Stack for WordPress, our flagship premium WP theme has been one of the most well-received offerings of all time. Part of what has made Stack so popular has been the regular updates we have provided, which each have added something new with each iteration – but today we are announcing a major update in the form if Stack 1.5 (coming very soon!)

Whats New in Stack 1.5?

The update includes a bunch of new features, from all new demo pages such as the Accommodation homepage to brand new blog layouts! There is too much to mention here but here is a run down of what you can expect.

New Blog Layout – we have added two brand new blog feeds to the already expansive selection. These are a portfolio style blog, and a detailed row of posts.

New Gallery Options – you can now create an awesome carousel + lightbox gallery for really showing off your images at there best

New Header Layouts – By popular demand, the centered header style can now also display the top bar.

New Lighter Font Icon file option – Another user requested feature here. Whilst most users love the choice of 1000+ icons we provide in Stack, understandably having so many icons available adds to the overall page size which in some cases is not ideal. As of Stack 1.5 you can now disable this so only a core set of icons is loaded which can further decrease page loading speeds (though beware that most icons – other than the few which are core to Stack’s design will no longer be available of course)

Shop Header Override Added – You can now specify and alternative header layout for your WooCommerce powered shop pages, similar to what is offered for Portfolio items etc.

Embedded Videos now load much faster – Thanks to @khromov via GitHub, the inline embeds now cache there requests making the load times considerably quicker
