I’ve updated Tolarski, my variable-width Tarski theme, to work with Tarski 3.1.2 and WordPress 3.2.x. This version is also downloadable as a ZIP file, and can be installed through the WordPress GUI.
Download Tolarski v.1.3.2 here.
To install, login to WordPress as admin and browse to Appearance -> Themes -> Install Themes -> Upload. I’d appreciate it if someone else could test this and leave feedback with any issues.
I don’t intend to turn Tolarski into a fully supported theme. But I am happy to answer questions. Some notes:
- Tolarski displays the full date and time on posts. Tarski only prints the date, and this is not configurable. You can disable this by commenting out the “add_action … init_tolarski_post_metadata” line at the bottom of functions.php.
- You must modify tolarski_headerimage() in functions.php. This specifies the 7 header images by filename, which should be placed in tolarski/headers/. Please don’t use my images on your live blog, but if you just want to play with the theme you can find links in the page source and manually download them. If you want to change the floating positions of the images, or use more/less of them, edit style.css.
Thank you so much! Downloaded, installed & activated! I was beginning to despair – I was trying to make my own child-theme for Tarski from scratch, & it just wasn’t happening…
http://heartsleaf.com – it’s all chaos right now, still trying to realign everything.
My previous fixed-width effort is at http://heartsleaf.com/wordpress/ – things are a bit more ordered there, but still rudimentary. I’m really new to all this.
By the way, I don’t seem to be able to edit the font and link colours in your stylesheet. Do I need to do that in the Tarski stylesheet (and therefore lose my changes with each Tarski upgrade)?
Thanks, I’m so chuffed to be moving forward with the blog again!
