Sundance
[resolved] Sundance's Responsive Design (6 posts)

    On February 13 2012, The Theme Team for Automattic introduced a new "Starter Theme" called "The _s Theme". It has been closely tied with the development of Twenty Twelve AND if I read the post correctly, All New Themes Coming Out of Automattic will be based on this new Default Theme Structure. I will assume that Sundance is based on this new formatting.

    What I don't understand is that Sundance was launched on March 1, 2012 on WordPress.com's Theme Showcase as having a "Responsive Design" featuring "Responsive Width", AND YET THERE IS NO MENTION OF THOSE FEATURES ON THIS SITE.

    What gives?????

    Okay.

    So you're put off because the WordPress.ORG description and tags aren't as descriptive as the WordPress.COM release page...?

    Just for giggles, I've downloaded the WordPress.ORG version

    http://wordpress.org/extend/themes/sundance

    And used SVN to download the WordPress.COM version

    $ svn co https://wpcom-themes.svn.automattic.com/sundance/ sundance-svn

    And performed a diff on both directories.

    $ diff sundance/ sundance-svn/

    And installed the WordPress.ORG version on my Crash Test Dummy and eyeballed it.

    Except for minor WP.com entries in sundance-svn/style.css and sundance-svn/functions.php it's the exact same theme.

    So... what's the problem again?

    Jan,

    You just proved my point. If they are the Exact Same Theme (and I thought they were), why doesn't WordPress.org categorize/tag Themes for Responsive Design, so that new users can FILTER their search for Responsive Themes Only.

    I have a different problem, cos I'm a bit of a newbie. I am running WordPress.org and WordPress.com blogs side by side. I liked the idea of Sundance cos I do a lot of video. I wanted to experiment with it on my WordPress.org site.
    I clicked on activate. But that installed it on my WordPress.com blog which wasn't what I wanted. I have managed to get it back (though I seem to have lost my header image, no big deal).
    I have downloaded the theme. How do I use it with my WordPress.org site? When I go to themes dialogue inside the site, I can't find Sundance and when I searched on Automattic, I got three themes, but not Sundance. Do I just copy it across?
    And suppose I don't like it after all, how do I get back to where I was before installing Sundance?

  5. @karldallas, please create your own thread. It's considered rude to intrude on someone else's topic.

    Also, if you have a WordPress.COM support question, please take it up with the correct forum.

    See this for an explanation.

    A POSITIVE ADDENDUM:

    Sundance has some great components:

    1.) FitVids

    2.) FlexSlider

    Link: js

    3.) Breakpoints at: 1024, 768, 600, 480, and 320.

    Link: style.css (scroll down to "Responsive Structure")
