A very tiny but useful update is available from the automatic theme update provided through Github Updater.

v1.1.4 contains an alternative for the the User Photo plugin which was previously recommended for the PG-Blog theme but which is (apparently) no longer maintained.

This is the first step of a series of theme updates based on the ACF Pro plugin.

Have a look at our recent post about how to use ACF Pro with Pinegrow WP

NOTE: Using the ACF Pro plugin is not mandatory to update AND use the v1.1.4 of the PG-Blog theme. You can currently stick to the User Photo plugin (or no plugin at all).

How to proceed?

  • Purchase, install and activate the ACF Pro plugin on your WordPress setup.
  • From the Appearance menu, update the PG-Blog theme. (you should get the notification shortly)

  • Deactivate the User Photo plugin (if it’s activated)
  • From the Custom Fields menu, you will find a notification telling you that a Sync is available.
  • Click on the Sync available link.

  • Click the check box for User Profile then click on the Sync link.

  • From the Users menu, select Your Profile
  • Scroll to the end of the page and you can now set your Profile picture. (the picture will be visible on the author page)

  • While you are editing your profile, you can also also add your Biographical info so your author page will be well documented 😉
