Sanitary Theme 0.2

Update: Version 0.3 is now available.

It has been 10 months to the day since I released Sanitary 0.1, a clean starting point for developing WordPress themes. An update is obviously overdue, so even though it will need to be updated again as soon as WordPress 3.0 comes out, I’m releasing Sanitary 0.2. It is still a work in progress, but as you can see from the changelog, there have been quite a few changes under the hood. The change that I’m most excited about is the move to HTML5, with support for even Internet Explorer (Thanks to Remy Sharp’s HTML5 enabling script).

Here’s the changelog:

deleted
– searchform.php
– categories.php
– archive.php
– archives.php

functions.php
– added thumbnail support

single.php
– changed h2 to h1 (single.php)

search.php
– replaced the seachform call with a form

404.php
– replaced the seachform with a widget area

archives.php
– replaced the seachform call with a form

archive.php
– replaced the seachform call with a form

comments.php
– added anchor tag to comments heading to allow links to the comments section (url.com/example.html#comments)
– added <small> tags around allowed tags
– removed double reference to number of comments
– changed ids to match names for comment form
– added label for comment textbox
– removed the “(required)” message from the “Name” and “Mail” labels (Not sure about this decision. Input welcome.)
– Changed “Mail” label to “Email”

all over the place
– added underscores to many ids (.post_meta, .post_navigation #comments_form)
– converted to html5 and included javascript to allow older browsers to render new tags properly
