When we launched WooDojo just over a month ago, a new product was released as our first “WooDojo-Released” product. This product is our WooSidebars plugin.
For those not yet using WooDojo, WooSidebars is a new plugin that has been developed from the ground up to be able to customise the widget areas in a theme, according to a context, without any code… in any theme that contains dynamic widget areas (which, today, is most themes).
WooSidebars version 1.1.0
This week sees WooSidebars evolve with a version 1.1.0 update. This update brings with it several enhancements, including further integration with our popular WooCommerce plugin, currently powering many WordPress online stores. WooSidebars now contains functionality, if WooCommerce is active, to create customised widget areas for each of the WooCommerce pages, specific products, product categories, product tags and products in specific categories or with specific tags. This provides even more granular control over what content is displayed in the widget areas in different areas of your website.
WooSidebars version 1.1.0 also includes automatic updates, meaning this should be the last manual upgrade required for WooSidebars. Further updates and integrations are on the cards for future updates to WooSidebars, so keep an eye on our blog for more information.
WooDojo welcomes a new member to the family… with more on the way
This week, we’ve launched a new feature, downloadable through WooDojo, called “HTML Term Descriptions”. This feature transforms the “Description” field displayed when adding or editing categories, tags and other taxonomies into a WYSIWYG editor, allowing for HTML markup to be added to these fields.
This would be displayed, if your theme supports archive descriptions (FYI: many WooThemes themes do support this) on your category, tag or taxonomy archives.
As with all things Woo, we’ve got a bunch of features currently in our development queue, which we’re eager to share with you all. Keep an eye on our blog for more information.
If you’ve got any ideas for WooDojo features, we’re all ears. Please share your ideas with us on our WooIdeas Board.
