Two months ago, I finally started the process of creating new demos for some of my existing themes. But after seeing very little actually being done 😉 I have realised I need a better plan for which themes I want to continue working on.
The first theme that has recieved an update in preparation for Gutenberg, and a new demo and information page, is Aaron.
While I continue the testing together with a couple of my theme users, you can expect several smaller updates to fine tune the styling. I want the editor and the front to match, but I still want it too look and feel like the same theme.
I am generally a fan of Gutenberg -I am writing this post on my mobile, with the plugin installed – but the frequent changes has not made it easy for theme developers.
The following changes were made in version 3.2 of Aaron:
- Made sure that the custom templates works for all pages, not only for the front page.
- Made sure that the meta box options works with the Jetpack portfolio and testimonial post formats.
- Added a testimonial widget. This widget requires the Jetpack testimonial functionality to be activated. (This widget is the same widget that has been added to some of my more recent themes)
- Made sure that the excerpt_more filter returns the default value in the admin.
- Minor style changes:
- A left side border was added to the blockquote.
- A border was removed from the footer widgets.
- Matched font and styles used in the gutenberg editor.
- I also updated the screenshot, to follow the new guidelines for the theme directory.
Version 3.3 is scheduled for mid october and will mostly be style changes.
