Just over two years ago, I created a site called Shaped Pixels where I designed and released various styles of WordPress themes—both free and premium versions alike. I can easily say that it’s been interesting and rewarding to continue being part of the WordPress community as the overall market is continuously progressing to better things. I know this because 26% of the internet uses WordPress!
You might have noticed that the Shaped Pixels website looks a little different…OK, a lot different! Not only did I change the site visually, I also did something I never thought I would do which was to change from using the Joomla content management system (CMS) to WordPress! I am guessing most didn’t know I was running my site on Joomla, but that is a story for another time.
Receptive was just updated to fix a few issues that were found in the theme where the decision to add more colour settings to better customize the front page template sections that contains a button. For example, the blog section and icon boxes. I also updated the font awesome icons.
Opportune Pro was just updated to fix a few issues that were found in the theme where the banner background colour setting was incorrectly coded and therefore not working. I also added colour settings for headings such as h1, h2, h3, etc.
Something new is coming to WordPress 4.7 that is due to be released in just over a month from the writing of this article. It’s something that is making many people shrug with puzzlement and a question of…why are they doing this? Trust me, it even makes me wonder what is wrong with the priorities of the core WordPress development team. Sure there’s going to be several new things in 4.7, but why this…
Longevity Pro is now updated to version 1.4.7 which adds two new blog layouts from requests made my several users over time. With the recent request, I decided to add two new blog layouts which gives you a left and a right sidebar column. In addition to this, I’ve also made a few adjustments to the top sidebar area and a few other elements in this theme.
This is a major update to Morphology that is based on several requests about adding WooCommerce. By default, WooCommerce support is disabled in the customizer under the Site Options tab, but for anyone wanting to setup shop with this theme, you can now enjoy full support for WooCommerce. I have made some other theme adjustments and fixed a couple bugs as well.
For anyone using Emotions, I’ve made a couple updates that includes fixing the styling for alignments. You may have noticed that when aligning an image to the left or right of your content does not work. The floating and margins were fixed and adjusted for this theme, including the styling for the content editor. I also updated the WooCommerce templates that are included in this theme.
Due to some requests, I have made some adjustments to the layout of Morphology changing to the mobile layout too soon. I’ve modified the responsive breakpoints to that on smaller screens like laptops, your page layout with the left side column won’t switch to the top on these kinds of screens. I also changed the left side column from using pixels in width to percent.
This is a major update for the Morphology premium theme which is now version 1.1.1. The biggest change is the addition of typography settings, and then fixing a few other small bugs, plus existing feature enhancements that were added. I’ve made significant changes to option settings that might affect your site, so be careful and read the Change Log below before doing anything.
