My next theme



  • @Tanner Well I'll try to figure it out for my theme, I think uploading and using a file is simple what will be a bit more complex in my case is rotating between images (I know how to do it tho).
    Maybe start this this week-end.

    Just some tweaks for mobile and this theme will be ready for release. Anyone else have any suggestions in the meantime before I get to that point?

    I'm thinking of pairing this up with the custom-header plugin so that users can easily change the header image in the ACP.



  • @Tanner, you should totally pair that.

    Then you should code a plugin to allow users to swap between themes.



  • Nice work. Only thing I might want to see is a narrower image up top. Big image looks great but the ability to go with another size (part of the rotation perhaps) would rock.



  • @Steve My plugin only change the background image so the size will be inchanged. But I think you can easily edit the plugin in order to do so.

    Yeah I don't think the edit would be hard.. I'm just thinking for newbie friendly a box topic pixel height might be liked by some.

    Oh dear, now that would be a project and a half.

    I'm just finishing up some last mobile things on the theme and then I will be publishing a 0.0.1 version of it tonight.

    As for shortening the header size, I'll experiment a bit with it to see how it feels, but I agree it would be neat to have a plugin side tot he theme that allows the user to change both the image and the size of the header in the ACP. Not sure how to achieve this though, and the @esiao 's plugin is sufficient to change the image for the time being. I'll leave it to him to edit his plugin to change the header size.

    Anyone else have any more suggestions before I NPM this thing?

    Edit: by the way, here's a preview of it with a shorter header:

    Looks awesome. The grey zebra stripes in the category listing feel a bit to strong for me. How about using a light color that matches the theme ex. #E0F2F3? Just a suggestion 🙂



  • @Tanner, it looks sweet. I'm just curious as to what your plans for adapting sub-categories in 0.5.1 are.



  • I agree with @psychobunny on the stripes.. Maybe use the same color as the header bar background for continuity.
