Hello, I'm Chris Murphy — I specialize in creating engaging, user-centric interactive experiences.

“Lemon Twist” v2.0 – Updated WordPress Theme

I've recently updated my WordPress theme - "Lemon Twist" 2.0 -- which you can see here. This release includes a number of features on top of the recently released "Lemon Twist" v1.5.

There are some significant updates to this WordPress theme, and most of the updates are intended to make the theme a little friendlier for new users to tweak and modify as they need. Some of the updates you may not notice come in the form of significant code refractoring, where I’ve optimized how components on page are rendered as well as how the typography is rendered across browsers, etc.

Perhaps the most visible addition to the theme is the sidebar where I’ve added box-toggling features through jQuery, as well as reformatted the “Recent Comments” box so the whole item is clickable.

Also, I’ve incorporated a simple feature into the comments display which allows you to quote any of the comments — there are some minor tweaks I am thinking of making to it, but it is functional and I’d like to hear what others may think of it.

I’m sure there are a half dozen other features that I’m probably forgetting to mention, but then again, most of the updates are code-based rather than design-based. I will release a build of this theme when I feel that I’ve tested it out with a live audience and tweaked the new features.

Let me know what you think!

UPDATE: As promised, I’m releasing Lemon Twist v2.0.36 theme. This is a significant update to the 1.5 and the 2.0 versions, the most current of which you see here. I’ve handled the majority of critical fixes and tweaked a number of IE6 specific bugs (not including [its lack of decent] PNG support). Here are some of the features that are available with this theme release:

  • Code refactoring – I’ve made some significant improvements over how portions of the page are structure, as well as cleaning up the directory structure. You will find the root directory of this theme free of all the extraneous files such as the sidebar includes. All of the sidebar includes, style sheets, images, and JavaScript libraries are now contained in an include directory.
  • Sidebar boxes now include a toggle feature to expand and collapse them — this is intended to give users some basic, temporary control over the layout. Future updates will include some persistence for the last state of each box.
  • Comments — the comments portion of this theme has been modified to display the comment form at the bottom of the comments stack rather than as a sidebar box. An additional feature — the “Commentors on this Post” box — was created as a means to quickly jump to a particular comment on the page or see who has commented at a glance. Also, as I’ve mentioned earlier, there is now a feature to allow you to quote a particular comment; the implementation is rudimentary at the moment, but I will extend it further if it proves useful.

Please let me know if you find bugs and such — leave a report on this post — and I will add it to my todo list :D

I hope that everyone finds this new theme fun to work with as much as I have enjoyed creating it!

    Chris it looks great! I love the addition of the javascript sidebar expansion controls and it looks like the CSS problem that was presenting itself in Safari (and IE 7) unless an unordered list was in use (such as on this comment bar) has been fixed as well. Great job! The subtle typography adjustments are great too.

    Oh, by the way, I figured out how to widgetize version 1.5 of the theme (and by widgetize, I mean by making all widgets look the same as the sidebar elements – though there is a CSS problem in all browsers with how the CSS displays a un-unordered list that doesn’t specifically use the ul-class tag — but that exists even if you build your own sidebar element — it’s easy to override for the default widgets). If you want the code, I can e-mail it to you. I did it more to see if I could, rather than out of any necessity (I’ve found that building my own sidebar elements is better for me because I like the flexibility), but it might be helpful to others.

    Christina, Consam, thanks for the comments on the updated theme. It looks as if I may have inadvertently introduced some bugs with this new build (one of the annoying hazzards of generating text files on a non- unix system).

    Christina, I would love to see how you generated the widgets in the sidebar. I’m sure there are some pretty nifty ways to work around the list bugs. This build uses jQuery to work around some styling issues (check out ui.js via you FF developer BST extension). Perhaps I could include you widget code with the 2.0 release?

    Well, I’m not sure if anyone has seen this theme in IE7; if you have you may have noticed some rather unusual characters displaying on certain components of the pages. It is also evident in FF. After a bit of hair pulling and some rather colorful word choices, I realized this was an issue not of the file encoding (UTF-8) but rather it was the result of a “feature” introduced in WordPress 2.1.x – joy.

    If you are unfamiliar with some of the upgrades in WordPress, I hope I can save you some time: WordPress introduced additional features into the wp-config file which allows developers to specify encoding types supported on recent database servers. This is actually petty great, but if you are upgrading from legacy versions of WordPress, be sure to use the new version of wp-config.

    In wp-config, find these lines:
    1. define(‘DB_CHARSET’,'utf-8′);
    2. define(‘DB_COLLATE’,”);

    Set these values to nothing which forces WordPress to default back to Latin-1. In most cases this should fix the encoding issues and help your pages to render properly.

    I do not have a deb server on m my iPod unfortunately, so I will have to wait :(

    Chris, the comment problem is fixed under IE 7 now, but it shows a new problem now, on the right hand side of the main box, a 5 pixels or more. Left side is also affected (main box of weblog, no coments). Also, the footer is bad as well.

    The comments begining of the bubbles show all white (like the one for the weblog author) as well.

    Rats! Forgot to add that “recent comments” is not translating the quotes. Also, the side boxes titles are thing and the text is not vertically centered.

    I know, IE 7 is junk… but most people uses it.

    I’ve solved some of the issues surrounding the display features in both IE and FF — but as David kindly pointed out, there are still some others such as the character entities which need to be addressed — especially with the new funtionality I’ve introduced into the commenting.

    Great looking design. Not sure if its already been mentioned, but the PNG graphics don’t work in IE <7.

    I notice you have the pngfix.js included, but this doesn’t work on background images in your css.

    Best to use the “filter” hack inside the css where any PNG’s are being used :-)

    Just a quick update for anyone interested: I’ve wrapped up some significant fixes to the theme, and refactored the sidebar components to handle some silly layout bugs in IE6. To be clear, I have no further plans to downgrade the PNG’s used in this theme to satisfy IE6′s lack of proper PNG support. And while I understand the ramifications behind such a statement, this is me drawing a line in the sand — so to speak ;)

    I am in the midst of completing work on a revised comment form layout which will have the form at the bottom of the comments rather than where it currently resides. This is intended to handle posts with a big collection of comments. I’ll detail some of the tweaks and how you can customize certain portions depending on your preferences.

    A link for Lemon Twist v2.0 will be available by Wednesday if all goes well.

    I truly appreciate everyone’s patience :D

    Well here *it* is — the updated Lemon Twist theme with 95% of the fixes and updates that I mentioned before. I have a few components which I want to build later, but these are going to come in the form of sidebar includes. One of the most notable updates to this theme is the comments area of this page. I’ve opted for a three column layout for it, so it feels less constricted, and to avoid having to scroll back to the top. In place of the original comment box, I’ve created a nifty little “Commentors on This Post” box, which is essentially a list with anchors to comments. In any case, I’ll leave this live for a couple of days before releasing the source.

    Special thanks to Christina Warren and David Collantes for their valuable input, and everyone else who has been very patient with me while I muck around with this theme :D

I would only really want to add some rhinos to the logos…its part of the nickname for our last name. Thoughts?

    Madalin, localization would certainly be appreciated :D I have thought of a three column version of this theme, but the proportions of the content would be quite different, but I may create a variation of my Lemon Lime theme which is a three column layout.

    Todd, I’ll be releasing the theme source tomorrow night, and if you take a look at the 1.5 release, I’ll have included the Photoshop files for you to make any modifications you might want.

    One question Chris — how do I enable the JQuery functionality? I see that the JS files are included in the theme, but even if I copy them to WP_Include/JS/JQuery, I can’t seem to get the menus to work. I’m missing something, and I’m sure it is dead simple, but I’m at a loss.

    I really like what you did to change the sidebar controls – it’ll make it much easier to add/organize customized sidebar elements. I might even try to see if I can get a less hackneyed widget solution working, once I get the JQuery thing working, that is.

    thanks Chris!

    Hey Christina, glad you like the updated theme :D as far as jQuery goes — check out the header.php file in the theme folder; it should have the following:

    
    [script type="text/javascript" src="http://www.yourdomain.com/wp-content/themes/Lemon_Twist/includes/js/jquery-1.2.1.pack.js"][/script]
    [script type="text/javascript" src="http://www.yourdomain.com/wp-content/themes/Lemon_Twist/includes/js/ui.js"][/script]
    

    Where “www.yourdomain.com” reflects your domain.

    The jQuery $(document).ready() method runs once the page is ready to be rendered and applies the additional functionality in “ui.js” :D

    I just installed the theme and the plugins (latest versions of them) and somehow my pages are beeing left out. For example i have a page that is called Omul (The man) with it’s slug set to /omul/ and when i’m going to that specific page i can see the latest post along with the small older posts list. Exactly on the main page. What’s to be done ?

    Oh, and also, it looks like jquery isnt working to me either even if the location is set correctly…

  30. Chris Murphy
    Date: January 31, 2008
    Time: 8:19 pm

    Madalin, you will need to assign one of the templates – in this case, the “about” templates – to your new page. If you create additional pages you can duplicate the “about” templates and simply rename it to “page.php” as well as the templates title at the beginning of the page (in the comment block). Ensure that you do not change the location of the jQuery library. Those files are to remain in the lemon twist directory, and not wp-includes. Also check to be sure the path to those files are being set correctly in header.php.

  31. Chris Murphy
    Date: January 31, 2008
    Time: 8:23 pm

    You may want to disable lightbox for the moment as I have not tested for potential conflicts with other javascript libraries, which may also be the reason you are having issues. Try the “thickbox” plugins for jQuery which should be compatible with this theme (was on my todo list).

    Igor, I am working on a sub/category/menu system (most of it is CSS), along with a handful of other components which I will release in an update later this month. I know that doesn’t help you at the moment, however, you can provide your own default styling for the sub items and still contain them in your own sidebar box for the moment :D

  44. Christina Wa…
    Date: February 12, 2008
    Time: 3:54 pm

    Jorge,
    I’ve pretty much got widgets working, the only problem I’m running into is getting WordPress to recognize that widget works. What I mean, is that if widgets are enabled on a different theme, those widgets will show up once you load Lemon Twist — but the widget option comes up “this theme does not support widgets” blah blah blah, I’ve got to play with it — but once that is figured out, yeah, it is pretty easy to enable. The difficult thing is setting the ul classes for formatting.

  45. Jorge Prieto…
    Date: February 12, 2008
    Time: 6:30 pm

    Is not that functions.php thing is it? I had that problem with another theme where WordPress wouldn’t recognize that the theme could use Widgets and I just had to make a functions.php and add some function there. After that, WordPress recognized that the theme could use widgets without problems. Getting the widgets to work was another problem altogether.

    Where could I get you widgetized version of the theme, Christina?

  46. Christina Wa…
    Date: February 12, 2008
    Time: 7:24 pm

    No, the functions file has been edited, that’s not the problem. The only thing I can think of is that the function that controls the various sidebar elements (like widgets, but not) in the new version of the theme is conflicting with WordPress being able to “recognize” the theme as widgetized. As soon as I figure out how to get widgets working, I’ll e-mail Chris and see if he can post a link on his site with the info (I’ll be happy to host any of the files myself) and post a comment back here.

  47. Chris Murphy

    Hey folks, I’ve been seeing a fair amount of chatter regarding widgetization for this theme — and as of the last version I have not included it for a couple of reasons; chief amongst those reasons is what I feel is WordPress’s in-elegant implementation of widgets in general. Christina Warren was kind enough to provide me with the basis of the widgetization code and I’ve been building on an implementation that works with this theme. To be clear, it will be an optional include in this theme until it is stable enough to be released as an integrated feature. I’m not going to go into too much detail about it, but suffice to say that it may have persistent Drag’n'Drop capabilities for your users.

  48. Jorge Prieto…
    Date: February 13, 2008
    Time: 9:14 am

    Well, I was able to widgetize your theme with a bit of tinkering. I think the main thing to do, now would be to format everything properly. Check out how it’s looking, so far, at my newbie blog: http://www.noggaddicts.com

  49. Jorge Prieto…

    I ended up taking off every sidebar element except for Search. Every item below that is a widget after formatting and whatnot. It needs a little more tweaking and that calendar is hideous but I think it’s coming along nicely.

  50. Jorge Prieto…
    Date: February 13, 2008
    Time: 4:03 pm

    After getting the widgets working and formatted a little better, I noticed that, somehow, the single article page was broken. I narrowed it down to the “Recent Posts” widget. After a lot of troubleshooting, I found that the single.php needed some tweaks.

    I also made a sidebar.php that all the pages include to keep the same sidebar throughout the site and make maintenance easier. Although I realize that you probably made the sidebar different for each page deliberately.

    Now, keep in mind that the extent of my experience with coding for WordPress is about two days of just experimenting and reading. So, I’m sure more experienced folk can come up with cleaner and more efficient ways of doing what I’ve done.

    Just let me know if you want my code.

In regards to theme useage, I’d be delighted to see implementations/ports/mods of the themes for other blogging platforms! Send me your links, I’m collecting them for a showcase :D

    Already downloaded it :) … I was having a hard time making it widget compatible … I have given up on it :) Anyway, it would be nice if the “Commentors on this Post” would display the name of the person only once. Like for example you, (as of the moment) you are being shown 17 times.
    I am not good in coding, but I’ll try to edit mine to show what I like. That is to only show each person once, so that visitors would know how much people are actively communicating in a single post.

    Sorry man! I’m pretty experienced with word press and like someone said above, the about page when clicked just goes to a search page or an error 404 page. I have created a page and selected an ‘about’ template and i just go around in circles. I have uploaded all the plug-ins requested and disabled all my old ones and it still does not display any of my pages only my posts!

    I am running WP Version 2.5.1 so maybe this is the cause? Any ideas? I really want to use this and ‘tweak’ it so I can show you what i can do, but I really don’t know why this is happening.

    Hi John, check out my earlier comment. I am running WP 2.5.1 as well, and as far as I can see the page shouldn’t be problematic; If this does not help, please let me know and I will look into it further.

    John, if the earlier approach does not work, try using the default page template — I just attempted both methods and they work.

    Hi Chris!
    Problem solved – the comment block in ‘search.php’ had ‘Template Name: About’ written in it. This was how received it when I downloaded the files – so a quick heads up to anyone having trouble – look in search.php and look at the first lines of code at the very top and look for the commented area in between the first php tags you should see Template Name: Search – if you see Template Name: About, then change it to Template Name:Search

    Hope this helps anyone! :)

    Just one more problem – how do I link the styles to my about page? The page loads without styling at the moment and i don’t want to delete anything that is crucial.

    Thanks man!

When I click about i am taken to a page that is a search results page, and the search result it shows is actually the page I am trying to display, but even when I click on it on this “search” page it does nothing. I have chose about as my page template and updated search.php as John described. Any help would be appreciated.

    Hey folks, I upgraded to WordPress v2.6.1 last week and the theme seems compatible. I haven’t been able to reproduce the permalink issue — if someone could be kind enough to point me to an example I can trouble shoot the proble. I am also working towards making this theme Widget ready (just figured out how to do it this week).
