    Good news for both themes

    Finally getting to see it all come together

    If seeing is believing, then I more than believe that I struggle at building themes perfectly in the initial coding aspect. Last week, I finally finished coding the biggest part of Giornalismo and decided to give it a bit of test run. Sure, not all of the features I’m looking to run with the theme…

    And it goes on and on and on

    So my suspicions with how easy it would be to fix the errors found in Nuovo in the theme review turned out to be correct. The biggest issue, the errors being kicked back when no options were saved in the theme options, wasn’t that hard of a problem to fix. For the text input, all…

    Needing to fix Nuovo for theme directory

    ,

    So there’s good news, pretty good news and bad news with the Nuovo theme. First, the good news is is that it was finally reviewed for the WordPress Theme Directory after six weeks of waiting around. I’m not going to lie, I was a good bit nervous when I got an email saying someone was…

    Learning how to HTML5

    So now I’ve reached the fun part in creating this Giornalismo theme: the actual creating. Now is the time where things all come together and all of the ideas I’ve had in planning how this thing will work all get put into motion.

    Done with the designs, now onto the production

    ,

    So even with the busy and crazy schedule I have now with college starting up again and essentially three jobs to juggle, I’ve found the time to finish off the mobile designs for Giornalismo (not that’s anything too hard given the fact that I need only one design per template). But with that done, it’s…

    Still waiting and still creating mock ups

    ,

    So the news on the Nuovo Theme is that there’s no news. It hasn’t been reviewed yet, although it seems to be in good company as there are many more themes as old if not older that have yet to be touched by the WordPress theme reviewers, which is understandable given the scope of how…

    Now the waiting game begins

    ,

    So a little after posting last week’s update on the Nuovo theme, I finally really reached the point where it wasn’t really worth getting into the super fine details of cleaning up the theme and decided to test the waters of the WordPress Theme Review and see what happens. And now the waiting games begin.

    Juggling two themes at once

    ,

    To say things have been a bit slow in trying to clean up and fix up the Nuovo theme might be a bit of an understatement. While I finally got rid of the vast majority of HTML markup on the homepage, doing that for the rest of the templates has been much more slow going.…

    Nitpick cleaning on one theme and starting designing another

    ,

    So in the past couple of weeks, I’ve found that it’s easier to create a theme than it is to go through and nitpick and clean it. Case in point, this week it’s taken me a while to knock down the number of HTML validation errors from 160 to 91, though a good majority of…
