Zombie Apocalypse requiem VII and update 2.1.0

It’s almost that time of the year again: the time of ghouls and goons, vampires and werewolves, zombies and ghosts, all roaming the streets and sites again.

All this evil and witchcraft always reminds us of our oldest and darkest theme of all – Zombie Apocalypse. We try not to give it much attention and not too often because evil should stay dead and buried, but it does make it back to haunt us every year or so.

  • Cleaned up “!important” usage in the style
  • Fixed theme’s general font overlapping WordPress admin bar icons
  • Updated theme tags
  • Updated and rearranged options panels in the customizer
  • Updated theme about page with current information, info and social links

Show your WordPress theme some love

Are you happy with the WordPress theme you’re using? Would you consider yourself and your theme as best buds? Or do you think of your theme as sexy?

Zombie Apocalypse requiem III and update 1.41

Three is a magic number. And everything comes in threes in this special edition post celebrating our first ever WordPress theme.

Zombie Apocalypse requiem II

Yap, it’s finally here – our Zombie Apocalypse’s second year anniversary. We love watching it grow up and bleed all over.

Many things have happened this past year: a lot of eaten corpses, roaming bodies and mindless cadavers.

Now that all important moment in time has come when summer has passed and autumn – the season of dying – is crawling towards our doors.
