Updated ‘Video Maps’ block

As we keep on building more themes we make sure all layout blocks are adapted as well — to supplement the new themes. A recent example is the layout block for maps, Video map, which has been updated to work with the new, responsive themes.

To try it out, simply go to Design -> Site Layout in the 23 Video backend and find the block in the dropdown “Add a new block”. If the site you’re managing is running an old version of this block, simply add the block again and you’ll immediately have the responsive(nice)ness activated.

A brand new design tool: Theme options

Theme options is a result of us rolling out many new changes to the design tools of 23 Video. This allows developers to set up options for their themes — options that can be used by end-users to tweak the design.

Theme options can include colors, logos, fonts, and much more. The choices made by users are available to developers in Sass, Liquid, CSS and JavaScript, and when an options changes the entire site design is automatically rebuilt.

To check it out, visit Design -> Theme Options in the 23 Video backend. The options you create will automatically be added as a option card for customization of the current theme.
