Wallow Theme by TwoBeers Crew

Le caratteristiche di questo nuovo tema per WordPress sono:

  • flexible width : avete uno schermo widescreen? il blog occuperà tutto lo spazio disponibile, senza bande vuote ai lati
  • two columns : con due colonne a vostra disposizione potrete organizzare i vostri contenuti in modo chiaro e semplice
  • widgets ready : esistono migliaia di widgets belli e utili. Perchè non usarli? Wallow  li supporta
  • widgets integrati : Wallow mette a disposizione 5 widget: Articoli più popolari, Attività recenti, Categorie più popolari, Link rapidi (una revisione del classico meta), Ultimi commentatori
  • theme options : un blog è personale, quindi deve anche essere personalizzabile. Ovvio!
  • translation ready : Wallow è pronto per essere tradotto in altre lingue (oltre all’inglese e l’italiano)
  • right sidebar : una barra laterale bella comoda è quel che ci vuole per i vostri contenuti extra
  • WP requests met : conforme agli standard di WordPress
  • Gravatars support : il vostro Gravatar vi segue ovunque
  • “quickbar” navigation : con la “quickbar” di Wallow, navigare attraverso il blog non è mai stato così facile e veloce
  • multiple styles : Wallow ha 6 varianti di stile predefinite, ma con il “theme mixer” il vostro blog sarà unico


Wallow nasce da un’idea del solito Jimo (uff, noioso con tutta questa creatività ;)), arricchita dal confronto con il solito V.I. (uff, noioso con tutta questa mancanza di iniziativa ;)) e si presenta come un multi-tema in 4 varianti predefinite (air, fire, earth, water) a cui è stata aggiunta la possibilità di combinare tra di loro i vari elementi andando a creare la combinazione che più ci si addice.

L’idea iniziale era quella di creare un nuovo singolo tema senza troppi fronzoli – tanto che è basato sul tema di default di WordPress – ma Jimo si è presentato con troppe varianti che non meritavano di essere scartate (2 inizialmente), al che è stato deciso di riunirle in un unico tema. I nomi dei primi 2 stili erano blu e fire, da lì è balenata l’idea di realizzare altre 2 varianti e interpretare a modo nostro i 4 elementi.

wallow_air

wallow_earth

wallow_fire

wallow_water

Garantire all’utilizzatore 4 diversi stili però non ci sembrava abbastanza 8O , abbiamo quindi deciso di spezzare le varie parti del tema rendendole indipendenti:

  • stile generale
  • sidebar
  • menù pagine
  • menù a scomparsa
  • quickbar
  • avatar

dando la possibilità di associare uno stile ad ogni singola parte, secondo le preferenze dell’utente.

Uno dei due strumenti che caratterizzano il tema è infatti il “theme mixer“, ovvero un configuratore del tema (presente nella sezione admin->Aspetto->Opzioni tema) attraverso il quale è possibile modificare l’aspetto del blog. Una piccola finestra di preview permette inoltre di gustare un’anteprima delle diverse combinazioni.

options

Altro strumento che contraddistingue questo nuovo tema by TwoBeers, è la “quickbar“. Si tratta – come suggerisce il nome – di una barra fissa (in fondo alla finestra del browser) che racchiude alcune informazioni utili ed un menu a scomparsa con un sacco di links e scorciatoie per muoversi rapidamente all’interno del blog.

L’adozione dei MooTools garantisce animazioni leggere, semplici e gradevoli. Ovviamente il tema è stato sviluppato per essere usato anche senza supporto JavaScript ed è compatibile con tutti i maggiori browser, senza ricorrere a nessun hack. L’HTML e i CSS sono tutti risultati validi secondo gli standard internazionali W3C.

NOTE: Dalla versione 0.40 sono state introdotte altre due opzioni:

  • possibilità di disabilitare la “quickbar”
  • possibilità di disabilitare le animazioni javascript


AmericanEnglish-Flag TwoBeers Crew is proud to present Wallow, a new theme for WordPress.
Theme features:

  • Flexible width: fits to everithing, even widescreen! No more empty spaces on yours readers screens.
  • Two columns: everithing find it’s own place with the two columns at your disposal
  • Widgets ready: there are thousands of beautiful and useful widgets that Wallow can support. Why don’t you use them?
  • 5 new widgets: Popular Posts, User quick links (meta), Latest comment authors, Latest activity (latest commented posts), Popular Categories
  • Theme options: a blog is personal, so it must also be customizable. Obvious!
  • Multiple styles: Wallow has 6 different styles, but with the “theme mixer” (*), your blog will be unique
  • “Quickbar” (**), navigation: with Wallow’s “quickbar”, browse through the blog has never been easier and faster
  • Translation ready: Wallow is ready to be translated into other languages (English and Italian are included)
  • Right sidebar: a pretty comfortable sidebar is what you need for your extra content
  • WP requests met: standards-compliant WordPress
  • Support Gravatars: your gravatar follows you everywhere

(*) The “theme mixer” is a theme style configurator (you can find it in the admin section-> Appearance-> Theme Options), that can be used tochange the look of every part of your blog (main style, sidebar, pages menu, popup menu, quickbar and avatar). A small preview window allows you to enjoy the different combinations.

(**) The “quickbar” is a fixed bar, at the bottom of the browser window, that contains some useful information and a popup menu with lots of links and shortcuts to move quickly through the blog.

NOTES: From version 0.40 added the possibility to enable/disable js animations and the quickbar (both are enabled by default).

    P.S. ultimi ritocchi per sistemare alcuni bug segnalati dallo staff di WordPress e ci siamo!!!
    Pazientate fiduciosi

  2. Jimo says:

    Ovviamente nel frattempo è uscito WordPress 3.0 …
    Questa nuova versione introduce un sacco di novità e apporta altrettante modifiche alle versioni precedenti.

    Dobbiamo quindi verificare la compatibilità del tema col nuovo “motore”, sistemare i problemi e aggiungere le nuove funzioni che WP 3.0 mette a disposizione.

    Ma non temete, siamo dei professionisti ;) e tra breve Wallow vedrà la luce!

  3. Franky says:

    Hi there,

    great theme! i will use it for a new website.

    But, in IE8 there are some script-errors with the javascripts (also in kompatible-mode).

    Perhaps you can fix that? Would be great!!!

    Thx and greetz
    Frank :-)

    • Jimo says:

      hello Franky,
      I tried to trap script errors in IE8 (even in compatibility mode), but I really didn’t find them. On my PC everything works fine without any bug. However, for safety I have already made some little changes to the js code. The new version will be available as soon as will be approved.
      Thanks for your help and for using our theme ;)
      bye
      Jimo

  4. Franky says:

    btw… is it possible, toviem the comment-form only on articles, not on pages?

    bye
    Frank :-)

    • V.I. says:

      Hi Franky,
      thanks for your compliments, this is our first work and we really appreciate them :).
      To disable comment form in pages just disable comments in post-edit mode (uder discussions options you can check for enable/disable comments or trackbacks).
      My friend Jimo will reply you soon about js errors.
      Cheers

  5. Franky says:

    can you give me your email? The page isnt online yet and has ht-access-login.

    Than i will send you the link with login data.

  6. Jimo says:

    Thx Frank!
    For all those who have encountered the same problems with animations js, the issue is:

    Some plugins use the framework jQuery which is in conflict with the MooTools (used in the theme)

    The solution is to add the following code in the footer.php, just before <?php wp_footer(); ?>

    <script type="text/javascript">
    /* <![CDATA[ */
    jQuery.noConflict();
    /* ]]> */
    </script>
    

    Everything should work fine

  7. Franky says:

    Hi friends,

    i want to put a slideshow on the frontpage.

    You have any suggestions which is the best to use?

    There are so many and i dont know whats the best……

    cheers
    Frank

    • Franky says:

      i got now a very good slider. Called easing slider.

      Works perfect with FF and Opera. But not on IE8. There are the pictures not shown.

      When i use a standard theme, everything is ok and works.

      Not so with WALLOW.

      Do you have any idea, why IE7/8 is not showing any pictures? I have deactivated all plugins, but without success.

      Perhaps a conflict with something in your theme?

      Help would be great!
      Thx, Frank

  8. Phil says:

    Hi.

    Thanks for this great template: I just installed Wallow on http://www.cybernews.be.

    Got a question, though: how can I add a menu item next to “Home” and “About us”? Like you did on this site with “Downloads, “Wallpapers” and “Shop”…?

    Thanks a lot.

    Phil

    • Jimo says:

      Hi Phil,
      you can add items in menu by a tool introduced by WordPress team in their new version 3.0.
      You obviously have to update you WordPress (if not yet) to version 3.0, then go to admin page -> themes -> menu
      There you can build up your menu
      Thanks for compliments and for using our theme
      Bye!

  9. Marian says:

    Nice theme maybe i will use for my new website :D

  10. Jimo says:

    jQuery does really hate MooTools ;) , so if you have problems with your plugins (using jQuery) try this:

    -download this file Wallow – No Javascript Animation
    -replace “header.php” in your theme folder with the file in zip

    This will deactivate animations in menus and comments.

    In next release – when we will be back from holidays :) – we will fix this bug.

    • Franky says:

      hmmm, i try this header.php, but without success. Same problem with IE8.

      Seems i also need holidays……. :-()

  11. carlos says:

    Hi,

    I really love your WordPress theme, and before I install it I want to make sure it supports Cincopa’s Plugin

    (http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/post-rich-videos-and-photos-galleries/)

    as this is the solution I’m going to use to manage my Media.

    Thanks,

    Carlos

  12. Jarrin says:

    Hi,

    First of all, I really like your Theme!
    But I have a question about it. Is it possible to remove the menu at the bottom?
    It looks fine, but I don’t need it ;)

    Thanks,
    Jarrin

    • Jimo says:

      Hi Jarrin,
      thanks for your suggestion. We had already thought about this option, so we will introduce it in the next release.
      Bye

  13. Moi says:

    Will you be making this compatible with BuddyPress in the future?

    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/buddypress/

    Thanks!

  14. Franky says:

    oups.. wrong code. Again:

    Hi friends,

    another small problem.

    Can you tell me please, where the is coming from? Its not from the plugin.

    <!-- wp-jquery-lightbox, a WordPress plugin by ulfben --><strong></strong><script>
    

    This code is producing a validation error and i have no idea, where it comes from.

    Thx, Frank

  15. JInx says:

    Hi

    I have a question.. I want to reduce the height of the image head.png .
    I want to make it 50 px. I changed the size of the image and uploaded again but its taking 77px.

    And also can i change the footer height?
    I could not find its height anywhere I can change..
    Thanks
    J

  16. JInx says:

    got it…it was pages_fire.css

  17. Ken Nelan says:

    First, thank you ever so much for such creativity and design. I was so very happy to find this wonderful theme.

    Next, I wonder if there is a way to port that bottom bar over to other themes? I’ve been looking at the code, and almost got it working except that it remained at the top of the screen, and I could never get the images to apply properly.

    Do you have any suggestions which may help to port that bar over to other themes? (It would actually be great to have it as an extension.

    Thank you again for all your hard work!!!

  18. Franky says:

    Hi Friends,

    suggestion for the next release:

    Please highlight the current page in the navigation menu, who the user actually is.

    Looks better :-)

    thx, Frank

  20. Franky says:

    Hi friends,

    how can i sort the page order?

    Thx, Frank

    • V.I. says:

      Hi Frank
      if you mean the default top pages menu there are 2 ways:
      - the first is the simplest -> use the new WP menu function to create your own ;) ;
      - otherwise you have to edit functions.php file -> line 85 ->

      $pages = get_pages('parent=0');

      change to

      $pages = get_pages('parent=0&sort=desc');

      (‘asc’ is the default value)
      Remember you will have to do this every theme update

  21. V.I. says:

    End of holidays… :(
    Thaks everyone for your great support, soon we’ll release a new version of wallow (thanks to jimo’s great work)

  22. Franky says:

    sers, Frank

    • V.I. says:

      Hi Frank, can you please translate it in english ;)

      • Franky says:

        no sorry, but i dont have english version of IE8.

        But if you have, you can see the error on the left bottom in the browser….

      • V.I. says:

        You’re right.
        I can see the error in your site, but here and in our test site it doesn’t show up… maybe some conflct with other plugins.
        The new version of wallow has an improved compatibilty with other js script. Later I’ll talk to Jimo and see if we can sent you a pre-release copy of the theme so you can check it out.

  23. Franky says:

    great, thx!

  24. V.I. says:

    Version 0.44 has been released.
    Many thanks to Franky for his great support and beta testing :)

    P.S. We forgot to highlight current page… sorry Frank ;)

  25. V.I. says:

    @BelchSpeak (http://www.twobeers.net/annunci/holidays/comment-page-1#comment-399)
    can you provide a link to the page where the comment form is not showing? I’ve surf your site for a while and I didn’t encountered the problem.
    Cheers

  26. Franky says:

    Hi friends,

    you can see a final wallow-site at www.schachplatz.de.

    Thx for that great theme! Its the best!

    sers, Frank :-)

    • Jimo says:

      I really like this site! The dark mod of Wallow looks so cool. If only I knew playing chess…. ;)
      Anyway, we have to thank you for your great help!!
      Bye, Jimo

  27. How can I edit the menu on the QuickBar
    It is so cool but I want it to have items that are similar to my top menu which is controlled through the appearance tab in the backend.

    • V.I. says:

      Hi Brian, we’re working on the Quickbar to make it a plugin (http://www.twobeers.net/annunci/quickbar-plugin).
      A beta of the plugin will be released through our blog within a few days.
      The plugin will give blog admins the possibility to add widgets, set colors and the default gravatar.
      Hope this help.
      Bye

    Oh well your theme, very beautiful.

  29. Jacky says:

    Morning! Seems like I am kind of late.
    I love your theme and I am using it for my site.
    But I have a couple of problems and questions:

    1. I could not load the featured content gallery, it only shows a black box border. Could you help me figuring it out?
    2. I want to change the header’s font and location or replace it with an image. Can I do that?
    3. For some reason, I would love to have a smaller menu bar on the top, do you think it’s possible to change it and how would I do that?
    4. Can I also change the font on the sidebar to regular Capitals and regular font?

    Thank you so much!

    • V.I. says:

      Hi Jacky,
      please always provide a url to your site, thanks.
      The new version of wallow has just been released, a couple of minutes ago, please update it you’ll find interesting new features.
      1 – provide a link to you site as I can’t understand wich featured gallery you’re talking about.
      2 – v 0.46.4 add the possibiliti to replace text with images, just set header image under appearence menu
      3 – open style.css, find

      #pages {
          margin-left: -10px;
          padding: 10px 30% 40px 5%;
          z-index: 2;
      }

      and change 40px value in padding to a smaller one eg:

       padding: 10px 30% 10px 5%;

      4 – to modify sidebar font add, at the end of style.css

      #sidebarbody {
          font-family: 'yourRegularFont';
      }

      Cheers

  36. daniel says:

    I just started with WP and installed your template which suited me just fine -now since the new update there are some options missing – custom code for example – so either I have to find a new one or re-install the old one.
    Any reasons for this removals – I though update means more functions , faster , more stable et… !?

    • V.I. says:

      Hi daniel,
      last update didn’t remove anithing, was just a WP 3.3 compatibility fix.
      What do you mean with “custom code”? wallow doesn’t have the possibility to add custom code…

  37. mars2000 says:

    I’ve just switched from Shiword to Wallow theme. The main reason is that I’ll activate tomorrow the SimplePress forum. This forum is not compatible with Shiword when you are not logged : the external scrollbar does not appear, I guess it’s a conflict between 2 Javascripts. No any problem with Wallow, with the big advantage that my widescreen is now very happy, and me too of course ! :)

  38. Snake says:

    Hi

    Is there a way of being able to change the colour of the posts box?

    Cheers

    • V.I. says:

      Hi,
      wallow has several default skins, you can play with them in theme options making your custom combinations.
      If that is not enougth, you should manually modify .css files but this require some css skill.
      Cheers

      • Snake says:

        I have been able to customise the theme using the options but I cannot find the post box to be able to change it. What is it called and where in the css pages is it?

        • V.I. says:

          A post could have the following classes

          post type-post status-publish format-standard hentry category-aciform category-cat-a category-cat-b category-cat-c category-sub tag-tag1 tag-tag2 tag-tag3

          and find out which css modify is related to the skin you’ve set (.css files are located inside wp-content\themes\wallow\css\).
          I suggest you to have a look at this guide http://youtu.be/3KdNRZS-uSg

          • Snake says:

            Cheers. I’ve found it. You’ve used images rather than a box that the colour can be changed on.

  39. Gayle says:

    Hi – Great themes, thank you! I finally decided to use the Wallo theme. I am having trouble to get the excerpts and the “read more” links working on the posts. Tried to ad the code from the codex help – but obviously don’t know what I am doing. Would you be able to help? I don’t want to have to change the theme.

    site: 2boutthere.com

    • V.I. says:

      Hi Gayle,
      I have a look at your site, but I can’t find out any posts: they just have the title and no content…
      BTW the “read more” work only for posts, not pages, and you have to set it manually in post edit mode (adding

      <!--more-->

      ), or writing an excerpt in the dedicated box.
      You can also activate the automatic excerpt through theme options (Contents tab), and choose the excerpt length.
      Hope it helps

    Hi there,

    Thanks for making the super Wallow theme. I really love it!
    There is just one little thing, that keeps coming back.

    Warning: implode() [function.implode]: Invalid arguments passed in /home/opoorl1g/public_html/Initiatiefjongeveteranen.nl/wp-content/themes/wallow/functions.php on line 757

    Can you tell me what i’m doing wrong?

  44. Ben says:

    In the quickbar “Today” does not get translated. Is it possible that it is hardcoded in the file “wallow/lib/quickbar.php”? I see the following in that file from line 97.


    function date() {

    printf( __( 'Today is %1$s%2$s', 'wallow' ), date_i18n( __( 'l', 'wallow' ) ), date_i18n( get_option( 'date_format' ) ) );

    }

    • ilmaren says:

      Hi Ben,
      you should check your language file, maybe is missing the translation for ‘Today is %1$s%2$s’.

      Hope it helps
      Cheers

      P.S. Please read our TOS

      • Ben says:

        Thank you for your reply!

        It’s not shown in the code I copy-pasted but there’s a HTML break tag () between %1$s and %2$s That tag had in my translation file the XHTML style with the extra / (forward slash). I added that slash in the php file (was easier for me) and that did the trick.

        Strange that the original translator did not notice that… oh well… it’s fixed for me now.

  45. Ben says:

    I’ve got some doubts about the QR codes, they cause a lot of blank space. Is there a way to have text wrapped around them? Or have them removed altogether?
