If you are an Indianapolis Colts fan, take heart. All is not wrong with the world, for now there is a new version of the Ahimsa theme for WordPress. Alright, okay, a new version of some WordPress theme does not equal a SuperBowl ring, but remember, you don’t get to wear a SuperBowl ring but you do get to decorate your blog as you desire!
If you have performed any customisation of Ahimsa (by creating or editing skins, or creating a custom stylesheet custom.css or custom footer footer-custom.css) then please, PLEASE read the section below on Saving your Ahimsa Customisations before you click on the Download button.
- Tested: Safari4, Chrome Beta for Mac, Firefox 3.6, IE7, PHP 4.3 and above, WP 2.8 and above
- Left, Right and No sidebars
- Quick Fancybox Gallery shortcode
- FAQinway: FAQ shortcode
- Use of “theme store” outside theme directory to avoid losing customisation files on theme upgrade
- Option to disable action/feed box for pages
- Fix for Firefox 3.6 title alignment issue
- Updated fade in/out effects to jQuery (fixes flicker issue)
- Various other fixes
If you are curious about how to use the shortcodes mentioned above, stay tuned for a post coming up shortly. You can see an example of the Quick Fancybox Gallery in the instruction images (clickable thumbnails) above.
Two fixes (the Firefox 3.6 title issue, and a fix for comments code for older WordPress versions) identified by Ahimsa users. I wish I could give them the attribution but I have forgotten who they are. My sincerest apologies to them. I am searching through the comments to find their names.
UPDATE with CREDITS: Caleb Adam Haye deserves credit for identifying and fixing the comments code for old WordPress versions. Mike identified a bug (and the fix for it) in the skin edit code. TheJuice, Nakke, Geakz and Chris Kaczor identified the Firefox 3.6 title rendering issue (Chris took the additional step of filing a bug at GitHub, and Geakz and BigLeague tested Ahimsa 3.1 before release); John Campbell figured out the cause of the problem (an IE specific CSS specification). My thanks are due to all of them, and those I have forgotten to mention (this latter group also deserves my apologies; please identify yourself in the comments), as well as all of you who have found this theme useful and encouraged me with your comments and feedback.
