A work in progress: Updating all themes’ menus

(Updated 2020-08-27: Now complete. If you are experiencing issues with the update, read more below.)

I’m currently working to update all themes’ menu base, which has not been touched since 2013. The new update comes with a11y-friendly code. It also supports keyboard navigation (expanding dropdowns) and many other neat features.

The mobile menu now has nice transitions and collapsed sub-menus that can be expanded level-by-level.

The whole update takes quite a while to do for each theme, as the menus look has to be remade from the ground up, styling options needs to be remade too, and in some cases, dark mode needs additional menu styling.

All themes updated to Kirki 3.1.5, ready for WordPress 5.5

All premium and free themes have been updated to the latest version of Kirki (3.1.5) which has full support for WordPress 5.5. This means that you can safely upgrade to WordPress 5.5 when it goes live later this month.

If you are having issues with your theme, first try to install the jQuery Migrate Helper plugin. If that does not fix your issue, add this to your functions.php:

add_filter('wp_lazy_loading_enabled', '__return_false');

All 25 themes updated

Today all 14 free themes and 11 premium themes have been updated. The update includes a folder structure update for premium themes, Kirki 3.1.0 update and old CSS cleanup. A Chrome overflow bug has been fixed for the themes with the issue as well.

All themes have had their Gutenberg/blocks support improved and the responsive CSS on/off option has been removed as it was never used. Language file has been updated. The review link has been updated for the free themes – it removed ?filter=5, which gave an inaccurate view of only 5-star reviews.
