Twenty Twelve? (27 posts)

    Hey all,
    Does anyone know when WP might roll out Twenty Twelve? I've been thinking of switching a couple of my sites to Twenty Eleven, but now I'm thinking it's so late in the year, maybe I would want Twenty Twelve anyway? If it's not for a couple or three months, I would switch now, but if it's going to be in the next several weeks, then, I'll wait.
    Thanks!

    It's definitely not going to be within a few weeks.

    The theme change would happen with a major release most likely (3.4, 3.5, etc. as opposed to 3.3.1, etc)

    As 3.3 just came out, the next major update (3.4) hasn't really even begun. You can safely assume it'll be a few months, as a minimum, if that is even part of the scope for the next major release

    That explains the unusual delay in the theme release, it's the eight month of the year.

    Have been waiting for a theme exactly like Twenty Twelve and can't wait to use it. So well organized, beautiful layout, fonts, and love the page and post templates.

    Hurry up, we are anxiously awaiting the new arrival.

    Best of luck.

    It´s now available on WordPress.com. In the announcement it says that we don´t have to wait for WP 3.5 - the theme will be released in the Theme Directory soon.

    Self-hosted WordPress.org users will have access very soon via the WordPress.org Extend theme directory, and the new theme will be bundled with the official 3.5 software release later this year.

    It'll be worth the wait!

    I ran Version 0.6 from GitHub on my site for a while and loved it; last night I activated the latest version of 0.9 (plucked from the WordPress nightly build) and SEVERAL bugs have been fixed in how it displays on mobile devices. The weird justification issues in comments and widgets from the previous version of 0.9 have also been fixed.

    The only thing weird thing going on right now in the version of 0.9 I installed last night is that the image borders are not displaying properly on mobile and the left border is missing on images when viewing on the web. All the borders directly display on the 0.6 version.

    This is a beautiful theme. As a commenter on WPMU.org said, my blog no longer looks like a blog. It looks like a website. And I love it. Huge thanks to all involved.

    And as itchy as I am to get a full-fledged Version 1.0 installed on my site, it's okay to take a few more days and get it right, right, right.

    Dear John,

    Thanks so much for the update. I agree with the comment that the design makes WP look and function more like a beautifully designed site than just a blog, which is what I have been waiting to have happen for years now.

    Any indication of when the public, tested, and ready to use version will be available? Will we be able to install it directly like Twenty Eleven?

    Best wishes,

    S.

    Hi, S.,

    I wish I knew. :) I don't work for WordPress, I'm just a blogger like you. :)

    I have no idea when they plan to officially roll it out for the rest of us, but hopefully soon!

    For now, you can go here and download the nightly build. Unzip it, go to the wp-content folder, and then the themes folder. Drag the twentytwelve folder to your desktop, zip it, and then upload that zip file to your themes section in your Dashboard. That way you can give it a spin before it officially hits the repository!

    Thanks for the details Matt. Sorry, I overlooked your comment about the theme being available in the Extend Theme Directory. Just antsy to get my revamped blog back up and only with Twenty Twelve.

    Very helpful posts and information here so far. A great support system for those of us who are not coders, designers, etc.

    Best,

    You could also download what's already on WP.com, via the SVN repo

    ok i've been reading about 20/12 and want to try it on my website and CAN NOT!

    it does not show up as an option when I search themes from my website.

    the ONLY place i can find it available is as a choice for *starting a blog,"

    which is kinda maddening. i don't do code - & these links to "trunk" are doing a fine job of making me feel stupid....

    what am i missing? John Bierly - if i read you right, it is NOT actually available... so how come other places folks are raving about it? Blog only mebbe?

    please use words for the unschooled if possible.

    twitchingly yours, j

    jude42:

    Here's what I did. I went here:

    https://github.com/thethemefoundry/twentytwelve

    ... and downloaded the ZIP file near the top of the page (beside the "Clone in Mac" button).

    Then, from my site's Dashboard, I installed the ZIP file just as you'd install any other theme. And BOOM, I'm running Twenty Twelve (Version 0.6) on my website at http://www.johnbierly.com

    It's really that easy. Just download that ZIP file, install it as you'd install any other theme, and you're good to go. When they release the official version, you can delete Version 0.6 and install the official one.

    jude42,

    Try this:

    Go to the CURRENT trunk of the entire WordPress file:

    http://core.trac.wordpress.org/browser/trunk

    Download the zip archive at the very bottom of the page.
    Extract the entire file somewhere on you computer.
    Delete the zip file.
    Open the extracted file and open WP Content, and then Themes.
    Right click the TwentyTwelve file and zip it into a separate file.
    Upload the zipped TwentyTwelve file through your website's Admin Panel.
    Activate the Theme.

    Delete the entire downloaded WP file from your computer. The current WordPress version 3.5 is only 1/2 completed.

    I don't know of any way to update this "version" of Twenty Twelve, UNLESS you install the nightly build version on your server. If you do that, I believe that Twenty Twelve is now included in it. I tried that but my navigation menus wouldn't display, so I went back to WordPress 3.4.2. I'm happy with that.

    esmi has been correct in noting that Twenty Twelve is still in beta as far as WordPress.org usage is concerned.

    Thanks to shapeshifter3 I successfully installed twentytwelve on my self-hosted blog. Does anyone know how to remove the gray border around the header image? And how to move the menu under the header? Thanks in advance for your help.

    Actually is it possible to delete the whole shadow border effect for header image AND the body? Thanks again for your help.

    it might be better if you start your own topic, and post a link to your site.

    For those that are wanting to download the latest version of Twenty Twelve to play with, instead of downloading the ZIP from Trac, I recommend just using Subversion instead:

    maxx(adam)$ svn co http://core.svn.wordpress.org/trunk/wp-content/themes/twentytwelve
    A twentytwelve/content-image.php
    ... snip ...
    A twentytwelve/header.php
    Checked out revision 21852.

    and then you can easily get any updates later by changing into your twentytwelve directory and running this commend:

    maxx(adam)$ cd twentytwelve

    maxx(adam)$ svn update
    At revision 21852.

    got it, yay!

    but now the black menu bar has disappeared - everything is there in a long list under a little centered box called "menu."

    i don't know why none of my structure survived - the header was gone, etc...

    & i don't mind re-doing stuff, but HOW? Can't find anywhere to get that black menu bar back.

    There is a terrific forum page that whizzed by somewhere else that gave a great run-down of how to structure menus- something i had to learn through trial and infinite error. I wanted to aske this question there, but i can't find that exact forum.

    thanks for whatever help you can give.

    @jude42, is it possible you were viewing in a narrow browser window (or on a mobile device)? From what I understand, Twenty Twelve is built as a responsive theme, and it sounds like you're seeing a compact version of the menu that's swapped in when the viewport is too narrow for the full horizontal menu bar.
