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…

Parabola 1.5.1 is invisible

Another week, another round of small fixes for Parabola. This time some notices, slashes, alignments and styles get tweaked to bring her closer to perfection.

For specific changes, browse the changelog…

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…

Parabola 1.4.3 packs a few

After a long, deserved and relaxing winter break Parabola returns into the world only to find a changed Wordpress. Things are different now, rules somehow feel heavier… There’s still some time left, but she can’t help but let her thoughts roam wild… What will happen next? Will she be able to adapt?

In the meantime, this is one of the larger updates (not in file size but in the number of items fixed, changed, added or improved), so remember to check the changelog for all the info.

Nirvana is now LIVE and you are a part of it!

Our latest WordPress theme, Nirvana, is now Live and available to download and install directly from WordPress.org. Now there’s absolutely no reason not to check it out.

Follow us after the jump for the celebration and the full changelog since the theme’s brief but intense existence.

Parabola 1.4 holds a grudge

Run! Hide! Save all the women and children. Parabola 1.4 has arrived and she’s got a grudge.

She’s upset because she’s been ignored for so long while the two younger sisters got all the attention. So upset that she’s bringing a major update with lots of changes, some fixes and (hopefully) no new bugs…

Parabola 1.3.4 is back in black

Well not actually in black, more like back from the darkness (of the missing updates). Apparently Parabola spent some time with Mantra in the back room (please no whistling here) and forgot to how to update.

But we brought it back on track and reminded it the importance of public appearances. So here it is, the 1.3.4 update, cleaner of bugs then never before (and yet so dirty…)

Parabola 1.3.3 flies by

The latest Parabola update doesn’t want to stand out and tries to slide by unnoticed.
It is simply here to address a couple of small things, like SSL Google fonts, HTML inputs, CSS3 rgba() on old browsers and others.
It does its job and then moves on, leaving the path clear for then next update.
