- revert to upstream toolkit version 2.3
- minor fix for footer related links
v2.1.1 is a bugfix release. Primary changes are fixes for font sizes and other styles so that styles set in the visual editor correctly persist to the published version of a page. This applies to all blocks that allow setting of font size and style.
Version 2.1 of the University of Illinois WordPress theme introduces three new WordPress Blocks (and a few blocks related to them):
The 2.1 release also includes a host of minor bugfixes, many related to harmonizing formatting options made available in the WordPress editor with the new University of Illinois Web Components 2.0 toolkit.css that was added in the 2.0 release of this theme. This release also increases the parity between the page/post display while editing content in the WordPress Block Editor and the final rendered view of the page.
Version 2.0 of the Illinois Web Theme for WordPress brings a host of modified styling to your site. Thanks to the Web Components Toolkit version 2.0, it incorporates a lot of improvements to page layout and readability. In addition to upgrading the look and feel of your content, the 2.0 release of the WordPress Theme presents several new highlights, including:
The header section spans the full browser width with the gray navigation bar. You can now add links to the upper right-hand portion of the header (above the search tool). These links will also show up in the menu (after your site navigation, if you have any) on mobile/narrow viewport width devices. This feature can be accessed from your WordPress Dashboard > Theme Settings > Header Links.
You can now add links to your social media (and related) platform profiles. Just add the URL for your profile page on that platform, and the web components will handle automatically linking the service and corresponding icon. This feature can be accessed from your WordPress Dashboard > Theme Settings > Social Media and Similar Services.
You can now add Navigation Elements (a stylized list of links with a heading) as well as freeform content (now labeled Freeform Sections) to Footer Sections. This feature can be accessed from your WordPress Dashboard > Theme Settings > Footer Sections. Each Footer section now offers the choice between Freeform Sections or Navigation Elements.
