Toolbar Extras

All Changelogs / Toolbar Extras

Version 1.4.0

14 Jan 2019

New:

  • Full support for WordPress 5.0+ new Block Editor (Gutenberg) – set as default “Page Builder” integration (for Toolbar); also supported are popular plugins like “Classic Editor” and “Disable Gutenberg”
  • Lots of additional resource links for Block Editor (Gutenberg) added (can be disabled like other resources)
  • Support for dozens of Block Editor specific Gutenberg Add-On plugins and themes now built-in – see appropriate changelog sections below — the add-on support can be disabled via plugin’s settings
  • You can now set a default Page Builder (in General settings tab) – perfect if you are using the new Block Editor (Gutenberg) for posts but Elementor Page Builder for everything else – this is also in preparation for upcoming Add-Ons for other Page Builders
  • Add new items to the WP Comments Group – as well as the popular newcomer “Thrive Comments” plugin – additional items can be disabled via plugin’s settings
  • Add plugin support for “Thrive Comments” (Premium, by Thrive Themes) – if active it replaces the comments moderation link in the Toolbar with the Thrive Comments Moderation queue, which is only logical (and natural then) – of course this integrates with the before mentioned WP Comments Group support as well 🙂
  • Customize the Howdy/Welcome item on top right corner – replace “Howdy” word, or use complete custom strings; set custom URL
  • Greatly enhanced the “Fallback” item (instead of Main item, in “Build” Group) – if no supported Page Builder active, you can now still set a different icon, name and even URL
  • For Main Item (Build Group) you can now optionally set a custom URL, including the URL target
  • Added more detailed help tabs and enhanced help content throughout – also improved user guidance on different areas of the plugin
  • On user profile pages added short info/description and link to plugin’s settings page (to adjust more stuff for the Toolbar)
  • For Dev Mode – add additional sub page under “Appearance” for the Theme Installer ZIP Uploader – more convenient for admins and site builders testing themes during development phases for example 🙂
  • For Dev Mode – add additional sub page under “Plugins” for the Plugin Installer ZIP Uploader – more convenient for admins and site builders installing and/or testing (premium) plugins
  • For Dev Mode – added (optional) “ID” sub item for viewing Archives, Singles, Taxonomies – makes it easier to determine the ID of a given object/item – and avoids yet another plugin
  • For Dev Mode – added “Newest Plugins” to the plugin installer sub items in the Toolbar (developers often need to test new plugins, this new item saves them a few clicks!)
  • For Dev Mode – added “Newest Themes” to the theme installer sub items in the Toolbar (developers often need to test new themes, this new item saves them a few clicks!)
  • Prepared plugin internally for its first (upcoming) Add-On plugin
  • Added full support for newest features and changes coming with Elementor v2.4.0+, including Elementor Pro v2.4.0+
  • Added “Toolbar Extras” integration with “Elementor Finder” feature – the interactive search since Elementor v2.3.0+
  • Added official and third-party external “Elementor Resources” to the Elementor Finder feature
  • Added the Elementor Tools tasks for “Regnerating CSS” (clear cache) and re-syncing the (external) Template Library to the Toolbar – Note: this is only available within the Admin context, not on the Frontend Toolbar!
  • Added full plugin support for Yoast SEO and Yoast SEO Premium, including re-hooking from the top-level to the Site Group (optional Smart Tweak)
  • Added “Toolbar Tools” submenu to “Tools” (currently pointing to our “Smart Tweaks”)
