Almost everyone knows what the customizer is, a useful feature, introduced few versions ago, for customizing the blog with a live preview. It’s a really powerful tool!
Unfortunately the WP development team decided to dismiss the classic admin pages for the custom header and custom background in favor of the customizer (as described in this article: WordPress 4.1 to Remove Custom Background and Header Admin Screens).
I say “unfortunately” because it affects two of our themes: Fastfood and Shiword. Both themes use a modified page for handling their complex custom backgrounds. Moreover Fastfood adds an additional feature (the header slider) to the custom header page.

Those admin pages are now gone forever… well, not actually. They’re simply hidden and apparently unattainable.

We’re working hard to update our themes to be fully compatible with the customizer, but until then, here’s a small plugin for getting back the links to the classic admin pages for the header and the background:

TB Old-fashioned Header and Background

Don’t worry, the plugin does nothing but adding some few css rules to the admin side 😉

Quickbar plugin

Categories: Annunci, Plugin WordPress
Comments: 5 Comments

Quick-menus has always been a distinctive characteristic of TB’s themes, since the first, unknown, The Black City.
Quickbar plugin was developed to give people, that don’t want a TB theme, a rapid access tool to their blog contents, without using a TB theme.
The plugin is somehow different from the theme’s quickbar as all the fix elements (last posts, comments and categories), were removed and replaced by a widget “box”. This will give admins the possibility to put what they want in constant evidence without “forcing” the user to scroll the page.
