Architect v1.3 update released

Architect v1.3 has many enhancements and fixes, and should appear in your WP plugin updates in the next day or so.

The most significant is the slider engine (Slick) has been updated to v1.5.5. This has fixed several quirks with the old one and allowed some new features, including carousel layouts now work correctly.

Architect carousel

To make a slider into a carousel, simply set the Panels Across to greater than 1.

Architect panels across

Some of the change may have a small impact on your existing Blueprints, therefore:

  • Please check all sliders and tabbed layouts still display as expected. If not, edit their Blueprint and resave.
  • With the change of default Animation state to Off, you will need to set any Panels based animations back on.
  • Double check any custom CSS on Sliders & Tabbed navigation.

Buying Architect

Architect can be purchased from the Headway Extend store or the Pizazz Shop. Both sell the identical plugin and can be used with any theme. However, you will need to own Headway to buy Architect there.
