Thanks to everyone who advised good ideas for this update! 😉 I also want to apologize that some of the settings that you wrote to me about were not included in this update. However, they are all saved in my journal. I can’t guarantee that all suggested settings and features will be added, but I always think about every suggested setting and feature 😉 Once again, thank you very much to all of you!

During testing, there were issues with the following new features:

  • Offset for posts in the slider;
  • Ability to hide the logo on single post pages and single pages.

For this reason, these features have not been included in this version. However, I will keep thinking about them.

Version 1.0.1 – 26.02.2022

Improvements and fixes:

  • Improved and fixed styles for the Block Editor (Fixed issues related to block editor changes in WordPress 5.9; Added styles for new blocks);
  • Fixed minor CSS issues (Comment form styles);
  • Improved and fixed styles for widget blocks.

Note: This update adds compatibility with WordPress 5.9.x. After the release of this update, I will start working on version 1.1. In this version (v1.1), I will add new features, settings and some fixes.

Thanks again for using this theme!
