translations, everything has been merged into one translation file.
This will simplify things for translators, and will prevent the same terms being translated over and over again.
If you’re a translator – please check your translations! This merge of files was a huge job, and there’s bound to be some missing translations that need to be re-added.
Mobile Header + Flexbox
We rebuilt the mobile header in 1.6 to use Flexbox. This simplifies the mobile header considerably, and allows for easier modifications.
We also added a widget area to the navigation, and made it so having a navigation in there isn’t even necessary. You could turn it into an off canvas panel full of widgets super easily!
Along with those changes, we added color and typography options, so you can customize the slideout area.
A smooth scroll option has been added in Customize > General. Turning this option on will allow you to add the
smooth-scroll class to your links, which will force them to smooth scroll to their anchor points.
This option is also integrated with the sticky navigation, so the top of your anchor point isn’t hidden.
One Click Import/Export
The Import/Export module has been re-written from the ground up. It now allows you to export all of your GP options into one file, instead of one for each individual module.
You can still choose to only export individual modules if need be.
