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…
Our latest WordPress theme – Kahuna has been available on WordPress.org for quite some time now. We just got a little bit carried away and kind of forgot to make a post about it.
But anyway, this is the official announcement: “it’s alive!”
Did you know our veteran Mantra theme is almost 7 years old? Cause she is. And in many ways she sure looked her age. Mantra had very small font sizes, small to no padding and some pretty dated graphics. And if you peeked under the hood (naughty you!), you probably found tons of dusty code and messy styles, all glued together by curtains of sticky spider webs.
So you might ask yourself, how could we let our first WordPress theme fade away like that? Well, we couldn’t. So this holiday season we spent all our free time to bring Mantra up to date. And we really think you’re going to like what’s been done.
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.
