  • New Features
  • This release features a brand new, much easier to use popup for the documentation. We're now using Bootstrap's "modal" component rather than the soon-to-be-retired WordPress Thickbox. We've also split the documentation up into tabs so that the technical information about the plugin isn't cluttering up the shortcode reference material. This should make the plugin a little less scary for end-users.
  • Added optional "target" parameter to [list-group-item]
  • Added support for new "block", "inline", and "inline-block" parameters in [responsive] introduced in Bootstrap 3.2
  • Remove legacy [icon-white] shortcode (it wasn't documented anyway)

  • Bug Fixes

  • Fixed issue with [carousel] indicators (thanks, mebdev!)
  • Fix any parameters expecting "true", or "false" accepting any input as "true". Now only accepts the word "true"; other input will be ignored and read as "false".
  • Fix bug that prevented CSS classes from being applied to [dropdown-item]s
  • Fixed bug that completely broke [divider] in dropdowns
  • Fix animated progress bar classes


  • Tested to work in WordPress 3.9
  • Fix and document collapsibles "Active" state
  • Fix uninitialized variables causing errors in debug mode
  • Fix "Active" tab, carousel checking, should work better now
  • Fix media button icon in Internet Explorer


  • Support new parameters introduced in Bootstrap 3.1.x

  • Significant rewrite to properly escape inputs
  • [tabs] now supports "pills" and "fade" styles
  • [tabs] and [carousel] now support setting a tab or image other than the first one as "active". If no tab or carousel item is set to "active" the first one is set by default.

  • [list-group-item] now supports optional "type" parameter (Bootstrap 3.1 only)
