  • DONE: Replace Twinhelix IE6 PNG transparency fix with DD_roundies (1 file, no images, background & background repeat and hover works).

  • DONE: Check widgets in WP 2.8, Subscribe widget and other BFA widgets http://forum.bytesforall.com/showthread.php?p=10405
  • DONE: IE 7 "White bug". Menu Bar colors messed up when fff, ffffff or white are being used as Hover/Current background color. Affects IE 8, too, as Atahualpa is running in IE 7 compatibility mode. Added warning to use fffffe instead of ffffff. http://forum.bytesforall.com/showthread.php?t=3569&highlight=white+bug
  • DONE: Add sidebar ON/OFF option for Custom Taxonomy pages http://forum.bytesforall.com/showthr...tom+taxonomies

  • DONE: Changed CSS order for background colors. Check background/hover colors of menu bars in IE6, when colors were changed
  • DONE - works for me by using the existing option "Comments Are Closed text". Add option to allow comments on selected pages (instead of just all pages or none) - BETTER yet, make it follow the Wordpress editor settings - http://forum.bytesforall.com/showthread.php?p=6118
  • DONE: Should be covered by new widget list item style (left border on LI instaed of A by default) Add styling for twitter widget
  • DONE: Check author comment styling for 3rd and lower level comments, see http://forum.bytesforall.com/showthread.php?p=5702
  • Canceled: (This can already be done with "Style & Edit Center Column" -> Content above Loop / Content below Loop). Add header and footer options, or title option for multi post pages. http://forum.bytesforall.com/showthread.php?p=10222
  • Canceled: (Too error prone, too little file size gain) Option to compress the HTML (index.php) as well. Probably just clean up, remove blank lines and indention. Full compression is too error prone and the saving are rather small.
  • Canceled: (Put an image there or turn header images off.) Avoid PHP warning when /images/header/ directory is empty (no header images available)
  • Canceled: (Could not replicate.) Check WPG2 plugin again, one user reported link to gallery "jumps out of page"
  • Canceled: (Put a blank text widget into the sidebar) Add theme option to remove that default content from the sidebars, for users who want blank, but existing sidebars (instead of turning them off altogether)
  • Canceled: (Full WPMU integration incl. option to configure theme options for users may become a commercial module. Atahualpa works with WPMU but I cannot maintain a full blown WPMU version on the side, for free) Option for WPMU to disable HTM/CSS Inserts, disable by default, enable through file edits by WPMU owner
  • Canceled: (Too much featuritis) Option for individual link titles (<a title="..." href=") for page links via custom fields or similar. Category links already use the description field for their link titles.
  • Canceled: (Doesn't seem to make a difference on the front end) Check whether the clearfix styles at the bottom of css.php are compressed properly, without removing the hacks
  • Canceled: (Doesn't cause trouble or side effects) This will be handled by the compression function: Don't display empty selector { } in header.php's dynamic CSS to save some file size.
  • Canceled: (Nobody seems to have this issue anymore, Link URL dead) Check possible text alignment issue with tinyMCE advanced http://www.mlmanley.com/2009/02/fixe...ahualpa-theme/
  • Canceled: (featuritis) Add option for Print CSS: Print whole page or only middle column.
  • Seems fine: Display actual path, i.e. /wp/wp-content/atahualpa/images/backgr.gif instead of generic example /wp-content/atahualpa3/images/backgr.gif in help/example text in the theme options

A couple of possible suggestions: Give option to choose comment highlight color for admins or editors when commenting on posts they are not the author of (aka when they comment on contributors posts).

Have "delete" and "spam" links directly on comments (next to "reply" and "edit").

lhanft Jul 28, 2009 09:47 PM

Here's a suggestion: Separate Category Archive pages that can be individually customized.

I did a search of forum posts for "category page" and came up with at least a half dozen threads in which people using WP as a CMS were trying to figure out how to group the posts from each category on a page.

Some had success with the page2cat plugin; someone used the Blog Introduction plugin; other suggested creating individual archive templates. The first didn't work for me; the second didn't do quite what I wanted; and the third turned out to be beyond my skill/patience.

(My solution: put the desired intro information in a post, used WP-Sticky to make the post an announcement; used Redirection plugin to redirect the category pages I'd created and placed in the page menu to the corresponding category archive pages. Clunky, but it works for now.)

ariels Jul 30, 2009 08:12 AM

How about fixing the mis-padding issue when using an overlay box in header?

Also... how difficult would it be to add catgeory/ies for pages and able to menu them down on the now-possible link bar?

Further down on my wish list is the ability to sticky a page into the blog roll. Yes... I know....

Joep Hein Aug 3, 2009 04:14 AM

Yes the qtranslate issue is a very welcome fix for the next release.

3ukman Aug 6, 2009 06:50 PM

Can we request the option to have Static CSS ? - http://forum.bytesforall.com/showthr...ghlight=3ukman

Honestly , static CSS , changes the download performance dramatically , you guys do such complex things , is this not a no-brainer ?

3ukman Aug 6, 2009 06:52 PM

a Second no-brainer seem to be fixing that thing where you have to manually SAVE all option tabs to get from 120 to 27 queries per page view. What is that about ? If not fixed on internal level , can there be am option that saves all tabs for us in one click ?

I cant help but feel like a complete idiot sitting there clicking save and save and ...

When will this be available I really need it to get on with rehashing my site... this is a great theme and am really looking forward to being able to use it on my bilingual site.

MountainStream Aug 9, 2009 03:10 PM

How about adding Tabs functionality to the main pages/posts and/or side bars? Also, it would be nice to be able to set the number of posts to show on the front page.

vishvadeep Aug 18, 2009 05:37 PM

Hi Flynn,

Can you add an option to add the google custom search adsense code to the header search option

vishvadeep Aug 18, 2009 05:39 PM

I have a very good idea. Can you integrate that where the website's jquery file can be loaded from. like from google, yahoo, your custom url

vishvadeep Aug 18, 2009 05:52 PM

is it possible to integrate this feature.

Can you create this feature which will allow the atahualpa theme to make separate parts of the website static. such as the theme could analyse the code used in the website and then it could write a static css file in the directory, which can be used unless you wanna use the dynamic css.

Also there could be an option in this feature where just the are which contains the sidebars, and the headers can be made static

vishvadeep Aug 18, 2009 05:59 PM

add the ability to have a comment box like the one in intensedebate wiith the option of fbconnect, twitter, openid logins and also make the comment box look prettier, with a lightbox login option.

ovizii Aug 19, 2009 01:57 AM

please fix the wpmu compatibility:

nothing that allows users to edit/insert php and JS code should be enabled.
Css isn't dangerous if you do a proper filtering...

we are really waiting for this to become wpmu compatible :-) - love the theme!

RonnieG Aug 19, 2009 09:28 AM

Convert from tables to Divs. Tables are Web 1.0, and create problems / prevent enhancements when trying to do some special styling, like adding divs within tds for true cross browser rounded corners on layouts and main content.

mcgiver058 Aug 28, 2009 07:47 PM

How about adding a Home link in the categories pages when the Newer / Older is displayed? (This might be fixed when the nav link issue is resolved)

law Aug 31, 2009 12:58 PM


New on this forum.

I have problems with comments from one post. If i split comments in pages, I can't read anymore the oldest one, only the latest. There is no button, to go back to old comment.

In v3.4.1.

Lnk example: http://laurentiu.elenaworld.net/2009...mba-romana-18/

I have 139 comment but i can see only the latest 19(split in 30 comment per page)

Need help

PS: other problem is if it's possible to show pingback in the comment or at the end of the post


aedrin Sep 8, 2009 09:52 AM

I've found a little bug in 3.4.2 (don't know if it previously exists...)

if SEO options activated, they are encodings problems when viewing category or search...

I found it was because htmlentities is used in these two cases but with no charset defined...
so to fix the bug, in file /functions/bfa_meta_tags.php

line 75 change
PHP Code:

$bfa_ata_page_title htmlentities(single_cat_title(''false),ENT_QUOTES); 

PHP Code:

$bfa_ata_page_title htmlentities(single_cat_title(''false),ENT_QUOTES,get_bloginfo('charset')); 

same thing in line 83...

jmbolivar Sep 11, 2009 05:40 AM

The theme is awesome. If it had an option to use Google AJAX Search instead of the default search that would be great. I know it is already possible to do it but it requires to add a new widget area, style it... I mean just an easy, straightforward way of switching between default and Google.
Keep up with the great job.

Gravity Sep 28, 2009 02:35 PM

Are there any issues to be aware of when upgrading from 3.42 to 3.43, or is it a 'drag n drop' upgrade so to speak?

juggledad Sep 28, 2009 03:35 PM

drag and drop - just remember to copy your header images in to the new releases images/header folder. My advice is to call teh folder atahualpa343 then you can multiple versions just in case you need to fall back

kjetil Sep 28, 2009 03:46 PM

Thanks for clearing up that (I normally always keep a zipped version, even of old plugins before overwriting their folder. Seems paranoid, but has proved useful)
- I use several category templates (based on index.php) - it seems that since index.php hasn't been altered I can just drop in my old templates.
- Any other "typical" customizations one should think of? Will such necessities eventually be explained in future releases?

juggledad Sep 28, 2009 03:53 PM

Well anytime you make a change to the code itself (not talking about the options you set in the wordpress backend) or add something to the theme folders, you will have to carry them forward yourself. I know Flynn is thinking about using a new folder in wp-config to allow you to store the images so they won't be affected by upgrades

Gravity Sep 29, 2009 01:24 PM

Thanks Juggle.

Gravity Oct 22, 2009 11:11 AM

Upgrade worked fine. I did have to fix a workaround with my widget text size (had a 50% setting in previous version), re-apply my sponsor benefit to the theme, and done.
