We are continuously trying to improve your experience with Themify as part of our commitment to deliver the best WordPress themes and plugins. We would like to introduce to you the latest Framework update, titled Cheetah. The Cheetah Framework looks quite similar on the frontend, but is now a complete powerhouse on the backend! A significant change that you'll notice is an increase in speed and performance while using the Themify Builder, and some cool new features that'll allow you to build your site faster and more easily. Please read ahead for the Cheetah Framework's major performance changes!
*Please Note: Both the theme AND all Builder addons on your site must be updated TOGETHER in order to work with the new Cheetah Framework. Updating the theme WITHOUT updating all addons that your site uses will be incompatible with the new Cheetah Framework.
In more detail, if you update your theme, it will automatically be updated with the new Cheetah Framework. The Cheetah Framework requires the latest version of all Builder addons. Therefore you must update all Builder addons along with the theme update. If you experience any difficulty with the update, please contact us immediately using our contact page.
Featured Performance Changes:
Faster Performance: As mentioned, the major improvements in this update are on the backend performance, which you might not notice visually at first. But as you start using the Cheetah Framework, you will notice the improvement in speed. It loads the option lightbox faster, and copying and editing the module works more smoothly.
Dock Module: Now you can dock the module on the right as you edit the module. This allows you to edit your page without having to move the lightbox. You can now fully edit any module (content + styling) even when you're on mobile or tablet mode.
Create a Favourites Module List: Do you have a set of modules that are frequently used? Now you can favourite them on the module panel, so you don't have to go through the long list of modules every time you use it. To favourite or un-favourite a module is very simple - just click on the tiny star icon on the module.
Zoom In/Out & Preview: You can now view your website either zoomed in or out at your leisure! This viewing option has also been updated for the Preview mode, so you can now see the big picture of what your website would look like in its finished form.
Important Upgrade Notes
- All Builder addons MUST be updated to use with the latest theme version.
- If you see any errors or malfunctions, upgrading everything to the latest version might resolve the problem.
We at Themify are constantly striving for the best WordPress user experience. Update to the latest Cheetah Framework (both theme + addons) and get the fastest performance today! Let us know what you think about the latest features in the comments below. We look forward to hearing from you all.
