Auto Upgrading: Coming Soon

In our first framework update we added support for image handling, fixed folder and file structures, and cleaned up some of our code. We did a silent update to the framework, 1.0.2, and we'd like to share what was added and what's coming up in the future.


We silently released an upgrade to the framework about a week ago that included some cool features:

  • Shortcodes

    We introduced WordPress shortcodes into our latest theme Bizco and wanted to include this functionality to all our themes by packing it into the core.

  • Open JS

    We had been minifying the frameworks core Javascript file for speed and to hide a bit of it's awesome functionality. We wanted to open this up to our users and now provide an "un-minified" version of this file.

  • New Helper Functions

    themify_get and themify_check are two new helper functions introduced in 1.0.2. Each has it's own purpose to help you get or check variables from either custom fields or the Themify frameworks stored settings.


The next version of the framework, 1.0.3, will include a few new features including a much needed "Auto Upgrade" function.

  • Auto Upgrading

    To make everyone's life easier, we're adding automatic theme and framework version checks that will prompt you to upgrade if you are running an older version of either. This will hopefully mitigate any future issues and help to keep everyone up-to-date with the latest and greatest.

If you'd like to be a beta tester for version 1.0.3 of the framework just post below and we'll get in contact with you.

    I would like to be a beta tester for Themify.
    I would love to properly start using your Themify themes on my clients websites, but I think I signed-up too early with my ‘All Packages’ subscription and found it quicker to use other themes at the time.
