Hey folks! It has been a while since I last posted, so I just wanted to give you a heads up on what’s happening over in the Soliloquy department.
I’ve been busy at work launching OptinMonster, and now that it is off the ground, I’ve got lots of updates coming to Soliloquy and the Addons. You’ll notice that I have already pushed out updates for the Instagram and Featured Content Addons, and I am now working on updates for all of the other addons as well.
The next update will come to the Crop Addon. I am moving to a 100% WP-based crop solution that should be much better and more consistent moving forward, and it will allow me to do some cool things with the Thumbnails Addon.
The Thumbnails Addon is about to receive the biggest update that coincides with the Crop Addon. With this update, if you have the Crop Addon active, you can set the width and height for your thumbnails and they will be cropped. I will also be providing support for you to add video thumbnail images as well so that thumbnails work with video sliders.
The Lightbox Addon is getting an update that will allow you to check a box and automatically link all of your images in the slider to themselves so that they can be displayed in the lightbox without you needing to check each individual image. Responsive updates are coming as well.
Woot, this has been done! The Lightbox Addon is now responsive!!! You can also check a setting to autolink the images to the lightbox so that you don’t have to do it to each individual image. Ballin’.
And finally, the Captions Addon is underway. I’m working with this and the Themes Addon to bring more themes and make captions super easy to edit and manage without sacrificing speed or efficiency.
You will also notice an update to Soliloquy that provides some very good speed improvements, too (as if it wasn’t already fast enough!).
Phew, that was a lot, but I am excited. Expect to see all of this rolling out in the next week or so!
