We’ve just released Pragma 1.5.0! As some of our members pointed out, there were a few bugs that needed to be sorted out. Since we had to prepare the theme for an update, we went and made some extra changes to improve on the theme. This update is primarily aimed at those who are currently using Pragma in their WordPress site, since there are a few things you need to know before updating. We’ve made the following chnages:

  • The background texture and settings from the Theme Options have been removed. In exchange, we’ve added compatibility with the native Background setting in WordPress, which will make the theme more standarized and future-proof. This means your background settings may need to be reconfigured if you have chosen to use the theme in boxed mode.
  • We have standarized the Theme Options to make them more inline with the new themes we’re rolling out. Sadly, this means you will have to go through the Theme Options and reconfigure them, as the option names have changed to reflect the new IDs used by our themes. One simple way to do that is to keep a browser tab open before updating, and copying all the options from there after the update process.
  • We have added the latest version of the CPO Core. This means things like shortcodes have been removed, so you’ll need to install the CPO Shortcodes plugin from the official repository.
  • On the plus side, you now have a few more fonts to choose from in the Theme Options, including Light variations of Open Sans or Roboto.
  • You can now use HTML and shortcodes on the homepage portfolio description! Also, to make it more flexible, we have removed the static Portfolio title. This way you can add anything you want in there.
  • Some tweaks have been made to the CSS in order to make use of the core classes provided by our framework. This way, it will be more in line with other, more modern themes.
