update to 1.1 breaks my Parallax Pro theme

I use the Parallax Pro theme by Generate Press and the home section page is not showing up any more. I have tested and can confirm it is due to the update of this plug-in. I have been waiting for an update/fix but nothing seems to be happening really. But considering that the changelog for v1.1 sais: "Fixed the issue Break other plugins wp-query" I imagine this is plug-in is not going to get better, only worse fixing issue and creating a new one? Really hope to get an answer soon, does anyone know of a suitable alternative for this plug-in?


The taxonomy use is the same in post, so if i add a new tax to post is added to to pages taxonomy. It's suppouse to be 2 differents things each post_type (post, page or CP) must have its own taxonomy.

Works perfectly

This plugin overcomes the limitation of pages which now can be used the same way as posts relating them to categories and tags. It should be part of the WordPress core as you can modify the look of pages far more than you can posts. Works perfectly in WP version 4.9.6 A big thank you to the developer!
