CE4 Theme for WordPress 3.1.0 Beta 2 Available

CE4 Theme for WordPress 3.1.0 Beta 2 is now available for download. To acquire, please lookup your order from the blog sidebar, under "Find Your Order". Please note, this is a beta build and may be unstable; version 3.0.5 is the current stable release. That said, I would really appreciate some real-world testing on the beta, so please give it a try if you're up for it.

Full changelog is here:
http://ce4.theturninggate.net/docs/doku … _changelog

In the beta 2 build, the focus is mostly on revamping social media and SEO aspects under-the-hood. Open Graph Protocol for Facebook, and Twitter meta tags are completely overhauled. Some proprietary functions found elsewhere in CE4 have been gutted and replaced with more native WordPress functions.

Please let me know if you encounter issues, or have feedback.

To update your theme from a previous version, please follow these steps:

1. Export and upload theme to /wp-content/themes.
2. Visit WP Dashboard > Appearance > Themes; activate the new theme.
3. Visit WP Dashboard > Appearance > Menus; assign menu for Site Navigation, then Save Menu.
4. Visit WP Dashboard > Appearance > Theme Options; configure and Save Options.

Re: CE4 Theme for WordPress 3.1.0 Beta 2 Available

Hey Matt,

Downloaded the latest beta to see if it would solve a menu problem I am running into, but it doesn't

Eventually I hope to drive all my menus through the WordPress menu facility using PHPlugins. None of that work has started because I'm trying to get the menus to function correctly within WordPress first.

However, as soon as I build a multi-level menu within Wordpress and assign it to the CE4 theme, my integrated Identity Plate no longer aligns left. You can see it at http://johnbishopimages.net/blog/. This also happens inside Lightroom if I enable Multi-level navigation even though the Identity Plate Alignment is set to left. Also, the Identity Plate no longers links back to "/" but links to "/blog/" which isn't consistent with the rest of Identity Plate behaviour in CE4.

As well, the size of the drop down menu item is much wider when right justified than it needs to be (it is much narrower with left justified menus).

Re: CE4 Theme for WordPress 3.1.0 Beta 2 Available

The integrated identity plate is a list element, same as the menu items, and subject to the same behavior. You have the navigation aligned to the right, so that's why the identity plate is going over there with everything else in the ul element. If you want to separate their alignments, then you can use custom CSS to do so:

#r2d2-menu {
    position: relative;
    }

#nav {
    position: static;
}

#integrated-identity {
    position: absolute; left: 0;
}

At the moment, I'm uncertain whether using these as plugin defaults would be the appropriate course, so it will have to be implemented via PHPlugins and custom CSS.

As for the hyperlink target, that's my mistake. I missed fetching the site root from the LR config in the masthead function, so I'll make that change for the next release.

Re: CE4 Theme for WordPress 3.1.0 Beta 2 Available

I've been poking at the alignment issue some more, and there seem to be no negative repercussions for making adjustments to the plugin, so I'll go ahead with making the change in the upcoming round of updates.

Re: CE4 Theme for WordPress 3.1.0 Beta 2 Available

Thanks Matt.

With this update, CE4 Wordpress, the ID plate and navigation elements will behave the way the rest of CE4 components do!

I look forward to the next release.

Oops... I think I might have "spoke too soon"! roll 

When the browser window is above the Mobile breakpoint value, the ID Plate links correctly back to the site root. But if you drop below the breakpoint, it still points to /blog/.

Okay, I found the discrepancy. Try downloading the 310b file that I just posted.

Re: CE4 Theme for WordPress 3.1.0 Beta 2 Available

Got it. But some weirdness persists ...

The ID plate now correctly points to the site root at all screen sizes. When I reduce my browser window size to below Mobile Breakpoint or browse the site on my iPhone, the menu flips into "mobile" mode correctly. If I click on the menu drop down triple bar beside the ID plate, all the links inside this drop down work correctly. All good so far ...

However, at this size, when I click on the ID plate, nothing happens. On hover, the pointer changes into a hand and the correct link shows in the browser window hint area (usually bottom left corner). I can either right-click on the desktop or tap-hold on my iPhone and subsequently open the link in a new tab/window but I can't do that directly from the ID plate.

http://johnbishopimages.net is live with the latest update...

Looks like the hyperlink is getting picked up by the menu script ... I'll have to update the firmware on my astromech droid ...

Re: CE4 Theme for WordPress 3.1.0 Beta 2 Available

A cool feature for those of us that use a storyboard layout for our pictures, we need a way to get the space between images in the css the same as the space between them added in the storyboard rows.  It's easy to do with a bit of css like "p img.alignnone {margin-bottom:4px;}" but an image spacing option in Lightroom would be a nice feature without having to add a child theme.  Even better if it could change as the page size decreases with media breakpoints.  You can see what I'm talking about here https://www.ryansmithphotography.com/bl … ryboard-3/

Re: CE4 Theme for WordPress 3.1.0 Beta 2 Available

Have you tried our Stack Gallery feature?
http://ce4.theturninggate.net/docs/doku … ck_gallery

It's not a perfect replacement for the Storyboard plugin, but being code-based has its advantages. Keeping images separate is really helpful on mobile; the way storyboarded images scale on mobile makes them no better than thumbnails.
