Theme Updates for Improved Block Editor Experience

Very recently we released updates to make our themes ready for WordPress 5.0‘s Gutenberg block editor. WordPress has released two updates to improve the block editing experience since that time. We have also been working to polish support in our themes for blocks in the new editor. Mainly this has meant adding additional styling for blocks in consideration of their various options.

A Note on Gutenberg Support

Gutenberg Callout

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.

Theme Updates for WordPress 4.9 Compatibility

WordPress 4.9

WordPress 4.9 has been released. We tested all of our themes and plugins with it before its public release and identified a couple of issues that needed to be addressed. As such, we released updates for all of our themes to keep things running smoothly on your church’s website. The Church Content plugin does not need an update as it is already compatible with WordPress 4.9.
