Introducing the new feature "Matrix variables", new release of js file, Jimdo parallax, custom captions, new release of Zodiac framework and much more
01. New Release of Matrix 1.8.2
In section 'Updates' of Matrix Themes menu you can find a new file 'Matrix-1.8.2.min.js'.
You'll need to replace the previous version you're using on your website ( Design> Custom Template> Files )
What's new in Matrix 1.8.2
Updated YTPlayer plugin which caused
the problem in MacOs Big Sur.
Added parallax-scroll.js (
Currently this plugin has been replaced by other plugins and it's not available in shortcodes. I added it because if you're using a template with matrix-1.6.js or
previous, you don't need to update the js part in HTML )
Removed Instagram feed and countdown js
files. These 2 plugins can be used as a separate file included in shortcode, so when you update your website with matrix-1.8.2.js, you'll need to update the widget as well.
Added Jimdo parallax ( you can add a
parallax image using a standard Jimdo module 'Photo' or 'Text with Photo' )
Added Matrix variables ( see details below )
02. Matrix Variables
The Matrix variables replace the previous feature 'Play of columns' ( you can use the both ones anyway) and allow to use the same functions like play of columns but without any js code
How it works
Matrix variables can be used only inside the module 'Columns' , added in Widget/HTML with the following options:
Adding the variables inside of the columns in footer, you can display the
logo image with draggable options. You need to use only one column except Hafen theme which comes with 2 columns
<var> draggable-logo </var>
02Draggable hero title
Adding the variables inside of the columns in content section, you display
the hero title with any Jimdo module edited directly in hero section
<var> draggable-hero color-white g-font </var>
03Wrapping the background color
You can add the background color to any module
<var> hs-fullwidth bg-primary color-white </var>
