Introducing New Floating Images Animations

by Jan 18, 2022Announcements, Pixel Modules

It’s been a while since the last update, but today we’d like to present you a brand new version of Divi Pixel with some exciting new features and improvements. 🤩

It’s not a big update but our team has been working hard to make some improvements and most importantly add new features that you’ve been asking about. The biggest improvement are the new animations which we added to the Floating Images module but there are of course a few more changes that I would like to mention. If you’d like to know more, read on.

New Floating Images Animations

The Floating Images module allows you to add several images and bring them to life thanks to the beautiful floating animations. Initially, we only had 2 animations to choose from, horizontal and vertical, and that was a kind of limitation. In this update, we have added 9 new animations to choose from, so you can create more advanced and unique sections with animated images.

Furthermore, we improved the animation performance as the transition code was sometimes overwritten by Divi so the animations weren’t always smooth. We also updated the default values for image position, animation delay and animation speed so using the Floating Images module is now even more enjoyable and user friendly.

Language option for Google reviews

The Divi Pixel Testimonial Slider module allows you to import reviews from Google Places and display them on your Divi page with the help of a beautiful slider. Google API automatically translates reviews according to the language options set for the device from which connection requests are made. A lot of users couldn’t handle it, so we decided to add an option where you can select a language for the fetched Google reviews. This new option is available in plugin settings (Divi → Divi Pixel → Settings).

In this update, we also added one handy option that allows you to exclude or include reviews using a post ID. This new options can be found in the module settings.

New social network icons added

Divi Pixel not only allows you to easily and quickly add a button to the main menu, but also social icons to the header, second header or footer. These icons can be customized using the options available in the Theme Customizer. In this update, two new social networks you requested have been added.

If your favorite social media platform is missing, don’t hesitate to open a support ticket and ask for it. We’ll be happy to add it in the next version.


More fixes and improvements

In this version of the plugin, we have fixed a dozen minor issues that some users may have encountered. Below are some of the most important ones I’d like to mention but if you would like to see the full list, please see the change log.

SVG Animator not working in Safari
In the last update, we added a new SVG Animator module that adds gorgeous and eye-catching drawing effects to your Divi website. We have received several reports of a problem displaying animated images in the Safari browser. It took us a while to get to the bottom of it. The problem was quite simple. Safari needs default values for width and height, so we have defined both values to 100%, and now the problem is solved.

Menu hover effect applies to centered logo
Divi Pixel allows you to add animations to the menu items. There are as many as 12 effects to choose from. In this update, we fixed an issue where the effect menu was applied to the logo as well when the centered header was used.

Blog Slider order issue fixed
Customers reported that the random order in our Blog Slider module was not working. After checking it, it turned out to be true and we quickly dealt with it – it was a typo in the code. Sometimes it’s that easy to solve an issue.

That’s it for today. Next time, we have some surprises for you. Our team is working on new modules as well as beautiful Divi Pixel Layout Packs that you can use for your projects so stay tuned. We’ll be in touch soon 🙂
