Today we have a brand new Widgetkit 1.2 release prepared for you! It’s a short follow up to our Widgetkit 1.1 release 3 weeks ago. The new responsiveness of all widgets marked a major step in the evolvement of Widgetkit, and we thought it was about time for some icing on the cake. So, besides the regular bugfixes, we have put some work into the improvement of our Gallery widget.
Gallery Image Management
One of the new features in Widgetkit 1.1 was the drag and drop support for quick and easy gallery uploads. And, as promised back then, with Widgetkit 1.2 we have now added the missing functionalities to make image management with the Gallery widget a breeze. You can now upload and delete images as well as create and remove folders and their images. Finally you don’t rely on FTP or Joomla’s and WordPress’s media managers.
New Transition Effects
On top of the improved image management, we also added two fancy new effects for the Slideshow and Gallery widgets: Rotate and Scale. Both effects fully support touch devices and swiping as well as all modern browser versions. In all older browsers, they will be replaced by a gentle fade.
New Gallery Style
And last but not least, a new style offers you some more variety for your Gallery widgets. The Inside gallery style is a basic slideshow with a neat little thumbnail preview inside the image.
But what are you waiting for – go ahead and give the new Widgetkit a spin! We are excited for your feedback!
