Current Version 1.2: August 03rd, 2018

I’m excited to announce that I have made some “small” but big changes in the styling of the theme! I have made a number of elements smaller, more responsive, and easier to see across all devices. I have also made videos more responsive across the theme with a new “Content Embed Shortcode”. There are now new format styles for single image, gallery, audio, and video formats; and for posts with no thumbnail. I have also included “current page/tab” indicators in the theme, so you can now tell what page your on. I have added a new style for tables.

Along with style and the “Content Embed Shortcode” I have also added a new “Video Title Shortcode” which will print video title credit which you enter manually. I further updated the “Columns Shortcode” and fixed the ID issue with singular ID codes.

Please make sure to read the documentation as there has been some major updates to the stylesheet in which is reflected within the documentation.
