Incremental changes are the name of the game at Layers HQ and today we are happy to launch the next batch of useful features, this time for Layers Pro. These include a new “Hide” function and smooth scrolling!
Hide Content on Devices
The first of them is a neat new feature that allows you to hide Widgets and Content Widget Columns on different devices. This is especially useful if you want to reduce the height of your page on a mobile device and don’t necessarily need to show every bit of content on small screens.
Conversely with just a click of a button you can also hide blocks of content on Tablets and Desktop too.
This one has been in high demand and will greatly improve the experience of One Page Websites made with Layers. This new option, available under General Settings in the Customizer, will mean that anchor links will now smoothly scroll to the relevant part of the page. No longer is there an awkward bump.
Background Video Bug Fix
Included in Layers Pro version 1.6.8 is a fix for background videos which are hosted on 3rd party websites such as Vimeo and YouTube. A lot of work has gone into making sure that those dreaded “black bars” no longer appear above or on the sides of your videos, no matter how big or small your sliders are.
Update today and benefit from these awesome new features!
What Have You Built With Layers?
Last but not least, we are in the process of building a brand new section on our site which will showcase all the best sites that have been built with Layers. If you’ve created a site which you’re proud of and want us to feature, then please head over to our new submission page.
Those who get listed will be exposed to our massive audience of passionate Layers users. We can’t wait to see what you’ve created!
