Yup, still in BETA until the Gummi Bears are plain and properly sized.
So, latest theme promises maximum flexibility and customization. Some things you will notice:
- Same clean layout that all the readers love
- Should be easier to navigate
- Return of page based navigation
- Can switch easily between dual side bar and single side bar layouts (more experimentation with that later)
- The return of the sharing tools – to stumble upon, delicious, reddit, twitter, and facebook
Things we are still working on:
- Accessibility for the visually impaired. Special thanks to all the users who have written in so far letting us know when you spot an issue – if you are still having issues with size ratios/text enlargement, please let us know.
- Page width – this theme allows us to play in a 960 space, however we configure it. It does not allow for a larger playground, though it may be possible if I upgrade to the developer theme. (For the WP devs in the house, we are messing around with the Platform theme.)
After this is done, we will continue working on:
- The podcast (Our kingdom for an uninterrupted hour!)
- Posts – we’ve missed a ton of things over the last few weeks, particularly since I’m traveling and Art is working
- Site survey – it’s been three years since the last one!
- Business updates (it’s hard out here for brown entrepreneurs)
- A new feature: ideas lab
- Email – we have 563 unread emails in the Racialicious inbox and about 700 more to respond to/add to the blog. Heaven help us.
