Re: 2012 Textpattern Default Theme

Unfortunate that TXP’s translation string support with the text tag isn’t same as with gTxt() function. Basically, if anything, I would recommend using curly-tag structure. I.e.

author => Author's name,
posted => Timestamp,
author_note => '{author}: {posted}',

I wish text supported tags as gTxt() does, so one could do this;

<txp:text item="author_note" posted='<txp:posted />' author='<txp:author />' />

Where the author_note string would contain {author}: {posted}. Should be pretty easy to patch in even;

/**
 * @example <txp:text item="stringName" escape="0|HTML" [ tag1="", tag2="" ...] />
 */

	function text($atts)
	{
		extract(lAtts(array(
			'item' => '',
			'escape' => 'html',
		),$atts, 0));

		unset($atts['item'], $atts['escape']);
		$tag = array();

		foreach($atts as $name => $value)
		{
			$tag['{'.$name.'}'] = $value;
		}

		return ($item) ? gTxt($item, $tag, $escape) : '';
	}

Re: 2012 Textpattern Default Theme

Thanks people. I’m no clearer as to whether to strip colons out of the theme or not. Seems to me the easiest solution is to get rid of them.

Then there’s RTL languages, it makes my head hurt even trying to understand how they could work.

Re: 2012 Textpattern Default Theme

The theme has been updated to beta3, you can download it from GitHub as usual.

Changelog since beta2…

  1. hNews microformat support.
  2. Remove hardcoded colons from theme (better internationalisation).
  3. Removed dependance on Modernizr.js, and then removed ‘js’ directory as it’s no longer necessary. Now targets old IE using IE conditionals.
  4. Some minor CSS improvements.

Cheers, Phil

Re: 2012 Textpattern Default Theme

I’ve been away from forum for some time and discover very interesting things!
Awesome Phil’s Default Theme and very useful links suggested by RedFox, in particular the Adaptive Images script.

Re: 2012 Textpattern Default Theme

That reminds me, about time I put a new beta up. Beta4 has the following changes

  1. Added a Flickr feed bolt-on (optional extra).
  2. Updated Google +1 and Twitter Tweet button code (optional extra).
  3. Some CSS feature support added for Firefox 3.6 (moz-border-radius) and Firefox 4+ (moz-resize).
  4. Uses more em measurements for better resolution independence.
  5. As of Textpattern v4.5, HTML5 elements are natively supported, so remove comment warnings (need Textpattern r3627 onwards).
  6. Better CSS optimisations for HTML lists.
  7. Other minor CSS improvements.

Please note that Textpattern r3627 or newer is recommended when using this theme.

Re: 2012 Textpattern Default Theme

Hi Phil :)

I’m currently trying this beta 4 version and personally I prefer this full width rendering (to the another one ;)

May am I suggest you somethings ?

First, the space between the main title and the website slogan seems too hight.
Second, may be you could take advantage of this CSS rules to get a better balance between letters spacing:

body{
-webkit-font-smoothing:antialiased;
font-smoothing:antialiased;
text-rendering:optimizeLegibility;
-moz-font-feature-settings:"kern=1";
-ms-font-feature-settings:"kern" 1
}

Best regards,

Please. Don’t . use . this. -webkit-font-smoothing is a webkit only property that has NO equivalent in any standard to date. And certainly don’t use a non-prefixed non-standard property.

And it results in ugly text rendering on OS X.

font-feature-settings could be used, yes. Eventually. But add at least the @-webkit- prefixed version as well.

Re: 2012 Textpattern Default Theme

Agree with Philippe, I had some of those rules in the theme when I started it (mainly because html5 boilerplate had them as well), but general concensus is they screw up font rendering more than they help.
