WP Ultimo 1.8.0 and WP Ultimo: Admin Page Creator 1.2.0 – Release Notes

Hello, everyone. It’s time for a new release! Let’s dive in on what’s new in this version!

 

Direct Zapier Integration Support

We released Webhooks support in 1.6.0, but integrating that with Zapier required a few steps that some would consider complex.

Now, WP Ultimo is available as a Zapier App! Integrating it with Zapier is just a matter of selecting WP Ultimo as the Trigger app, selecting an event and connecting it with any of the other apps available on Zapier. Here’s a quick guide on how to get started with that integration.

WP Ultimo is now an App on Zapier!

 

Exporter and Importer for WP Ultimo Settings

Now you are able to export your settings, plans, coupons and more as a backup or to import them into a different network!

This can be accessed via WP Ultimo Settings Export & Import.

You can now Export and Import Settings across Networks

 

Users can now use their own sites as templates

Sometimes our users want to create a bunch of different sites all based on the same concept. Now, if you as a super admin turn that feature on, your users will be able to use their own sites as templates when creating a new site.

Allow your users to use their own sites as templates!
Their sites will then be available for selection!

 

ServerPilot.io Domain Mapping integration with support to autoSSL!

We added a new hosting/server management provider on 1.8.0: ServerPilot. Now you’ll be able to auto-sync mapped domains and subdomains and leverage ServerPilot’s autoSSL feature.

The integration requires additional setup on the wp-config.php file. We cover that on this tutorial.

 

The cPanel integration now syncs subdomains as well!

Since 1.8.0, new sites will have their subdomains added to cPanel’s subdomain panel as well, allowing super admins to leverage cPanel’s features, like autoSSL on some providers. No additional setup is required if you already have the cPanel integration setup, but this does not work retroactively, only applying to new sites created on the network.

 

Custom CSS field for the Login and Sign-up screen on the Customizer

If you visit WP Ultimo Styling and launch the Customizer, you’ll see a new custom CSS option, allowing you to inject CSS onto the login and registration screen!

You can now add Custom CSS directly from the customizer!

 

WP Ultimo: Admin Page Creator 1.2.0 is out and now supports PHP on the HTML mode

To give you even more power with the WP Ultimo: Admin Page Creator, the HTML content mode now supports PHP. This means you can now use php snippets inside your custom pages and they will be correctly parsed and processed.

For the security freaks out there, this does not use PHP’s eval(). The code gets dumped into a temp file before being included and then removed from the disk. This allows us to isolate the code and scope it as needed.

In any case, PHP process is not active by default. It requires that the super admin add the

define( 'WU_APC_ALLOW_PHP_PROCESSING', true ); to hisher /wp-config.php file.

WP Ultimo Admin Page Creator 1.1.0 with Beaver Builder Support and new add-on versions!

We here to announce the cool features we added to some of our add-ons. Keep reading!

WP Ultimo: Admin Page Creator

Beaver Builder Support!

As some of you may be familiar with, Admin Page Creator is a handy add-on that allows super admins to create pages and sub-pages on the sub-sites of your network (your clients’ sites).

Before this version, only two methods of adding content were supported: the default WP Editor and custom HTML code.

Creating custom admin pages: Using the default WP Editor
Creating custom admin pages: Using HTML

Now, if you have Beaver Builder active on your main site, you can also add a Beaver Builder Template!

Now you can also use Beaver Builder Templates!
This is how a Beaver Builder gets rendered on the back-end!

Summarizing: You can bring the entire power of Beaver Builder to your backend pages!

Replace the default content of Admin Pages

Another cool feature added to the Admin Page creator is the ability to replace the contents of default WordPress pages with your custom content. This allow you to create a completely custom Dashboard page for your customers!

Ditch WordPress pages entirely in favor of your custom designs
Dashboard completely replaced using a Beaver Builder template

Append content to the top and bottom of the default WordPress Admin Pages!

This version also allows you to append content to the top and bottom of default WordPress Admin Pages.

This means that instead of replacing the whole dashboard page, for example, you can simply add a custom “welcome” widget using Beaver Builder templates, custom HTML code or the default WordPress editor!

Create custom “widgets” to append to WordPress admin pages
Use the Append mode on the page options
Voilà: A custom Welcome widget using the power of Beaver Builder

Plugin and Theme Manager

We fixed a bunch of small issues users where experiencing with WP Ultimo: Plugin and Theme Manager, and the new version now contains a new exhibition mode: Plugin Style!

This can be changed on WP Ultimo Settings Add-on Settings Plugin and Theme Manager.
