[WordPress Canada]Malcolm Updated v1.2.0

The Malcolm child theme has been updated to version 1.2.0. This is the fourth of our child themes to receive an update since the release of Genesis 2.1.0.

The changes in this update are:

  • As of Genesis 2.1, the Primary Navigation Extras options have been removed for new installs while upgrades of current installs to 2.1 have retained the option. This is actually a good thing. Under the old method you were limited to adding a Twitter or RSS link only. The new method is to add a custom link to the menu then add a CSS Class of right. Of course this means you can now add any link you want, you aren’t limited to just Twitter or your RSS feed. I have replaced Dashicons with Genericons for primary nav custom links. The reason for that is Genericons offer a much larger selection of social icon fonts. Dashicon support remains in other areas of the theme. Refer to the theme docs for details.
  • Genesis 2.1 now includes built-in support for adding a widget area after a post on single post pages by adding just one line of code … add_theme_support( 'genesis-after-entry-widget-area' ); Therefore, I have removed the existing method of adding that particular widget area in favour of the new method.
  • I have renamed the Before Post Block widget area Before Entry for consistency.
  • Misc style tweaks.

As usual further info including demo and download links can be found on the official theme page.

[WordPress Canada]Winfield Updated v3.3.0

The Winfield child theme has been updated to version 3.3.0. This is the third of our child themes to receive an update since the release of Genesis 2.1.0.

The changes in this update are the same as BlogNews and ElevenHundred:

  • As of Genesis 2.1, the Primary Navigation Extras options have been removed for new installs while upgrades of current installs to 2.1 have retained the option. This is actually a good thing. Under the old method you were limited to adding a Twitter or RSS link only. The new method is to add a custom link to the menu then add a CSS Class of right. Of course this means you can now add any link you want, you aren’t limited to just Twitter or your RSS feed. To that end, I have removed the images for Twitter and RSS and have replaced them with icon fonts from Genericons. I have also included icon fonts for several other social sites such as Facebook, Instagram and Pinterest to name just a few. Refer to the theme docs for details.
  • Genesis 2.1 now includes built-in support for adding a widget area after a post on single post pages by adding just one line of code … add_theme_support( 'genesis-after-entry-widget-area' ); Therefore, I have removed the existing method of adding that particular widget area in favour of the new method.
  • I have removed all REMS from the CSS in keeping with the new Genesis standards.

As usual further info including demo and download links can be found on the official theme page.

[WordPress Canada]BlogNews Updated v4.5.0

The BlogNews child theme has been updated to version 4.5.0. This is a minor release which addresses a few issues:

  • As of Genesis 2.1, the Primary Navigation Extras options have been removed for new installs while upgrades of current installs to 2.1 have retained the option. This is actually a good thing. Under the old method you were limited to adding a Twitter or RSS link only. The new method is to add a custom link to the menu then add a CSS Class of right.

BlogNews is the first of our child themes to be updated following the release of Genesis 2.1.0. Updates to the other child themes will be slowly rolled out as time allows.

[WordPress Canada]Finley is on GitHub

Finley is the Genesis child theme I built for myself for use on this very website. Since I am no longer using it I decided to throw it up on GitHub for anyone who might be interested.

Please note that this is not an “official” release. It doesn’t come with a bunch of fancy widget areas or support for multiple plugins. There is no documentation or tutorials. There isn’t even an online demo. It’s a fairly basic and straightforward theme.

I simply thought why not put it up on GitHub rather than throw it out?

If you want to check it out head on over here to download it.

[WordPress Canada]WPCanada Releases Gigawatt Theme

WPCanada is pleased to announce the release of the Gigawatt 1.0 child theme. This is a child theme of the Genesis framework and thus requires Genesis in order for it to function.

Following the release of Megawatt a couple of weeks ago I received a lot of email from folks asking how to add a widget area to the header. One of the features of Megawatt saw the removal of the header widget area to facilitate a full width responsive header image. The site header was also rebuilt.

But the emails got me thinking. I concluded that perhaps the full width header image was more suited for a personal blog rather than a news/magazine type of site which Megawatt was designed for.

I could have released this new theme as a new version of Megawatt but having Megawatt 1 and 2 or Megawatt A and B would probably cause a lot of confusion. So I decided to release this theme as Gigawatt.

In addition to adding back the header widget area, Gigawatt includes the option of using a custom logo via the built-in WordPress media library upload. No messing with the functions.php file to add a header image.

Other notable differences between Gigawatt and Megawatt: Gigawatt uses the newer style of responsive menus that you also see in both Malcolm and Marcus while Megawatt uses the older style seen in BlogNews, ElevenHundred and Winfield. Megawatt integrates Dashicons into .entry-meta, comment form and Twitter / RSS links in the primary navigation as does Gigawatt but Gigawatt takes it further by integrating Dashicons into the responsive menus as well. Gigawatt also comes with 6 colour schemes.

Head over to the official theme page for more details, theme demo and download.
