WordPress 4.0 – Now Released

If you’re concerned about whether the latest version of WordPress will work with our WordPress Themes, I’m happy to announce that if you are running a latest update of our Aquila or Orion WP Framework themes, then you’ll be just fine.

Back a couple of months ago, WordPress released v3.9 — and when they did, it broke a lot of websites.  The most notable issue was that they upgraded the TinyMCE rich text editor to version 4 — the trouble with this was that many TinyMCE plugins are are not forward compatible (including the ones we were including in our themes).

So, a huge headache ensued.

But, we’re happy to report, after downloading it and looking at our current framework, that the upgrade to 4.0 from 3.9 has not caused any adverse affects on sites running latest version Aquila or Orion framework themes.

However, if you’re running an older version of our frameworks, or one of our now discontinued and no longer supported Phoenix or Taurus framework themes, then you may not want to rush into updating — you’ll experience the same issues.   For those sites, we can make a manual fix for you, however we would bill for the support involved, somewhere around $50 for a custom fix.
