From what I’ve used of VC (not loads to be fair) Unyson seems more user friendly.
Not really. Visual Composer as premium plugin has more elements and front end editor. Tabs, accordions, blog post elements etc are better in Visual Composer. But on the other hand not every theme needs that.
Unyson had some issues in older versions but with every update it is getting better and better and for free framework Unyson is great choice. Although I like to use only page builder extension.
Regarding to customization, both plugins are easy customizable and it is basically the same logic and code for creating custom elements as it is for every other page builder.
sammycorp, you can create custom Layers widgets. See Layerswp github page for more info.
I would try with sans serif font and smaller font for “user friendly” headline.
What is recommended for use in themes now?
2.5.0 alpha version https://github.com/thomasgriffin/TGM-Plugin-Activation
More space or smaller font for menu links
For those of you who have been kind enough to test, and have been running 2.4.1, please give the 2.4.2 (pre-release) branch a try: The class file is at https://github.com/thomasgriffin/TGM-Plugin-Activation/blob/2.4.2/class-tgm-plugin-activation.php .
If the early signs are it fixes the bulk installing for the majority of people, we’ll put this out later today or tomorrow as a tagged 2.4.2 final.
The changes, with whitespace changes ignored, can be found here: https://github.com/thomasgriffin/TGM-Plugin-Activation/compare/2.4.1...2.4.2?w=0
It removes the call to the deprecated screen_icon() function (Theme Check flags this), fixes a couple of bulk installer bugs (bulk installer class not found and the bulk installer issue with bundled plugins that emerged in 2.4.1), and also applies a fix for honouring the default path.Please leave any bug reports at https://github.com/thomasgriffin/TGM-Plugin-Activation/issues .
Works for me.
