Theme updates are necessary for PWP to maintain integrity for PHP compatibility, WordPress code best-practices, and to keep up-to-speed on new WordPress features.
PWP periodically audits themes and plugins for long-term maintainability.
How will this affect my website?
Ideally, these theme updates should not affect PWP websites. However, we have seen indications that some theme updates are major updates – functionality and customizations are removed and/or added.
In one example, color customizations was reduced from three opens to one, limiting the flexibility and customization options for the theme.
If you are using any of these themes on a PWP website, please ensure you check your website(s) after theme updates for any major visual or aesthetic changes.
