Good News For Hiero Theme Fans
I have some good news for the fans of this theme, the Hiero theme!
In one of the blog posts here that I no longer remember who wrote it, it was said that this Hiero theme is no longer being updated by its developers. In the blog post, users of this theme is being warned and are encouraged to consider other more updated themes.
(*That's the advantage of being a member of a community like Wealthy Affiliate, fellow members care*)
How many of us here are using this theme?
I guess about 1 in every 5 bootcamp sites use this theme. It's the one being used by Kyle in his examples. Probably the reason why they like it so much is that of its simplicity.
What's the risk of using a theme that's no longer updated?
Not only for months, but for years already.
There will be loopholes in security. When I was blogging outside WA, my site got hacked several times all because I was using a theme that's not updated. Hackers or the bad guys can see loopholes and can take advantage of it.
I'm not a technical person, I'm a pharmacist by profession, but I understand it's not good to use a theme that lacks updating. It's the reason why I dropped Omega by Theme Hall in favor of Divi.
Theme not updated or maybe, abandoned by developers for unknown reason.
And so is your favorite theme then, Hiero.
But not anymore today!
While updating my new theme, Divi, I saw beside it the Hiero theme with a yellow color notice saying "a new version is available".
At last, they updated the theme.
Good news, right?
For fans of this simple theme, Hiero. It seems, its developers are on it now. And you can now continue using the theme without worries! :)
You like it, then make the most out of it.
Yours in progress,
