Manga+Press 2.9.3, Manga+Press 3.0 and WordPress 4.8

Manga+Press 2.9.3 has been tested with WordPress 4.8, and has been shown to work fine with the defaults so I’ve updated the WordPress repo accordingly.

Yes, there’s going to be a Manga+Press 3.0 — and maybe (eventually) a Manga+Press NEXT. Manga+Press 3.0 will be released either this weekend or next week sometime, and I finally made the decision to pull the child-themes from Manga+Press completely. Yes, you’re reading that correctly. Manga+Press 3.0 WILL NOT have child-themes. I made the decision because I got tired of going back and forth on it, plus I could never get good usage data on whether or not these themes are being used, or if they’re at all helpful. As for features, Manga+Press 3.0 adds these features to the Comic Archive page:

  • Sorting options
  • Calendar template
  • Gallery template

There is also a Manga+Press 3.5 that’ll add an additional feature called comic bookmarking, which allows a user to keep track of where they’ve left off while reading.

Anyway, that’s it. Yes, this seems sudden but I’ve finally had some free time dedicate to the plugin and get it updated properly. Stay tuned!
