Thesis 1.6 Officially Released

in Thesis News

Thesis Theme 1.6 has officially been released and offers a bunch of new features that makes it easier that ever to customize your site. Let’s take a look at some of the new features in Thesis 1.6

  • Upgraded Navigation Menu – New more flexible class names have been added for the navigation menu elements and drop down menu capability has been added. (See the video at the end of this post to see exactly how to enable drop down menus in Thesis.) Two new menu hooks (before and after) have also been added to allow for the easy addition of elements before and after the navigation menu.
  • Multimedia Box font and color controls – You no longer have to create your own custom CSS classes for text displayed in the custom multimedia box, they’re built right in to the Thesis Design panel.
  • Custom Color Controls for all Content Areas – Now you can also set the font colors for every area of your Theme directly from the Design Panel without any custom.css coding.
  • Faster and more Efficient Image and Thumbnail Loading – Redundant code that slightly slowed the rendering of images and thumbnails has been fixed.
  • Bottom Line

    Thesis 1.6 is the most powerful version of Thesis yet and solves the typical problems (SEO, site speed, layout flexibility) that typical WordPress themes experience. If you’re not already running Thesis on your site, now is the time to make the switch and take your site to the next level.
