GeneratePress 2.4.0

GeneratePress 2.4.0 is now available in your Dashboards!

Instead of adding a bunch of new features in this version, we focused on making GeneratePress more flexible. This means we’ve added a bunch of new hooks and filters, which will make adding new features easier in the future.

We were hoping to get the accessibility-ready tag on added to this version, but we hit a roadblock, unfortunately. We’re not able to get that tag without underlining all links in the content area by default. Since we’re not comfortable with introducing a major design change like that in an update, we opted out of the tag for now.

That being said, accessibility is hugely important to us, so we’ve made some other improvements in this version to make things more accessible.
