We start into the new advent season 2021 with our AdventCount plugin release 1.3.0! We have analysed our customer survey done in January as well as our support tickets. Our new features at a glance:
Easier calendar preview: Being logged in, you can see the advent calendar now completely without changing any dates. Now you can see all doors at once. This only applies to administrators and users which have the new “AdventCount Manager” role assigned.
New user role “AdventCount Manager”: We have created a new user role so that you can allow non-administrators to work with AdventCount and see the calendar preview.
“Calendar not started” note: If you want to show your calendar already before the start date, you can now add a custom note. You can use this for letting your visitors know about the start or any other information. The text is freely configurable in the settings.
New help page in plugin: Besides information how you can receive help and support with AdventCount, we have added a system status. If a problem occurs, you can share your settings with us in a support ticket.
We have also added new background images and updated the plugin to our new branding.
We also have enhanced the performance of the plugin. Especially with many participants or a big WordPress database the overall performance has been increased. The user experience improved at several parts of the plugin as well. More details about all the new features, enhancements and bug fixes can be found in our changelog.
