A new year and new WordPress resolutions for 2016

This past year was quite the success for me and developing in WordPress. I got my first theme, Nuovo, into the WordPress Theme Directory. That was followed a couple of months later by Giornalismo, and Fotographia has been submitted for review. I began developing WordPress Plugins, with a total of four in the directory now (although one is a functionality plugin for Giornalismo).

Nearing the end for Fotographia and good news with Giornalismo

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.

Continuing the Giornalismo rebuild

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.

Rebooting Giornalismo

An unforseen diversion

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.

Moving on to the Giornalismo redesign

So another week has gone by and there’s still no news for the Nuovo theme either being ready for the WordPress theme directory or needing more fixes.

But in the meantime I’ve made the decision to go ahead with the re-write for Giornalismo.
