Decibel Version 3
Decibel has been updated to version 3.
We took the best from our most recent music themes and put it back to Decibel to make it even better. We also added new exlusive features.
- The backend has been re-designed.
- The theme design has been fully polished and modernized.
- Some secondary design features will be removed (icons in menu item)
- The theme options will be moved to the customizer.
- Many design options will be added.
- Many page options will be added below your page editor.
- Tons of features and page builder elements will be added via our Wolf WPBakery Page Builder Extension.
- We have added many new homepages, inner pages and post type layouts to the demo content.
- Wolf Tour Dates plugin will be updated to Wolf Events.
- The Wolf Slider plugin will be deprecated in favor of the page builder slider elements and the content block system. It will still be available within the theme for a while.
