WordPress 4.3 “Billie” is out

The brand new and shiny version 4.3 of WordPress is out, bringing more bells and whistles to Customizer, formatting shortcuts to the editor (looks like Markdown made its mark), and more.

I’ve upgraded and also switched this site to Twenty Fifteen theme, just to see how it all works.  No coding customization done yet – only whatever is available through the mouse clicks.

Trying out Flounder

I’m trying out the Flounder WordPress theme for my blog.  It’ll take a few moments for me to configure everything, so please don’t get annoyed just yet.  Theme options are fine, but it looks like I have a few issues with custom post types, which aren’t matching my previous theme (Favepersonal).  I’ll update this post once I’m done – that’ll be the time to report the issues.

 

Update (April 9, 2014, 01:47am): most of it works now.  There are still a couple of small quirks for me to fix, but feel free to let me know if you see anything wrong.

WordPress themes : Houston

I’ve covered the simple, but very functional p2 theme for WordPress, that helps one to create an Intranet  in five minutes or so.  One thing that p2 lacks a bit though is eye-pleasing beauty.  It’s simple and functional alright, but it’s not much to look at.

It turns out that people all around the globe were working to solve this  problem, mostly with a variety of child themes.  Today I came across one such project – Houston.

Now I can’t wait to try it out on one of my upcoming projects.
