Is this theme compatible with WooCommerce 3.4.3? In theme information you write: compatible with WooCommerce 3.1.x.

WooCommerce 3.1.x, is very outdated and unsecure! Do not use this theme with this WooCommerce Version! We are worried to do this woocommerce update to 3.4.3.

So if we do a update for wordpress and woocommerce to version 3.4.3 and have a technical or styling issue with your theme, we have to wait up to 5 days to get a the first feedback from you. And if your first feedback will not help, we wait again 5 days for next feedback…

With your working time we can not handle problems, questions, bugs in a manageable time. Please share a solution.

You don’t have to be worried about compatibilities between minor releases because they mostly fix bugs and improve performance, there’s no need for the theme to be updated on every others update. The theme is tested with all the latest versions of everything and unless we find a bug or any customer reports it (because NO ONE’s code is bugfree) we do not make an “empty update”.

It is just safe to keep your plugins updated and only have extra care when updating between major releases (for example from 3.x.x to 4.x.x).

Also making a backup before updating your stuff is a good practice (even better is to have a staging area) because the technical problems that a theme can cause are nothing compared to a corrupt wp core update or woocomerce in this case… problems can come from anywhere.

The blog is shown on frontpage. This is okay.

But we add the blog also to an extra menu “Blog”. See screenshot:

After this: 1. In Wordpress we select this page for blogpost and select checkbox for “show only short text”. See screenshot:

2. We are missing a template for a blog page in page settings. The wordpress core function will not work correct with your theme. Because this extra blog page show not correct the blog posts. The complete content of each blog post is shown. And it’s not possible to style the grid or list view. Only on the frontpage show the blog posts correct in list view. But also here not possible to change styling of list (for example from list view to grid mode).

Each blog page need a seperate blog menu, which all categories and blog posts are shown and in most of them user can select diffrent styles for grid and list.

How to add a extra blog page and style it like front page (without slideshow for sure).

Next question: Do you write us some months before you will add new functions to add extra content to startpage and to handle slidershow. Same for visual editor. Because a bloger is not a script kiddy which wanna work with shortcodes… We are still waiting for any update in this case.

Thank you.

Please download this file and place it in your child theme folder if you are using it, otherwise it is safe to put into your parent theme folder as this file will become part of the theme in the next update.

After that set your Settings -> Reading back to Set the page template on your desired Blog page.

Try it and let me know.

About the editor we are still working on the gutenberg integration. We will post the update as soon as we feel it’s stable enough to release, think that gutenberg is still in beta and many things can break from one day to another.
