2.0.1 Release

With any major Tarski release, I know that there are bugs which won’t rear their ugly heads until it’s in the wild. Tarski 2.0.1 fixes the ones that have shown themselves so far. Details are in the changelog.

Jordan is the man to thank for the major fixes: he’s written a new, more efficient feed parser for the update notifier that should eliminate the memory limitation issues a couple of people had, and added an increased level of robustness to the options updater.

There are also fixes for a couple of CSS bugs, one where the navbar would disappear when only title and tagline were set to not display, and another where the next/previous post navigation disappeared in Internet Explorer.

Lastly, Tarski’s stylesheets are now added via the wp_head hook, and they can now be filtered. This means if you want to replace the stylesheets entirely, and just use the markup skeleton, you can do it without editing header.php. You could also use it to, for example, add per-page stylesheets or change the URLs to point to a separate file server.

Bugs, suggestions etc. to the forum as always.

    Thanks for turning around those CSS fixes so fast!

    Luckily (not so luckily from my perspective, obviously) I’m unemployed right now, so I had the time to troubleshoot things a bit faster than I usually manage. Hopefully now the big rewrite is out of the way, development can go back to its usual snail’s pace.

    Great Theme! I was just about to start tweaking it, then I logged in it said a new version was out! Great job!

    Quick little error you might want to check out in the header file.
    line 8 column 46 - Error: end tag for "meta" omitted, but OMITTAG NO was specified

    Cool ! I am already so much in Love with this theme :)

    Ben – when I use an image as a link, it wraps a 1px ( i think ) border around the image.

    its a bad thing for .gif with different non-square shapes that needs to “blend in”.

    how do I remove that blue border please :) ?

    One more thing.

    In the Recent Article – when I post an image there ( through FlickR ) it gets broken.

    Instead of a blank “content” ( since there is no content, just a picture in that post ) I see these :-

    .flickr-photo { border: solid 2px #000000; } .flickr-yourcomment { } .flickr-frame { text-align: left; padding: 3px; } .flickr-caption { font-size: 0.8em; margin-top: 0px; } Late night Snack,…

    What can we do about this :(( ?

  7. Ben Eastaugh’s avatar

    Thanks Kory, just a missing trailing slash. Will fix that shortly.

    Ehab: there isn’t a way built-in to the theme, you’d have to write an alternate style with content like the following:

    .hideimagelink img { border: none; }

    Then just add the class hideimagelink to the anchor element.

    Nothing I can do about the Flickr CSS, that’s being added by your Flickr image posting, it must add that code inline.

    The constants.php won’t work anymore. Patching the constants_helper.php makes navigation disappear altogether.

  9. Ben Eastaugh’s avatar

    I’ve just uploaded Tarski 2.0.2, which fixes that problem and a few others.

  10. Andreas’s avatar

    Wow, you’re a dash.

  11. Ehab’s avatar

    Hey Ben – thanks for the snippet.

    I also noticed that its being pulled in by FlickR and there is nothing I can do about that, except probably use Flock to blog soon ;)

    I will have to update the theme soon and add the code for the style – ) thanks.

    Another way to work around that issue is to write custom excerpts for your posts, in the field provided (it’s under the file uploader on the Write Post page).

    Hi I get this error when go to Tarski Options

    Fatal error: Call to undefined function curl_init() in /var/www/bitacora/wp-content/themes/tarski/library/classes/version.php on line 76

  14. Jordan’s avatar

    Janzo, just fyi, support requests will be noticed and answered more quickly if you post them to the forum. Someone else had the same curl_init() problem… the workaround is here.

  15. Janzo’s avatar

    thanks and sorry

    This issue will be fixed in the next release (the fix is already in trunk if you’re using our Subversion repository).
