WordPress 2.6 Theme Updates

Updated on

In case you missed it, WordPress 2.6 was released earlier today one month ahead of schedule. Unlike version 2.5, which was mainly geared at improving the user interface and media library, version 2.6 makes a few rather substantial updates to the behind the scenes stuff (code) that makes WordPress so good. Consequently, the functions.php file on F8, F8 Remixed, F8 Lite, F8 Static and Monochrome Pro needed a little sprucing up for WordPress 2.6. The theme update has already been sent out via email to everyone. If you did not receive the update, please get in touch. If you are using WordPress 2.5.1 and earlier, there is no need to upgrade.

All other themes from Graph Paper Press are compatible with WordPress 2.6.

  3. Does it affect Monochrome Gallery? It seems like the flash box is not working since I upgraded.

    Keep up the wonderful work.
