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.
After revising the typography options, we have now also tackled the color options and improved them fundamentally. Our newest themes have needed rather few adjustments here, so the biggest changes are mostly in our slightly older themes.
We have just rolled out another update for our whole theme and Pro add-on collection. The newest versions bring you revamped typography options with many smaller improvements and bug fixes.
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.
