New Release: Rishi Theme 1.1.5

We’re excited to announce a new update for Rishi Theme! This version includes several new features, including additional header elements and a new feature to add featured image credit. We’ve also made some behind-the-scenes improvements to fix a few issues in the previous version. 

Rishi Theme 1.1.5 is a lot better: You can enable or disable the custom schema in this new version as needed. The Random Posts header element, a breath of fresh air for your website visitors, will recommend a random post and spice up your content delivery.

We hope you enjoy the new update!

Additional Header Elements

The header now has additional elements and is more valuable for your user. These additional elements are intended to spark intimacy with website visitors and serve them a more personalized experience. 

Display local time

Your website visitors come from multiple regions and time zones. Displaying a single time zone on the header creates confusion and is of little help to the user. The new version now lets you select an option to display their local time no matter whichever time zone they are from.  

Display current date

An additional feature to display a time zone-specific date for your website visitors.

Display image

You can now add an image to your website header. Add your logo, a custom picture, an emoji, or an advertisement image- the image section lets you be creative. 

Random Posts

Oftentimes, the end-user doesn’t have a clear idea of what they want. As the name suggests, the Random Posts element recommends a random post that is valuable to the reader.

Featured Image Credit

Some free and premium photos from stock photo portals require attribution and credit. The featured image credit feature now lets you add a neat attribution to the source and mention the original artist.

Enable/ Disable Schema

Adding a schema helps search engines understand your site better, which eventually boosts SEO. However, if you are okay with an existing custom schema or simply don’t feel like using one, this feature makes it easy to enable/ disable schema.

Web Stories Plugin Compatibility

In the latest update of Rishi Companion plugin, we have added the compatibility for Web Stories plugins. The theme adds some extra features to customize how you want to display stories on your website.

Read it Later

This feature is synonymous with the bookmark option but for individual posts and pages. You can then conveniently create a dedicated page to display the list of posts that the users save. This dedicated page can be displayed anywhere – as a menu option in the header or a standalone page.
