Chris did all the hard work on this release, so credit for the new features goes to him. Widget support is probably the most exciting addition, but there are some less glamorous ones that ought to be just as useful.
As always, let us know if you run into any problems using the theme.
Image classes should allow you to include images in a reasonably elegant fashion, without having to write your own additional styling code. Admittedly using image classes does require adding a smidgen of code when you post an image, but it’s very minor, and should make your pictures look as good as your words.
Widgets are basically drag-and-drop code blocks that let you include various things like text, blogrolls, feeds and so on in areas of blog pages set up to allow them. There’s some documentation on using them with Tarski here.
Currently you can only add them to your sidebar, but we plan to overhaul various bits of the rest of the theme to allow them to be added (or removed) in other places, such as the footer. Chris didn’t think much of the default links widget, so he made a new one.
A rudimentary print stylesheet has been added, so if you print out a page from a blog using Tarski, it should be a bit more readable than previously. The print stylesheet eliminates all the redundant page data like the header, the sidebar and the footer, leaving just the important bit—the content. Additionally, per a user request, you can now enable comments for pages should you wish.
Comments are now closed.
