Flat Bootstrap theme v1.2 is now available for download from the WordPress.org theme directory. If you are already using the theme, you should see the update is available from the WordPress admin. If you haven’t tried it out yet, now is a great time to do so.

I’m also proud to announce that Flat Bootstrap has been downloaded over 2,200 times so far. Not too shabby, but hopefully that number will increase more rapidly as my other child themes for it are accepted into the WordPress.org Theme Directory. You can check them all out here on our WordPress Themes page.

Flat Bootstrap WordPress Theme Version 1.2 Updates

  • Lined up fields on comment entry form. Set comment text box to not expand and shrink when it gains and loses focus.
  • Added padding to carousel captions
  • Set gray background on cover and section images so can see white text until image loads
  • Enhanced stripping of comments and empty <p> tags from content
  • Fix to page-fullwidthsubpages to display them all instead of just the first 6
  • Added page-postsnoheader page template
  • Moved page-top widget area to below the feature image as this looks nicer
  • Set a default footer nav menu to a smoothscroll to the Top and a link to Home. Can override by specifying your own footer nav menu.
  • Used WordPress v3.9 enhancement to specify crop on images and use alternate thumbnail sizes if our custom size not generated for a particular post/page
  • Changed readme.md to readme.txt for better compatibility with possible future WordPress theme directory features
  • Deprecated $theme_options and replaced it with $xsbf_theme_options. Please update your child themes as soon as possible.

  • Bumped version on css and js that was changed so the new versions would be downloaded for users that already have the files cached on their computer
