I've read the theme update post, but couldn't find any info on the compatibility update for the Meola theme. I'm still at WP 4.9.9 at the moment.
Are you working on the update for Meola (or other older themes), or should we just update WP? Are there any known issues with WP 5 or Gutenberg with an un-updated theme?
we're working on it and will release the updates for the older themes as soon as possible.
Thanks for the response. I'll wait for the updated theme.
Do you happen to know if something will definitely break if I go ahead and update WP, but still use the classic editor?
no, we're not aware of any problems using WordPress 5 and the Classic Editor plugin.
