This new release fixes some plugin compatibility problems ( Event Calendar for example ) reported in the forums, mostly related to the image smart load feature, introduced in v3.2.0.
It also adds back the comments section to the customizer panel, which had been accidentally removed in v3.2.0.
Version 3.2.1 is safe for child theme developers.
Hueman Addons plugin
In v3.2.1, we’ve introduced a non intrusive notification in the admin panel, to recommend the Hueman Addons plugin. This plugin has been designed and developed by us for the Hueman theme.
As per the theme developer guidelines on WordPress.org, themes must include a limited range of features, mostly related to design and style. Anything that adds specific content is considered as plugin territory and must therefore be included accordingly, in a separate plugin.
The Hueman Addons adds the following features :
- a lightweight Share Bar to your single posts allowing your visitors to share your content on Facebook, Twitter, Google, Pinterest or LinkedIn with a simple click.
- Useful shortcodes to easily add columns, dropcaps and other nice styling to your post content.
Those features are documented here:
Major feature introduction coming for Hueman Addons
We’re currently working on a major feature introduction to this plugin in the coming weeks. I don’t want to make some kind of teaser here, but be prepared for a breakthrough in terms of customizations possibilities :).
More details shortly!
Header template changes
The header template has been simplified. It now retrieve a template for the
<header> tag located in
The topbar block has also been isolated into a new template located in
The purpose of those changes is to have more flexibility to override the default header elements from a child theme or from a plugin.

Keep up the great work! Really enjoy your theme.
Thanks for the feedback !
If we in the child theme, the header.php file, because it had to add code, take the header.php file?
Hi, I’m not sure to understand your message. A good practice is to try to keep the child theme overriden templates as up to date as possible with the parent theme.
I’ve updated the file header.php, before you have your answer, thank you
I maintain my child theme updated, I wanted to just confirmation that I had to update header.php.
I do not speak English, I use translator to understand, I was afraid to be misunderstood.
