Theme Update: WhosWho

Posted on October 11, 2008 by in Theme Changes/Bug Fixes | 17 comments

I have added several features to Who’sWho, as well as removed a few, from the custom theme options page. First off I have removed the control over the stylesheet (font color, size, family, etc). My reason for this is that is requires PHP to have safe mode turned off, which many shared hosts don’t like. I also felt that the control it gave you wasn’t enough to actually warent the trouble. Anyone looking to change these basic colors will have to edit the stylesheet to make other things match anyway. Now, on to the additions.

1. Categories dropdown menu.

I have added dropdown capability to the categories navigation bar. I have always felt that a dropdown menu would fit well with this theme, so here you go!

2. Optional Blog-Style Post Layout

I have added an option in the custom themes options menu to switch from the news/cms style post layout to a more traditional blog layout. This is handeled through an easy-to-use dropdown menu, and you can switch back and forth at any time.

Placing the theme in “blog style” will remove all of the non-traditional elements on the homepage, as well as remove the post character limit on the category and index pages.

3. Optional Sidebar Banners

I have added the option to remove the 125x125px sidebar banners. You can simply choose to remove them from within the theme’s options page.

4. Optional “Featured Area”

If you would like to remove the featured area on the homepage, including the random posts, rss, and feedburner links, you can do so from the theme’s option page.

5. Automatic Thumbnail Re-sizer/Cropper

I have added automatic thumbnail resizing to the theme. You no longer need to resize your images, and you no longer need to create separate custom fields/images for the random articles/featured articles thumbnails. Only one custom field is required.

6. Remove Links By ID

I have added the ability to remove links from the category and page navigation bars from within the theme options. Just type in the category/page’s ID to make it disappear.

7. Thumbnail Display Improvement

I have changed the way that thumbnails are nested within the next. Now when you do not have a thumbnail added to your post no blank square will appear. Furthermore, your text will stretch accross the div accordingly.

8. Thumbnail Additions

Thumbnails have been added to the category boxes on the homepage.

  1. Your one sexy bitch =)

    Good work man. Really really good work. Im loving how you added the blog layout to =)

  2. Quick question, how would i remove the blue border around images? I cant find it in the css.

  3. God im so sorry for the comments, but with the categories?

    Is there a way to make it pop out with (category > sub cat > subsub cat).

    Is that possible?

  4. Sorry about this. But just wanted to say.

    Hiding the share button doesn’t work on my side.

  5. Oops, I setup the share button incorrectly. It has been fixed (try redownloading the theme). You will also notice I have redesigned the options page, it was getting pretty cluttered!

    As for extending the dropdown menu to three or four tiers, I will look into this.

    • I was working on a mac and my Dynamic Content Manager was working perfect. I went to my PC to do some more work it and the DCG’s alignment is way off the page to the right. What do I need to do to fix this. Thanks.

  6. I see you’ve fixed it then good stuff, and yes the options page, looks cleaner.

    About the 3 or 4 tiers, drop a comment here and let me know if you got it sorted.

    Just on a side note… would you install “subscribe to comments” on this blog? Just makes things easier for people coming back to check out replies left on a post…

  7. I’m liking these improvements. Thanks!

  8. Thanks for update looks perfect and welldone mate.

  9. Your work is awsome dude…but how do i get better quallity of my thumbnails..they are a little to pixelized..:)

  10. You need to make sure your thumbnails are large enough. If they are too small they will be expanded to fit, and thus be pixelated.

  11. Awesome.

    Who’s Who is my fave so this improvement comes as a great news for me.

  12. Nice design! Can you please show how multiple images will look in a blog post?

    I will have about 5 images per post.

  13. Hi,

  14. Love thiese themes!!!

    But can you tell me why Whos Who themes don’t show the comments ? instead of showing comments it shows this in grey :

    <img border=”0″ style=”padding:1px; float:left; margin:0px 10px 5px 0px; border:1px solid #ccc;” alt=”avatar” src=”

    Thanks man !

    Now waiting for the new stuff I’m certain you’re working on !!
