Bear CMS's blog
Those of you using Plan PRO, Plan MAX, Plan PRO/S or Plan MAX/S now can add custom fonts to their site. They will help you create even more unique sites and help you easily create textual content that meets specific marketing/branding requirements.

You can find the new option in the settings of your website.

More improvements coming soon.
Improved linking and other improvements
With the latest improvements in Bear CMS, managing your content is even easier.

Let’s take a look.

When linking to other pages on your site, you can now select the target pages instead of copying/typing their URL addresses. In addition to saving time and potential errors, when a page's address changes, all links to that page will automatically be updated and will work as expected.

There is a quick actions button on the toolbar. Here you’ll find an option that will take you to the settings of the page you have currently opened. There is such an option for blog post pages too.

A small icon is now visible in the element’s toolbar that shows the type of the element. This makes it easier to find your way around when you have multiple elements nested within each other.

We'd love to hear your thoughts on these improvements in the comments below.
Brand new designs for personal websites
Bear CMS's blog
We are happy to show you the new styles for Theme Universal. They are specially made for those of you who want to make their own personal site.

Your website can introduce you in a few words and a photo, and link to your social profiles, email address or phone number. Also, when you type your name into Google, it may be your site that comes up first. That’s nice, right?

You can launch such a site in just a couple of minutes. Give it a try.
Bear CMS in 2023
Bear CMS's blog
The past year was extremely successful for Bear CMS. We have added many new features and provided you with many new tools to present yourself and your business even better. We feel successful when you are successful and when more of you trust us for their online presence.

Let's recall the most interesting things around Bear CMS for the past year.

The structural elements Columns, Floating content and Container got new options for presenting content, that make it easier for you to adapt the site for different screen sizes (phone, tablet, laptop, etc.). The Container element can now be a link, too.

We've added the ability to share element styles. The default look of each element is determined by the theme, and with individual or shared styles you can create elements that stand out.

We have updated the ready-made element combinations.

We have released the new and better subscription plans.

We’ve launched the Studio service where we can build a website for you.

We've added new ready-made styles for Theme One and Universal. You can now add optional elements in the Universal’s header.

You can now create animated effects using the new animations and transformations options.

Over the past month, we've added the Slider element, keyboard shortcuts to speed up your work, and many other small improvements.

We hope you’ve tried them.

We wish you a very successful new year!
Keyboard shortcuts and many more customization options
Bear CMS's blog
Shortly before the holidays and shortly before we send our wishes to you, we would like to show you the latest updates in Bear CMS.

Now you can work even faster and achieve even better results.

Keyboard shortcuts

If you manage your website on a computer, the following keyboard shortcuts will certainly come in handy.

Shift + Q - Opens the main menu

Shift + E - Enable/Disable content editing
Shift + 1 - Original screen size
Shift + 2 - Phone screen size
Shift + 3 - Tablet screen size
Shift + 4 - Laptop screen size
Shift + 5 - Decrease screen size
Shift + 6 - Increase screen size

Shift + A - Opens the Create element menu. Hold Ctrl and click on the selected element type to automatically add it last on the page.

Ctrl + click on an item - Opens the edit window for the item
Ctrl + Shift + click on an item - Opens the item's style settings

When in the theme customizer:
Ctrl + Shift + click on an item - Opens the options of the selected item

Custom style settings for more elements

As of today, the Image gallery, Separator, HTML Code, Navigation, Blog posts, Comments, Search box and Share button all have the ability to individually customize.

Container settings for all elements

In every element's style settings, you'll find a new group of options that apply to the container that the element itself resides in. This gives even more possibilities for personalization.

Infinite loop in the slider

We recently introduced the new Slider element. From today, when opening the last slide, you can now give the option to continue "forward" to the first. This creates an infinite loop effect. Only works when there are more than 3 slides. You can find this option in the settings of the slider itself.

With these final improvements for the year, we hope to contribute at least a little to your holiday cheer.

Merry Christmas!
Happy and successful New Year!
