Zombie Apocalypse requiem V and update 2.0 with extra gore

The Zombie Apocalypse is here! For the fifth year in a row… well not the actual apocalypse but your eponymous beloved, friendly, next door all bloody neighbour Wordpress theme.

Lost for a couple of days into the undead abyss of not-updated themes, we’ve put all coffee aside for a week and worked on bringing it back from the other side. This is version 2.0 of your favorite B-movie styled theme and a few things have changed but they’re all for the best…

Parabola 1.5 is the smart one

Parabola learned from experience to circumvent her younger sisters’ critical mistakes and brings you only the desert in this round of themes updates.

Among the most important additions are support for WPML and Polylang multilingualism in custom content areas and her newly achieved skills in the commerce sector with the inclusion of the WooCommerce compatibility (child theme) code and styling. For everything else…

Tempera 1.3(.1) becomes multilingual

Tempera decided to spend her entire vacation going to summer school. The most important feature she brought back is support for WPML and Polylang multilingualism. You will now find all of Tempera’s custom text fields in Polylang’s translations section.

The second important change is the inclusion of the WooCommerce compatibility child theme code and styling. This should improve handling WooCommerce content, making the use of the separate child theme unnecessary. For the rest of the changes see the changelog…

Mantra 2.4 celebrates 4 years of existence

It’s a time for joy and celebration, not just because a new Mantra update is here to correct and improve some long outstanding issues but also because this month, 4 years ago, our little Mantra opened its digital eyes and met with the Wordpress repository for the very first time. And boy what I ride it has been since…

Mantra is now 4 years old and although her little sisters are starting to surpass her, she’s still older, wiser and still has a few issues up her sleeves.

One of the most important changes in the latest update is the removal of shortcodes. The keep the [mantra] or [cryout] shortcodes working on your site, we’ve moved this functionality to a separate plugin…

Where is WordPress heading? To have or not have theme options…

Wordpress’ Theme Review Team seems to always be involved in a lot of decision making. That’s good, decisions have to be made and a direction needs to be set and maintained.

However lately the decisions seem to be taken hastily, without analysing all the effects (and maybe consequences) they have. We’ve had scuffles with Wordpress before, but we’ve moved on, adapted, clarified or changed things. But this new decision directly affects themes – meaning it touches us the most.

Tempera 1.2.7 wakes up from hibernation

It’s been a long three months of freezing winter (with massive amounts of snow in places), but Tempera is now well rested and ready to return to fighting with the higher forces.

During this first round the fight consists of mostly localization and styling fixes, with a touch of Google fonts, new translations and some IE quirks. The pièce de résistance is, of course…

Nirvana 1.0.5 begins to thaw

No, you didn’t wet your WordPress. The moist you’re feeling in the front end of your site is normal and it’s coming straight from your favorite theme: Nirvana.

Follow us after the jump into uncharted waters in search of this version’s changelog.

Nirvana 1.0.4 gets an A in math

Math – the cause of most horrific disasters in history… well not quite, but math is indeed the culprit for Nirvana’s last release’s failing settings page. Fortunately Nirvana 1.0.4 took a quick course in advanced mathematics and learned that the best solution to avoid any issues is to consider negative fractions as equal to zero (if that makes sense).

So here she is, proud to show off her best grade in math – A (or 10, or 5… depending on what region of the world you’re in)

Nirvana 1.0.2 woke up with a hangover

The latest version of our Nirvana WordPress theme gets here right after the New Year and just in time to fix the nasty bug that broke the theme on some servers.

Join us after the jump to find out exactly what has happened in the last few hours leading up to this version’s release.

Nirvana 1.0.1 learns to fight

No more mister nice guy (uhm… girl) Nirvana. In this new update she finally learned to fight (against poorly written plugins that load their code all over the dashboard and break key functionality).

But despite posing as a bad girl, Nirvana 1.0.1 also brings a lot of head-relaxing fixes (among which the long awaited Google fonts functionality). For everything else…
