As promised, here’s the new version. The changelog has all the details. My major aim with this theme was to smooth out the widget implementation slightly, add a couple of options people had requested, and improve the look and feel of the them.
We’ve expanded your options again with a new header, the imaginatively-titled Spots. If you go to the Tarski Options page and scroll down to the Miscellaneous Options, you’ll see the option to display your site’s tagline or description below the title.
If you don’t have a site description, don’t worry, there won’t be a huge and annoying gap between header and navigation.
This is mostly pretty dull stuff: some minor adjustments, rewriting a bit of CSS for the widgets plugin and whatnot.
The most obvious thing is probably the reworked Asides; I think they’re a lot more elegant like this, and these are fewer lines breaking up the flow of the page, which is how I originally envisioned things.
I’m going to do a more major rewrite of the code for the next major version, including a standardisation of the code for content areas and columns. This means two things in practice: some of your alternate styles will need rewriting, but it should be much easier to write them in future.
Tarski has a fair bit of legacy code and is much like a city that has had new buildings plonked down on old streets—it’s not broken as such, but future town planning will be a lot easier once we rip out some old foundations.
Keep an eye on the roadmap for the lowdown on the changes as I start to work on them.
