Bricks 1.3.6 introduces several new features and improvements, along with numerous bug fixes to enhance the user experience and functionality. Key new features include the introduction of a Template & Theme Style Exclude Condition, an upgrade of the text editor to Rich Text, and the addition of quick edit links in the WP Admin Bar for easier access. The update also brings code completion capabilities in the builder through Emmet, support for responsive background videos, and content support for pseudo-elements.

Significant improvements are evident in the Edit Element Panel, where the “Reset style” icon is now more accessible, and in the Post Navigation and Image Caption features, which see enhanced functionality and user interaction.

On the bug-fix front, the update tackles issues across various components. It resolves problems in the Text Element, Accordion, and Code Control within the builder, enhances Dynamic Data rendering, and fixes issues with global classes, popup controls, and inline text editing. Additionally, it addresses specific issues in the Sticky Header, Structure Panel, and Post Navigation, contributing to a smoother and more reliable building experience in Bricks.
