Wordpress Themes - WP Forum at BFA
There will be no more development for Atahualpa (or any other theme), and no support. Also no new registrations. I turned off the donation system. I may turn the forum to read only if it gets abused for spam. Unfortunately I have no time for the forum or the themes. Thanks a lot to the people who helped in all these years, especially Larry and of course: Paul. Take care and stay healthy -- Flynn, Atahualpa developer, Sep 2021

Atahualpa 3.4 can be downloaded here http://wordpress.bytesforall.com/?p=72

You may have to use full absolute paths now in CSS, i.e., depending on your WP setup:

due to the way the external CSS is being created/referenced:

Changelog 3.4:
  • DONE: Move dynamic CSS from header.php to external file. Plus option to strip comments and whitespace. The old way to create a dynamic style.css.php was not accepted by Wordpress for their theme viewer, so it was being included in header.php for the time being. The new code for style.css.php should be fine. Through the new compression function the whole CSS gets shrinked to about 7 KByte with mod_deflate turned on on the web server. On a host without mod_deflate or gzip, the file size would be around 20 KByte. All the CSS is in one file now, instead of being spread over header.php and style.css.
  • DONE: Move Javascript from header.php to external file, plus option to compress file. (Compression not done yet, there were issues)
  • DONE Option to add widget areas in Header, Center Column and Footer.
  • Option to compress the HTML (index.php) as well.
  • This will be handled by the compression function: Don't display empty selector { } in header.php's dynamic CSS to save some file size.
  • Avoid PHP warning when /images/header/ directory is empty (no header images available)
  • Check WPG2 plugin again, one user reported link to gallery "jumps out of page"
  • 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
  • Improve integration of Tabbed Widgets plugin. For now, you'll still need to install the plugin, and it will not match every custom style of the rest of your site. This has still some issues, use it only if you know your way around Atahualpa, CSS, etc at least a bit.
  • Bigger task - may be delayed: A first version of a Style Import/Export function. Only Export works so far.
  • May cancel this: Don't apply auto image resizing if layout type is "fixed". This feature is fairly stable but on fixed layouts it doesn't make sense. (But, if you're too lazy to resize your images before uploading them this feature could still be useful.)
  • Floated comments of http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/...mments-plugin/ need fix in Firefox 2
  • Add Gravatar post info item
  • Add styling for twitter widget
  • 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)
  • Option for WPMU to disable HTM/CSS Inserts, disable by default, enable through file edits by WPMU owner
  • 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.
  • Add Twitter icon/link option for header
  • Make header RSS etc. icons in the header gray with color on hover so they integrate better with the rest of the theme, optional, color only icons can still be used
  • DONE: Option to center/right align menu bars
  • DONE: Option to have up to 2 sidebars on either side
  • DONE - sort of: Fully editable header, center and footer area. No more editing of bfa_header_config.php required. (Instead of: "Add many theme hooks to avoid file edits for plugin integration etc.")
  • Add redirect mechanism for items in the menu bars so arbitrary links can be added to menu bars through Wordpress, without file edits
  • Turn icons from transparent GIF into transparent PNG
  • DONE but not tested: Add IE6 PNG transparency fix.
  • Check possible text alignment issue with tinyMCE advanced http://www.mlmanley.com/2009/02/fixe...ahualpa-theme/
  • Not a feature yet but there's a tutorial thread here on the forum: Add option for HTML bullet lists and graphics as list-item markers inside widgets
  • Check again: 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
  • Meta tag char encoding, see http://forum.bytesforall.com/showthread.php?p=5397
  • Check again: Check author comment styling for 3rd and lower level comments, see http://forum.bytesforall.com/showthread.php?p=5702
  • Add option for Print CSS: Print whole page or only middle column, http://forum.bytesforall.com/showthread.php?p=5895
  • DONE: Theme option "Only Excerpts" does not work on homepage
  • DONE: Typo %%author-lastname% in post info items description
  • Check German umlauts in meta description http://forum.bytesforall.com/showthread.php?t=1643
  • DONE: div.post-bodycopy got lost with 3.3.3, put it back in again
  • Option to set own "No Gravatar" image for comments
  • Option to show comment form above comments http://forum.bytesforall.com/showthread.php?p=6673
  • DONE: Category Menu Bar -> Sort Category Menu Bar by: always sorts by ID http://forum.bytesforall.com/showthread.php?p=6753
  • DONE: Option to have no titles or different titles (than the one in the page menu bar or page widget) in the body copy of single post pages and static pages.
  • DONE: Post info item %trackback-linked('linktext')% doesn't work: http://forum.bytesforall.com/showthr...=7016#post7016
  • DONE: Cursor doesn't jump to the left border when clicking into any field of the comment submission form, on certain browser/OS combinations: http://forum.bytesforall.com/showthr...=7041#post7041
  • Add PHP code support for HTML/CSS Inserts
  • Fix or (more likely) remove the Share-This integration. It can still be used by using the PHP tags that the plugin provides, plus one small edit in the plugin's PHP file, see README.txt of plugin (classic version. I don't know about the membership version).
  • DONE: When chosing static page as front page, both the blog (is_home()) and the front page (is_front_page()) item in the the page menu bar are highlighted, when on the blog page - http://forum.bytesforall.com/showthread.php?p=7350
  • Text areas in theme options do not auto-expand when plugin "Share This" is activated, or Form Builder http://forum.bytesforall.com/showthread.php?t=1889
  • Option for popup comments http://forum.bytesforall.com/showthread.php?t=1990
  • Translated date in comments messed up http://forum.bytesforall.com/showthread.php?t=1997
  • Check possible trouble with Headspace plugin http://forum.bytesforall.com/showthread.php?t=1806
  • DONE: Translation plugin works with tagline in header but not with overlayed tagline http://forum.bytesforall.com/showpos...3&postcount=12
  • DONE: Replace Ellipsis [...] in excerpts with custom text and links

linking to external styles and moving sidebars to one side would be huge! It's kinda like the thesis theme.

Another thing I'm always doing is removing page titles from pages.

could you add in the next version a place to change the location for header images. I have managed to make all my visual changes dynamically through your theme options. I am wanting to update to your latest version as soon as they come out the only thing i am left doing is getting the header images. If i can just tell it in the options where to look for them ie /images/headers instead of /blog/... I wouldn't have to deal with them. Not too big a deal but its one of the few hard coded things you have left. Thanks either way. Great Coder!!! you've got one of the easiest most manipulate-able theme for wordpress. I took my custom stuff and ported it over to yours for all the features and it is amazing!!Great job can't say that enough you have put a lot of time, effort, and knowledge into this and it shows. thanks!

Another wish list item.

I would love to be able to set date ranges for specific images to rotate during the defined time frame. In other words;

JUL-01 to JUL-05 -> "Fourth of July image"
OCT-28 to OCT-31 -> "Halloween image"
DEC-01 to DEC-25 -> "Christmas image"

I have a suggestion for when 3.3.4 comes out. Start a sticky thread with any bug fixes. i.e. if a problem is found, and there is a fix, add a post to the 'Atahualpa 3.3.4 bug fixes' thread with a description and the fix.

this way users could be directed to one place to pick up all the bug fixes for the release.

Juggledad has many good ideas. Centralizing information does make it easier. How is the theme your creating for sale going Flynn? If you are afraid of too many errors, how about giving a beta version to a few of your best supporters and letting them test it out?

Wordpress 3.4.1, Atahualpa 3.7.7
Excellent work so far, Flynn.

I was just watching a video about the Thesis theme. It seems to have many of the features of Atahualpa, and I just noticed one that would be a terrific addition to ATA. If you watch the video, it's at about the 10 minute section: http://diythemes.com/thesis/

Basically, it's a very easy way to add code where you want it without having to go into the .php files. You paste in your code in a box, and it's put where you want it.

Send a message via ICQ to breakphreak
Is there any way to have categories and pages on the same row/bar/menu please? If there is no such option, could you please consider it as a part of the wishlist? If there is another solution I would try to implement it carefully thanks a lot!

A simple solution to get thumbnails is written in "thumbnail-for-excerpts" plugin.
This (corrected code) shows the first attached (image) file:
require_once(ABSPATH .'/wp-admin/includes/image.php');
require_once(ABSPATH .'/wp-admin/includes/media.php');
define("TFE_ALIGN","left"); //can be left or right
define("TFE_SIZE","100"); //the size of the thumbnail; modify it for better integration with your design; if you set it as 0 it will be than the default size of your WP thumbnails, from admin area
define("TFE_MAXSIZE","yes"); //if yes, than the above indicated size will be used as maximum size for widht and height; if no, than the above indicated size is used only to limit the width
define("TFE_SPACE","5"); //for the HSPACE parameter of the IMG tag
define("TFE_LINK","yes"); //can be yes or no; if yes, the image will link to the post
define("TFE_CLASS","imgtfe"); //the class for the thumbnail images; you can change it or use this class in you CSS file
define("TFE_CREATETH","yes"); //if yes, the images without thumbnails will have one created now (based on default values for thumbnail from admin area, or on TFE_SIZE if in admin area thumbanil size is set to zero)
define("TFE_TITLE","no"); //if yes, it will use titles for pictures (when you move mouse over the picture you will see the alt text)

add_filter("get_the_excerpt", "putThumbnailForExcerpts");

function putThumbnailForExcerpts($excerpt){
global $wp_query, $wpdb;
$id = $wp_query->post->ID;
$files = get_children("post_parent=$id&post_type=attachment &post_mime_type=image");
$keys = array_keys($files);
# echo "<img src=$thumb width=100 align=right>";
echo (TFE_LINK=="yes"?"<a href=".get_permalink($id).">":"")."<img src=".$thumb." class=".TFE_CLASS." hspace=".TFE_SPACE." vspace=".TFE_SPACE." align=".TFE_ALIGN." width='".TFE_SIZE."' ".(TFE_TITLE=="yes"?"alt='".$tit1."' title='".$tit1."'":"")." border=0>".(TFE_LINK=="yes"?"</a>":"");
#return $img.$excerpt;
return $excerpt;

This would be a great idea if we had the option to add this feature as a plugin as well. Not everbody uses the image in the header.

Kal, I do this with a symbolic link and a cron job:

on Jul 1, run show_jul_4.sh
on Jul 6, run show_regular.sh
on Oct 28, run show_oct_31.sh
on Nov 1, run show_regular.sh

show_jul_4.sh contains:

cd /path/to/images
rm header_image.jpg
ln -s jul_4_image.jpg header_image.jpg

show_oct_31.sh contains:

cd /path/to/images
rm header_image.jpg
ln -s oct_31_image.jpg header_image.jpg


and show_regular.sh contains:

cd /path/to/images
rm header_image.jpg
ln -s regular_header_image.jpg header_image.jpg
