We are pleased to announce that our new DW Focus 1.2.6 has been released and is available for download today. In addition to compatibility update with WordPress 4.3 Billie, a new DW Mega Menu plugin and revamped theme setting panel have been included.
Brand new DW Megamenu
As planned in our DW Focus 1.2.0 release, we have just built from the ground up a new Mega Menu plugin dedicated for DW Focus theme.
We tried to make DW MegaMenu dead simple that can work seamlessly with WordPress default UI while solving the need of adding a versatile navigation to your site. A few features brought to you in DW MegaMenu:
Intuitive Theme Setting Panel
To ease the configuration steps, we integrate Theme Setting panel into DW Focus 1.2.6. Don’t worry about the conflict if you are using old version DW Focus 1.2.0, all your existing settings that you configured via default customizer remain fully compatible. And here you can take a closer look into the new setting panel:
Update Style constructor of PHP 5 to Container Widgets
You might have checked out the WordPress 4.3 “Billie” released a few days ago. You will see PHP4 style constructors are deprecated in the WordPress core, as a step to prepare for the upcoming PHP7 (expected to launch at the end of this year).
To line up with this change, we had all 3 container widgets (DW Tab, DW Accordion, DW Column) in DW Focus updated using the new style constructors. So you can rest assure, DW Focus is now ready and fully compatible with the latest PHP release, and it causes no change to your existing data on your site.
