Release note for Hueman Pro v1.0.20 and Hueman free v3.3.21 26

Dear Hueman themes users,

This new release fixes various bugs reported in the support forum. It is safe for child theme users.

A new option has been added in the customizer > advanced > performances > Mobile device detection.

This setting will be useful for those who are using a cache plugin and have enabled the sticky sidebars on mobile devices. It fixes in particular the huajax issue reported several times.


Font Customizr ( Pro ) : we have fixed an intermittent bug occuring sometimes when saving your custom font settings in the customizer.


This version has been successfully tested with the latest WordPress version : v4.8.2.

I hope you’ll enjoy it 🙂

    Last update broken lightbox working with Next Gen gallery. Lightbox not opened , but clicked picture displayed on bottom of the site , i.e. , below footer

      Problem partly resolved and it was Responsive lightbox plugin. Gallery is working , but lightbox deleted… Any ideas for alternative ?

      • Reply

        Some correction. Problem was on gallery style , which named Fancybox . By all means , could be better if you offer ( article How to install and setup the Hueman theme demo content ) Hueman users more Lightboxes , than Responsive lightbox. Sure , on mentioned article You offer to use Swipebox style , but I don’t test this for this probleme solving

    Hey Nicolas, thank you for your dedication of providing this amazing free theme for years.
    By the way, is there any plan to add breadcrumb feature someday?…

      Your welcome, thanks for your appreciation.
      The breadcrumb is not scheduled yet, but this is currently missing I agree.
      I’ll publish a note when available in the theme.

    Great job on this latest release!
    One item that I’d like to see addressed in a future release concerns Published/Updated dates that display on post pages. I typically schedule my posts to publish at a later date. Sometimes, between the time I schedule a post and the time it publishes, I will make edits to it. This will cause the post to have a last updated date that is earlier than the actual publish date once it does publish. I currently have an example on If there is a way to not display the Updated date if it is earlier than the published date, or a way to disable Updated date from displaying altogether, that would be useful.

      Hi, thank you very much for reporting this case. Really interesting. This also raises the question of how WordPress handles the update / published dates in a scheduling scenario like yours.
      There’s currently no way to control the visibility of the dates, and more globally of the post metas in Hueman. I feel that this is missing. That’s why this improvement has been scheduled for the next version of the theme.

    By the way, I would like to know if there if a possibility to display the featured image also on the post, as it seems to just appear on the homepage and the list of posts but not on the post itself (above the title, for example). That would have been a great thing to integrate a setting in the next update of the theme Hueman.

    Thank you very much and congrats again on the wonderful work.

      We have done this type of implementation in the Hueman Pro theme, like on this post for example, where the featured image is used as full width background.
      There is no scheduled dev yet to implement it in a more simple way in the free theme. But that could be introduced in the future. For example like we do in the Customizr free theme on this post.

    Hi Nicolas,

    I encountered a serious problem for the past two days. When updating some plugins with Hueman theme activated, it seems there is a slightly problem but that stop all my website and give me a “ERROR 500 HTTP” message instead. I tried with others themes it didn’t happened and the upgrading of the plugins could happen normally.
    To solve the problem I had to restore my Database and FTP to an anterior date. Now I am too afraid of touching any plugin upgrade.

    Any similar feedback regarding that issue?

    Thank you,

    Best regards,

      Hi Hugo,
      Thank you very much for this feedback 🙂
      Can you try to activate a default theme like Twenty Seventeen, remove the Hueman theme, then re-install it and see if you have the same issue ?
