WordPress and theme options part II – the fracture

As you might know by now, themes in the official repository are no longer allowed to implement a theme options page. All new themes were required since early this year to implement support for the Customizer and some weeks ago this rule became mandatory for themes already published in the repository as well.

We’ve given this a great deal of thought and we decided not to transfer theme options to the Customizer interface. We built our themes settings to fit and work in a certain way and we feel the Customizer structure just isn’t right for them.

To be able to continue providing theme updates…

Nirvana 1.1.3 is all patched up

We don’t often send our themes to the doctor, but when we do we make sure they return all patched up. This is true for Nirvana 1.1.3 which returns so full of fixes and patches that one must wonder how it managed to function at all in the first place.

Well, the secret is that there’s so much functionality in Nirvana (and our other themes) that there’s bound to be something functional even when there’s so much that is buggy…

The good news is that Nirvana is now less buggy and you can enjoy the fixes listed in the changelog…

Nirvana 1.1.2 notices some notices

Nirvana isn’t one not to notice, especially important changes as Wordpress 4.3 (which decided some code is no longer future-proof and should be deprecated).

To keep up with developments, the update to make some notices go away and leave them to be noticed only by those who should make the noticing is here. Plus notice the changelog…

Nirvana 1.1(.1) learns how to shop

Nirvana has entered the world of e-commerce and it’s getting its first taste of a nice haggle. It now officially supports the WooCommerce plugin so you’re free to go and take it our for a barter.

This version also adds WPML / Polylang support for the presentation page’s custom content so now everything is 100% translation ready.

Nirvana 1.0.6 comes in a can

Version 1.0.6 of Nirvana is a pretty big update that brings quite a lot of improvements, fixes and general changes to our theme.

Find out after the jump what these changes are.

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 1.0.3 (re)embraces Google fonts

It is here! The fix that fixes all the previous fixes. After a (somewhat) long shaken up period, Nirvana 1.0.3 finally brings back the beloved Google fonts. And hopefully this time for good.

So you’d better get busy in setting up your very own Google fonts, hugging and kissing and loving them, for you may never know how long will pass before they’re gone again…

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…
