Globals
A new service which will improve they way you can edit your site.

When you update that global module, it will update everywhere you added a placeholder for that module.

Search module
You can now add a search box everywhere on your site with the Search Input V1 module. This will make it easier and more obvious for your visitors to search the site. You can even narrow the search down to just search in news items, products, employees, …

Improvements
We added more layout options on the News List V1 and V2 modules, giving you more freedom on the style.

We also added Finnish support in our Cision solution now.
The Welcome Dashboard got a clean up and we highlight our growing WW Kundzon service.

Bugfixes
We fixed some bugs in the new PinMeTo solution and in Vitec.

We made a PinMeTo integration that works together with our recent update with locations in 2.10.8

This way you can connect your locations saved in PinMeTo to your Platform website, to list out offices, members, shops, restaurants, …

Here are some examples with PinMeTo

WW Platform 3.0 is a huge step forward. This will enable Wasabiweb for much greater improvements in WW Platform in the near future and will result in a far more direct support for you. A lot of the changes to 3.0 are done in the background and you, as a client, will not notice so much just now. What will change for you are the following things:

Updates of plugins and WordPress
We opened WW Platform more. You can now updated plugins and WordPress yourself without needing our support. This way, your site will be even more up to date than ever. We’ll keep track of the versions in our new internal tool as well and intervene if a major updates are necessary. No coder will be needed anymore to resolve this in te future. You can also add plugins yourself now. Note though that that doesn’t mean that all plugins will work out-of-the-box with WW Platform. Some might need extra development.

Getting live updates
As soon as your site will get update to version equal or higher then 3.0 you will get live updates on WW Platform. As soon as we make new modules, new features, fix bugs, you will get them straight away the second we deploy them. No more waiting time until we upgrade your site. This way, it could be nice to keep track of all updates on our site. We’re planning on building a mailinglist you can subscribe to too.

Support
Because we will need less and less developers for small issues and updates, we will be able to help you quicker in support. Even if we need to code something for you, deploying that into your life site goes quicker than ever before.

Keep tuned in for future updates! For those using RSS feeds can already use this feed for now.

  • Module: We made a couple of new updates for our new content type ”locations”. This way you can visualise multiple restaurants, offices, shops in a list on a map with
    the Location Search V1 module.  (This requires Google API Keys linked to an account with billing details).

  • Feature: We also updated the Logos V1 to be able to change the padding according to other modules.

  • Feature: You can now set the title sizes on many modules to 50% too.

  • Feature: Contact details in the footer can now be replaced by a free text field.

  • Feature: The update in 2.9.9 to hide the date on news items got extended to the other modules that list news items.
  • Internal: We opened up the back-end to have more possibilities on how we can send mail. This update will make it possible that Platform will be able to work together with more plugins that improve the delivery of mails.
  • Vitec: We created a new module Vitec Sold V1 to show recently sold objects.

Vitec Sold

  • Feature: We added a default styling to use <pre> and <code> in the editor.

  • Internal: We locked the ACF Pro plugin, so it can’t be disabled, since WW Platform needs this module to work.
  • Feature: Now you can hide the date on News List V3. Since this module is used to often show relevant related news articles, some clients prefer to not show the date that is less relevant in this case. Just check the ”Hide date” in the Layout tab of the module.

  • Feature: Update external link support in extra menu in Header V2 and V3.

  • Internal: Clean up deprecated code on archive settings.

  • Bugfix: Fixing a bug when searching for password protected pages.
  • Admin: Improvement on how we work with Google API Keys in the WordPress Administration.
  • Internal: Not all updates are for our clients. Sometimes we update something that will improve our life as developers as well. This update will make the setup process for new projects easier and faster.
