If you’ve not yet heard, WordPress.org has mandated there be NO settings API based option panels of any kind for themes hosted on Wordpress.org. Existing themes still using option panels will be required to remove said panels and add customizer ONLY options before updating. New themes must adhere to this new guideline, or be rejected. The Wordpress.org theme review team has essentially stopped Wordpress.org theme devs from using most option frameworks. Fear not, we have a solution. We are enhancing Redux to work fully in the Customizer!

Complete Customizer Integration

Pain for WordPress.org devs

If you’ve not yet heard, WordPress.org has mandated there be NO Settings API based option panels of any kind for themes hosted on WordPress.org. All existing themes still using these option panels will be required to remove said panels and add customizer ONLY options before updating. All new themes must adhere to this new guideline, or be rejected. In one fell swoop, the WordPress.org theme review team has essentially stopped WordPress.org theme devs from using most option frameworks.

Fear not, weary coders!

Team Redux resumed working on a feature we’ve been planning for quite some time: Complete WordPress Customizer Integration! We’re working to make every single field Redux has to be available within the Customizer!

How’s it going to work?

Part 1 – Give Back

We’re going to update the Redux core and mirror every field our sister project – Kirki – has to offer. Those fields will be free for everyone! We’ll have that done within the next 4 months.

Part 2 – Advanced Customizer Extension

We’re taking the customizer, and making it a fully-functional panel! Our newest extension in development is the Advanced Customizer. What does it do?

  • Every field Redux has fully functional including dynamic CSS output, typography. etc.
  • Specify section widths and change how the customizer sidebar reacts.
  • Icon capabilities just like in a standard Redux Panel.
  • Dynamically generates the needed class files for ANY extension you may build without ANY effort on your part.
  • And much, much more.

How can you help?

By donating early, so we can bring these new features to Redux quicker. Early donors each get a copy of the Advanced Customizer extension. We also have a few other offers depending on your level of donation.

  • $0 – $99 A copy of the extension at release
  • $100 – $199 Early access to the extension (STARTING TODAY) and 5 product licenses
  • $200+ The early access outlined above, plus Unlimited Products License for this extension

How far along are we? We’re getting there…

We have successfully ported every field Redux has, minus a few exceptions (see below), and made sure they save perfectly to a Redux panel! The overall functionality still needs more work though, to bring in core Redux feature such as required, validation, dynamic css output, and compiler support.

We build extensions for Redux to keep the Redux Framework project alive. These extensions are how we pay for the development time we put in to create or flesh out specific features. That said, with the recent news of WordPress.org’s customizer only requirement, we’d rather not keep all of this offering inside an extension. We’re going to give you what WP.org developers need to build a powerful product. We’ll keep basic customizer functionality in the Redux core, FREE, forever.

Demo

Seeing is believing! We don’t want anyone thinking it’s all smoke an mirrors. Take a peek at our demo: http://demo.redux.io/wp-admin/customize.php

When Will It Be Ready?

Honestly, some developers could ship now provided they are fine without the above features. So if you donate over $100, don’t forget to contact us for an early (stable) version of the Advanced Customizer extension.

The sooner we get donations/preorders, the sooner we’ll have this out. If sufficient contributions come in, we promise to have the customizer fully integrated into the Redux core before October.

    I am more than happy to make a pledge. The Redux Framework is amazing. Is there any way we can get the Redux Core files that enable the fields currently supported by the Customizer, as seen in the demo above?

    I am developing a new theme so the 6 month window WordPress.org has given does not apply.

    The biggest roadblock in my current theme development project is the Typography selectors, but it would also be nice to have all the other supported fields I see in the demo.

    Thanks for all your great work.

        I am not happy with wordpress decision. A bit disappointed as I am working on theme from last three months & at the end I hear this news. I am using redux framework its awesome. Will pledge shortly. But I have questions. While going through Customizer Beta I saw few options missing. Like major one is in Media Uploads > SLIDES missing. Which is most required. Also Typography missing. Are you still working on these module or its removed? Waiting for answer.

        Thanks for great work!

    You promised me an early version 7 days ago and still I have not received anything. In the meantime, I sent the email, the same story, no answer.

    When checking out for the $200 level, the product receipt says 1 Free Customizer License. If you fix this error I’d be happy to pledge.

    2 years ago Reply

    • Kevin

      You are correct. A $200 donation entitles you to unlimited licenses for the product. I’ll attempt to fix the order system here shortly. Even if the receipt says 1, we will still honour the unlimited for the donation. Cheers!

    Hey, Dovy!

    I really appreciate what you have done with Redux Framework. I pledged myself and brought two elite authors to donate. I feel like an evangelist already 😉

    Keep up the good efforts!

      I’m trying to contact someone about getting access to the customizer extension. My first email didn’t get a response. The second and third email bounced back stating info@reduxframework.com “Delivery to the following recipient failed permanently”

        Odd. I ran a quick test on that addy, went through…but then, the site has been going up and down like mad. Try me directly at kevin@reduxframework.com so I can get you access!

          I still haven’t been given access to the extension and the emails I send as followups are bouncing back as undeliverable. Please advise.

      They should be in the advanced version. Are they not?

        Nope, i looked at all sections in the demo admin panel, advanced section has only callback, validation and wpml.

        Also i am not sure that i have the advanced version or not, it is called “advanced_customizer” so i guess it is the one, no?

    It’s been quite some time since the campaign ended. I haven’t gotten any access to this customizer integration? How can I get it? I did pledge and brought 2x$200 contributions.

      Have you received the extension yet? It’s been over a month and I haven’t received the extension or even an email reply to my inquiries. Hopefully, you’ve had better luck.

    Hi, first of all great work. The new Redux Framework seems to be awesome. I would like to pledge $200. But are you still giving access to this customizer integration? Because seems there are some problems reading the comment section.
    Many thanks and have a good day.
