It’s been a busy and fun last couple of weeks of web development for me.
Last week, Giornalismo was accepted into the WordPress Theme Directory and with it comes the end of just over a year’s worth of work on the theme. That has also led to really good development with Fotographia.
So this past week has been a pretty good week with the WordPress theme development. Since this time last week, I’ve submitted Giornalismo for the theme review to get into the WordPress Theme Directory as well as the Nuovo 2.0 update. That has gotten a lot off of my plate development-wise, but now comes the not-so-fun part: waiting.
So after the success of Nuovo and the JM Breaking News plugin, I’ve restarted working on Giornalismo full time. I ended up getting a ton fixed on it over the past couple of days, but no one change was bigger than the font and a slight color change.
Ten months after submitting it to the WordPress Theme Directory, my number one goal with Nuovo finally got checked off.
In the early hours of Tuesday morning, Nuovo was finally accepted into the WordPress Theme Directory and is available for anyone to download and use.
So there’s not too much of an update with the themes this week. I’ve continued to re-code everything in the Giornalismo theme. Over the weekend I knocked out the header template, staying close to how things are to be done in HTML5 and what not.
So everything has been moving at a snail’s pace for Giornalismo, primarily due to my busy schedule, but Thursday things came to an interesting halt.
The folks who run and maintain WordPress and the WordPress directory made it official that all themes will have the use the WordPress Customizer instead of creating separate theme options page.
Well shoot, right after I had finally finished learning how to make a really good theme options page, I can no longer use what I learned. Rats.
