With the veil of Internet Explorer 6 now lifted, WordPress will be receiving a major CSS overhaul for version 3.3, and the developers are asking for your help, advice, and opinions. The goal of the project is not to change the existing design, but to rather consolidate and simplify the existing CSS to allow for easy expansion and alteration in the future. If you can offer your skills to this project, I’m sure the developers and future WordPress 3.3 users will be much appreciative.

Best of WordPress, WordPress

WordPress.com users are limited to about a hundred styles and no way to modify them except a few simple options, a variety of widgets, and the Custom CSS upgrade. Those of you with WordPress theme design and modification experience may find the lack of being able to edit the template files to be quite limiting, but nothing could be further from the truth. If you’re a WordPress.com user seeking to produce your own unique design, look no further than this collection for some of the best Custom CSS blogs on WordPress.com. Some of the blogs in this collection used the Sandbox theme (practically a blank slate) to build their unique design using nothing but their own CSS, but some have used their Custom CSS upgrade to build extensively on top of existing fully designed themes. Do you use custom CSS on your WordPress.com blog?  If so, we’d love to see […]

This post written on the WeblogToolsCollection.com forums as a news submission has been well received by plugin developers that have taken notice. The article explains how to include CSS and JavaScript conditionally so that the code is not loaded on every page of the site. If you think about it, there are many plugins that only do something once in a blue moon. Table of contents, text manipulators, galleries, sliders, etc, etc. If only they loaded their frontend code strictly when necessary, most page loads would suddenly become much lighter. This technique if implemented by plugin authors sounds like it could have a significant impact on end users websites, especially when it comes to loading times. I’m always impressed with the speed of WordPress when I install a fresh copy without any plugins. WordPress loads very quickly both on the front and back ends. However, once I activate 30 or […]

Plugin Review: cSprites for WordPress

What is cSprites for WordPress? cSprites for WordPress plugin helps speed up your blog by reducing the number of requests made for images. When activated all images within a post will automatically be stitched up and displayed properly as compressed CSS sprites. Screenshots Before activating, all images within a post are being retrieved using separate requests. After activating, all images are stitched together into one compressed image and retrieved using only one request. The plugin then uses CSS magic to display these image sprites properly within the post. Features Quality and style settings let you specify the compression level for the stitched up image sprite. Ability to include/exclude certain types. Cache expiration tuning. SEO Options for SEO nerds. What I Like About It cSprites for WordPress was written to do one thing (convert all post images into compressed image sprites to speed up your blog) and it does it very […]

Theme Designers And Print.CSS

30
responses

Here at WeblogToolsCollection, we see quite a bit of WordPress theme releases coming through our inbox and I’ve noticed a trend. Hardly any of them include printing support. The question I’d like to have answered is why? Is adding printer support to WordPress themes too hard? Does adding this feature take up time? Or is it that this feature is barely any use to anyone? For those wanting to add this type of support to your theme, you can install WP-Print. WP-Print picks up where most theme authors have left off by providing printing support in such a way that end users can print either articles or comments, depending on how you have configured the plugin. In fact, doing a search on the plugin database for the keyword of “print” brought up two pages worth of search results. Another solution for you theme authors out there is called Bunny’s Print […]

WordPress Plugins

Here at WeblogToolsCollection.com, we have already discussed how you can change the color scheme in the WordPress 2.5 administration panel from Classic to Fresh. We have also highlighted an awesome plugin that was written by Kaspars which gives users up to 8 different color schemes to choose from. However, what if you want to create your own color scheme? Thanks to a plugin written by James Dimick called Easy Admin Color Schemes, users can now create their own flavor of the WordPress 2.5 back end. After downloading and installing the plugin, you can access it by browsing to SETTINGS-COLOR SCHEMES. There are three color schemes to start you off, Classic, Fresh and Washedout. The plugin does not allow you to delete nor edit the Classic and Fresh color schemes. This makes sense as you wouldn’t want to screw up a default skin only to have to reinstall WordPress to fix […]

Readability and High Contrast Designs Roger takes on the light text on dark background folks and opns up a can of worms. However, the reasoning is sounds and though the dislike and readability impairment might be limited, the bookmarklet and valuable discussion is worth the read. Do you like dark on light designs as much as light on dark?
