We are glad to inform about our latest release of EF4 Framework for Joomla templates which comes with some interesting new features. Let's take a closer look at them.
We have added a possibility to load Google Web Fonts as local fonts instead of loading them from the Google servers. Our framework downloads the font and includes them into the template's head automatically. Why this feature is interesting? Because you can be sure that your fonts will be 100% GDPR complaint.
The Local Google Fonts can be easily enabled in the template parameters:
Google Web Fonts loaded traditionally:
Google Web Fonts loaded locally:
We have enabled full HTML5 support for the EF4 framework to fix warnings reported in W3C markup validation.
Now you can choose whether you want to use FontAwesome4 or FontAwesome5 free icons in your Joomla template. The icons are loaded locally so they are GDPR complaint.
This feature is interesting for users who modify template files. You can copy a layout file to the [template-name]/html/[template-name]/tpl/ or a block file to [template-name]/html/[template-name]/tpl/blocks/ to override the default file. This way you can be sure that your changes will not be lost after the template update.
The above features are only part of the work we did on the occasion of the update. Check the changelog for the rest of improvements.
Let us know what you think about new features, would you like to have them on your website?
