Simplish version 2.1.10

Posted by – September 4, 2009

Simplish v2.1.10 makes one change to the styling for pre elements, removing the outline border box.

This release simply serves to get the very-slightly-different code we’ve run since the 2.1.9 release out into daylight.

It has had the benefit of production use and testing up to the latest WordPress svn tip (inclusive of the current release, 2.8.4, of course).

Simplish version 2.1.9

Posted by – May 26, 2009

Simplish 2.1.9 is available, bringing just a few minor updates along on the roughly-monthly schedule:

Download Simplish version 2.1.9 here, or see it soon in the WordPress themes directory.

Deleting your existing Simplish install directory and replacing it wholesale, rather than overwriting it, will help prevent any possible template conflicts resulting from the file rename.

Simplish version 2.1.8

Posted by – April 19, 2009

A minor update that adds a Swedish, Sweden (sv_SE) localization, adds a few missed strings for translation, and makes more appropriate use of en dash (“–”) rather than the minus (“-”) character.

  • Add sv_SE localization files for Swedish. Thanks Clement Durand.
  • Update el localization files for Greek. Thanks Demetris at op111.net.
  • Switch most page-visible minus literals to &ndash; entities. Thanks Demetris at op111. (For compatibility, the minus convention is maintained in <title> elements.)

Simplish version 2.1.6

Posted by – February 20, 2009

The 2.1.6 release of Simplish contains two fixes for problems discovered in version 2.1.5:

  • Default sidebar Pages menu now honors admin panel page Order settings
  • Footer text is once again properly aligned on the vertical

Note that any Simplish ≥ 2.1.5 is compatible only with WordPress versions ≥ 2.7.

Simplish version 2.1.5

Posted by – February 5, 2009

Simplish 2.1.5 spruces up support for WordPress version 2.7 features, and is only compatible with WordPress versions ≥ 2.7. The changes are focused on complete support for features, removing compatibility code for older WordPress versions, and fixing a few bugs.

  • Auto-generated post classes (and “sticky” post support): Use post_class() everywhere but the page template
  • Fix a dangling </a> that slipped into the 2.1.4 release (validation)
  • Fix excess vertical spacing in content area ol / ul li elements (thanks Demetris @ op111.net)
  • Eliminate some redundant or over-specified CSS rules for ol / ul li elements
  • Switch to new table styling, derived from Gesso, and eliminate code adopted from Blueprint. Remove Blueprint license file and NOTICE note.
  • Use new wp_logout_url() in sidebar logout link
  • Replace manual includes with new get_search_form()
  • Remove the ocomments.php file, and much compatibility code from functions.php (removes support for wp < 2.7)
  • Replace wp_list_pages() calls with new wp_page_menu() to allow in-function “Home” link

Simplish version 2.1.4

Posted by – December 12, 2008

Simplish 2.1.4 is an update to support WordPress 2.7, including the new threaded comments feature.

  • Support WordPress 2.7′s threaded comments.1
  • Add compatibility comments template for WordPress ≤ 2.6.5.
  • Link to comments goes to heading of comments list (instead of to first comment in list).
  • Fix silly feed:// typo in (default) sidebar syndication links (thanks eighty4.se).
  • Fix “comments” id and class to not have same name (introduce “commentslist”).
  • Use smaller 32×32 gravatar for comment author.

1 – Threaded comment support has not yet been added to WordPress-mu, the software this blog and the Simplish Demo run atop. Until it is, you can check out Simplish’s rendition of threaded comments at a test site.

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.

Simplish version 2.1.2

Posted by – October 20, 2008

This release contains fixes for some minor bugs, and switches to relative (em) font sizing.

  • Replace deprecated get_settings() call with bloginfo().
  • Improve and simplify hCards for authors, commenters, and the theme footer link, removing mis-used n class (thanks Martin McEvoy @ weborganics.co.uk).
  • Further define and improve Windows fall-back fonts in CSS (thanks Demetris @ op111.net).
  • Define fonts with relative (em) rather than absolute (px) sizes, allowing resizing in IE6 (thanks op111.net).
  • Specify body element background-color (thanks op111.net).
  • Use a more humane representation of the date in day archive page h1 element (no leading zero).

Simplish version 2.1.1

Posted by – September 22, 2008

We focused on cleaner, more orderly CSS and some code factoring in this release. Visual changes are minor, but post metadata display is tighter, while line heights have been widened ever-so-slightly for easier readability in long text passages.

  • Fix spacing below Tag Cloud sidebar widget above certain elements (thanks op111.net).
  • Rename hCard generator functions more rationally.
  • Uncompress line heights.
  • Remove explicit permalink from entry meta display; entry title now serves uniformly.
  • Remove the Meta label from entry meta section; unnecessary.
  • Add per-comment permalink on comment date.
  • Style more basic elements: table and dl styles improved/added (adopted bits of Blueprint CSS).
  • Removed remaining uses of visual alignright/alignleft convenience classes in favor of more-semantic class names in the template markup.
  • Add entry meta display to image attachment template.
  • Improve fall-back fonts in CSS (thanks op111.net).
  • Split entry title/byline and meta into include files that produce the main hAtom microformatting.
