It is with great pleasure to announce the availability of StackIdeas Toolbar; Our first baby step in unifying our look and feel across all of our extensions. Read on to learn more.
Unified Notifications Centre
With StackIdeas Toolbar, we are unifying and centralizing the look-and-feel of the toolbar across all of our extensions. A small step for a greater unification in the future.
Applying the same unifying concept, we have also centralized the compose actions throughout all extensions under one single compose dropdown providing a better user experience for your users.
The toolbar can also be configured to be adaptive too. It can be configured to render different toolbar types depending on which extension pages they are currently on and it can be used in various combinations.
Apart from the built-in menus from our extensions, you can also configure the toolbar to render menus from Joomla too!
With the new toolbar, you can now also set the appearance to be dark mode if your site runs on a dark template and it is also pre-configured with 5 different color schemes.
The dropdown from the toolbar has been greatly improvised for a better user experience by grouping up actions to give users a clearer view of where they can access their items.
When the toolbar module is installed, Foundry framework will also be installed as a library and as a system plugin. Most of our extensions will start to rely on Foundry framework moving forward and we'll be sharing more details about this new awesome framework soon.
As EasyBlog 5.x is still currently serving FontAwesome 4.x, there would be some conflicts with the icons. A temporary solution is to apply the patch below or you could wait for EasyBlog 6.0 which is just around the corner.
This toolbar works across all Joomla 3.x series including Joomla 3.10 and Joomla 4.0 as well.
With the introduction of this new toolbar, we will start to phase out the stock toolbars from our extensions starting with EasyBlog 6.0.
For those who wish to download and try it now, you can head over to our App Store to download it now. It's completely free as long as you have a valid subscription with us.
Last but not least, share your thoughts or feedbacks with us down at the comments section below! We love to hear what you think about the new toolbar.
