Obviously the updates to the themes and plugins haven’t come as quickly as planned. I’ve been engrossed in another long term project that has consumed most of my bandwidth. As you all should know, the theme and plugins have worked well with every WordPress upgrade and this remains. This site is running on WP 4.5.3 with no issues. Development testing against PHP7 has gone swimmingly. The bottom line is that things simply don’t break. So upgrade if you haven’t. Updates are still in the queue….
Updates to the Semiologic plugins and themes for WordPress 4.5 compatibility are forthcoming. Basically most everything works just fine, as it always has with every WP release. Yet, WP is going through endless changes for the sake of change that always has the potential to break things.
Sem-Cache already delivered great results in website performance when compared to WP Super Cache and W3 Total Cache. With version 2.11 of Sem-Cache, performance is improved and a few hidden bugs squashed. Simply upgrade the plugin. I would recommend turning caching off then back on to get the cached rebuilt immediately.
Version 2.5 of the Pinnacle theme has been released. The primary focus of this release is allowing for additional, and more complex, Header and Footer areas. Semiologic Reloaded introduced a Header and Footer Boxes Bar to which widgets can be added. This bar was then added into the Header/Footer. This provided for columnar type content in those areas. This functionality was kept in Pinnacle to allow for migration from Reloaded to Pinnacle.
