It’s always hard breaking the news; we’re discontinuing a few more themes.
In fact, it took me longer to write the line above, that it would take me to write an autobiography. In a sense, these themes are part of our biography as they led the way from a two-person side project to a four-person full-time passion.
Anyway, here is the list:
- IgniteApp – iPhone / Android application theme
- Dionysus – Music artist’s theme
- NYC – Tumblr-like theme
- Sophocles – Product / Business theme
- Informati – Magazine theme
- Odyssey – News / Magazine theme
- Artemis – Product / Business theme
- Aphrodite – Portfolio theme
The themes will no longer be available for purchase, however they will remain available to download by existing members until their End of Life date, the 31st of March, 2016. The last guaranteed compatible version of WordPress is v4.1.1
What does that mean?
While the themes are discontinued and before their End of Life date is reached (1 year from the discontinuation date) support will be limited to the version of WordPress that was current at the date of discontinuation. No new features will be added, and any third-party integrations that may stop working due to changes on their side, will not be fixed. Essentially, support will only be provided for theme-related bugs, applicable to the specified version of WordPress. Minor customization help will still be provided, subject to the additional restrictions stated above.
What should I do?
Users are urged to search for a new theme, and plan the switch within the discontinuation period.
