Toolset 1.6.8 – Compatibility with WordPress 6.3, Block Plugins, and More
We just rolled out Toolset 1.6.8, designed for seamless compatibility with WordPress 6.3. This release also includes updates for major Toolset plugins.
Additionally, both WordPress 6.3 and Toolset 1.6.8 no longer support PHP 5.6, making PHP 7.0 the minimum required version.
What’s New in WordPress 6.3
WordPress 6.3 comes with enhancements across the board. Key features include:
- Enhanced Site Editor to navigate, edit pages, styles, templates, and content effortlessly
- Performance upgrades with 170+ improvements, including support for PHP versions 8.0, 8.1, and 8.2
- A revamped Command Palette for swift, hassle-free site editing
- Usability updates for an intuitive editing experience with toolbar upgrades, improved padding controls, and a new area for managing patterns
Toolset’s Compatibility with WordPress 6.3
To make Toolset 1.6.8 fully compatible with WordPress 6.3, we resolved several compatibility issues, including:
- Hidden selectors when editing Content Templates
- Console errors due to changes in the WordPress editor API
While these issues posed no risk of breaking your site, the fixes allow you to enjoy smoother workflows.
Enhanced Compatibility with Block Plugins
Toolset 1.6.8 delivers improved compatibility with the Stackable – Gutenberg Blocks v3.x and Kadence Blocks – Gutenberg Blocks for Page Builder Features v.3.x plugins.
After reviewing our Dynamic Sources integrations, we polished out glitches and enhanced our support for dynamic values as block properties.
For Stackable, we fixed problems with the Image Box, Progress Bar, and Progress Circle blocks. We also checked all Stackable blocks to ensure they support Link and Background properties where possible.
Using the Progress Bar or Progress Circle block with a dynamic source set to the Progress (previously named Value) attribute?
Your block will work as expected on the front end. However, the next time you try to edit it, you may encounter a validation error. To fix this, initiate a block recovery.
For Kadence, we addressed an issue with the Advanced Buttons block. We also reviewed all Kadence blocks to ensure support for extra attributes when available.
