We have made some significant updates to our Gambit and Palm Beach theme as well as their Pro Version add-on plugins. We recommend to carefully check your website after installing the update, since you might have to adjust custom modifications you have made. This concerns custom CSS changes as well as child themes.
Today I’d like to share our long-term plans for ending updates and support for our older themes. On 31th Dec 2022 we will send some of the themes released between 2014 and 2016 into their well-deserved retirement.
We end a difficult year for all of us with the release of our newest Blogging & Magazine WordPress Theme. Originally the theme should be named after the Greek god Kairos, the personification of opportunity, luck and favorable moments. Since the name was already taken by another theme, it now bears the name of the Roman equivalent Occasio. So Poseidon and Chronus will not get company.
Our latest Themes and Pro Add-ons now support Google AMP and are compatible with the official AMP WordPress plugin. AMP (Accelerated Mobile Pages) is an open source framework from Google to accelerate the mobile web and improve loading times. For this purpose the code is compressed and a slimmed down and faster version of the website is provided.
The corresponding updates will be available soon in your WordPress backend.
A frequently requested feature for our Magazine blocks was the ability to select posts from several categories. With the new version 1.1 the category select field is now replaced by a multi-checkbox option for categories. If no category is explicitly selected, the latest posts of all categories are displayed.
