What’s next for Flothemes

Effective September 20th 2023, the Flothemes store is closed and Flothemes products is no longer available for purchase. We will no longer be releasing new themes and features for Flothemes products.

It is important to note that your existing Flothemes website will not be impacted. You can continue to use and update your site as usual. If you have an active Flothemes subscription, you will not be charged for renewal, and you will continue to receive access to the current product.

FAQ

Can I get a refund?

Yes. If you recently made a purchase, your subscription just renewed, or you simply haven’t built your Flothemes website — reach out to our team at info@flothemes.com and we will issue you a refund.

What changes are taking place today?

Nothing. Your site will continue to run. You can continue to edit your site, FlexBlocks included.

What happens after 30th September 2024?

Your site will continue to run, and you will still be able to create and build your own FlexBlocks and edit any existing FlexBlocks. This is applicable for all one-time themes (Pronto, Flexthemes, and Classic themes) and for all Pronto all-in-one subscriptions.

After September 30th 2024, you will no longer be able to retrieve predefined FlexBlocks templates. If you intend to use any predefined block templates, Stylekits or page templates from the FlexBlock library, you should export them as JSON so you have them as a backup to use in the future. Please reach out to our team at info@flothemes.com if you need any assistance with this.

Will my website break if there are any WordPress updates?

We recommend Flothemes users to continue using the below recommended WordPress and PHP versions:
– Pronto All-in-One or the Pronto theme: PHP version 8.2, WordPress 6.2.2.
– Flextheme: PHP version 7.4 – 8.0, WordPress 6.2.2.

If you do update your WordPress version, while we cannot guarantee this, your site will likely continue to work just fine. Historically, minor updates have not known to break anything on our themes, and only major version upgrades might have an impact. For reference, here are the historical timeline for major version upgrade for WordPress:
WordPress 3 → 4: 2014
WordPress 4 → 5: 2018
WordPress 5 → 6: 2022
While we do not know for certain, the next major upgrade should be 2026 or beyond. Source
