ClassiPress Version 3.5.1

On September 1st, 2015, ClassiPress 3.5.1 was released. This is a major release with significant changes, performance improvements, and bug fixes.

If you’re using a child theme purchased from our Marketplace, we strongly recommend you contact the seller to make sure it’s been updated to work with versions 3.5.x before upgrading your website.

It you’re using your own customized child theme you’ll need to update your template files to mirror the new changes in 3.5.x. A breakdown of tickets can be found below.

More Modern

This major release bring a much needed design overhaul throughout the whole theme. On the backend we’ve re-organized the settings in a more logic way,  added richer descriptions, new tooltips and replaced all icon sprites with font icons. We’ve also made all the table listings responsive, so that most of columns are hidden on small screens, mirroring the default WP behavior.

We’ve moved all ClassiPress appearance settings to the WordPress Customizer and added new color options to allow easy tweaking of the theme, with live preview. It’s now easier to have a unique theme customized by yourself.

On the front end we’ve made ClassiPress look more modern by switching to a flatter and cleaner design. All images were also replaced with font icons and all javascript files are now minimized. These changes don’t only make ClassiPress look better, but they should also help your site load a little faster.

Besides the visual changes, there’s now an ‘Orders’ page on the users dashboard where they can monitor all their spendings.

There are many other changes so we suggest you go through the changelog to check them all. Again, please remember, before upgrading, make sure your child theme is ready for 3.5.x!

Upgrade Information

Now you can automatically upgrade directly from your WordPress admin. Under “Appearance” => “Themes”, you’ll see an upgrade link next to ClassiPress. If you don’t, check back later. The AppThemes upgrade check API runs twice a day. It’s important to note that using this auto updater will overwrite any custom coding done to the theme. Customers who have made theme code changes will need to manually upgrade instead.

If you prefer the old fashion way or have made core theme modifications (which is not recommended), visit AppThemes to download the full version.
