Sample Web Sites


2/29/2012 – 3.0 release
  • Updated for WordPress 3.3.
  • Incorporated version 1.6.2 of Sandbox – this appears to be the final update for Sandbox.  The original author hasn’t updated it in almost three years.  The theme team has the latest version of it but it also appears they’re done updating it as well.
  • Numerous patches to Sandbox to eliminate WordPress deprecated function notices and PHP 5.x warnings.
  • Support for WordPress Navigation Menus!!!  This is a big one.  The theme will still support the old page navigation model if a new menu hasn’t been defined.
  • Lots of CSS clean up. In particular there were issues on the custom login page and with the WordPress Menu bar.
  • Support for the latest version of jQuery and jQuery UI which is now bundled with WordPress and no longer needs to be bundled with the theme or loaded from an external source.
  • Support for new Settings API.  Old settings will be migrated forward to the new model.
  • Dropped support for Wp-Facebook-Connect.  Facebook’s API changes to often to bother dealing with it.
12/23/2009 – 2.0 release
  • Incorporated much of the functionality from the CASL-Soccer theme.
  • Support for the Event Calendar 3 plugin has been dropped. EC3 was causing conflicts with Post Excerpts which resulted in displaying bad content in certain situations.
  • Support for the Calendar plugin along with a custom plugin called CalendarPlus which sits on top of Calendar has been added.  You can download CalendarPlus here.
  • Facebook Connect integration added to the Meta widget. If the Facebook Connect plugin is activated and initialized, the FB Connect login button or login status will display as part of the Meta widget.
