This Toolset release introduces a completely new drag-and-drop editor for your front-end forms. It also adds a Loop index feature to Views for creating beautiful sliders and enumerating your table rows. We also improved the interface and usability for conditional displaying of content, and more.
Introducing the drag-and-drop form editor
Toolset Forms now allows you to create your forms in a visual, drag-and-drop way. Watch the following short video to see it in action.
This is now the default way to build your front-end forms. Use the Expert Mode if you need to edit the form’s HTML markup.
Using the new View Loop index
Toolset Views 2.7.3 adds a new Loop index feature. It outputs the current post’s index (order number) inside a View’s loop. This allows you to:
- Build beautiful sliders with thumbnails. An in-depth tutorial and modules for creating such sliders is coming soon!
- Enumerate rows of a table-based list of posts.
Improved conditional display
Views 2.7.3 brings great improvements to conditional display:
- It now supports checking the data from related posts.
- It features a new syntax for checking against the taxonomy terms assigned to a post.
- It provides an improved user interface for setting and inserting the conditionals.
Other improvements and fixes
We also fixed an issue on WPML multilingual sites related to Views front-end AJAX pagination and searches.
