The original SmartTheme was released over a year ago at the time this article was written. In order to provide a seamless way to use OptimizePress email marketing integrations as well as providing updates for this theme, we tied the updates license and integrations into the OptimizePress 2 plugin.
In order for us to provide a version of the SmartTheme to use with OptimizePress 3 in the same way, the only option we had from a development standpoint was to essentially clone the theme and instead, link the licensing and integrations with the new OP3 Dashboard plugin.
Also, at the time OP3 was first released, the features other than email integrations and the updates license, that are included in the original and the new SmartTheme V3 are identical.
We may eventually add new features specifically for the newer SmartTheme V3 and will update this article at that time.
If you have any other questions please reach out to our team and we’ll be happy to help.
