Updates

WoodMart 6.3 update announce

The long-awaited update 6.3 is ready and available for download on ThemeForest or through your WordPress admin panel. We have been working for a long time to ensure that our new version gives our users even more opportunities to create their WordPress websites. Separately, we want to thank everyone who took part in our beta testing. It is very important for us to release the most stable version and we take the testing process very seriously. Your help in this is very important and we are very grateful to you.

WooCommerce layouts builder

The main innovation that our users will receive with the 6.3 update is the WooCommerce layouts builder. Now you can create your custom layouts for a product, catalog, cart, and checkout pages using Elementor or WPBakery drag and drop builders. To do this, you do not need to buy or install additional plugins such as Elementor Pro. This functionality is available out of the box in our theme. All the necessary elements to create these pages have been added in our update. You can find this new functionality in a new section in your WordPress dashboard called “Layouts”. Don’t forget to update the WoodMart Core plugin along with the theme.

All new custom shop, product, cart and checkout pages can be imported directly from there. When you click on the “Add new” button there you will see a list of predefined layouts. Choose your layout and click on the “Create layout” button to import it.

Patcher mechanism

In addition, we have added a new patcher mechanism. This feature makes it possible to release small patches immediately after they are reported to support. You don’t have to wait for the next update if there are any problems and don’t need to customize theme files manually. Just click a button and the patch will be applied in a few seconds.

And of course, we also have a number of improvements, new options, and optimizations. You can check out our changelog below. We tried to describe all items in detail with screenshots and links to topics from our forum. If you encounter any problems after the update, please write to us and we will do our best to fix them as soon as possible.
