  • Just updated to 2.8.4 and all seems well. I have before and after screenshots, but am not sure how to upload/attach… Anyway, it looks good. Some of the text related to the comments section is a bit oversized compared to the rest of the page, but I may be able to toy with some custom CSS for that.

    Syahir, I don’t have time to update Graphene and then roll it back again. Go to Levantium.com and look at the home page excerpts. The new version is identical except that the images alongside the excerpts are missing and the excerpt fills the full width of the space available. Also font sizes generally throughout the site are larger. It did not appear that my custom CSS settings had changed (they were pretty minor anyway). If I find time, I’ll do the before/after screenshots…

    I will try to do so tomorrow. I’ll take a before (2.8.2) screenshot of the home page and maybe a post, and then the after versions with 2.8.3. Thanks!

    I’d like to wait to hear what the Graphene folks say. I have invested a lot of time and energy into customizing this site, and I’ve already had to abandon several features I really liked in the early versions (rounded corners, background/watermark images on posts and the home page, a nice graphics calendar, etc.). I know everything is moving towards fluid/adaptive layouts, but I wish they’d left in some of the features that made this theme stand out from its competitors…

    What would I need to do if I wanted to use my own custom double-quote graphic?

    #31666

    Given the number of issues with version 1.8 reported by early upgraders, are you planning to release an updated version, or is it up to each user to correct problems as they are discovered?

    I think I’ll stick with 1.7 until I get a definitive ok that most of the known issues are resolved…

    OK, followed the instructions on another post and recovered prior version. Pretty scary there for a while…

    #28054

    Fixed it. Had to change CSS to this:

    .sidebar h3 {

    font-size: 14px;

    padding-bottom: 5px;

    padding-top: 5px;

    filter: progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.gradient(enabled=false) /; /* IE8+9 */

    }

    .sidebar div.sidebar-wrap h3 {

    filter: progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.gradient(enabled=false) /; /* IE8+9 */

    background-image: url(“http://levantium.com/images/flag.gif”);

    background-position: 0 0;

    background-repeat: no-repeat;

    text-shadow: none;

    color: #fff;

    }

    I opted for this plugin: HTML in Author Bio

    Nothing fancy — you have to embed your own HTML tags for paragraphs (it won’t convert line breaks for you), but it seems to work as advertised. For example, this author page — http://levantium.com/author/rayclose/ — has both paragraph tags and a link tag to the source of the bio used.

    Now that is pretty funny! I think I’ll explore the plugin angle first to see if something is available. Yes, I could create a bio page for each contributor, and then link to the standard author’s page (sans bio). This is not a BIG deal, just an intellectual challenge.
