Metro WordPress Theme Updated – v1.1 is here!

Hello everyone,

Every so often, we roll out some theme updates to either add new functionality, address the latest best practices on the web, or to address user issues. We’ve just released Metro version 1.1, which had some improvements in the theme for speed and functionality, as well as removing deprecated functionality.

Metro v1.1

A list of the changes is available below:

  • You can upload any size of logo image without modifying CSS.
  • New framework implementation, code and speed optimization.
  • Small slider issue resolved.
  • Added few words in .po file for translation.
  • Options panel error fixed for few servers.
  • Slider navigation color can change with primary color.
  • Small design improvements.
  • Removed Twitter, Facebook & RSS counter widget. (Reason: FeedBurner deprecated APIs)
  • Slider dropdown can show more than 20 categories.
  • Pinterest counter button added.
  • Removed Digg button.
  • New social profile widget added.
  • Improved Recent Posts, Category posts and Tabbed widget.

Steps to Upgrade:

  1. Open cPanel and find the folder named ‘metro’ in themes.
  2. Create backup of this zip folder and delete it.
  3. Add new theme folder or install theme using WordPress.
  4. Activate it, you will not lose any settings from Options Panel but if you have made any changes in core theme files, then those changes will be lost.
