We are pleased again to announce the release of our latest version, 4.1.2. This version has addressed some issues discovered in the early version 4.1.1 and it is our hope that this will be the last partial update prior to releasing the next featured update to include our Responsive design.
It’s long overdue but it’s now available! You can download version 4.1 from Theme Forest by logging into your purchasing account and clicking “Downloads”. Find the “KingSize WordPress Theme” and click the “Download” button and download the “Main Files”.
We’re often asked, “What is the difference between a ‘Page Template’ and a ‘Shortcode’ Gallery?” and we’ll explain.
Creating a Gallery via “Page Templates” is how our template originally handled Galleries but later in the release of version 4.0+ we introduced the new post-type called “Galleries” where you can now create Galleries and use a shortcode to call them. The method of using a shortcode is a bit more versatile than using a page template, but both are available for your use.
Let’s review how you’d create a gallery using the Gallery Shortcode. In earlier versions (and the current documentation for version 4.0.3) it’s a little different than it is now for WordPress 3.5. The user-interface has changed a little as noted in our previous post, “WordPress 3.5 – How it affects KingSize WP“. So let’s get started.
On December 11th, 2012, WordPress released Version 3.5 named for the jazz drummer “Elvin Jones”. With the release of this new version, there have been some changes to the “User Interface” which many of us were not overly thrilled about as we were accustomed to the old ways. Yet with improvements, always must come change. So there are some updates we’d like to take a few minutes of your time and explain a little about as they do affect our current version of KingSize WordPress v4+. First and foremost, our template is fully compatible with the latest version of WordPress …
As always, we thank you for your patience while we addressed all the discovered issues/bugs. We believe we’ve addressed them all and are in hopes this will be the last bug fix released until we’ve released version 4.1 which will include many of the new features requested in recent weeks. So with that said, let’s take a few minutes to review the many changes and fixes released in version 4.0.3.
We realize it’s only be a week since rolling out Version 4.0 and this update now makes two since, but as said before, when rolling out an update as large as we have, bugs are to be expected. In version 4.0.1, we addressed some of the major ones and released an update immediately. In this latest version of 4.0.2, we have corrected all the additional bugs/issues mentioned since.
We want to first thank you all for your patience while we corrected these and more importantly, thank you for your help in identifying the issues. We’re very sorry about the mishaps but as we’ve mentioned before, in an update as large as this one, it was bound to happen but we’ll get everyone sorted out and we’re constantly looking to continuously update KingSize more regularly. So now that it’s been said, let’s discuss version 4.0.1!
