Semiologic theme and CMS, v.2.4

In resources — More feature-rich and more usable than ever, introducing the Semiologic theme and CMS, v.2.4.

From the change log:

  • Bug fix (print link plugin)
  • Changed the posted/updated caption
  • Many, many new 3rd party plugin integration
  • Complete redo of the nav menu management

The complete do-nothing 1-click install plugin list now includes:

  • Theme switcher
  • Jerome’s Keywords
  • Related Posts
  • Translator
  • Basic Bilingual
  • Blogtimes, with and without icons
  • Touched
  • Live Comment Preview
  • Countdown
  • Gravatar
  • WP-Hashcash
  • WP-Morph
  • And many, many more

The upcoming pro version further extends the list:

  • Flickr gallery
  • Rich links and archives templates
  • Newsletter manager

There are two noteworthy differences with v.2.3 when it comes to upgrading:

  • To ease localization, I’ve replaced the sem-theme-config.php file in the plugin’s folder with a config.php and a caption.php file in the theme’s folder
  • I’ve changed the syntax to add items to the navigation menus, to let you add external links to these menus (see the documentation in config.php)

Comments on Semiologic theme and CMS, v.2.4

  1. I’m trying to install your new version in a completely new site with a new database…I’m getting this message

    Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in /my site/mysite/mysite/mysite/mysite/wp-content/plugins/
    sem-theme/sem-theme.php on line 167.

    Hope you can help me…thanks

  2. I’m getting the following error on my Syndicate:

    This plugin requires php’s built-in XSLT parser. Contact your host about the problem, or download and manually install the obsolete plugin.

    Any thoughts?

  3. One thought, yes.

    This plugin requires php’s built-in XSLT parser. Contact your host about the problem, or download and manually install the obsolete plugin.

    What would be your suggestion to rephrase this to make you either:

    – contact your host about the problem; or
    – manually download and install the obsolete plugin

  4. You built a newsletter manager into this theme? Brillian. Does it work like ExpressionEngine’s built-in mailing list feature? Can this be released as a stand-alone plugin?

  5. One more quick question. I’ve read through the documentation on your various versions of this plugin. If you are using V2.2, is there an easy way to customize the sidebar to add something to it?

    Thanks!

  6. I’ve no plans to release the newsletter manager as a stand-alone plugin at the moment. Then again, I might consider it later.

    Regarding Expression Engine, I’ve never tried it so I cannot really tell how the newsletter manager compares.

    To customize the sidebar, just insert html code as relevant.

  7. I am overwhelmed at the tremendous resources more talented individuals than myself place before us all in Wordpress and the Semiologic theme/cms.

    Many thanks Denis – I’ll be buying the pro version I’m sure…
