Oxwall 1.7 is Out! Steps to Upgrade

Like we mentioned last month, Oxwall has skipped 1.6.1 release and favored Oxwall 1.7 advance minor release instead.

If you are not seeing the update link in your cPanel or admin panel, don’t worry. It normally takes upto 24 hours to show up. Meanwhile, you can download a manual update from the software download page.

What’s new about 1.7?

Oxwall has dropped support for a number of themes in the new release. If you are a big fan of Basic or Graphite theme, you might want to start looking for a new theme or order a custom theme. Below is a list of themes dropped in 1.7.

  • Grunge
  • Basic
  • City
  • Green
  • Pastel
  • Graphite
  • Graphite+
  • Club
