New Update: Post Type Builder (PTB v2)

New Update: Post Type Builder (PTB v2)

Post Type Builder (PTB) has been a great tool for non-coders to add custom post types without writing any code. It allows users to build custom advanced sites such as property listing, movie reviews, classified listing, user submission sites, etc. Today we are excited to announce a major update of PTB v2. The new version has added many new features and improvements. It has been improved with better compatibility between the addons and third-party themes/plugins, especially Builder Pro. You can use PTB to add custom post types, taxonomies, and custom fields; then use Builder Pro to design the templates and display the custom fields using the dynamic content feature. This new version is much better than before. We highly recommend you try the update on a staging site before rolling to the live site as it is a major update. If you've built something cool with PTB, please submit it to our showcase or comment in this post. We are planning to feature some user sites created with PTB.

We are happy and proud of our users for their fantastic work. Today we are going to feature another 20 fast loading sites. For more pagespeed sites by our users, see the previous round 1, 2, 3, 4 and showcase.

Themify v7 Official Release – Faster & Better

Themify v7 Official Release – Faster & Better

Today we are proud to announce the long anticipated v7 release! Since our last major update (v5), we've been planning to further improve the pagespeed and performance of our themes and the Builder. The v5 update focused on the frontend pagespeed, whereas v7 is for the backend performance. The main goal is to make our themes faster and with better stability. We've re-coded many components in the backend to optimize the overall code — less database queries and lighter code (PHP/Javascript/CSS). We are happy to see many of our user sites getting A+ score on Google Pagespeed Insights (see some of our featured user sites and showcase). This update will make our themes much faster and better!

A significant frontend change in v7 is the Builder row grid system. We've replaced the old CSS flexbox to CSS grid to handle the Builder grid system. Using the CSS grid gives more layout possibilities such as adding unlimited columns, column re-ordering, and creating tiled-like grids.

This is a big update, so we jumped from version 5 to 7. Due to the data structure and grid system changes, we highly recommend not to downgrade your theme once it is upgraded to v7 (read the important notes at the end of this post for more details). Please be advised that all Builder addons and Builder Pro must be updated as well in order to use with v7. Testing the theme update on a development/staging site is recommended.

AFTER UPDATE: If you have any cache plugin or server-side cache and CDN tools (eg. Cloudflare), please remember to clear their cache. If you have Cloudflare Rocket Loader, server cache and mod_pagespeed enabled and experiencing issues, try to disable them.
