Version released: 5.0.8
Date: June 30th, 2015
Update Type: Vulnerability of Script & Maintenance Updates
Today marks yet another release of the 5.0 series, Version 5.0.8.
This update is a pre-release prior to our upcoming version of 5.1. Due to a vulnerability discovered in prettyPhoto, we found it necessary to release another pre-release to the version 5.1 release which will include new features such as WooCommerce, Visual Composer and other items of much interest. This version 5.0.8 also addresses some minor bug fixes as well a few new features included.
IMPORTANT that you remember to BACKUP FIRST before you update!
We cannot be held responsible for any issues. If there are issues, we encourage a backup for safe keep.
That being said, updating your version of KingSize WordPress should be relatively simple and straightforward.
Using an FTP program of your choice (ie., FileZilla it’s free!) log into your hosting environment.
Navigate to your WordPress installation and find “/wp-content/themes/” and inside it “/kingsize/”.
Assuming you’ve downloaded the updated version, you want to open the folder you downloaded (from Themeforest) and navigate to:
DESKTOP -> KingSize WordPress 5.0.8 -> Template Files -> 1. Version 5.0.8 (NEW)
Inside this folder you will find two folders labeled as “kingsize“. One is zipped, the other is not.
It’s quicker to upload the zipped version but also requires you taking additional steps such as logging into your hosting account control panel, going to File Manager and then locating that zipped folder you’ve uploaded and then extract it to overwrite the existing “/kingsize/” folder. The already extracted folder on your desktop can be uploaded to overwrite the existing folder in your “/themes/” directory but will take longer to overwrite those individual files. The method preferred is up to you.
Once you’ve overwritten that existing “/kingsize/” folder you should now be running the latest version.
To confirm, log into your WordPress Dashboard -> Appearance -> Themes and check the screenshot version.
Note: If you’ve a caching plugin installed, be sure to clear the cache after updating.

Bugs & Fixes
Here are some explanations to the bugs and issues that were addressed in this update:[table type=”zebra_vertical”]
Newly Added Features & Changes
New Style Options for Input Fields
It is a popular request from our buyers in the support forums, to change the background colour and font colour of the input fields (such as Comments, Contact, Forms, Search, etc). We’ve included new options to change these colours from the default so you will no longer have to use CSS to override these. They’re located in your “Theme Options > Styling Options” near the bottom of the options there.
Another popular request is enabling the option in WordPress SEO by Yoast for site breadcrumbs.
By default, this feature is disabled.
Though now you can download and install the plugin and enable via the plugin the breadcrumbs.
Placement is standard and shown beneath the page titles when enabled via WordPress SEO plugin.
