Pile Changelog

Version 2.5.1

Mar 03, 2021


This minor update will smooth some things under the hood, so your theme will be compatible with the next WordPress release (5.7).

Enjoy it and keep being awesome 💪

Version 2.5.0

Jun 02, 2020


We hope that everything is going well in your part of the World.

Here's an update for the Pile theme, because there's always room for improvement, right? 🙂

The Disable Ajax on This Page option didn't work well, so if you have used WPForms to create a contact form on your site, the form was not displayed correctly. Now all you have to do is disabling Ajax on the Contact page (see here how). 

If you have used the Infinite Scroll option for the projects on the homepage, there was a glitch and besides projects, some blog posts were displayed, too. That's not a problem anymore. 

We made sure that everything works well on WordPress 5.4.1 and WooCommece 4.1.0

Stay safe! 🤗

Version 2.4.0

Oct 16, 2019


We hope you had a formidable and unforgettable summer! 😀

Autumn is the time of cleaning and preparing for the cold season. This is what we’ve done with this update — we fixed different issues, added enhancements and empowered the theme, so both you as the site administrator and your site visitors will have an even greater experience.


  • Now you can decide what projects to be displayed in grid layout when using the “Portfolio Archive” template.
  • We removed the misleading information about Starter Content from Pixelgrade Dashboard and now you can import demo data from Customizer.


  • Improved the style of the content on Hero Area in the mobile view.
  • Decreased wrapper side spacing to increase images size.
  • Increased Social icons size for better readability.
  • Added Dark Overlay when Cart Drawer is open.


  • Project title used to overlap when it was longer, this is not happening anymore.

Pile is now compatible with the latest WordPress version (5.2.3) and the latest WooCommerce version 3.7.1.

Enjoy the fall seasons and stay awesome! 🤗

Version 2.3.2

Mar 08, 2019

With this update, we put emphasis on the way your ideas and products are presented, so that your digital experiences will shine even brighter. ✨

Pile is now compatible with WordPress 5.1. The Gutenberg editor is not supported yet, but you can still use the Classic Editor with no problem. By the way, to see how we approach updates at Pixelgrade, check this out.

Pile is also compatible now with WooCommerce 3.5.5, no more warnings about outdated templates.

Sub-menus now stand out, so that everyone will know that there is even more content than it seems at first.


  • Fixed an issue where grouped products were not styled properly.
  • Fixed a bug where, by using the JetPack Infinite Scroll feature on the Shop, products would have a “See more” tag, instead of their price.
  • Fixed a bug with the header being transparent under some circumstances.
  • Fixed an issue where sub-menu items wouldn’t be accessible by using a touchscreen laptop.

Enjoy, the spring is here! 🌻

Version 2.3.1

Oct 03, 2018

The evil always comes from details, they say. 

This is a small update, but it comes with some important fixes. First, we ensured compatibility with WordPress 4.9.8 and fixed some small bugs:

  • the browser back button was not working sometimes
  • the parallax effect was not working properly on the shop page when the products were displayed via Infinite Scroll
  • the product image was not changing for variable products

Enjoy it! 🤗

Version 2.3.0

Aug 29, 2018

A brand new way of changing the colors of your WordPress site has landed in Customify. We made a few tweaks to make your experience better.

Version 2.2.6

May 08, 2018

We always do our best to keep up with different changes that frequently occur. It's why this update makes Pile fully compatible with WooCommerce 3.3.x. Also, the new shortcodes from WooCommerce work perfectly now.

Wo do this because we care. 

Enjoy! 🤗

Version 2.2.5

Mar 02, 2018

This hotfix addresses a wired bug that caused Customizer to refresh under some circumstances. Everything’s fine now.

Btw, if Cinderella’s shoe fit perfectly, then why did it fall off? 🤔

Stay awesome!

Version 2.2.4

Feb 26, 2018

The long-expected update is here! 🎉

We can imagine how annoying it was to experience troubles when trying to use the Portfolio Archive options from Customizer and we’re sorry about that. The bug has been fixed and it works flawlessly now. 

Another small glitch with the logo not inverting on mobile has been fixed, too. 

While we ensured that everything works fine with WooCommerce 3.3.x, we also decided to put back the returning customer form on Checkout Page. 

Enjoy and be happy! 🤗

We are confident this update will make for an overall better experience with Pile, both for you and for your visitors. If you think we've missed something, do let us know. We are here to help.

For Pile 2 we’ve taken our experience and best ideas to reinvent a whole new and powerful portfolio tool. We’ve made it!

  • A new set of options for Portfolio Archive Grid

*Notes on updating from an older version

From time to time, to move forward, we must break away from the past. Most of the things will automatically migrate to the newest version, but there are some changes worth taking into consideration: different typography, especially for the Hero Area, projects navigation with only the Next button and a new design layout for the blog.

We strongly recommend you to do a backup before this update! It’s good to be safe than sorry.

Version 1.4.0

  • Added WordPress 4.3 compatibility
