Paul here from the WP Remix team.
If you read the previous post on this blog you will know that an WP Remix update was mentioned almost 2 months ago. During this time a lot has changed behind the scenes at wpremix.
We previously outsourced the management of the wpremix.com website, the theme updates, and support to a company in the USA (We are based in the UK). However around a month ago after numerous complaints about this, we decided to bring everything in-house, with me taking control as manager of WP Remix.
Now I am in full control hopefully things will improve greatly here over the coming months. The release of WP Remix 3.0 is just the beginning of this.
Now onto the WP Remix theme update…
I recently hired a full time programmer called Tamil, and for the past 2 weeks he has been working to ensure the transition to WordPress 2.8 for WPRemix users, will be as easy as possible. As a result WP Remix 3.0 is fully functional on both WordPress 2.8 and 2.7.
As a result of the update, the Wpremix theme now comes with a tabbed theme options panel which you can see in the screen shot below:
Here is a list of the other fixes/additions included inside WP Remix 3.0
- All know code errors fixed.
- The send to editor function fixed.
- The seo options that the previous management began installing have been fixed.
- The ability to add custom links in navigation bar from the theme options area has been added.
- The ability to disable sidebars on any of the page templates.
Other features currently in progress which haven’t quite made it into this update, but will be released soon are:
- Enabling comments on pages
- Fully widgetizing the sidebars
- Ability to upload and change header images via the theme admin
Obviously we would have liked to get much more included, but our main priority this time around was to stabilize the functions that were already in the theme, and make sure WPRemix would be fully compatible with WordPress 2.8.
I hope you all enjoy using this new version of WP Remix and I look forward to reading your comments and feedback.
