Version 6.6 – November 25th, 2015
new: whatsapp share for article on mobile devices
new: added http channel test status in the system status panel. You can now check if the theme is able to get the tweet count, like count etc from your host.
new: filter posts by ID in blocks. You can add/exclude specific posts on all the blocks now.
new: the theme now has it’s own logging system. We can now debug hosting issues easier.
new: a new self diagnosting and self configurating module that allows our theme to pull data from other sites more reliably.
fix: smart list 7 and 8 – sometimes the content was doubled
fix: g+ new icon
misc: video playlist is now more reliable and all the code is loaded only when needed via autoload. The youtube videos information is now collected using just one API call instead of multiple API calls for each videos.
misc: speedbooster 4.2 now supports woocommerce better and moves the style.css to the bottom
misc: the theme panel works better now when adblock is used
misc: all the ajax functionality of the theme is now loaded only when needed
misc: better security checks on all the ajax requests
misc: html is allowed now in the copyright section of the footer
misc: social counter button is clickable on the entire area
misc: the theme’s data source class can now be overwritten from the child theme
misc: all the widgets from the theme are now optimized to work better. The widget_builder class is now deprecated and all the functionality was moved to td_block_widget
misc: the video playlist now downloads the videos metadata on render, not on save post. This allows us to use the playlist on the on click demos.
misc: the following modules of the theme are loaded on demand now: td_log, td_remote_http, td_remote_video, td_data_source, td_video_support, td_more_article_box, td_page_views, td_review, td_ajax. This means that the theme loads them only when needed. We mesured a 10% faster load time after this tweak.
fix: theme animations where incompatible with some plugins and the visual composer gallery. The animations still worked but all of them looked a bit strange.
fix: bug with the demo loader – the dinamic css for a specific demo was still loaded even after the demo was uninstall

fix: image aligment issue when using custom article paddings
fix: the documentation url for demos was wrong in wp-admin
fix: we updated the ads links to point to the right documentation

fix: styling issues with the latest version of BuddyPress
fix: on rare ocassions with some plugins the theme was emitting warnings in the server logs like: “Catchable fatal error: Object of class stdClass could not be converted to string”
fix: error that was showing up in logs when the theme panel was saved
