New Mobile Menu for Resurrect Theme

Resurrect New Mobile Menu

Every church needs a mobile-friendly website. That means having a responsive design and a menu that is easy to use on phones.

Our Resurrect WordPress theme was launched with a very simplistic mobile menu that has been replaced with a new, more modern mobile menu which you can see in the photo above. We released Resurrect version 1.8 yesterday to make this improvement available to you.

Custom Recurring Events 1.0

Custom Recurring Events Add-on

We’re excited to announce that the Custom Recurring Events plugin is now available. This is our first add-on for the Church Theme Content plugin.

What exists right now without this add-on are basic recurrence options for weekly, monthly and yearly. We’ve had many requests for “every X weeks” (bi-weekly, in particular) and the ability to make events recur on a particular week of the month, like “every second Wednesday”. The purpose of this add-on is to meet needs like these in order to save you time (ie. not having to manually move dates forward).

Church Theme Content 1.2 – Event Time Fields

Version 1.2 of the Church Theme Content plugin has been released. It adds new time fields for both users and theme developers. These features improve the order in which same-day events are shown. The plugin has also been made ready for add-ons (we’ll be releasing the first add-on shortly). This information is intended for both regular users and theme developers.

Theme Updates: Exodus 1.3 and Resurrect 1.6

We’ve released updated versions of our Exodus (1.3) and Resurrect (1.6) WordPress themes. These updates address minor issues and prepare the themes to take advantage of new features in the next version of the Church Theme Content plugin, which we plan to release this month along with the Custom Recurring Events add-on.

You can update by going to Dashboard > Updates in your WordPress admin area. You will need to have an active license key for the updates to show.

Theme Updates for WordPress 4.1

WordPress 4.1 was released today and all of our themes have been updated for compatibility.

The new version of WordPress adds several features including distraction-free writing, plugin recommendations and an easier way of choosing a non-English language. Some of the inner workings of the Customizer were improved as well. Our themes take full advantage of this feature and require an update to keep things working smoothly.

We recommend all users update to the latest version of Exodus or Resurrect and WordPress 4.1.

A Round of Theme Updates

Note: Additional updates were made on October 9 to address a bug some users were experiencing with the Customizer. Read changelogs for details.

Both our Exodus and Resurrect WordPress themes have been updated.

Resurrect now has a German translation thanks to Dirk Hoffmann and Urban Life Church. Both themes received minor improvements and fixes. Refer to the changelog for your theme for full details.

Jetpack Publicize Support Added

Jetpack Publicize

The Jetpack plugin has a module called Publicize. It automatically shares your new posts on social media when you publish them.

It works for blog posts out of the box but not for custom post types. Custom post types must specifically support Jetpack Publicize. Version 1.1 of our Church Theme Content plugin adds this support. Now you can automatically share new sermons and events on Facebook and Twitter.
