Version 2.0 – 5 April 2019

Ammi 2.0 is now available! This is a big theme update that primarily relates to the new requirements for all WordPress themes on the market. Link:

Please read the changes before updating the theme.

1. Changes related to new requirements:

- All theme code has been edited to meet WordPress code standards. Links:
  - PHP Coding Standards:
  - HTML Coding Standards:
  - CSS Coding Standards:
  - JavaScript Coding Standards:
- Now the theme uses the get_theme_file_path() function to include files. Example: require_once get_theme_file_path( '/assets/class-tgm-plugin-activation.php' ).
- Some sanitization functions in the customizer have been changed.
- Some theme functions are now not allowed in the theme, and they have been moved to plugins ( link: ). These are all widgets and social share buttons. Now, when updating (or installing) the theme, you will need to install 2 additional plugins (if you need these functions): Ammi Social Media and Ammi Widgets. This also means that if you use additional widgets that were included in later versions of the theme, then after updating the theme you must re-activate them (Appearance > Widgets), because old widgets will not work, since they have been removed from the theme. New widgets will be available only after installing and activating the "Ammi Widgets" plugin.

2. All other changes:

- Updated: Documentation.
- Updated: Bootstrap v3.4.1.
- Updated: Superfish v1.7.10.
- The rel="noopener" attribute has been added to all links that have the target="_blank" attribute.
- The show-hide-meta-boxes.js file has been moved from the "assets" folder to the "js" folder.
- Added permission to use the "rel" attribute in links.
- Changed some phrases (or option names) to better understand the purpose of some options. Examples:
  - Thumbnail type -> Media type;
  - Featured Image -> Featured image and popup window with video player;
  - etc...
- Additional classes for posts are added through the "post_class" filter: add_filter( 'post_class', 'ammi_custom_post_classes', 10, 3 ).
- Styles for the classic editor have been rewritten.
- Added new option: Appearance > Customize > General Settings > "Follow us" Text.
- Added new option: Appearance > Customize > Footer > "Follow us" Text.
- Added new option: Appearance > Customize > General Settings > Show header image and header text only on the first page.
- Some theme styles have been changed.
