We’ve experimented quite a bit and implemented all the advancements and improvements in our newer customizer-based themes, leaving Fluida slightly behind and functioning a bit differently.
The 1.5.0 update is here to bring everything in line with all the other themes, making features and options behaviour and documentation uniform across all themes and easing the maintenance task for us. This means that updating your existing site to 1.5.0 can change some things…
You might have noticed a slow down in our Fluida updates release cycle in last months. You might have also noticed that we took a bit longer than usual to fix some small issues that were quite annoying for some. You needn’t start worry, we haven’t given up, we haven’t forgotten Fluida, no need to pack your bags and move to a different theme just yet.
The reason for the delays is actually a very simple one: for the last few months we’ve been drinking our coffee in big secret and been covertly working on an even greater and better Fluida. And what best time to reveal our secret project than on Fluida’s second birthday!
Today we’re happy to indulge everyone with a sneak preview to Fluida’s evil bigger twin sister – introducing Fluida Plus theme for WordPress!
It was two years ago that a deal with the dark overlord forces had to be made and out of that wedlock Fluida theme was born. Sacrifices had to be made, blood was shed, features slashed, options rearranged, buckets of code rewritten, but in the end we feel that we have created something great.
Today Fluida reaches the ripe age of 2. Two years of learning and discovering, of showing her many features to the world and of becoming a better theme. And she took her role of bigger sister serious and made the time to nurture and educate her younger siblings.
We’ve created our Serious Slider plugin as a companion for our new generation of themes to offer them slider functionality. Since then our slider plugin has grown and is now ready to take the world (of sliders) head on.
Version 1.0 brings a collection of changes intended to make Serious Slider a full-fledged WordPress slider plugin, capable to rival even the most advanced free slider plugins out there while maintaining its efficient and lightweight construction.
