Important upgrade notes
For those upgrading from a previous version of UberMenu, there are a few changes to the plugin to be aware of.
UberMenu 2.3 has a lot of refactoring and refining to the core code. It’s best to delete the previous plugin files and replace them with the new version. Don’t forget to back up any changes!
Style Generator Skins
In the latest version of UberMenu, LIs are now qualified with the .menu-item class in stylesheets in an effort to improve widget and shortcode style compatibility. As a result, you may need to re-save your style generator styles in order to update the skin to be compatible with the latest version.
If you are using a custom.css file, you will need to move it into the new
/custom folder for it to be picked up by the new version of UberMenu. That is, save your custom.css before upgrading, then move it to the /custom folder.
Also, in the latest version of UberMenu, LIs are now qualified with the .menu-item class in stylesheets in an effort to improve widget and shortcode style compatibility. You will likely need to qualify all of the appropriate LIs in your custom stylesheet with the .menu-item class as well in order to make sure your styles have a high enough specificity to be applied. Generally, a simple find-and-replace from ” li” to ” li.menu-item” will resolve the issue – just be careful not to duplicate the class, and not to replace any LIs that aren’t actually menu items in your style selectors.
You may also need to add the class .megaMenu to any top level ULs in your skins to make sure your styles are specific enough.
Sorry for the inconvenience! But these changes will help improve future compatibility with other content you might like to place in your menu 🙂
UberMenu 2.3 introduces a new search bar style and functionality, and will replace your old UberMenu search short code automatically. If you wish to revert to the old style, please use the short code [ubermenu-search-v1]
Enjoy UberMenu 2.3!
