It looks like Jetpack Mobile is completely ignored now, regardless whether Mantra is set to be responsive or not. it’s not a massive problem because Mantra seems pretty good in terms of responsiveness now, but I suspect some of our users will moan!

]]> <![CDATA[Line height very small after 3.x update]]> Wed, 14 Mar 2018 10:17:01 +0000 Rufus Just logging this even though I’ve worked around it in CSS. I’ve found that content line heights were very small after the update. If I leave Text Settings -> Line Height set to Default, it’s just a little too large for my liking so I have it set to 1.5em.
From my notes a while ago it looks like Line Height config setting seems to be completely ignored, but for line heights less than 2.0em for some weird reason. 2.0em and above and it’s honoured.

I’ve kludged it in CSS for now:

/* Increase body text line height – Mantra line height seems to be ignored unless 2em or greater for some reason */
#content {
line-height: 1.5em;

]]> <![CDATA[Reply To: headings too big with the new version]]> Wed, 14 Mar 2018 09:46:02 +0000 Rufus Yep, I’ve had this issue. I didn’t have examples of heading sizes before the upgrade so basically looked at the post title size I have set (which is an h2, and set to 24px in my case) and then looked at the headings I see in Visual mode in the TinyMCE editor relative to that 24px and took those, and added this to custom CSS. It’s a hack and I don’t like it but it looks better. Your preferred font sizes will differ to mine of course.
This is my workaround and I suspect Cryout’s will be better.

.entry-content h1 {
font-size: 32px;

.entry-content h2 {
font-size: 24px;

.entry-content h3 {
font-size: 18px;

.entry-content h4 {
font-size: 16px;

.entry-content h5 {
font-size: 13px;

.entry-content h6 {
font-size: 10px;

I’m not sure why but the one change I made was to put in a functions.php with the newly-recommended enqueueing style so perhaps this was it (I’m sure I tried that earlier but… ah well!).

Thanks for your help!

]]> <![CDATA[Can we go back to 2.6?]]> Fri, 09 Mar 2018 15:26:52 +0000 newy219 Has anybody been using the previous version? My site doesn’t work well with the new updates on mobile so I’m highly considering going back to 2.6. Just wondering if there would be any issues with doing this. Thoughts?

So it appears indeed that some changes to the theme through child themes files can cause this behaviour.

]]> <![CDATA[Reply To: Sidebars showing below content]]> Wed, 07 Mar 2018 11:56:49 +0000 Zed @heinenmja, are you using any kind of caching/speed-up (plugin or server-site)? The source code of your site seems to indicate that. Make sure to clear/reset any caching after the update.

A simple update from 2.6 to 3.0 will not break the layout of the site. It will at most change design details, like spaces/paddings, heights, font sizes.
