I’m pleased to announce that Shop Front is now hosted on WordPress.org.
A couple of important things to note:
Shop Front now requires Easy Digital Downloads 1.7 or greater
Easy Digital Downloads 1.7 was released this week (already at v1.7.1) and with it came some modifications to purchase buttons. Because of these changes, Shop Front now requires Easy Digital Downloads 1.7 or greater.
Automatic theme updates are now handled via WordPress.org
There’s no need anymore for a license key to receive automatic theme updates, as WordPress.org now handles the theme updates. Shop Front is still available to download from this website, and it will upgrade fine.
Not selling digital products just yet?
Shop Front also functions as a typical WordPress blog without Easy Digital Downloads, so if you’re just starting your website and not quite sure if you’ll be selling digital products in the future, there’s no harm in using Shop Front. When the time comes to sell your digital products, you’ll be all set!
