Add PHP code support for HTML/CSS Inserts
YES!!!

If I have 3.4.3 running nicely, is there much point to switching to 3.4.4, since I've solved the issues it fixed? Or should I just wait until 3.4.5?

If you have a setup working, I think you can wait

I think the coolest possible addition would the option to have a layout like this one: http://www.wolf-howl.com/

Shows featured articles at top then summary of latest posts in boxes, I don't think Atahualpa has this kind of functioning. Not sure how hard this would be to implement, but it would be gnarly. Would be a nice change up over having latest blog entries only in list form.

paulae Oct 7, 2009 06:18 AM

This is essentially what I'm doing with Atahualpa and plugins. At one time I did have thumbnails showing in post summaries, but that was causing long loadtimes because the plugin for that, Thumbnails for Excerpts, just serves a scaled-down thumbnail of the same filesize as the original.

oh cool, what plugins are you currently using?

Seek The Truth Oct 9, 2009 02:07 AM

Text Areas in theme options do not auto expand is also a problem with WP-o-Matic plugin in versions 3.4.2 and 3.4.4 that I have seen.

paulae Oct 9, 2009 06:01 AM

Adum, the featured posts are done with Featured Content Gallery plugin.

How about making the next version more advertising friendly that fits the Interactive Advertising Bureau's standards.

- Is it possible to NOT show the horizontal top bar in de admin interface? I cannot find this setting?
- Is it possible to use an image (bullets) before the links in the left or right widgets?
- Is it possible to use an image (bullets) before the links in the horizontal top bar?
- It would be nice if I can add country flags next to Twitter, RSS etc.. for multi language blogs
- Is the template MU compatible
- Is it possible to implement translations? (I see there is no Dutch yet, I can help with that)
- Is the template WP 2.9 compatible?
- Add LinkedIn icon/link option for header

How did you build your layout? I've widgetized the homepage for http://theagnonschool.org, but I'm worried that when it's time to turn the maintenance over to the client, the widget boxes will be too confusing.

Maybe I've been too much in a hurry, but could you please tell where to insert the necessary code - the code that FCG requires?

paulae Oct 25, 2009 07:31 AM

If you want FCG to show only on the front page, edit your index.php file, right at the top:
Code:

<?php        /* get all options: */
include (TEMPLATEPATH . '/functions/bfa_get_options.php');
get_header(); ?>
<div align="center">
<?php if (is_home()) include (ABSPATH . '/wp-content/plugins/featured-content-gallery/gallery.php'); ?></div>
<br />

<?php /* If there are any posts: */

I put in the div to make sure it would be centered, the if (is_home..) part to have it only on the front page, and the br to give a bit of space under it.

kjetil Oct 25, 2009 07:57 AM

Great - thanks Paula - that was quick.
Even better that you give a practical example and your reasons for doing it that way.
I'll test it out for sure.
(Funny thing: On FCG's page it says "Compatible up to 2.7.1" - but I guess only that info line isn't updated(?))
:-)

paulae Oct 25, 2009 08:11 AM

Yes, FCG works fine with WP 2.8.4 and even seems fine with 2.9-rare. On the 2.9 test site, though, I don't have a lot of other plugins working, and I know FCG can conflict with some of them.

I really like what you've done with all those widget areas.

paulae Nov 2, 2009 06:53 AM

Thank you. I love the ability to add new widget areas all over the place. But for a plugin junkie like me, it's dangerous!

paulae Nov 2, 2009 06:57 AM

Flynn, a small or maybe not so small problem in the new widget addition area:
Quote:

Usage
The code to create new widget areas is a PHP function with parameters:
<?php bfa_widget_area('parameter=value&paramater=value&p aramater=value'); ?>
Min. required paramaters
"Paramaters" should be "parameters" in all instances. This is in 3.4.4.

paulae Nov 5, 2009 07:15 PM

Flynn, another issue that I consider a bug, even though it could be a feature if it were done right:

In 3.4.4, the new Atahualpa post options fields under the main editing box have these fields first:
Body Title Single Pages
Body Title Multi Post Pages

They get populated with the post title, or not as you choose. However, if you edit the post title later on, those fields do not get changed along with the main post title. And the title on the front page and single and multi-post pages remain the way it was originally, not picking up the edit. This is a real problem, requiring extra work, and it's easy to forget to scroll down and change those 2 fields. Our volunteer reporters already have a lot to think about, and this just confuses them.

I would rather have the option to not even have those fields appear, or at least make sure the title fields get changed when the main title is changed.

Thanks.

I am new to ATA, have barely plumbed its depths, and truly enjoy the ease with which one can adjust the various theme settings.

In fact, ATA encourages one to make adjustments. And, while I like to tweak/tinker as much as the next, my feature wish extends this idea. Perhaps this has been requested already, I did not look. I would like the ability to save/reuse multiple theme configurations. The mechanism would look like one used on many theme demo sites, except available on admin side only; a drop-down with a list of saved themes. One just chooses another to have ATA switch to new settings. An example would be Christmas, Halloween, or New Year. Each configuration would have different color schemes or sidebar widths. That sort of thing.

My reason is b/c I prefer to vary my theme appearance with seasons, holidays, whatever. A feature supporting this functionality would save a lot of repetitive settings entry (and attendant mistakes) and encourage more use of the theme. Surely, it would also generate more forum discussions. :)

While this request appears to dovetail the export feature noted above, my request is for the settings to be available within ATO, not achieved using an export/import mechanism.

thanks for listening.

Gravity Nov 9, 2009 08:46 AM

Please fix the "need to click 'save' on all settings before MySQL queries goes down" behaviour.

A little change is perhaps needed in bfa_sociable2.php since new version of Sociable allow custom directory for images. Is forced to images folder under plugin in 3.4.4.

Code:

$imagepath = get_option('sociable_imagedir');
        if ($imagepath == "")
                $imagepath = $sociablepluginpath.'images/';

is how they fix this in plugin. Guess something similar should done instead of
Code:

$imagepath = $sociablepluginpath.'images/';

I see multiple excerpts next to each other, that's what most premium themes offer, I hope to see that as an option as well in atahualpa. There are free themes that has this option already, but they all s... :)
Besides that, I'm using Pixel now because I like dark themes without needing education to change atahualpa to black. If Atahualpa would have the option to change to black, I would have changed back to atahualpa yesterday.

But right now, it's one of the best free themes on the planet so keep up the good work.

Hello,
Thank you for all, do you mean add in the header a link area ?
;)

Mikii Dec 10, 2009 02:52 AM

Sorry to bother, but would it be possible to have an estimate delivery date for 3.4.5? I need to work on a huge site with several qtranslate issues and if the date is too far away I'll try some of the suggested fixes myself.

Thanks!
