We’ve rolled out second iteration of our first premium theme, MonokromePlus. There are no changes on the design or the information architecture (wouldn’t want to spoil the look and feel and also the theme brand).
However, we’ve actually overhauled the whole theme from the inside. The new version is now integrated with the new ThemeBaker admin panel, Flickr Photosets fetching support and social media tools integration. So in a nutshell, the design’s still intact, just an adjustment from under the hood and 2 additional new features.
There are few logics behind our action :
- User’s request.
At ThemeBaker, we’re all ears. When we got a function request, we will list it out first and bring to life which function that we think necessary and received the most request.
- To deliver a new experience for the user when using our theme
Because we’ve implemented the new ThemeBaker admin panel and we want our users to experience it first hand, to know the easiness of use and how simple the new admin panel is.
- Integrate with ThemeBaker admin panel version 2.
- Flickr photoset fetching support.
- Social media toolbar integration.
- Simple yet beautiful vignette effect on the main gallery.

We hope that the new and revamped MonokromePlus will satisfy the needs of WordPress and Flickr lover specifically. Check out more details and MonokromePlus demo here.
