Post Avatar update coming soon

Yes! Finally! An update for Post Avatar. I’m finishing up the testing and readme so expect the latest version (1.6) to hit within the week.

So what’s changed?

I’ve refactored the code to make use of Settings API and put in a number of features that makes the plugin more extensible. Some more language packs will be available. I’m basically setting the table for future revisions which on my current roadmap includes:

  • Multi-site compatibility
  • Uploading to images folder
  • User images and group images

Update: The updated plugin is now live at the Plugin Directory

Theme Development Ahoy!

Theme Development Ahoy!

WordPress 3.4 is shaping up to be an exciting release for theme developers.

The biggest news is that the after two years(!), the theme installer will now support child themes.

Also support for custom header sizes, new API called WP_Themes along with the removal of constants for custom headers and backgrounds.

And(!), page templates can now be placed in their own sub-directory.
