Vantage Version 3.0

On May 13th 2015, Vantage 3.0 was released. This is a general maintenance and security release that addresses a few bug fixes along with an overhaul of the admin settings pages.

We jumped versions from 1.4.1 to 3.0 to avoid an unexpected theme switch on updates. Another theme provider decided to name their theme “Vantage” as well which caused this issue. Upgrading is highly recommended.

Upgrade Information

Use the AppThemes Updater Plugin to automatically update the theme, or login to your account and manually download the updated version the old fashioned way (less recommended).

  • Email not sent when upgrading
  • Sub categories style in refine search
