It’s a brand new year and we at Ultimate Addons for Elementor are starting as we mean to go on with our first update. We’re introducing some exciting new features and enhancements.
With this latest UAE 1.36.0 release, we’ve introduced two brand new features – the Twitter Feed and Instagram Feed widgets.
Using these new widgets, including Twitter and Instagram feeds on your website has never been easier!
We’ve also made some improvements to modal popups, posts, and the settings page. And for our WooCommerce users, we’ve got an update for you as well!
Let’s jump in and explore what the latest Ultimate Addons for Elementor update has to offer.
Twitter Feed Widget to Boost Engagement
At Brainstorm Force, we give a lot of importance to the feature requests sent by our audience. One such request was to make it easier to add Twitter feeds to your website.
With this latest UAE release, we’ve done precisely that!
The new Twitter widget makes it super easy to include your feeds anywhere on your WordPress website, without writing any code.
Just drag, drop and start displaying your feeds. Well, almost!
You will have to complete a few straightforward settings, under Settings > UAE > Twitter Feed > Settings first though.
Enter your Twitter Consumer Key and Consumer Secret Key in the required field to link Twitter to the widget.
How do you get these details? We’ve got it covered here in this detailed guide.
Once you’ve entered the details, save the changes.
Next, include your Twitter handle and edit your widget to your liking.
Click Publish to include your Twitter feed on your live site.
Told you it was easy!
Instagram Feed Widget to Enhance User Experience
The next exciting new feature in UAE is the Instagram Feed widget.
With lots of layout options to choose from, making your website look impressive is a piece of cake. Simply add the Instagram widget and start displaying your photos, exactly the way you want.
The widget offers you lots of display options, such as adding an attractive lightbox window, displaying inline post captions, and a lot more.
Adding Instagram to your website includes a few more steps than with Twitter. Don’t worry though, we’ve got you covered in our in-depth guide on how to set up the Instagram feed widget.
With the two new widgets, adding Twitter and Instagram feeds to your website couldn’t get any easier!
In addition to the two new features, we’ve made a few enhancements to existing features.
Here’s a snapshot of what we’ve accomplished:
With Elementor 3.5, your workflow and design capabilities saw some remarkable improvements. In addition to helping you create websites even faster, Elementor 3.5 included the ability to mark widgets as favorites, multi-select widgets, and the drag from desktop tool, to enhance workflow.
With the latest release, UAE is now fully compatible with Elementor 3.5.
When it comes to improving your website’s ranking on search engines, using schema is a must-have SEO tactic. It’s how you get those rich snippets on the search results page that, in turn, drive in a whole lot of traffic to your website.
In addition to the existing how-to schema and FAQ schema, UAE now supports article schema as well.
The Woo – Product widget helps showcase your store products on just about any page on your website. However, there was a limitation when it came to customizing products of a specific category, or for that matter, even finding products within a specific category.
With the new release, we’ve added a CSS class to each product within its category. This way, by applying CSS, you can target a specific category as a CSS class.
We have revamped the design of the UAE settings page so you can find widgets easier than before.
We think you’ll agree that this new design is way more efficient in locating widgets!
We’ve fixed a few issues to ensure a seamless working experience. It’s all part of our dedication to steadily improving Ultimate Addons for Elementor!
If you have faced an issue where the carousel layout breaks when the ‘Categories to Show’ option was set to 3, it’s now fixed.
A few users experienced a console error when a widget with different skins was used multiple times on the same page. Additionally, extra space was seen on the left of the filterable tabs.
The UAE 1.36.0 release fixes both these issues.
Some errors faced while using the image gallery widget were:
- Extra text appearing on filterable tabs when viewing on responsive mode
- Last image overlapping with the first image when the last row is hidden in the justified layout
- Carousel dots and arrows having a black background when using the 2021 theme
- Extra space on the left of the carousel dots
All now fixed!
We’ve now fixed the issue when a cell background color was applied to a row in responsive mode.
UAE 1.36.0 is the first of many new and exciting releases this year. We promise to continue our quest to make Ultimate Addons for Elementor the best plugin for your favorite page builder.
To explore the latest features, update Ultimate Addons for Elementor now.
Until next time, cheers!
