How to Use Changelog Widget

Log refers to a record of events. A changelog will allow you to keep your record. Every time a developer should change the log/ record of their works. See, if you as a developer need to show what works you’ve done newly, what features you’ve added to your previous work or what change you’ve brought in your works, then Changelog is here to help you to keep the log or record.

The guideline below about the widget I’m talking about will get you to walk in the right way to have the changelog. 

If you want to show your log in a stylish way, you can do that using our Changelog widget.

Content

After dragging and dropping the widget, you’ll find nothing at first. Don’t worry. Just you have to follow a simple trick. You need to make a changelog file with a .txt / .md extension following the Markdown editor format. Only the markdown coding format can permit you to get the design you find in our Element Pack Pro demo.

See the coding format above and you’ve to follow that.

Most importantly, you have to create a link with a changelog file (such as changelog.txt/ changelog.md) combining with your IP address.

Then, you simply need to paste the URL in the Changelog File under the Content tab as you see the screenshot.

One more thing, using our this widget you’ll only get the design in terms of Added, Removed, Updated, Changed, Fixed, Language, and Note. In the time to come, we’ll bring more features, then you’ll be able to add more like that.

If you want to do cache your file for a certain period, you can do that just by the control Cache the File.



Style Tab

Using the sections under the style tab, you’ll be able to design a changelog easily.

Changelog

In this section, you’ll be able to style the title and text with typography and spacing to list spacing.

Just go to Changelog > Title and Text


Added, Fixed, Updated, Note, Removed, Language, Changed

In every section written in the title, you will be able to add text and background-color, then border type and border-radius and typography also.

Simply go to Added > color > Background > Border Type > Border Radius > Typography.

As the Added section, you can style the other sections mentioned in the title.

You can also test with this txt file so you can easily get the right format.
