Updating to 2.0
Although we always work with backwards compatibility in mind, 2.0 marks a big milestone and comes with major changes to the way we handle archive pages with the theme. It’s important to review these items after you’ve updated to Page Builder Framework 2.0:
- Blog / Archive Pages – The way we handle Archives with Page Builder Framework has been rewritten from ground up so make sure to have a look at your Blog & Archive pages. Tweak the settings under Blog in the WordPress Customizer if needed. To enable additional layout settings for other archive types (such as Search Results, Categories, Custom Post Type Archives etc.) go to Appearance -> Theme Settings -> Blog Layouts (Premium).
- Clear the Cache – If you’re using a caching plugin or server side caching, please clear your cache after you’ve updated to Page Builder Framework 2.0.
- Page Templates – The No Header, No Header/Footer & Transparent Header (Premium) Page Templates have been removed. Please use the settings in the Template Settings metabox on the right hand side instead.
- Update Premium Add-On – With 2.0, lot’s of things have been reorganized and a couple settings moved from the Premium Add-On to Page Builder Framework. It’s important to keep both, Page Builder Framework and the Premium Add-On up to date. If your license has expired, this is a good time to renew your license.
If you run into issues or have any further questions, don’t hesitate to get in touch. We’re always happy to help!
While it was a lot of work to launch PBF 2.0, we are excited with the foundation moving forward. There is a lot more to come and this is a huge step in the right direction! 🙂
