Thesis was updated to version 1.8.5 following the release of WordPress 3.4. In addition, Chris Pearson gave us an update on the status of Thesis 2.0.
What’s new in Thesis 1.8.5
Here are some of the updates in Thesis 1.8.5:
- Fixed theme preview in WordPress 3.4 for normal and multisite installations
- Improved multisite post thumbnail handling on a wider variety of server setups
- Resolved layout.css error message in multisite that appeared (wrongly) due to certain user permissions
- Updated the author microformat in post bylines so it passes the Google Rich Snippet Tool without any warnings
- Basic HTML tags are now allowed inside widget titles, so you have more presentational flexibility in those areas
- In previous versions, if you added a nav menu via a widget, it would display horizontally like the default nav menu. Now, menus added via widgets will display just like a normal vertical list of links, so you won’t have to waste time undoing undesirable styles.
- WordPress improved image captioning in version 3.4, and this affected the way Thesis displayed captions. In previous versions, we used a shortcode hack to get them to display properly, but thanks to WordPress 3.4, we no longer need that shortcode.
More News on Thesis 2.0
The most important news was that Chris Pearson has provided us with an August release date for Thesis 2.0! So we’re very excited about this and really looking forward to it.
