2.7 Release Notes

New name, design and layout option

Please note: Version 2.7 brings some changes on a structural level. The upgrade should work nicely; but just in case you want to downgrade afterward, make sure to export your menu structure and keep it as a backup before you upgrade.

If you change and save elements in version 2.7 and then try to downgrade, there might be issues.

If you are upgrading to Linchpin Navigation Menus 2.7, please make sure to upgrade to Linchpin Theme Plugin 2.12 as well, if you are using both. Previous versions of Linchpin Theme Plugin don't support styling of menus in Linchpin Navigation Menus 2.7.

If you made any changes to your menu design via Custom CSS, you might want to check those after upgrading. With version 2.7 we changed some of the CSS selectors.

Versions prior to 2.7 had an overall CSS class called menu-editor-navigation

Starting with version 2.7 the overall CSS class is called linchpin-navigation-menus

Our recommendation regarding Custom CSS is: Take it all out and have a look at the menu as it is without Custom CSS. Afterward add again what you still deem necessary.
