Tweak – Chap slides post type is now registered by a bundled plugin to allow managing chap_slide post type even after switching the theme. It’s recommended to install that plugin, but fallback code remains in the theme until 30 November 2019, after which the slides will still show up, but there won’t be a way to edit them without the plugin. This is for WordPress theme requirements compliance.
