MD4.9.4 CSS Revamp

Part of the MD4.9.4 update is a revamp to the entire MD CSS system. Now as you enable/disable features, the main style.css file will be regenerated with only the styles needed. This will result in saving your site hundreds of lines of unused CSS which is a huge win!

Marketers Delight and WooCommerce integration

MD4.9.4 and WooCommerce

The direct integration of WooCommerce coming into MD4.9.4 will be such a great starter framework for many of you designing your own stores. MD snaps all of WooCommerce’s templates into its own design system, meaning you can take advantage of custom sidebars, custom layout + design options, and even some bonus features to make your Store truly ready out of the box.

Read my Twitter thread (and be sure to follow me) for more screenshots, MD4.9.4 release date coming soon.

WordPress Site Health

This morning I updated the MD site to WordPress 5.2, which added the new Site Health feature.

I wrote a review of my experience using it improve the MD website which you will find helpful for your own optimizations here:
