3.2.1 - Protostar - Pro only


Important for notice before you upgrade to Smart Slider 3.2.

Smart Slider 3.2 use the CSS technique called Flexbox. We tested it on every modern browser and there is no issue. But it might be not supported in very old browsers. If you need to support those old browsers, we suggest you stay on Smart Slider 3.1.

Before the update, we suggest you to do full backup of your site or just backup the MySQL tables of Smart Slider before the update as after you installed Smart Slider 3.2, you won't be able to downgrade to Smart Slider 3.1. Tables are: *_nextend2_image_storage, *_nextend2_section_storage, *_nextend2_smartslider3_generators, *_nextend2_smartslider3_sliders, *_nextend2_smartslider3_sliders_xref, *_nextend2_smartslider3_slides

Important for Picasa generator users

Google deprecated Picasa and changed a lot of things. Because of this, we had to rewrite our Picasa/Google Photos generator, which will need you to create an API, so you will have to set up your generator again! Check out its documentation for the instructions.

Important for Facebook generator users

The API library we used for our Facebook generator had to be updated to their latest API, because Facebook stopped supporting the previous API. Because of that you will have to request a new token, as you see here!
