Support » Theme: Rams » Upcoming changes to Rams

  • Theme Author Anders Norén


    Hi everyone,

    I’ve just submitted version 1.11 of Rams to the WordPress theme depository for review. It should be live within a month. Version 1.11 includes (long overdue) fixes to a couple of frequently reported issues. More importantly though, it also makes some fundamental changes to how Rams works. These include:

    • Removing the video post format altogether.
    • Changing the block quote format so that the meta fields are no longer used to add quotes.

    Why the changes? Previous versions of Rams included meta fields in the post editor to enable quotes and featured videos. Unfortunately, this was in conflict with one of the requirements for themes on the theme depository: “Themes must not define the generation of user content“.

    In short, the meta fields shouldn’t have been in the themes in the first place. Despite this, Rams (and most of my other themes) were approved for release. When this was discovered, I was unable to submit any other updates to any of my themes until the meta field functionality was removed. For me to able to keep my themes updated, I had to make the changes listed above.

    I apologize for any inconvenience these changes will cause. If you have any questions about the changes, let me know.

    — Anders
