Wild Apricot no longer supporting 6 older themes

As of April 24, 2017, Wild Apricot has stopped supporting a small number of older website themes. This will allow us to focus our development and testing efforts on newer, more responsive themes. 

Which themes are we talking about? 

The older themes that we are no longer supporting are:

  • Blueprint
  • Clean Lines
  • Dark Impact
  • Granite
  • Treehouse
  • White Space

Why are we doing this? 

These themes are outdated and the source of a number of bugs. Few clients are switching to them, and many are switching away from them. 

Basically, they are not worth the effort of updating and maintaining. Instead, we will continue to release new, modern-looking website themes, and continue supporting our many other fully responsive themes

What do we mean by not supporting? 

We mean:

  • We won’t be testing new features to make sure they work properly with these themes
  • These themes will no longer appear as options within the website theme gallery
  • If you switch from an older theme that is no longer supported, you will not be able to switch back to it later

If you are currently using one of these themes, your site will continue to function as before, although new gadgets – or new features for existing gadgets – may not work as expected with these themes. To check which theme you are currently using, hover over the Website menu in admin view and click the Theme option. For instructions on switching themes, click here

Other already unsupported themes 

With the release of Version 5.0 of Wild Apricot in 2014, support was dropped for these website themes:

  • Aurora horizontal/hybrid
  • Basic
  • Classic
  • Clouds
  • Dark
  • Glass
  • Keynote
  • Modern
  • Memo
  • Nature
  • Notebook
  • Transparent
