News 1.1 Child Theme Released

StudioPress is happy to announce the release of the News 1.1 child theme. This updated child theme works on the Genesis Theme Framework and can be downloaded by Pro Plus members in the support forum. All others can purchase the package here.

If you have already purchased the Genesis Theme Framework and any other child theme previously, you can simply purchase the child package by itself, otherwise you need the News + Genesis Theme package.

New Features

We are also very pleased to announce that the News theme has been updated with new features:

  • Support for Custom Background
  • Includes Footer Widgets
  • Minor Cosmetic Style Changes
  • Topnav Custom Menu

The News 1.1 child theme now has ID’s registered for the widget areas, so if you’re moving from 1.0 to 1.1, your widgets will get placed into the Inactive Widgets section in your dashboard. You’ll have to move them back into the appropriate areas, but you won’t actually lose them.

Take it for a test drive…

Here’s a screenshot of the News Child Theme:
