Guide To Microthemer V4 Changes
Microthemer version 4 is ready for you to download or update via your WordPress dashboard. We’ve jiggled a few things around and added some useful new features. This article covers the main changes.
New Features At A Glance
New Color Picker
This one was a long time coming. The new color picker supports RGB/A and HSL/A color codes as well as hex codes. The large picker area gives very finegrained control over color variations. We’ve left some space for color pallettes that will be added in a future version. And a color sampler tool will also be added in time.
Paving the way for the future
The idea behind version 4 was to get all of the design changes done in one go so that user adjustment can be a one time thing. Based on your feedback we have a very long list of improvements. Not all of them have been implemented in version 4. But we looked ahead and made sure that features requiring a significant layout change would be preempted in this version. That’s why the selector wizard has been redesigned without any functional changes for instance. This paves the way for a series of features all focused on making it quicker and easier to target elements on the page with selectors correctly.

But we’re adding more docs first!
Before we do any of the features outlined above we’re going to add more articles and video tutorials, starting with a long overdue tutorial on designing responsively with Microthemer. We held off a doing a bug push on the docs because we wanted to address some fundamental issues with Microthemer before documenting a soon to be outdated system. Now that we’ve addressed those issues, we’re looking forward to showing you how to make the most of Microthemer.
As usual, your feedback is always welcome.
