Lots of theme updates
I got the homepage set, so it’s all ready to rock. Navigation needs some work. I also poked around and made some changes here and there, and started cleaning up a few areas as I spotted them. Definitely feel free to change anything I’ve done (esp things like the events page — http://wpshowdown.com/blog/category/events/)
You’ll probably want to add some more sample content to really get a feel for things – I stupidly entered a bunch on my laptop so that doesn’t help you much If you want to add an event, just make a post and assign it to the “Events” category, then a new box should appear below the post area where you enter date/location details.
Here’s some specific elements that I know definitely need work/building/attention:
- Comments (should be threaded, with gravatars)
- Sociable icons
- Post Ratings (I’d like to get this consistent on bbPress as well if possible, even though it’s a different plugin)
- Wiki-style revision history (e.g. at the bottom of this page when you’re logged in http://wpshowdown.com/about/)
- Contact form (you can see it in action here now http://wpshowdown.com/contact/)
- File uploads listings. I’ve uploaded a couple files here so you can see how (ugly) it is: http://wpshowdown.com/about/press/
- Homepage needs some filler content to see what’s what, and then an overhaul
- Forum pages (http://wpshowdown.com/forums/forum/general) need their form cleaned up a lot.
- Topic pages (http://wpshowdown.com/forums/topic/whats-everyone-doing) need all kinds of help Let’s get gravatar in there as well, perhaps something like http://mybabyourbaby.com/forums/topic/feature-requests-for-mybabyourbabycom)
- Need to specifically style the file uploads section (I need to confirm that it’s working as welll…).
- Links to people should go to the main blog, their author page. We’re going to set that up as a “global profile”. So something like http://wpshowdown.com/author/beaulebens/ although that doesn’t seem to work :-/
