After a very long time – the last change was in 2016 – we are making some changes to our pricing model. The new prices are only valid for new customers. Existing customers with existing licenses are not affected and can continue to renew and use the old club memberships and bundles.
In this article I would like to briefly introduce the changes.
With version 5.8, WordPress Core has taken another step towards Full Site Editing and converted the previous widget areas into block areas. Under Appearance → Widgets and in the Customizer, a new block-based Widget Editor has been introduced for this purpose, with which blocks can now be inserted into any widget area.
For the new block-based widgets, we have also made some adjustments in our themes and Pro add-ons. These updates have been released the last few weeks.
With the last updates we have revised all icons in our themes and brought them to the latest version. The older the themes were, the more extensive the changes were. After installing the updates, caching and script minification plugins should be reset so that the icon styles are loaded correctly.
