Market Press with Upfront vs. legacy themes


I’m cleaning up my themes and updating client sites. Is Market Press integrated into Upfront or should I still be offering the MarketPress themes (FrameMarket, GridMarket, Product, etc.)?

Also, are the legacy themes Nelo, Dixi, Triden, Business Portfolio, Business Feature, Business Services, Sleekphoto, etc. still supported and for how long?

I have clients that like and are using these themes. Is it time to find them another theme? Not everyone wants Upfront for everything (although a great theme!)

    Hello Chuck S.

    I hope you’re well today and thank you for your question!

    The legacy themes are no longer developed and supported and they are not even available from our site any more. I’d say that some of them will still work reasonably well for some time but there’s no backward compatibility maintained with MarketPress at all and also those themes are not updated to match all the changes made to WordPress core.

    I think the choice would be either Upfront or 3rd-party themes, unless particular site is still working fine – then you could stick to legacy themes until an update (of any of the plugins or of WP core) causes some issues. The “switch” then however would be “a must”.

    Best regards,
