The Complete Guide to Updating Enfold

Updating WordPress Themes is easy, but if you are new to themeforest and/or WordPress here is a guide to help you

In 2015, quickly putting together a professional looking WordPress site that displays perfectly across all devices has never been easier. The days of needing a team of eye-wateringly expensive external developers to fine-tune your site for weeks – if not months – are now thankfully in the past.

Enfold ships with a lifetime guarantee of free updates, and in this article we’ll walk through everything you need to know to update safely and with confidence for many years to come.

Enfold Version 3.0 – Bigger, better, faster

By far the biggest update since the introduction of Enfold one year ago 

Enfold has come a long way during the last year. We have added a lot of updates over time, but this is the biggest one by far. And even though the theme was called “Multi-Purpose” from the beginning I think its save to say that this word gets a new meaning with our latest update :) – Read more –

Enfold Version 2.9 – Images with Hotspots, new Lightbox and some portfolio love

The latest version of the Enfold Theme once again adds a mix of features we liked and stuff that was requested in our Enfold Feature Request center:

  • We have added a new template builder element: Image with Hotspots – which allow you to add any number of hotspots and tooltips to an image
  • We got a new Header style called “Transparent glass
  • We added a new modern Lightbox script instead of outdated PrettyPhoto Lightbox. (Example)
  • We improved the portfolio element so it can now be used as a fullwidth element as well (please note that it might be necessary to update some pages if you want to keep your current look by putting the portfolio into a 1/1 column element)
