Metro Theme Widget Titles

Description

The StudioPress Metro theme adds a span tag and class to widget titles using a filter in the theme’s functions.php file, and then styles that class with CSS. Unfortunately this method is not compatible with plugins that escape html in widget titles.

Metro Theme Widget Titles removes the default Metro widget title filter and replaces it with a filter that is compatible with plugins.

Added in version 0.2

If you’ve updated the original Metro theme to HTML5 this plugin will restore the look of the “Leave a Reply” title in the comment form. It may also undo any change you’ve made to that text. If it does, you can edit the text in the plugin’s filter, live with the change, or deactivate the plugin.

If you are using the Metro Pro theme, this plugin will restore the look of your widget titles, comments title, and “Leave a Reply” title to the old Metro theme look.

This plugin is intended for websites using the Genesis framework, and specifically the StudioPress Metro theme

FAQ

Will this plugin work without the Genesis framework?

No, it won’t. This plugin references hooks that are specific to Genesis. If you install it without Genesis it probably won’t break your site – it just won’t do anything.

No settings page?

Nope. This plugin is really simple and does one thing. Well, maybe a couple things now…
