Here’s what’s changed in this latest version:

New option to hide post meta on mobile

Post meta is an essential part of a blog. At a glance you can find out who wrote the article, what category it is in, how old it is or how long it will take to read it. Displaying all of this information is ideal, but can become a hassle on a smaller screen.

In the current version, you can disable post meta on a small screen, which keeps your content user-friendly and clean.

Two new custom layout types: Sidebar and Global

The Custom Layouts module has been enhanced with two new amazing features:

The sidebar layout allows you to replace the Blog, LifterLMS or WooCommerce sidebars with the content of the current custom layout. If you just want to add things to these sidebars, you can append or prepend the custom layout’s content to your current sidebar.

The global layout can be used to add global elements that don’t have a specific position on your website. You can add popups or fixed elements as global.

Support for logo translation with Polylang and WPML

A different logo based on the language the website is being viewed in is a feature that our users often request. In the latest version of Neve, you can use WPML’s string translation dashboard or Polylang to have a different logo depending on the language of your website.

New expert starter pages

We’ve started adding a new generation of entry pages called Expert Pages, which are more complex and cover a wider variety of sections and integrations for each niche. Additionally, we’ve started reviewing some of the older sites and converting them to expert sites, and you’ll see that they’ll be available soon.

To support this change, there will be a simpler starter site collection than in the past, as we want to focus on a smaller but more powerful collection of ready-to-use sites that we can keep updating.

You can still access the old starter sites by following this document, but remember that these will no longer receive updates or be tested with the latest versions.

What else?

A lot has happened at Neve’s “brother” in the past month. Otter Blocks. The most exciting news is that we’ve introduced the Otter PRO plugin.

All features of the Block Editor Booster Module have been moved to Otter PRO. So if you are a Neve Pro user, Otter PRO comes automatically and you can install it directly from the WordPress dashboard.

Besides the features you all know and love from the Block Editor Booster module, Otter PRO offers many other elements, like WooCommerce builder blocks, sticky options, comparison charts and much more. A list of Otter PRO ingredients can be found here.

Otter was there Word Camp Europe in Porto. If you attended the conference, we hope you had a great time and visited our booth. If not, we hope you give Otter a try and meet us in person next year! 🤝
