  1. I can’t find a thread for todays update, but it appears to have made my slider stop working. I know this may be a conflicting plug in issue, but all was fine before the latest update so I now have a white space with a spinning wheel of doom 🙁

  2. I just updated to 2.0.3 and it blew up my slider on my front page? What’s up with that? Also what happened to the semi-transparent upwards rolling effect on the column images? Will it be coming back, or am I stuck with the sideways slide-in on an opaque background now?

  3. You have some strange and faulty CSS going on in your site, overriding the theme’s text size and line height. This may have worked, by pure coincidence, with the old versions of Parabola. They’re probably added by a plugin and it has an id of ‘tt-easy-google-font-styles’ . Remove that plugin/styling and you should be fine.

  4. I’ve used Parabola for quite some time, but today I updated to 2.0.3 (from the old1.x.x) and now several font-related issues have popped up, including too-close of line spacing. Changing to a theme-default font then makes a PDF plug-in disappear. I like the look of Parabola, so I’m hoping there is a way to fix these problems.
