MeanThemes Tools 3.0.0
We’ve just released a major update for MeanThemes Tools, version 3.0.0. If you are upgrading and you use the following themes, please make sure read on, if you’re unfamiliar with updating plugins, scroll down to the “Updating…” section below.
For the majority of our themes you won’t notice any difference, if you are using Color, Fitly or Youthy you will need to upgrade your theme to the latest version in tandem with updating the MeanThemes Tools plugin. If you do not update both to the latest version, you will lose the ability to edit some parts of your website.
- Color: 1.1.1
- Fitly: 1.0.8
- Youthy: 1.0.9
Upload these to your WordPress install.
Then Update the MeanThemes Tools plugin and you’ll be all set.
Behind the scenes of MeanThemes Tools 3.0.0
We’ve marked this release as a major release as we’ve removed the custom meta framework we used to use (CMB). This framework ceased development and whilst it was still stable, we wanted to bring the latest functionality and layouts to our MeanThemes customers. We’ve upgraded the framework to use the new CMB2.
Under the hood, the code for CMB2 is a lot smarter and extensible, from a user point of view it basically looks a lot nicer.
You’ll also get the latest FontAwesome 4.5.0 icons in MeanThemes Tools 3.0.0 as well as a slightly updated MeanThemes Social Widget which now allows the Amazon and Mixcloud icons to use FontAwesome as well.
