Templatic themes are ready for WordPress 3.5

Posted on

WordPress 3.5 “Elvin” is the latest edition of the software we all know and love. By far the most significant change in 3.5 is the revamped media screen. Even though drag n’ drop was available before, in WordPress 3.5 almost everything is done with that technique. For instance, in 3.4 and earlier versions you had to insert numerical values in order to sort (post gallery) images. In 3.5 the experience is much sleeker and most importantly, faster.

Another change that most of you will notice right away is the revamped welcome screen. The dashboard homepage now features a big “Customize Your Site” button that opens the theme customizer (normally available from Appearance -> Themes). This is especially handy for those members with Nightlife, Education Academy, Catalog or CoolCart since those themes don’t have regular theme options areas – all options are located inside the customizer.

Here’s a list of themes that have been updated with WordPress 3.5 in mind:

    With 3 updates required in the last week or so, we would love there to be an easier way to keep ‘Templatic Themes’ up to date. As other themes can be.

    1. Vedran says:

      Once most themes become powered by Tevolution updating will definitely be easier. Until that happens it will have to be done the old fashion way I’m afraid.

  2. Mark says:

    Presume that current ‘Tevolution’ ones still need updated manually.
    (therefore only suited to clients with good ongoing budgets)

    So a year or so, before all are ‘Tevolution’ & easier updates can then be added?

    Presuming 2012 was enough time to get yourselves together.
    And few ‘Major’ new themes are launched in 2013.

    1. Vedran says:

      Tevolution already supports automatic updates while themes (ok, theme :) ) powered by Tevolution display update notifications (but still need to be updated manually). Since most of the future updates/upgrades will happen to the plugin and not the child theme – this is good news. The problem with automatic updates in current themes is that something like that simply isn’t supported by our membership software. Changes are that not all themes will be updated to use Tevolution, however most of the popular ones (the ones the majority of members use) will.

    Great thanks.
    It’s largely about using the best version of a theme, by planning development, where possible.

    So we can definately use the theme with Tevolution now, without fear of a replacement in 2013

    And accept that it’s good as it’s going to get, on auto updates, for Templatic themes.
    For the foreseeable future

    Thanks again

      A lot time an effort went into creating Tevolutios, it’s built to last. It definitely won’t be replaced with something else in in the near future.

        Hi Vedran,
        I just ask because for me “update with WordPress 3.5 in mind” it seems like Templatic have updated their theme to include the new WP developers features and functions, to change deprecated functions etc. etc. (//codex.wordpress.org/Version_3.5).

        About deprecated functions it seems like GeoPlaces use the image_resize . But maybe I’m wrong, I’m not a developer.

        1. Vedran says:

          I’ve been on vacation for the last couple of days so it’s hard to talk about the current state of the theme….When it comes to image_resize function – there are some traces of it inside GeoPlaces but it’s not used as a primary way of displaying images. Also, the function was just deprecated now, it will take at least a couple of months before the function is actually removed from WordPress.

    I recently purchased the Job Board theme and I am working on a site for a client. I am using the WordPress 3.5 and have noticed a few things that make me think maybe it is not compatible with 3.5. Is this the case? Should I be using an earlier version of WP with Job Board? How long do you think it will be before there is another update for Job Board?


    1. Vedran says:

      Hi Becky
      Job Board should work fine with 3.5. If you notice something weird please create a topic in the forums and let us know, we’ll make sure it’s fixed ASAP. Thanks!
