Support » Theme: Pinboard » What is included in the upgrade?

  • Hi Daniel,

    As I have used this theme for several sites and 2 for clients, I really need to know the details of what is provided in the new update BEFORE I can safely install it …

    When clicking the link for details of the upgrade, it just goes to the normal page about the theme and I cannot find the documentation about what has been changed.

    Since WordPress reports that 34 of 154 support threads in the last two months have been resolved – I can’t afford to take any chances 🙁

    Please advise & thank you.

  • I don’t know if this will help you in full, but there is some information about the new release on the theme developer site:



    There is an update for the theme from 1.0.6 to 1.0.7.

    Here is what have been changed:

    * Fixed header image stretching full width
    * Fixed title of first slide not displaying
    * Theme option not present in database returns default value
    * Enabled header image flexible height
    * Updated color picker to WP Color Picker
    * Enabled post thumbnails for all post types
    * Made layout borders blend into custom color scheme
    * Added background color option for submenus
    * Changed default layout when sidebar is inactive from no-sidebars to full-width
    * Added compatibility code for jQuery 1.9

    Thank you Alexander –

    Since I’ve used this theme for client sites, I have to be sure that I don’t over write customizations. I’ve recently been trying to create a child theme for it (on my own site for testing it) but so far can’t get that to work. I sent a message to another WP theme developer that helped me out in the past, to see if he can tell me where i may have gone wrong with the child theme – (so that I don’t have to worry about clients updating etc and overwriting those customizations!)

    Here’s a detailed insight over what was changed in the latest update.

    On 1.0.6, my site was fairly skinny fixed-width. With this update, it’s widened. I can’t seem to figure out how to get it back to the way it was before (which I liked). I assume it’s because of the second-to-last bullet point on Alexander’s first post, “Changed default layout when sidebar is inactive from no-sidebars to full-width.” However, when I explicitly changed back to “no-sidebars,” the site stayed wide. Any ideas on how I might fix this? My site is, if that helps.



    Try to add this to your css section:

    .page-template-template-no-sidebars-php #wrapper,
    .page-template-template-blog-no-sidebars-php #wrapper,
    .page-template-template-portfolio-no-sidebars-php #wrapper { max-width:980px; }

    The max-width of 980px is just an example and can be adjusted to your like.

    Hmm, that didn’t work (I put it in the “Custom CSS” field in the Layout tab of Theme Options). I tried it with both “Content / Sidebar” and “No Sidebars”.

    Also, here’s something weird: When I had the layout as “No Sidebars” and I added a widget to the sidebar, it suddenly worked. The sidebar widget wasn’t displayed (as it shouldn’t have been), but the site shrank to the proper width.

    Update: When I have a widget in the sidebar and the layout is “No Sidebars,” then your custom CSS has effect.



    Didn’t you explicitly changed back to ‘no-sidebars’ in your previous post?

    Anyway, the #wrapper controls the width of the theme and can be adjusted accordingly, with or without sidebar.

    Sorry, that was confusing wording on my part. Here’s what works and doesn’t:

    Layout : Widget in sidebar? : Site is skinny? : Custom CSS works?
    No Sidebars : Yes : Yes : Yes
    No Sidebars : No : No : No
    Content / Sidebar : No : No : No

    It appears as though the problem which causes the custom CSS to fail is the same one causing the site to not be skinny when it should be.

    it also happens to my website blog when i update it on MLJ

    the blog CSS was not working properly causing the site to not work properly.
