Knowledge base style and typography

This one was needed for quite some time. Now you can really tweak typography of your knowledge base content. First of all, we’ve added selector and loader for 732 Google Fonts.

Using this font loader you can setup virtually any appearance for your text, but what is also important, you can now use the theme font and do not load any additional resources.

Of course, you can set font sizes and line height as well.

Also, it is now possible to set colors for text, H1-H6 heading and links, sou can modify content colors to better match your theme.

Widget styles

As you could probably see on the demo already, we added some widget styles as well. Currently you can change font sizes for headings and content, colors and background of KB sidebars.

Breadcrumbs

Another useful feature is advanced styling options for breadcrumbs. Now you can change font size, colors, adjust paddings, set background to color or image and even add gradient or pattern overlay to them.

Which means now you can make your breadcrumbs look something like this.

Of course you can choose a more subtle design, but at least now you can fully control how your breadcrumbs look.

Conclusion

These are the key changes for this release. We excluded some of the planned features, because it was time to add some documentation.

Next release will be focused on content restrictions, since this was requested by many customers already.
