Bricks 1.3.3 is a maintenance-focused release, addressing numerous bug fixes and improvements rather than introducing new features. This approach follows a feature-packed previous update, signaling a commitment to refining and stabilizing the platform.
A key change in this version involves updates to SwiperJS arrow CSS classes. Users who have customized their CSS need to adjust the
.swiper-button-next classes to
.bricks-swiper-button-next, respectively. This modification resolves a styling conflict when using the JetPack plugin.
The update introduces several enhancements, including the ability to define image sizes in ACF Dynamic Data, a new setting for center-aligning images in the Carousel Element, and added theme support for wide and full-width alignment in Gutenberg. These features aim to expand the customization capabilities and integration of Bricks with other tools and platforms.
Improvements have been made to enhance the user experience and interface, such as displaying the “Edit with Bricks” option only on relevant post types in the admin bar and limiting error message visibility to users with full access to Bricks. Other notable improvements include enhanced accessibility in the Nav Menu and performance tweaks in the Container Element, particularly when switching between breakpoints.
The update also tackles specific problems like sticky headers overlapping the admin bar, pagination showing even when disabled, compatibility with Rank Math, and application of typography styles in the Accordion. A fix for a TypeError in Gutenberg posts rounds out the update, ensuring smoother operation across various use cases.
Overall, Bricks 1.3.3 focuses on enhancing the stability and reliability of the platform, addressing user feedback and technical issues to improve the web-building experience.
