Themify v7 – Final Beta

Themify v7 – Final Beta

Since the release of Themify v7 Beta, many users asked about the official v7 release. Today we have good news, the v7 is close to final. We are just finishing off the minor issues and doing final testing on our demos. Having said that, we have the final v7 beta version available. We would like to invite you to test out the final beta and let us know if you spot any issues. If everything goes well, the final v7 should be released in 2 weeks.

Download v7 Beta and Install

  • Download themify-beta.zip (don't extract the zip file). NOTE: If you previously have Themify Beta theme installed, you can use the Themify Updater to update it to latest version without having to reinstall it.
  • With any of your test/dev WordPress sites (please don't install Beta version on live sites): go to Appearance > Themes, click "Add New" > click "Upload Theme", then upload the themify-beta.zip and activate the theme. If you already have Themify Beta installed previously, you can use Themify Updater plugin to auto update (you should see the update notification on the admin area if you have Themify Updater activated).
  • NOTE: The Beta version doesn't work with the current Builder addons and Builder Pro. Please deactivate them prior to testing the Beta version.

Themify v7 Beta Release

Themify v7 Beta Release

We might seem quiet lately, but we are actually working very hard on a major framework update. It is so BIG that we had to skip a version. We've jumped from version 5 to 7. The reason we skipped a version is because we don't recommend downgrading your Themify themes after upgrading to v7. For this reason, we are releasing a beta version so you can try it before updating your themes.

The last v5 update focused on the frontend performance and we are happy to see many of our users' sites getting A+ score on Google Pagespeed Insights. In this v7 update, we re-coded a lot of components in the backend to optimize the framework and Builder's performance. Another significant change in v7 is the Builder row grid. We've changed the Builder row to use CSS grid in replacement of flexbox in the old version. Using the CSS grid gives more layout possibilities such as adding unlimited columns, column reordering, and creating tiled grids.

The Beta theme is based on Ultra using the latest v7 framework. Please help us test it on your staging/development sites (do not use it on any live site). As a friendly reminder, the Beta theme doesn't work with any of the current Builder addons and Builder Pro yet (please disable them prior to your test). Have fun with the beta version and let us know what you find.

New Feature: Ajax Post Filter

New Feature: Ajax Post Filter

We are excited to announce another highly demanded feature, the Ajax post filter. We've extended our existing post filter feature with Ajax capability. The old post filter we had was only able to filter the posts already queried on the page. With the new Ajax feature, users can filter and query posts on the whole site (including the posts that are not queried on the page). The new Ajax post filter is perfect for sites with a lot of posts/products. It allows users to select categories from the post filter navigation and then click on the "Load More" button to load more posts infinitely until there is no more post. To see this in action, view our Post Filter and WooCommerce product filter demo.
