    Hi

    I am running Infocus 3.6, but I notice in one of the posts that someone is running version 3.9. What is the latest version, and where can I:-
    - Find the release log
    - Download the latest release?

    Thanks and regards,
    Jana

    Hi Jana,

    Sorry to be the bearer of bad news but no one from MSMW staff have responded to this forum or email contacts for over a year. Don't ask me why they disappeared though...I don't know...I am just another MSMW client like you waiting for MSMW to respond.

    I have created a community group for the MSMW open source themes called https://backstopthemes.com but unfortunately this does not include Awake and inFocus since these are proprietary ThemeForest distributed themes.

    Because these are proprietary themes you can only legally get them from ThemeForest but ThemeForest has stopped distributing these themes.

    Again...sorry to be the bearer of bad news.

    Kind regards
    Tim (not from MSMW)

    Hi Tim

    Good of you to write and tell me ... thanks. It's a relief to hear from someone about what is going on.

    I wrote to Envato Marketplace (themeforest) for support and they were good enough to give me a one-time download of the latest version of Infocus. Of course, it's still 2 years old (out of date), but at least I am now on the latest version that was available.

    Well done on making an open source themes community! What's the future of backstopthemes.com? Do you plan to keep the Method and Elegance themes up to date and compatible with new releases of WordPress?

    I'd be interested to switching to one of those themes if they are going to be kept up to date/free of security vulnerabilities.

    Thanks again for reaching out.

    Kind regards to you too,
    Jana

    Hi Jana,

    Thank you for reaching out :-)

    For BackStop Themes future please have a look at my proposed "open" charging model and let me know what you think (You can comment on the issue directly in GitLab).

    https://gitlab.com/BackStopThemes/GeneralIssuesForum/issues/5

    If you are looking to switch to a BackStop Theme be forewarned that WordPress Theme switching is not a clean model. There can be a number of quirks to getting a new theme install to look similar to the previous theme. Widgets, for example, don't port. You will need to copy your old widgets and re-create them under the new theme.

    You'll probably want to wait for the next BST release for 4.8 compliance (later this week).

    There is an ex-MSMW Awake user who is currently trying to migrate to BST-Construct. She is finding this problematic. If you do switch to BST it would be great if you could share your experience. I'll help where I can but I am handcuffed because the Awake and Infocus are proprietary themes so I can't get a copy and create a migration plan without rising the BackStop Themes initiative.

    NOTE: If you are not on the BST newsletter you can send me your email address and I will put you on the list:

    admin@backstopthemes.com

    Cheers,
    Tim
