    Merging The Bookshelf into MD

    MD4.8.5 is out and The bookshelf is now part of the MD core! I've already released a maintenance release for it as well as I had a burst of motivation tonight to build a book template into The Stream! Check out the latest stream post here to see a book I shared: https://marketersdelight.net/stream/ As always you can read the changelog here: https://marketersdelight.net/changelog/

    Merging The Bookshelf into MD

    Hey guys, as part of a new vision I am implementing for MD, I've decided to merge The Bookshelf dropin into the next release in version 4.8.5. The reason for this is to make enabling this feature as easy as clicking a button rather than installing it as a dropin. I know many people who use MD are readers so this will be of use to many of you. It can be a way to share the books you love, create galleries of your own writings, and up your affiliate sales by linking to affiliate links. The larger goal I have by including the Bookshelf into MD is to connect it to other kinds of content you create on your site, like the Stream, and give you a way to display rich book data across your site with ease. I'll explain more shortly, but the Bookshelf is almost ready to go. You can see the thread I posted here on the night I started working on it and see the progress so far: https://marketersdelight.net/stream/77818/ Have any suggestions in the meantime? Let me know here.

    New MD Tutorials

    I'll use this thread to post the latest MD tutorials that make it to the MD blog. As MD4.8 introduced a lot of new stuff, I'll be doing a series on the blog that shows you what you can accomplish with these great new controls! Starting off with a closer look at Google Fonts integration: https://marketersdelight.net/design-google-fonts/
  9. It's been few days since I low-key released the massive new MD 4.8 design system. I decided to slowly roll this update out so I could work with the few brave souls of this forum who have been watching this update unfold. Thanks to you guys taking action, I've been able to monitor how existing site's interact with MD4.8 and feel confident to make the grand announcement to everybody else. Even better, you were gracious enough to share the bugs you found in the update and that's what this new version is all about—cleaning up some loose ends. A special thanks to @camerondare, @V3King, and @Richard Brown for reporting bugs and helping me make the first maintenance release of the MD4.8 series possible! MD4.8.1 is waiting for you in your dashboard and has the following changes: Adjusts content box drop shadow on Teasers layout, adds drop shadow to pagination and archives title if enabled Fixes spacing issues on mobile and desktop with the aligncenter class Fixes links color in Content Spotlight widget Fixes save error on Email Widget Adds bottom margin to the archives title Corrects display bug with Pro Share floating icons Based on how much has changed, I'm glad to report that these bugs are fairly minor and no serious issues have come up with the MD4.8 upgrade. Thanks for all of your support, and be sure to watch the redesigned MD blog for new tutorials and content!

    Thanks, Callum! And that sounds like a great idea. I'm almost done the announcement post and it really does a great job outlining the new features and the intention behind them which I think you will definitely appreciate.

    MD4.8 Sneak Peaks

    Hey, great question. I'm working on the announcement post now and testing the last details and bug fixes I can find. That being said, I'm shooting for a soft launch this weekend (around Friday) to release to everybody who wants to update, then make a formal announcement to the email list on Monday. Very pleased to hear you will be using MD for a new site, this update will absolutely be a big boost to your efforts.

    I am starting the process of updating some sites I manage to MD4.8. This is how I get the bulk of testing done on new releases - nothing better than real world experience right?

    Amongst many other mini features to be released in MD4.8, we're also getting a new Search page template (in an attempt to add a search box to your websites SERPs): And the perfect touch for an update like this, MD will automatically clean out the unneeded scripts, meta tags, and other junk from loading in the HEAD of your page's document. I also found out that WordPress sets a cookie in the browser of every visitor who fills out their name, email, and website to leave a comment on your site, so MD will also now disable that too. If you need these scripts and cookie feature, you can restore it with a new option in the MD Site Tools:
