Sorry for the lack of blogging and commenting. When I start designing a new theme, I will code and re-code until I’m happy with it. Looks like someone has a tendency for obsessive-compulsive disorder. 😯 Just kidding… I’m just a being a perfectionist.
Anyway, I’m proud to bring you the final release of Yukata Summer, which works across all browsers (except IE6.. for now) and all resolutions starting from 800×600. There are a few features I added that are worth mentioning since they may help WordPress theme designers.
WordPress Dynamic Menu Highlighting
This highlights the page you are currently surfing on your navigation bar. For this site, the highlights extend to the sub-pages. For example, you are currently surfing this post, which is filed under archives, in turn ‘Archives’ in the navigation is highlighted. Check out the WordPress Codex on Dynamic Menu Highlighting for the base code and Conditional Tags to customize this code to suit your needs – like I have done.
Updated WordPress Thread Comment
As some of you may already know, Nanyate?! uses WP Thread Comment to allow responses for comments. I think it’s a nifty tool that, although possibly takes away from the design, allows for conversation amongst the commenters and the author. Having a community of bloggers is the best part about blogging for me. So I will pay a great price to have everyone interact with everyone.
Anyway, this updated version now uses AJAX and has added a feature to email a commenter when the author replies so…Would you personally like to be notified when I reply to your comment? Thanks a lot! Your responses will really help me!
And finally, I’d like to end this post with a big thank you goes to:
- JJ Magazine for the yukata inspiration
- My housemate for lending the magazine to me
- 72Quadrat.de for the layout inspiration
- Seishido.biz for the cherry blossom brush. It was $1 well spent.
- My subscribers, visitors and commenters whose presence and comments continue to inspire me to work harder on this site.
