GP Premium 1.2.90

GP Premium 1.2.90 has officially been released.

This is the biggest update GP Premium has ever had, and is the result of months of hard work and testing.

This update has been tested by numerous volunteers – thank you so much to everyone who helped me make sure everything is working well!

New Sections

The biggest change is with the Sections add-on. It has been completely re-built from the ground up, and in my opinion is much better looking and more efficient.


Typography also underwent a massive change. The Customizer now shows the top 200 most popular Google Fonts. You can adjust this number, or include fonts are aren’t included using this guide.

Also, previously your website had to loop through the 800+ fonts on every page load just to grab the font category and variants. Now, the category and variants are saved to your database, so there’s no need to loop through all of those fonts every time you load a page. This is a big boost to performance that I’m super happy with.


Here’s the full list of changes made:
