Fusion Builder Receives
A Colossal Power-Up

How do we improve upon an already near perfect page builder? We work harder, we work smarter, and most of all, we listen.

Avada 5.6 and the new Fusion Builder updates bring with them an array of ground-breaking new features, improvements and a powerhouse of functionality. Harness it all in any way you like with our extensive customization options.

Fusion Builder

Right Click

In every app you use, right click menus save you time and have implicit uses that no other interaction on your page has, so we brought it to you in Fusion Builder (Free with every purchase of Avada!).

You can now harness the power of your right click, allowing you full control over editing your pages containers, columns and elements, without tracking the mouse or searching for your desired function.

Fusion Builder


Element Library Dashboard

Our Fusion Builder Element Library is already a showstopper, so we turned it into a revolutionary monster by adding a whole new dashboard to give you more control over your saved elements.

You can now, thanks to the Fusion Builder Element Library Dashboard, edit a single saved item outside of the pages you’re building, helping you feel and stay organised which will save you a wealth of time.

Rename your saved library elements on the fly without having to remove and re-save in the page builder.

Have you decided to make a change to your saved element and don’t want to re-save under a different name because it’s not consistent with your naming convention, or you just feel sloppy? No problem.

The new dashboard, that has been purpose built just for you, also features Asset Badges, which at a glance lets you know what your saved item is; A Column, Container, an Element or a template.

You can even manage your Global Elements from the Dashboard!

Fusion Builder

Unassign Global Elements

Global Saves are extremely useful for keeping sections of your pages consistent without having to manually edit each and every single part individually, but what if you no longer need a specific part of a page to be a part of the global save? With our new option to disable global save status, this is now possible.

We aim to give you more control, more flexibility and enable higher levels of creativity with each and every update and feature we release, this particular added feature is no different.

Avada Takes Privacy
Very Seriously

The update of Avada to version 5.5.2 included some amazing, unparalleled, market leading GDPR and Privacy Features that sets us atop the pile of our competitors. Why should Avada 5.6 be any different? It’s not, we’ve worked incredibly hard as always to bring you even more privacy features that are hard-baked into the Avada Theme Options Network to give you more power, flexibility, and control over your user’s privacy.



Privacy Banner

When we said we took Privacy seriously, we weren’t kidding. Now you can too, but with extremely little effort and maximum end results.

There are many Privacy Banner plug-ins for WordPress but never a singular integrated solution. Avada has taken this concept and baked the feature into our Theme Options Network to give you ultimate flexibility and control of your websites Privacy Banner. Customize its appearance in full, add and manage the embed consents, tracking codes and custom cookie content.

You can even set a cookie time out on the privacy banner. Furthermore, the settings made available to you in the Theme Options Network of Avada 5.6 give you the choice of just how much control your users can have. Ranging from basic control to in-depth consents and consent management for your users.

Enable / Disable Privacy Features

Customizable Styling

Add Custom Content



Tracking Code Consent

Now, within our Theme Options Network we allow the users to add tracking codes for an added layer of Consent.

What we’ve created to add a further layer of Privacy compliance, is tracked these codes and given you an additional content box to allow users to consent to these tracking tools explicitly. If your website uses Google Analytics, it will tell your users, and if they consent to it great, if not, then it will block the script until your users consent, or indefinitely.

We are extremely serious here at ThemeFusion about GDPR and your website users privacy, and it’s something now more than ever that’s at the forefront of everything we do. Rest assured that you, your website and your users are in safe hands with Avada.


Requested Features

With every single update we release, we try to accommodate specific user requests where we can. Given the scope of the work that goes into every teeny tiny, or huge update, sometimes this can be a challenge, however, we strive to give you what you want, when you need it. In Avada 5.6, we’ve included two brand new features at your specific request.

Mobile Menu Search

We have now built and enabled functionality for you to use the search function in all mobile menus across all headers. This was a popular user request, which we have now built, tested and made a reality. No longer do your websites have to sacrifice search in mobile menus.

SEO Friendly Content Box

For a while we have received requests to make heading tag size in content box element freely choosable. With Avada 5.6 this is now easily doable, allowing your websites content to be even more accessible to search engines.


Avada Saves You Time & Money

Alongside working diligently and obsessively to bring you the very best, most functional time saving features, we understand that in any aspect of work of play there is a financial implication which spurs us on to not only think outside the box but gives you peace of mind that with Avada your costs can be severely reduced on the whole.

Google Maps


Google Maps API Options

With the new updates to the Google Maps API and the change from Google offering this as a free service to a premium service, we’ve added a brand new API option that gives you the ability to load in and have as many Google Map impressions as you like for absolutely free. 

Note: This comes at a slight disadvantage as it reduces the amount of options you have for design and customization, however we know you’ll appreciate the savings to your wallet as much as the forward thinking we’ve adopted to bring you a powerful money saving feature.


CSS Loading
Performance Boosts

In every major release we do focus on another area to improve performance even more. This time we have revisited dynamically created CSS, and have come up with some nice performance boosts.



Asynchronous Media Query Loading

Avada can now load media query CSS files asynchronously. That makes sure, that only those style rules are loaded that are really needed on the device a visitor of your site uses. When you use this option, that can vastly improve performance, especially on mobiles.



Optimized CSS Caching

CSS caching is no longer page driven but content driven, which will create less dynamic CSS files in your upload folder and increases loading performance.
