Memberlite v4.3 Release

A feature and enhancement-rich release for Memberlite is here. In this release, we’ve improved the theme’s responsive styling and added more support for the WordPress v5.0+ block editor, including custom colors in the editor’s color palette and expanded styling for built-in blocks.

Theme updates can be made directly in your WordPress site’s admin under Dashboard > Updates > Update Themes.

About the Update

This update includes a collection of bug fixes related to the entry meta replacements available in Customizer under “Memberlite Options”. We’ve also fixed an escaping bug that in certain cases would not respect a color setting for your site’s title and tagline.

By request, we added support for RTL. Please comment below if you are using Memberlite for an RTL site and see any improper formatting. We want to continue to improve the theme’s handling of RTL and need the community to report back if there are outstanding style needs.

Some of the more exciting improvements include the option to set your site’s primary menu as a sticky navbar. This setting can be found under Appearance > Customize > Memberlite Options. You’ll see that the primary navigation bar now sticks to the top of the page on scroll (large screens only).

The header now uses a grid layout so that your site’s branding and mobile menu button toggle do not overlap on small screens.

If you are using the block editor as part of WordPress v5.0+, you can now expect Memberlite to support styles for core blocks, including blockquotes, image gallery displays, captions. We’ve also added styling for default font sizing adjustments (small, medium, large, huge).

In addition to these block support features, we are also now customizing the editor’s color palette according to your chosen scheme or custom selections as made under Appearance > Customize > Colors.
