Bootville Theme 1.4 Update

Bootville 1.4 was released today that fixes an issue with a double tagline. Usually I’ll send an email to everyone that purchased the theme but I received an error when sending the emails and I’m still waiting to hear back from Easy Digital Downloads support.

To download the update simply log into the theme shop and click purchase history, there you’ll find a link to download the new version.

To install Bootville 1.4 the easiest way is to use FTP. If you don’t have FTP access simply set another theme such as Twenty Fifteen active, delete Bootville then upload an activate the new version. Your settings, menus and widgets will remain once you activate the new version.

The next version of Bootville will not include redux framework. To reduce file size and to ensure the newest version of Redux is being used I’ll be using TGM Plugin Activation which will prompt users to install Redux Framework plugin (free). There should not be any visible changes to theme options once it’s activated. This is how WordPress recommends including Plugins and Frameworks such as Redux now.

If you have any suggestions for new features or experience any issues with the new version feel free to contact me via Forums or using the contact link at the top of this site!
