How was EasyBlog 5 Alpha 1? We've received some reports in our EasyBlog 5 Issue Tracker. Based on the reports and our schedule, we're releasing EasyBlog 5 Alpha 2. We've fixed some issues, plus we've unlocked (is this even the right word?) for some blocks.
What are the new available Blocks?
Here are the list of the added blocks in EasyBlog 5 Alpha 2:
More blocks will be available as we progress through the testing phase; we need to ensure that everything runs smoothly before we release more blocks. Download EasyBlog 5 Alpha now and check out those cool blocks. Hey, what's more cooler than sharing your favourite Spotify song on your blog post, aye? :)
For those of you who don't know what blocks are, we have totally created our very own unique composer, in which you can actually drag and drop elements onto your composer instead of using short codes. Do get an EasyBlog license, download EasyBlog 5 Alpha 2 and try it on your local sites. If you prefer to try it on our demo site, you can reach it here.
What About Themes?
We only provided one theme for EasyBlog 5 Alpha 1, and was actually planning to stick to that same theme until we release the full version. However, things were getting really dull in the tester's room; and one of them actually Skype me and said "Dude, I am tired of the this plain theme. I can't imagine what would our users would feel when they tested it".
Just from that simple conversation, we've decided to add some cool new themes for you to play around with. No more boring themes! There might be some bug with the theme so head on to EasyBlog 5's Issue Tracker page and report it to our team. We will check, fix, and push it to the next release.
Can I download it now?
Sure! Head on to the download page and download EasyBlog 5 Alpha 2 release. As before, I would like to strictly remind you that this is an Alpha release; we highly recommend you to refrain from using this on your live site and use it only on your testing site instead.
