It’s a time for joy and celebration, not just because a new Mantra update is here to correct and improve some long outstanding issues but also because this month, 4 years ago, our little Mantra opened its digital eyes and met with the WordPress repository for the very first time. And boy what I ride it has been since…
Mantra is now 4 years old and although her little sisters are starting to surpass her, she’s still older, wiser and still has a few issues up her sleeves.
One of the most important changes in this update is the removal of shortcodes. Per the WordPress Theme Guidelines concerning plugin territory, this change has long been coming.
To keep the [mantra] or [cryout] shortcodes working on your site, we’ve moved this functionality to a separate plugin which can be downloaded from here.
For all other changes, see the changelog:
