Regulus – WordPress Theme version 2.1.2

A small update with a few new features. The reason for this post, rather than updating the last post, is that I now consider Regulus complete. Barring any show stopping bugs there will be no new updates to Regulus, it’s time to more on.

The change log since the last release is (this includes the changes for version 2.1.1 which went out silently) …

  • fixed widgets unregister bug
  • fixed search box for sites in sub folders (could have sworn I had done this already)
  • added the ability to hide the blog title and description. Useful for people who use custom header images
  • added type attribute to style tag (for validation)
  • added edit post link underneath the title for logged in users (as with version 2.0)
  • changed code and pre tags to use monospaced fonts and add a couple of extra styled doohickies
  • fixed minor validation error(s)
  • fixed sidebar css issue
  • added back admin panel for all sidebars (including widgeted bars)

Grab Regulus 2.1.2 for WordPress 2.0!

Thanks for all the feedback I’ve had. It’s great to know people like and use the theme.

Update

Oh well – so much for 2.1.2 being the last version. I’ve just uploaded version 2.1.3 that has a small change to the admin panel. You can now preview custom header images in the control panel. If the image does not load then you will get an error image. This isn’t essential stuff but it’s a nice usability extra I think, and will hopefully remove the amount of support for custom header images that is bound to occur.

  1. Tony P: open header.php, go to line 88
    starts with

    at the end of the line there you’ll see ‘Home’, just replace that :)

  2. You say that Regulus is complete. I’ve noticed that is doesn’t support localization fully. Will you be spending some time on this? Or will this be done by the WordPress.com team?

  3. Robert – I intend to add internationalization to Regulus. In fact I already have it done. It will be in the next update.

    Tony – well done :)

    Everyone else – thanks for using Regulus. I like it when people say thank you and apologise for my shoddy response rate here.

  4. Since you are updating the theme, what would be the best way to send you some bugs/missing stuff/feature requests? Just post them over here or mail them to you?

    Pls. let me know (by email) what you prefer.

  7. Ahhh, I think I’ve found something else. I saw in the earlier comments where people wanted it to automatically recognized logged in users for comments, so they wouldn’t have to fill out name, email, etc. to post a comment. I think this is causing me some problems.

    I have the exact opposite issue. I don’t have registered users; anyone can post a comment, as long as they provide a name and an email. What’s happening is that it says people are “logged in”, but then when they post a comment it says they need to fill in the required fields (name, email). Is there a way to make it either or? It shouldn’t say the user is logged in if I don’t require a “logged in ” account for comments, right?

  8. Hi Ben
    Just dropped by to say thank you. I’ve been using your theme for a couple of months and really like it. I’m enjoying playing with css for the first time and slowly putting my own stamp on it. Got to create my own header image now :-)

  9. Thanks for the great template. Stupid question probably, but I can’t figure out how to change the “about” page from:

    “About
    This is an example of a WordPress page, you could edit this to put information about yourself or your site so readers know where you are coming from. You can create as many pages like this one or sub-pages as you like and manage all of your content inside of WordPress.”

    to info about myself. How do I do it? Thanks

  10. Hi
    I wonder if someone can tell me where I can change the link URL for “Home”. I don’t want it to be the wp/ folder, but a different page. Where is that set, please?
    Thanks so much
    Ellie

  11. I use Regulus on my hosted blog at wordpress.com. It definitely seems to be the best of the themes they offer, as far as feature-full, and reasonably attractive and customizable without even needing to edit CSS (which costs extra).

    But there’s one oddity I’m not sure you’re aware of. The wordpress.com admin panel allows you to turn on showing number of links included in each Category or each month of the Archive. But when you do this with regulus, the number shows up on the next line, instead of on the same line as intended. This is because of the:

    #sidebar a {
    display:block;
    }

    I’m not sure why a tags in sidebar are set to block in the first place? Over-riding this to display:inline seems to solve the problem and doesn’t seem to solve any others. But it requires knowing enough CSS to figure this out, and it requires paying wordpress.com for the right to edit CSS (a reasonable amount, but should it be neccesary?).

    Is this considered a bug, or is there a good reason for the display:block?

    Thanks for the theme.

  12. Hello, first of all, thanks for the wonderful theme!

    Though, i’m facing a bit of problems to introduce “asides” into it.

    On the WordPress codex there is a step-by-step tutorial for adding asides into a theme (http://codex.wordpress.org/Adding_Asides), but i can’t complete it because Regulus’ index.php doesn’t seem to have the same chunk of text that is mentioned on the tutorial (otherwise i’m blind).

    “Step 6: The next line should be your date call (). Under that, paste this:

    [CODE...]”

    I tried inserting the code into several places of the code, but all resulted in errors. Unfortunately i don’t know php :(

    I’d be very grateful if you could solve that one for me.

    -Paulo

  13. I am not sure if it’s because of your theme, but I cannot embed dailymotion videos correctly. when I use the code from DM or the [dailymotion id=] code it only shows the link not the video. PLease help :o
