Our Anima WordPress theme has been available to download and install freely from our site for about two months, but, as promised, it has now become available to auto install from WordPress.org (or your WordPress dashboard).
Our latest theme, Septera, is finally LIVE on WordPress.org and ready for you to one-click install it and take it for a spin.
Septera is still free, it’s still awesome and it’s still brimming with personality but during the review process a few things have changed. Find out what.
Verbosa theme is now LIVE on WordPress.org, ready to download, install, review, preview and pretty much anything else you can think of.
Everything you need to know about the theme is now available in the changelogs.
Our site has received a major overhaul. It has a brand new look, a new static front page, new theme pages and a lot more.
Everything is a lot more user friendly and things like support and theme information are a lot easier to find. Check it out if you haven’t already.
Updates celebrate milestones; updates bring fixes and improvements; updates build and expand upon collected knowledge. But sometimes updates can also bring hurtful changes.
Mantra 2.5.0 is in a happy/sad mood – celebrating almost 5 years of existence but losing part of itself at the same time.
Just like with her sisters we have set up an alternative solution. As we previously announced, we decided to retain the settings page functionality and move it to a separate plugin.
For accessibility reasons, Wordpress 4.4 changes the HTML markup of the settings sections in an way that’s incompatible with our theme settings pages. As a result, our themes will fail to display the settings sections once you update to 4.4.
To solve this…
As you might know by now, themes in the official repository are no longer allowed to implement a theme options page. All new themes were required since early this year to implement support for the Customizer and some weeks ago this rule became mandatory for themes already published in the repository as well.
We’ve given this a great deal of thought and we decided not to transfer theme options to the Customizer interface. We built our themes settings to fit and work in a certain way and we feel the Customizer structure just isn’t right for them.
To be able to continue providing theme updates…
So Mantra 2.4.1 saw the light of day a couple of days ago and brought with it a couple of fixes, support for WordPress 4.1+ ‘title-tag’ and the addition of our social media links to the theme’s admin page.
However this release includes a small glitch concerning child themes so you may want to postpone the update until 188.8.131.52 becomes live.
