Font Awesome

Font Awesome will no longer be updated in GeneratePress as of 2.1. If you have Font Awesome enabled on your site, it will continue to work as normal. If it’s deactivated, the “Load essential icons” option in the Customizer will no longer be visible.

Instead of using Font Awesome within the theme, we suggest using a plugin like

New Icons

Instead of using Font Awesome for our theme icons, we had brand new custom icons created specifically for GeneratePress. These icons are more modern than the previous Font Awesome 4 icons.

Huge thanks to Peter and Paul for designing these for us!

Fewer HTTP Requests

We were able to optimize and move things around, which resulted in 2 fewer HTTP requests. This means when you first install GeneratePress, there’s only 5 HTTP requests (3 CSS, 2 JS).

Cleaner CSS GeneratePress 2.1.1 Free Download

We cleaned up style.css a bit and removed any Secondary Navigation specific CSS, which was added to GP Premium 1.6. If you’re using the Secondary Navigation and don’t have GPP 1.6, open a support topic and we’ll provide the necessary CSS for you.

We also removed a couple of wildcard selectors, which were a little greedy and caused some weirdness with some plugins. More specific selectors are now used, which will reduce conflicts.

Easier Updated Date GeneratePress 2.1.1 Free Download

The updated date HTML has been moved in front of the published date HTML, which should help Google pick up on it easier. It also makes it easier to display the updated date instead of the published date.

.posted-on .updated {
    display: inline-block;

.posted-on .updated:before {
    content: "Last Updated ";

.posted-on .updated + .entry-date {
    display: none;

Simplified Mobile Menu CSS

The mobile menu CSS has been simplified, which will make it much easier to initiate the mobile menu at a different width than the default.
