This is not a big update for Whisper, but in this version, we have improved some things, added options to make Whisper easier to use. Let’s see what’s new in Whisper 2.0.1:
Portfolio archive and Portfolio category pages
Although we have 2 page templates for portfolio in Whisper (normal 3 columns and hexagon 3 columns), and that’s enough to display all portfolio items on your website, but in some rarely cases, people want to separate portfolios into categories and display them as separated pages. This is one request we received from a buyer and we completed it in this version.
From now when you view portfolio archive or portfolio category pages, you’ll see normal 3 columns page by default.
Category option for recent posts shortcode
Previously in Whisper, the
[[posts]] shortcode always took latest posts from your blog and display it. In this version, we added 1 more option
"category" to allow it to pull posts from a specific category only. That might help you if you want to display on your homepage only latest news from “Company News” category, for example.
To know how to use the shortcode, please take a look at documentations (bundled with theme when you download).
Small improvements in Whisper 2.0.1 for better user experience
Customizer was added in Whisper 2.0, but we think not many people know about it. So we made a “Big Button” in the top of our Theme Options to show use a link to Customizer page (number 1 in the image below – extracted from our documentation).
So, if you forget or you don’t know about Customizer, here is the shortest way to reach it!
In this version, we also improved responsiveness for header in tablets and fix form shortcode for contact page not saving.
