Creative Themes just pushed a new big and long awaited update. Blocksy 1.8 brings loads of new awesome features, speed improvements, and more to “the most innovative and lightning fast” WordPress theme. They also released two brand-new starter sites.
Check out the some of the new features and improvements:
- Better loading strategy for dynamic CSS and Google Fonts
- Improved Local Google Fonts extension and better support for Variable Fonts
- Enhanced Content Blocks: Hooks are now more stable and flexible. The hooks table now shows a preview of the location and conditions. It also allows you to quickly enable or disable a hook. Language based conditions are finally in there as well. You can even translate hooks via WPML, Polylang or TranslatePress.
