Important Notice for current customers.

Dear all, we are sorry if our latest update took so long and some get really mad about it. We are really sorry about it! We supposed to release this version months ago, however absence of my colleague to do the rest of the work postponed it to a very distant date. We were preparing to introduce a new Lucidpress to you guys in order to keep up with the latest trends and technologies that we have included into the theme. We have removed some features and replaced them with the best available. We have removed the old fashioned shortcode generator and replaced it with awesome visual composer. There are many more to mention but in the tight time we can only explain things that you should first take note before updating.

- Old column short codes are still in use in theme and if you do not use page composer you can still use them as before. but if you are going to take advantage of Page Composer you must create the layout using Page Composer and using the visual modules drag and drop short codes into VC columns.

- There are some short codes properties must be replaced with a new name to prevent conflicts. Image Shortcode (width replaced with image_width), divider (width replaced with divider_width). Again these values will work if you don’t want to use page composer.

- Blog Page removed and you will only need to create a blog page using shortcode. So you can have unlimited blog page without limitation with having each loop different style and options. so the corresponding options for blog is removed from Masterkey settings

- Homepage top & Bottom options is removed and you just need to add one single page and add your shortcodes into it and then set it as home page as explained in Documentation : http://artbees.net/themes/lucidpress-demo/docs/#SetupHomepage

- Homepage Carousel feature for homepage converted to a shortcode and you can just drag and drop into the homepage and set its parent row fullwidth option as enabled. So you can have it in any page with any settings. its options also has been removed from Masterkey settings.

- Cufon font library completely has been removed. please use Google Font instead.

- LayerSldier is removed from theme folder and you should be installing it the same as other plugins, on how to install and its usage can be found in Documentation. Its included in theme main folder. Please note that we have shipped the latest version of LayerSlider and its UI is little bit different.

- Built-in Textures has been removed from predefined patterns and textures and if you were using them in theme before this update you just need to find the textures.zip folder and upload the images to your server and use them as a custom background image. We have done all these to reduce theme zipped folder size from 18MB to 2.7MB

- Fontface folder is removed from theme folder and if you need to use them, you will just need to unzip and drop it into theme then zip and upload into server. options will be working automatically.

- Anything Slider is deprecated and we will be removing it in our next version, try to use our new swipe enabled EdgeSlider or LayerSlider. We do this to keep up with new technologies and scripts that works fine in all browsers.

If you guys have any questions or issues I will try my best to fix all your issues in time to prevent your migration to be painful.
