Divi Children Changelog
- Released: 2022-04-06.
- Fixed some bugs that produced undefined variable and other PHP notices.
- Fixed a PHP error that under some circumstances prevented the Divi Visual Builder from loading correctly (some users reported that the loading was timed out).
- Fixed a bug in the General Settings – Lists section of the child theme customizer that prevented the appropriate font size sliders from appearing when the ‘Set specific font size for UL’ or ‘Set specific font size for OL’ options were selected.
- New social icons make now use of FontAwesome icons (for the sake of your website’s performance, FontAwesome icon fonts will not be loaded unless you use at least one FontAwesome icon).
- Google+ deleted from the available social icons list.
- Flickr spelling corrected (`Flikr’ was previously used). This was a problem inherited from the Divi parent theme, and that has not been corrected on the Divi theme yet (for example, Divi 4.15.1 still displays the Flickr icon with the “et-social-flikr” CSS class).
- Fix: some customization settings for header social icons were not working due to a change in some Divi CSS selectors with no backward compatibility.
- Fix: some footer and header social icons were not displayed if no Divi Social Media Follow module was used on the page.
- Fix: missing code for the display of MySpace and Tumblr icons.
