Version 6.0.0 is out!

Hey guys! I’m happy to announce that we’ve just released v6.0! It comes with quite a few additions that we’d love to hear your opinion about. Here’s what’s new:

New

  • A new template was added, called “Bold & Bright”. It consists of multiple pages, parallax effects, customizable widgets and ecommerce integration.

  • The UI components built into the app were modernized and expanded. They adapt to the Bootstrap theme that you use and look great on every screen size.

  • You can now search in all panels in the app. This makes it easy to find files, settings and components.

  • A new Download Google Fonts export setting was added. With it the app can automatically download fonts as local files, improving performance and privacy.

  • A View Cart ecommerce component was added, powered by Reflow.

I spent the last 30 minutes not updating until I had finished the project I was working on, the updates look great.

Another brilliant update.

Fax guys this is one of best ones

Awesome update guys, so many new things I love it!

P.S. I checked out the new theme and none of the product stuff is there, just blank template pages, no content

Thank you for the feedback!

@jo-r We can’t seem to reproduce the issue. To be clear, in the New Design dialog you choose the Bold and Bright template, click Customize and enable the “Products” and “Product Page” pages, create the design, and the pages are blank?

Note I moved the posts from the earlier thread by @floydmanfloyd here so that the discussion lives in a single place.

Yah that’s what I’m doing (Mac version). Here’s a couple screenshots of what I see when I have them selected. I didn’t add the Product Page to the Nav since you normally wouldn’t, but even if I do I see the same empty content as below.

Is the second screenshot made in Bootstrap Studio or in the browser? Like all other Ecommerce components, you will need to connect to a Reflow store to see products when previewing and exporting. In the app itself we show mock data if no Reflow stores are connected.

In the browser (Firefox). In BSS there are products on the page and a product is also there in BSS if I open the product page, just nothing shows in the browser. Seems that it should if it’s on the page right?

I also cannot select any of the products on the Products page. Acts like an image, but if I click something in the HTML window it highlights the selected product momentarily in preview even though it’s selected in the HTML window.

I’m going to hazzard a guess that some of this is probably due to my not being familiar with how the Reflow and products etc. are done, but still seems like something “should” show up in the content if it’s in the BSS window.

Hi folks!
Thanks and kudos for the update.
Are there any breaking changes from V5?

It seems that it shows dummy products (in bss only) and doesn’t become active in the browser window until you connect your reflow store. When the store is connected it then gives the option for mock data, clicking this will show the dummy data in bss and the real products in the browser.

This is in any product list, not just in the new theme.

Ahhh ty @richards that makes total sense and was kind of what I was thinking too, but wanted to be sure.

Suggestion/Idea: Can we possibly get a filter for the Custom Publish, or a way to separate the files by type or something? At first I thought they were in alpha order, but after checking more closely there’s assets at the top of the list and at the bottom so I guess it’s not alpha. Some time of filter with a drop-down to choose file types in would be an awesome addition to this feature I think. That would save us some time going up and down that list lol. Lovin’ it! :heartbeat:

You can toggle the files in the Custom Publish dialog by type like this:
custom-publish-type

And you can also use the search to find specific files:
custom-publish-search

Yeah , I guess the search function will work ok for this. Just seems that there should be some type of sorting setup to make it easier is all. The by Type won’t be helpful for me much as I don’t usually do all of a single type, just some or one. This means I still have to scale the whole list to find just the ones you want to check.

Otherwise, one of the nice things about the publishing is that it’s actually faster to upload the full site in BSS than it is in FileZilla. Go figure :stuck_out_tongue:

Not sure if this was intentional, but the setting to make sass partials be invisible is gone. There’s no visibility or hide setting at all.

Amazing, I like the new Template “Bold & Bright” so much!

Is there any quicker way to transform it to dark mode? Or a faster way to switch the colors to suit dark mode for all the pages?

My apology I am a not very experienced, and thank you in advance!

Just change the theme colors.

Could you please indicate exactly where do i go to change this? Thanks, I was only able to change the navbar but i did struggle for the rest.
