Version 1.1.0 of Showcase, the Easy Digital Downloads theme, was released this week. It includes the following new features:
You can now use a video in place of your featured image, if you wish. This gives you more flexibility in promoting your products, opening up the possibility of using explainer videos.
Extra homepage sections
The homepage now has room for 8 sections, giving you greater scope to create a truly engaging and unique first impression for your customers.
There is also a new content type for the homepage: pricing tables. These work especially well if you have variable pricing for your products.
Block color backgrounds
The image background for hero banners is one of Showcase’s unique features. In 1.1.0, you can now add a block color background as well. You can also set overlay patterns at the page/post level if you wish.
Check out the demo to see the new features in action.
