First and foremost, let me apologize to everyone for the delay with this update. It has been almost two months since F6 came out. There is a very good reason why the update took so long.
Basically I wanted to keep the look, feel and functionality of earlier versions of WP-Forge. This was paramount to me. If it had taken me a year to get it right, well then we would have had to wait a year. I am not the type of person who just slaps the latest and greatest thing together and hope nothing goes wrong. I have to make sure everything is working just right. It has to meet my standards. Not only that it has to meet the standards my users have come to expect in WP-Forge.
So again, I apologize for the delay but I am pretty sure you will be happy with what I have done.
So without further ado I am happy to say that, the best WordPress Foundation Theme, WP-Forge 6.1.1, is now available for beta testing. Below is a copy of the
= 6.1.1 = * Updated to the latest version of Zurb's Foundation, 6.1.1 * Increased the width of the theme from 1024px to 1200px. This is based off the new width of rows wich is 1200px. * With the increase in width, I decided to add a fourth footer widget. * Added fonts.css to editor. Previously only genericons.css was added. Since this was combined into fonts.css with font-awesome, fonts.css was added. Now genericons and font-awesome are available via the editor. * Updated Font-Awesome to latest version, 4.5. font-awesome.min.css was added to fonts.css, the full version of Font-Awesome is located in /fonts/full (per WordPress guidelines). * Genericons css was minified and changed in fonts.css - full version of genericon.css is available in /fonts/full (per WordPress guidelines). * Added Motion-UI (https://github.com/zurb/motion-ui) * Renamed load-foundation.js to app.js. * Removed normalize.css - it is now part of foundation.css. * Increased thumbnail size to 800px and full width thumbnail to 1200px. * Removed Modernizer - The way F6 is written, this file is no longer needed. * Added the contain-to-grid option back for the main menu area. Initially I removed it because the contain-to-grid element was removed in F6. However I was able to retain this option. All options previously available for the top-bar menu are still intact. * Added to ability to set the font size for the footer area. * Removed the 'wpforge_active_list_pages_class' function. This started on line 276 of functions.php - This function was not need as the 'wpforge_active_nav_class' function above it starting on line 261 added the same 'active' class to the current page item in the top-bar menu. * Added a new version of page-navi function. Old function was not displaying properly. See http://www.wpbeginner.com/wp-themes/how-to-add-numeric-pagination-in-your-wordpress-theme/ for more information. * Removed the custom-bckground-white body class from the theme. I saw no purpose in it, so it is removed. * Removed the postfix element from the search submit button. This element was removed from F6 and shrunk the submit button in the search form widget. * Added new off-canvas menu. I was able to retain the look and functionality, plus all of the options in the customizer. * Adjusted the options for the new top-bar menu in customizer. * Added @version to all files for better version control. * Corrected an issue in the comment form. In discussion settings, unchecking "Comment author must fill out name and email" removed the "Your Name" and "Your Email" labels from the comment form. These labels appear properly now. See this thread: https://wordpress.org/support/topic/comment-form-labels-not-visible-on-discussion-setting-change?replies=3#post-7869547 - Thanks to user "forbc" for bringing this to my attention. * Added option in customizer to reset the comment forms back to their original poisitions. For details see http://www.wpbeginner.com/wp-tutorials/how-to-move-comment-text-field-to-bottom-in-wordpress-4-4/ * The separator for breadcrumbs will now show automatically via css.
If you would like to participate in the beta testing, please leave a comment below and I will be more than happy to send you a copy. However, keep in mind that I do expect some feedback in return. Break it, smash it, do what you will to it but please let me know what you find out, if anything.
Also, this is not the final version. I feel comfortable enough with the theme at this point that she can be tested. The final version will not be available until you see the update notification in the admin area of your WordPress site. So the quicker I get this sent out, the quicker I can submit to the theme review team.
Please understand, this beta is not for productions use. If you apply it to your live site and it breaks I will not help you in any shape form or fashion. Make sure you install on a local or remote testing environment and cross check files to make sure any and all changes you have made are carried over.
So remember, leave a comment, send me an email or leave a comment on my channel and I will send you the beta files. Let’s make this a great beta test.
Until next time, enjoy
