New Admin Page for supported x2 theme extensions
Introduced in the last version already, now you can manage and download supported theme extensions directly inside your wp-admin!
Just go to Appearance -> x2 Extensions to see which free and premium plugins the theme supports… and download them there directly! :)
Some features will have to go
Please note: all shortcodes will have to go sooner or later. They will all come back as a separate WordPress Plugin, so that you are not dependend on the theme when using them. This way they will not break your layout when switching your theme. Besides they will work with all WordPress Themes then!
As explained already in the last blogpost about x2 we are going to remove all plugin functionality from the theme step by step. So only theme features will stay that take care of how something is presented, not to add something. Please read more about this in the last blogposts, there you will also find further links.
Within the next months the x2 theme will become a fully reworked mobile-first developed responsive WordPress theme (with version 2.0).
