“No Sidebar” Layouts

In this release, we’ve added a default layout setting for your pages or posts to have no sidebar. You can see an example of this layout at the Stranger Studios blog here.

Improved Image Accessibility and SEO

In this release, we took a look at all the images that were placed in the theme by default, such as featured images, author avatars, and more. Featured Images now include the image’s alternate text and any author or user avatar shown on the site will set the “alt” attribute to the user’s display name.

New “Sticky Navbar” Feature

You can now anchor your primary navigation menu to the top of the page when users scroll past the masthead of your site.
