It’s been a busy and fun last couple of weeks of web development for me.
Last week, Giornalismo was accepted into the WordPress Theme Directory and with it comes the end of just over a year’s worth of work on the theme. That has also led to really good development with Fotographia.Read This Post about Nearing the end for Fotographia and good news with Giornalismo
So this past week has been a pretty good week with the WordPress theme development. Since this time last week, I’ve submitted Giornalismo for the theme review to get into the WordPress Theme Directory as well as the Nuovo 2.0 update. That has gotten a lot off of my plate development-wise, but now comes the not-so-fun part: waiting.Read This Post about Playing the waiting game

So after the success of Nuovo and the JM Breaking News plugin, I’ve restarted working on Giornalismo full time. I ended up getting a ton fixed on it over the past couple of days, but no one change was bigger than the font and a slight color change.Read This Post about Complete style change for Giornalismo

So there’s not too much of an update with the themes this week. I’ve continued to re-code everything in the Giornalismo theme. Over the weekend I knocked out the header template, staying close to how things are to be done in HTML5 and what not.Read This Post about Continuing the Giornalismo rebuild
So everything has been moving at a snail’s pace for Giornalismo, primarily due to my busy schedule, but Thursday things came to an interesting halt.
The folks who run and maintain WordPress and the WordPress directory made it official that all themes will have the use the WordPress Customizer instead of creating separate theme options page.
Well shoot, right after I had finally finished learning how to make a really good theme options page, I can no longer use what I learned. Rats.Read This Post about An unforseen diversion

So another week has gone by and there’s still no news for the Nuovo theme either being ready for the WordPress theme directory or needing more fixes.
But in the meantime I’ve made the decision to go ahead with the re-write for Giornalismo.Read This Post about Moving on to the Giornalismo redesign

You never really know who might be using your theme. It could be a hard-core coder who knows all of the ins and outs of creating a spectacularly looking post, or it could be someone who only knows how to use a word processor.
So with that in mind, one of the features I wanted to put into Giornalismo was the ability to use shortcodes so that the user can have cool looking parts of his/her post with minimal coding on their part.Read This Post about Giving the user a helping hand
