There were three major additions to HTML5Press 2.1, including fuzzy timestamps, a built-in Twitter widget, and support for WordPress custom backgrounds. Gregory C left a comment a few days ago that made me decide to add support for WordPress custom backgrounds. It was a simple enough thing to add, not sure why I didn’t add support for custom backgrounds earlier.
The featured photo for this post is just a screenshot of the Twitter widget options. That widget may look familiar to you. It’s nothing but a slightly modified version of Simple Twitter Widget by Matthias Siegal. I made some modifications to his plugin to include the HTML5 time element and to also make use of timeago for fuzzy timestamps.
Fuzzy timestamps are global in HTML5Press. Dates/times on posts, pages, comments, and the twitter widget will all be shown as fuzzy timestamps instead of the actual date/time. Mousing over the fuzzy timestamp will reveal the true date/time.
Some other, more minor changes and fixes:
- Fix the Allerta font, it was pulling the wrong font from Google
- Include the lightbox effect on gallery images and include them as a set
- Remove HTML5Press options from Appearance menu and give it it’s own menu.
