Version 2.0 – 27.05.2019

Melissa 2.0 is now available! This is a big theme update that primarily relates to the new requirements for all WordPress themes on the market. Link: https://help.author.envato.com/hc/en-us/articles/360000472383-WordPress-Theme-Submission-Requirements

Please read the changes before updating the theme.

1. Changes related to new requirements:

2. All other changes:

  • Updated: Documentation.
  • Updated: Bootstrap v3.4.1.
  • Updated: Superfish v1.7.10.
  • The rel=”noopener” attribute has been added to all links that have the target=”_blank” attribute.
  • Added permission to use the “rel” attribute in links.
  • The show-hide-meta-boxes.js file has been moved from the “assets” folder to the “js” folder.
  • Additional classes for posts are added through the “post_class” filter: add_filter( ‘post_class’, ‘melissa_custom_post_classes’, 10, 3 ).
  • Changed some phrases for settings.
  • Removed the following settings:
    • Appearance > Customize > Custom CSS. This setting was outdated. Now WordPress has its own section in the customizer for Additional CSS code;
    • All volume settings for background videos. The reason is very simple – this is a new autoplay policy for browsers. Main change: Video can play automatically, but only if it’s silent. In this theme, the background video for the header starts to play automatically, and according to the new policy, browsers block any sound from this video. For this reason, all volume settings have stopped working, and they have been removed from the theme.
  • Changed default values for the following options:
    • Appearance > Customize > Font Size & Style > Blog Post > Blog Post: Metadata Font Style > Bold;
    • Appearance > Customize > Font Size & Style > Sidebar & Widgets > Widget: Metadata Font Style > Bold.
  • Google+ buttons have been removed from the theme.
  • Styles for the classic editor have been rewritten.
  • Some theme styles have been changed.
  • Some responsive styles have been changed.
  • Fixed several minor issues.

Changed files:

  • All theme files.
