I see a new base 64 in the styles.css of the new Encounters theme. I decoded it and it seems clean. But I know I am always a bit scared of any base 64 so please could you tell me why you need to use that base 64?
You can actually remove it as it won’t affect the theme functions. I don’t use it anymore in my themes, and probably on the next update of Encounters, I will remove it. It’s a gradient colour that was represented as an image that was converted to base64 (text).
You’re welcome…as for updates, it’s usually going to be off my social pages of Twitter, Facebook, and Google+ for updates. However, with the new year just around the corner, I am working on a final new update for Styled Themes and one of the things I will be implementing is a special updates blog category for making such announcements. I am also considering setting up a newsletter for email announcements by subscription (free of course). This would be sent to your email inbox.
