Support » Theme: Twenty Twenty-Two » Theme Upgrades Please …

  • After upgrading from Twenty Two-One to Twenty Two-Two, there are 2 prior paragraph functions missing.
    First, the capability to change colour of individual words other than links is now unavailable.
    Second, the useful graphics Drop cap feature is missing.
    Of course I don’t understand why; not being conversant with system or programming complexities.
    Is it possible to resurrect these features and include them in the Twenty Two-Two theme?
    Thank you.

  • I can help you at least with your drop cap issue:

    You can activate the drop cap feature in the theme.json. Go to line 171 and replace false with true.

    Thank you zsyl. I appreciate your support. You’re talking with a guy who has never touched a piece of code in this language.
    Nor should I have to.
    Let me explain:
    If the theme is to be as flexible as suggested by the authors then the Drop cap as an option should be set true from the start so that all users can benefit, irrespective of technical knowledge.
    The same flexibility for individual word colour as a theme standard is either provided or will not be. If not, say so in the documentation or forum. Stop the guessing game.
    Zsyl, my site is in production mode with this theme and I hesitate to try your suggestion because of the 50% probability I might screw up and not be able to undo any damage I create.
    In the end, the functioning of the theme is the responsibility of the theme creators not the user.
    Thank you again zsyl for taking your time to help. Make yourself a great day!

    Please report that via https://core.trac.wordpress.org/newticket

    Please use the “Bundled Theme” component and start the Summary field with Twenty Twenty-Two

    Hi!

    With most text blocks, including the heading, paragraph, table and list blocks,
    you can change the color of individual words or letters using the block toolbar.

    The option is called “highlight” and you can change both the text color and the background color (I believe it used to have a different name in previous versions of WordPress).

    Select the block. Select the text you want to change color for.
    In the block toolbar, open the block tools menu by selecting the arrow icon.
    Select Highlight.
    Now you can select a color from the palette or select a custom color with the color picker.

    -This is not possible with text that is generated for us, for example:
    Site title, post title, latest posts and archive widgets etc.

    Hi Carolina,
    Recognize you from Yoast. Thank you for clarifying the toolbar block usage. In Twenty Twenty-One the option was the second one on the list called Colour. Don’t remember what the first one was because I didn’t use it and being a creature of habit, of course, when Colour was missing I got lost.

    One caution that you should be aware of is the block toolbar allows a link color to be changed also. However going back to the original colour may not be feasible due to more link colours than text ones. Links must be done at the theme block level.

    One suggestion about the colour picker for the future is to allow a copy/paste of a pre-selected colour number into the box in the #nnnnnn format. The reason is that it would simplify and allow a consistent non-palette colour to be used multiple times across a site. My musing for the day.
    Thank you again. Make yourself a great day!

    Ooops! Reviewed my caution in the above message and you can go back to the original colour.
    My suggestion though is to replace the 5 theme colours with the full slate of default colours.

    @zsyl, thank you for the code to enable drop cap.
