WordPress 3.0 Has Arrived

And Organic Themes has updated all of our themes for this exciting new release! Most people familiar with the WordPress platform have been eagerly awaiting the release of version 3.0 since its announcement. WordPress has come a long way from its humble beginnings as a simple blogging platform. With the release of 3.0, the platform has evolved in to an even better user friendly content management system. So if you still think of WordPress as only a blogging solution, think again. There are too many improvements with the latest release to mention all of them, but here are a few that we are very excited about:

Custom Menu Management

Now you can easily manage your menu directly within the WordPress admin. Pages, categories and external links can be added to the menu and organized with ease in a drag and drop fashion.

Custom Backgrounds

Changing the background of your site has never been easier. Simply select a background color from the color wheel, or upload your own image for a new background within seconds.

Custom Header

While Organic Themes already included this feature in our premium themes, it’s now integrated seamlessly in to the platform. Making it even easier to replace your logo.

“Taking advantage of these new options will require a theme that supports WordPress 3.0. Lucky for you, ALL Organic Themes have been integrated with new WordPress 3.0 features.”

In addition, we have tweaked our existing themes even further — making several improvements. And if you’re still using version 2.9, don’t worry. Our themes are backwards compatible with WordPress 2.9. If you’ve already purchased an older version of our themes, newer version can be found on our support forums. Listed below are a few additions to each of our themes:

  1. I updated my blog to latest wordpress 3.0 version and first thing which I noticed is change in the dashboard layout.
    After that I activated the network settings to let my blog behave like MU.
    So far I have not seen any known issue apart from Google Xml sitemap plugin showing error when I enabled multi-site option.
    I’m waiting to see a quick update for Google Xml sitemap plugin, so that it can work without any issue with multi-site,or else any better alternate plugin.

  2. Organic
    3.0 install from wpmu 2.9.2 was seamless excepting deprecation and core but they were simple fixes
    Very well done to all

  3. Are the free demos updated with the custom menu intergration?

  4. If I have a customized organic themes template, can I still download WP3 or will it mess up my site?

  5. Hello Folks,

    How can I know which WP version I am using? Is there a way to check this?

    Any help would be appreciated.
