Customizr release note ( free v3.5.9+, pro v1.3.3+ )

Dear Customizr theme users,

Here’s the release note for Customizr v3.5.9 (free version) and Customizr Pro (v1.3.3).

This new release is safe for child theme users.


What’s new ?

Page featured images can be displayed before the content.

This new release introduces the possibility of displaying the featured image of a page before its heading and content, just like for the single posts.

This option is disabled by default but you can easily enable it from the live customizer > Content > Single Pages section.

For example, if you have created a contact page and you want to display an nice picture before the page heading, you can now easily do it with this feature.

Note : If you’re not sure what is a featured image or how to set it, head over to this documentation page.


Home post slider improvements

This version fixes a minor issues for the defaut home slider of posts, which will now uses the latest image inserted in a post if no featured image was set.

Enhanced customization experience for sidebar and footer widgets

The Customizr theme now support the so called customizer selective refresh for widgets. This featured was introduced last year in WordPress and greatly improves the customization experience. Instead of doing a full refresh of the page each time you live customize a widget in the customizer, it refreshes only the modified elements of the page.

We are already using the selective refresh feature for the headerand the social links customization.
