    Hi All,

    This week (November 17th – November 21st) and next week (November 24th – 28th) we will be spending a ton of time on updating Business Identity to include new features, bug fixes, and whatever else we can come up with for the theme during that time. If anything in your website seems suddenly broken or wonky due to the updates that we’re shipping, please don’t hesitate to open a support request here.

    Here are a few things that we’ll be adding in:

    • New page templates
    • A new featured content slider
    • Better widget handling for cases where fewer than 4 widgets are in use
    • Better front page blog handling (number of posts, etc.)
    • Post format support
    • And more…

    I’ll do my best to minimize any large or sudden changes to your sites but wanted to announce the enhancements in the forum in case something seems weird or out of place to you all.

    Thanks a ton and I’ll update this thread with more information about what’s been added into the theme during the next two weeks!

    November 19th update:

    Footer widgets and front page widgets have been updated so that you’re able to use 1, 2, or 3 widgets and have them expand out to the available space given to them. Previously every widget had a max width of 25% of the space of the footer, but now if you have 1 widget then it will take up 100% of the footer area. If you have 2 widgets then they will take 50% of the footer area, and if you have 3 widgets then they will take 33% of the footer area.
