A feature-rich release for Memberlite is here! In this release, we added three awesome new features including a grid-format blog layout, an optional “author block” for single posts, and a new image setting to show a block image in the post excerpt in the archive or single view.

We have also tightened up security, updated the Font Awesome library to 6.2, improved page speed with locally hosted Google Fonts, and did more general improvements to theme design and customization options.

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