Black-Letterhead 1.6.2

I just released Black-Letterhead version 1.6.2. This latest version supports WordPress 2.9 scheduled for release within a week. WordPress 2.9 has a new feature called post thumbnails. It allows a thumbnail or an image to be displayed in each post. Previously, blog owners have been using plugins to have this feature available on their blogs.

Changes

Functions.php

To activate the post_thumbnail feature, the function has to be enabled in functions.php.

if (function_exists('add_theme_support')) add_theme_support('post-thumbnails');

Post.php

This entry is placed before the main content.

if (function_exists('the_post_thumbnail')) { the_post_thumbnail('post-thumbnail'); }

Single.php

This entry is the same as above, but in single page mode.

if (function_exists('the_post_thumbnail')) { the_post_thumbnail('post-thumbnail'); }

Index.php

Replaced navigation functions when viewing the home page.

 Footer.php

Edited copyright information to include year 2010. Users can modify footer.

  1. Hi,

    I’ve used your black-letterhead, which I love, but with the new WordPress 3.0, it doesn’t seem to be working. I can’t download an upgrade, the page doesn’t show up, and I’m wondering if you’re going to upgrade it so that it will work for 3.0? I hope so, otherwise, I have to choose a different theme and I really don’t want to do that. Please upgrade it, and please let me know if I can fix it because I really want to use it. It is the identity of my blog.

    Thanks!

    1. Hi Carrie,

      The latest version should be compliant with WordPress 3.0. I was running Black-Letterhead 1.6.2 on WordPress 3.0 last night and I didn’t have any issues. Do you have a link I can check?

  2. Hi Ulysses,

    Pl fix the download link at the bottom of the content.
    Link below the image is working 🙂

    Thanks for the wonderful theme.

  3. Hello,

    This is a great theme, and I love it, as well as my associates. Still playing with it, and wondering if there is a way to reduce the “distance” between “Get the Word Out” and the headline “Savvy Journalist….” That’s a lot of space, and one observer thinks the distance could be shortened.

  4. Hi man, this theme is awesome! But I can’t found it in the themes directory! and I don’t know why… I want to put it to another blog that I have but I can’t… Any Idea?

    Armos!

    Thank you very much

  5. Hi, how do I get rid of the “Preferences <– click" in the sidebar? My readers should have no choice in the matter. 🙂

  6. Hi, I would like to know if I want to add a plug in on Black-LetterHead theme. Can I do that? As it seems I cannot find a ‘plugin’ setting from the back-end. Can someone tell me what should I do? Much appreciated.
