Load Google Font Settings Added for 404 Error Page

Load Google Font Settings

This update brings you the freedom to choose to load Google Fonts according to your necessity. Simply navigate to the Basic option from your frontend sidebar and scroll down to the Error Page option. From here you can enable or disable the ‘Load Google Font’ setting for your Error 404 page.

New Adjustment Settings to the Coming Soon Page

Helix Ultimate v2.0.12

Determine if you would like to show the Page Title, Page Content, and Countdown timer on your Coming Soon page. With this update, you now have an additional setting that allows you to turn these elements on or off as you prefer. To access this feature, go to the Helix Ultimate frontend sidebar, select Basic, scroll down, and expand the Coming Soon option. There you will find the newly added options.

Custom Settings to Customize Your Off-Canvas Menu

Helix Ultimate v2.0.12

A lot of you have been having difficulties customizing your off-canvas menu. Previously, this could be done by customizing your CSS code. But to iron out your difficulties, we have introduced fresh options to fully customize your off-canvas menu. From your Helix Ultimate frontend sidebar choose Presets and enable Custom Style. Here you will find Off-Canvas Menu and upon expanding this section, you will have access to the customization options for your off-canvas menu.

Insert Custom Link for Logo

Helix Ultimate v2.0.12

If you want to add a link to your logo then this update will provide you with the easy way out. Simply select the Basic section from your frontend sidebar and select Logo. You will find a Logo Custom Link field where you can add a link to your logo. 

Get a Password Preview on the Login Page

Helix Ultimate v2.0.12

Previously, Joomla 4 users were unable to preview their password on the login page, causing confusion. However, this has now been resolved with the latest update, and you can now preview your password without any difficulty.

Notable Fixes

This update also brings many fixes and improvements to the issues you might have been facing in Helix Ultimate.

The problem with the Smart Search Highlight in Joomla 4 has been resolved and it should now operate smoothly. Also, an error would occur when using Separator as a Menu Item Type in a submenu item. This issue has been taken care of as well. The issue regarding the ineffective ‘Link Rel Attribute’ when a URL menu item type is used for a menu item has also been resolved. Also previously, the SP Portfolio Images couldn't load correctly if the Lazy Loading was enabled. This problem should also be fixed after this update.

Please go through the changelog again to have a look at the full list of bug fixes and improvements made in this update. 

So what’s the holdup? Update your Helix Ultimate to this latest version now to experience the mentioned changes. And don't forget to let us know your experience regarding the latest version in the comments. Good Luck!

For me the properties of the addons in a single modal window was better, than now with different options that are not well organized.
