What’s new in WPFolio 1.7

In the latest release of WPFolio, we’ve added the following cool stuff:

  • A [margin] shortcode for wider margins to help with readability on your site:
    It’s automatic on pages, but overridden on your home page and posts to allow for full, 900px wide images.
  • A new option for image navigation:
    If you’d rather not use a lightbox or slideshow plugin, we’ve added a way to browse your gallery via attachment pages.
  • WPFolio News feed on your Dashboard:
    Keep up to date with the lastest WPFolio releases and check for occasional WordPress tips.

This video gives an overview of these new features and demonstrates how to change the default margin settings to your liking:

    Hi Lara,

    I love the new changes and have recently uploaded the new version. I just watched the video and was wondering how exactly you activate the new gallery setting. I’m still new to this and would love to use the new settings instead of lightbox. I’m sure it’s something simple I am just overlooking. Thank you!

      Thanks, K! Glad you are enjoying 1.7.
      About the gallery – just go to ‘Plugins’ and deactivate your Lightbox plugin. The new navigation should work by default after that.

    I hate to be a bother but I’m so close to being done. I’m trying to filter out a category (id=6) of post from my home page. I found some code but I have it in the wrong place because it has prevented the previous/next links from working properly (they keep loading the same initial page of posts). When I remove this code things work properly but that category of posts I don’t want displayed (of course) have returned. Any help is greatly appreciated. Here’s the code I found, I put it in my child index.php

      Post this on the WP.org forum! Much better platform for discussion and I’ll take a look.
