We attended WordCamp Sylhet 2024!

The DotCamp Team came together from all over the country to attend WordCamp Sylhet 2024, and we had an incredible time. Last year, Ultimate Blocks proudly sponsored the event, but this year we had the pleasure of joining as attendees.

It was a beautiful, vibrant event, and we made the most of it by connecting with fellow developers and tuning in to the insightful sessions. The energy and enthusiasm were contagious, and we left feeling inspired and more connected to the WordPress community than ever.

So what’s new in Ultimate Blocks?

Now let’s see what’s changes and improvements we’ve made on Ultimate Blocks.

Horizontal Timeline Layout

You can now convert your vertical timeline view into a horizontal timeline and switch between the two. This is super useful for displaying project developments, achieved milestones, and other chronological events.

Learn more about the Timeline block here.

Icon for Each List Item

In the Icon block, you can now change the icon for each list item individually. Simply select an item and use the options panel on the right-hand side to choose a new icon. This is especially useful for highlighting key points and boosting readability. Give it a try!

Visibility Control

Using the Visibility Control option, you can hide or schedule the visibility of a block based on user roles. This can help you tailor content to specific audiences and schedule certain content to appear at certain times (i.e. display time-sensitive announcements).
