WP Champion Ver 3.3.2

Is a small maintenance oriented release solely to update integrated plugins:

  • Update Rev Sliderto Ver 6.4.2
  • Update Element Pack to Ver 5.7.4.
  • Update Champion Responsive Menu Plugin to Ver 3.1.33
  • Update Super Elements Plugin to Ver 2.2.3

Both Element Pack and Super Elements have turned out many new widgets in their updates.

 

A reminder that with Element Pack, after updating you should visit the plugin settings and make certain you have toggled to ON all widgets as the default is only to have a basic set active. Also go to the "Other Settings" tab in Element Pack and enable the setting "Template Library (in editor)".

 

Given the simplicity of this update there is no discussion page. The changelog is solely the above.

WP Champion Ver 3.0.0

takes all of the Advanced Menu Child functions & settings and bring them into the theme core as a new settings panel eliminating the need for this child theme.  For those of you who have not utilized the Advanced Menu Child it enabled a container at the top of the page which can contain another menu, woo items, widget areas and more.  Among the many other upgrades in this release we introduced 2 great new features: a google map shortcode that does not need an Google API key, and a world first: the ability to have a revolution slider as a background slider!  We also built mega menu function into our Responsive Menu plugin integration!
