Version 2.1 of our Church Content plugin has been released. The main purpose of this update is to provide a tool to assist users of our discontinued Risen theme migrate to one of our newer, more modern themes. This update contains a couple bug fixes as well. As usual, all users should update (even if not migrating from Risen).
Updates have been made to most of our themes and plugins to address minor issues discovered after our recent major releases (see Church Content Pro Released, New Packages Available). All in all, the major releases went really smooth. These updates will polish things off. Please refer to the changelogs linked below for what has been fixed.
Want to make your work easier and attract more visitors to your website? If so then you may be interested in Church Content Pro. We’ve published a series of screenshots on Facebook to give you a preview.
Update: Our themes and plugins are now compatible with WordPress 5.0 and the new Gutenberg editor.
Gutenberg is the new “page building” editor that will be included with WordPress 5.0 a few months from now. WordPress 4.9.8 was recently released. It asks you if you want to test the beta version of Gutenberg or if you want to stick with the “Classic” editor (what we all use now). We’re wrapping up Gutenberg support for our themes and intend to have the updates available by the time WordPress 5.0 is released. Until then, we recommend using the classic editor for your live site.
WP Tavern is reporting that beginning July 24 with the release of Chrome 68, Google will begin warning users on websites loaded over http. The address bar will show a “Not Secure” warning. Since this will be a traffic and trust killer for any website still using http instead of https, we want to make sure all churches using our WordPress themes are prepared for this.
The first interaction many prospective visitors will have with your church will be in a Google search result. In this article we will walk through the process of claiming and optimizing your Google My Business listing. Every church should take the time to do this. It’s free and will make your church more visible on Google.
When we launched almost five years ago, we were one of the first theme shops to embrace a sustainable business model by charging a yearly renewal fee for ongoing updates and support. At that time, we decided to offer a very aggressive renewal discount of 50% which has remained in place until today. Theme and plugin development has become more involved over the years and, as such, we feel that a renewal discount this deep is no longer sustainable.
