Announcement – Version 2.9 is Now Out with Big Changes!

Hey everybody!  We have some exciting stuff to share about Magic Action Box Pro and Ultimate and its new update.

Rebuilding from the ground up: One of the things that we have been working on for a while was the actual framework of the plugin.  The way that the plugin was originally coded didn’t provide the flexibility that we knew that we’d want in the future.  That being said, we did a major overhaul on the code so that MAB would eventually be able to have its own eco-system of user generated templates and features.  In other words, we have been paving the way to allow other MAB users to create add-ons to fit their needs and the needs of others.

Better User Interface (UI): We really want to make this plugin as easy as possible to use.  That being said, we changed the UI around to make it easier to do things.  Fun!

Conflicts with Other Themes and Plugins:  About 3% of the MAB population has this weird error that occurs in which extra paragraph tags are added to their action box – making it look like crap.  MAB now as a “Minify” option that should correct all of that craziness.

Better HTML parser for autoresponders: If you are using an autoresponder that uses funny HTML to create their forms (i.e. not HTML best practices), you shouldn’t have to use a workaround anymore.  With the new email parser code that we’ve developed, everything should work just fine now with your autoresponder.

Sidebar Widget:  You’ve asked for it, now you’ve got it.  Rather than having to use shortcode in your sidebar to have a an Action Box show up, you can now set up an opt-in form using a WordPress widget.  How easy!

More features to come: In the next few months we are going to be adding some more features, to include integration with Gravity Forms so that you can have a killer contact form box.  We also have some really cool surprises coming soon…  stay tuned :).

    That minify option certainly did come in handy when I was playing around with custom designed action boxes. Great work, guys.
