Latest WP Releases 🎉
- WPForms 1.7.7 – In the previous versions of WPForms, you could create advanced form layouts using CSS… but some folks really wanted a no-code method. Now, WPForms Pro includes a more beginner-friendly way of adding column layouts to your forms. The new Layout field splits an area of your form into multiple columns. From there, you can then simply drag and drop fields into the column where you need them.
- JetSmartFilters 3.0.0 – A new convenient and sleek design, Query ID settings for blocks, and fine-tuned Elementor 3.7 compatibility.
- Oxygen Builder 4.1 Alpha 1 – Oxygen 4.1 includes cross-site copy & paste, field expansion for fields with “none” units, and better revisions management.
