PageLines 2.2! Bootstrap, LESS, Shortcodes & More…

Posted · 32 Comments

The wait is over!  PageLines is excited to announce the release of PageLines Framework 2.2.

Raising the bar was not easy, but through your support, the beer in Ireland, the caffeine in Texas, and the magical power of Unicorns, that bar has been raised a little higher.Framework 2.2 features the same Drag & Drop interface you know and love, but with some notable improvements.

Bootstrap & LESS

Content is king, and with Bootstrap and PageLines you can concentrate on what matters most; having the flexibility to do what you want to do, and how you want to do it.

PageLines 2.2 with LESS & Bootstrap

“Bootstrap is designed to help people of all skill levels—designer or developer, huge nerd or early beginner. Use it as a complete kit or use to start something more complex.”Mark Otto, creator of Bootstrap

Together with PageLines 2.2, and the entire Bootstrap Library, you can build anything you can dream of. Whether it be the next greatest food blog, the next Onion, or that site for your Uncle you said you would build 7 years ago, PageLines 2.2 brings new tools for success.

Framework 2.2 also brings another new friend; Live CSS processing via LESS. – LESS extends CSS with things like variables, mixins, operations and functions. It’s like CSS on crack, and PageLines is the first WordPress Framework that processes and caches for peak performance.

Shortcodes & New Sections

PageLines 2.2 with Shortcodes

With Framework 2.2, we’ve also introduced an entire Shortcode library just waiting to get abused. We have shortcodes for most of the components in Bootstrap, along with shortcodes for buttons and blockquotes, Twitter, Google+, Pinterest, LinkedIn – All there with a few meager clicks. See them all in action on our Demo Site.

We’ve also made several new sections or “inspirations in a box” (a drag & droppable one), and they’re waiting for your creativity. Steer your visitors in the right direction with the new Masthead Section, and keep them there longer with Scroll Spy.  Less drop off, more connection and greater response.  See the new sections in action on our Demo Site.

PageLines Plus

PageLines Plus Membership

With the release of Framework 2.2, we are also introducing PageLines Plus Membership, which offers an extra layer of support, including priority live chat within your WordPress administration panel.  It also offers access to all the plugins, sections and themes (and their updates) developed exclusively by PageLines.  For Plus subscribers, these extensions are available for free.

Best of all?  This PageLines Framework 2.2 upgrade is FREE for current Framework License holders. So where can you obtain said update? It’s already waiting for you in your Launchpad.

PageLines Plus subscribers will also enjoy the benefits of having no upgrade fee should a new version of Framework be released.

Note: We’ve made sure to take into account the wide variety of clients that use PageLines Framework, and that means that all existing PageLines Store plugins, sections and themes are 100% compatible with the new release. Also, no Unicorns were harmed in the making of this version.
