Regulus 2.0

Regulus has been far more popular than I ever imagined it would be. So popular, in fact, that I have already created version 2.0


Version 2.0 has been created specifically for WordPress version 2.0 (hence the name change) and features a number of new features. From the outside it looks the same, with the exception of the 4 new header images and the extra colour scheme, but underneath it uses the new theme system built directly into wordpress 2.0

  • rebuilt admin panel from scratch for wordpress 2.0
  • fixed list item colour in content
  • fixed get_sidebar not called twice on page.php any more
  • fixed search function
  • fixed errors with certain plugins that messed up the about box content
  • fixed message label repeating css bug in IE
  • added reset button to admin panel (for easy uninstall)
  • added screenshot (used in wp2.0 only)
  • added some fancy little javascript doobries to let you preview style options in the admin panel itself
  • added white colour scheme
  • added link listing option and styled listings
  • added 404 page
  • added 4 new header graphics
  • changed line-height in css
  • changed password protected posts to hide certain objects in the widgets bar if the password is not entered
  • swap categories and archives around
  • moved admin bar styles to external style sheet
  • only display ‘read more’ link if excerpts are used
  • option to display post author on individual posts on homepage
  • choose between default blog roll listing and the option to display link categories
  • made the html validate
  • optimised switch.css (reduce download size)

Oh yeah – I fixed a few things in the original version as well so if you are still using wordpress 1.5 then you can update that as well.


Unless there are any major errors I’m not going to do any more work on the 1.5 version of Regulus. Since version 2 is coming out in the not too distant future, and people aren’t complaining, I don’t think it’s worth continuing. That doesn’t mean it will stop working though – so feel free to keep using it 🙂
