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.

Re: 2012 Textpattern Default Theme

Release candidate 1 of the theme is now available for download. This is the theme version that will ship with Textpattern 4.5 in a few weeks, though there may be a couple of revisions between now and 4.5 release if any new bugs are discovered. As always, the GitHub repo will provide many more extras than the one that will ship within Textpattern itself.

Latest changes are:

  1. Added a Textile tag reference file, this file contains a large number of tags all in one file can help with development of you own UI/design patterns.
  2. Sass has been made modular for easier development of your own CSS rules.
  3. IE7-8 specific JavaScript files to support HTML5 and media queries are now hosted locally. The CDN linkage was unreliable.
  4. Added form for ‘comment_popup’ – just in case someone actually uses that Textpattern feature.
  5. Excerpts on article lists, if available.
  6. CSS layout now follows Idiomatic CSS scheme.
  7. Recent articles sidebar element has been moved to optional extras folder (non-core). It never really worked that well in practice, but it’s still available as a bolt-on if users wish to use it.
  8. Non-core: added a module to provide website conformance with the EU cookie law.
  9. A few other minor typos, bug fixes and CSS improvements.
