Mantra 3.0 mixes the old with the new

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.

Fluida Plus – even more than a premium theme

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!
