This release introduces multiple significant styling-related changes (plus one possible breaking change in regard to the position). Please read this changelog entry carefully before updating.

Breaking Change

If you experience layout offsets (top, right, left, bottom, z-index) this is most likely because of the removal of the position: relative Bricks default.

You can quickly globally restore this style by adding the following CSS to the style.css file of your Bricks child theme (or via the “Custom CSS” Bricks setting):
[class*=brxe-] { position: relative; }

You can also run the new Add "position: relative" as needed converter option, which adds position: relative to your elements as needed:

If you notice an element that should have position: relative added after the converter, but didn’t, please let us know, so we can improve the converter according to your feedback.

Custom Breakpoints (experimental)

You can now edit the default breakpoints, add your own custom breakpoints, set a different base breakpoint, and use a mobile-first design approach.

Mandatory read:

Also possible in 1.5.1: Custom CSS per breakpoint 😉

Cross-domain copy & paste

Copy & paste Bricks elements & styles cross-domain. As this new solution utilizes the Clipboard API you need to allow the paste in the target when prompted.

If you are using Firefox you need to follow the steps outlined here to enable the cross-site copy & paste:

Dynamic Data: Toggle between tags & actual data

You can now render dynamic data directly inside the builder by enabling the “Render dynamic data text on canvas” setting under Bricks > Settings > Builder > Dynamic Data.

More visual margin & padding UI (& number control)

We’ve retired the old “dimensions” control that we’ve used throughout the builder, which had numbers & units separated and all four directions aligned horizontally in one row with a more intuitive & visual spacing control.

The number + unit control is now also unified into one value (number & unit).
