Simplish version 2.1.3

Posted by – November 27, 2008

Another little gift for the holiday: Here’s a new production edition of Simplish. This is the one you should be using on your real site, you know, where you don’t run pre-release software like Simplish 2.1.4RC, or WordPress 2.7-beta…

Version 2.1.3 is a tiny update that contains just one change: a contributed header background graphic (thanks to both Anonymous and Demetris) that’s 10x smaller than the original, down from ~2.7 Kilobytes to a super-slender 256 Bytes.

In other words, this update is definitely not a big deal. But it does trim the theme’s only image down to a size smaller than… most of your blog posts, and might help (a very little bit) with bandwidth or page load times if you’re using Simplish on a very-busy site.

Download Simplish version 2.1.3 here, or see it soon in the WordPress themes directory.

    Excellent theme. Thanks for keeping the layout simple.

    (this is one of the themes that reads well on the iPod touch… Once again, thanks for the excellent theme)

    I’m a fan of ‘grouping posts’ by date, so for your consideration, which I do like this (main index template):

    <div id="article-" class="hentry">
    <?php if ($new_post_time $curr_post_time) { ?>

    I use an extra H2 class. Additionally, hentryhead contains a condition to properly format the time for entries (no need to show date) when at WP’s “homepage” ( is_home()) and use full dates+times in other cases (see my website and click on a tag.).

    (I think WP ate my code there… where do I send this to by e-mail?)

    @Arthur: you can mail patches to josh@utopian.net — while I have pretty code, pre, and tt styles, I can’t keep the php code from being munged out.

    Mail ‘em over and I’ll take a look.
