Site Setup Wizard Accessibility
You may have noticed some changes to the look and feel of the site creation process recently. As part of our accessibility efforts, changes have been made to the Site Setup Wizard to ensure it is accessible to all clients.
In an effort to ensure as many of our current themes are accessible as possible, we released several fixes to minor accessibility problems with our “Pro” themes. These include improved menu support and minor CSS changes.
NYU Standard theme update
The official NYU Standard theme was updated to version 0.1.3 to increase accessibility. Thanks to Marie Mack on the DigiComms team for her work on this project.
This release gives all users access to custom CSS without needing to install a plugin. The custom CSS editor is available in the Customizer.
Updates to themes and plugins created and maintained by our vendors and the WordPress community were also included in this release.
