Wide Lines version 0.9.5: New features
Previous Entry Next Entry

New features:
* Tag page support added (list and cloud formats).

The tags page (available on all journals at http://www.livejournal.com/users/exampleuser/tag) lists all of the tags currently in use. Wide Lines offers this page in two formats: a simple list, similar to the default style provided by most styles, and a tag cloud based on forresto's interpretation of del.icio.us's layout. The tag cloud shows relative tag use with sizes and colors (the colors are customizable: defaults are violet, blue, green, yellow, orange, and red) and provides most browsers with a tooltip over each tag showing the number of uses.

You can preview the two formats here: list format and cloud format.

Bug fixes:
* Recent comments link only shows when the page is viewed by its owner.
* Reply pages now show the icon bar instead of action text.

To upgrade or use Wide Lines as your style: The instructions for installing version 0.9.4 may be applied again for version 0.9.5 (the "current code" link is now 0.9.5). If you use this method of specifying the Wide Lines layout directly, you have already been upgraded.

All themes created for version 0.9 or 0.9.2 will continue to work in this version.

For the historical record: Code for version 0.9.5 (18 January 2006). The code at this link will not change.

The following fuctions have been added:
* TagsPage::print_body
* TagsPage::lay_css
The following properties have been added to the wizard interface:
* tags_linear
* text_tag_uses
* text_tags_title
* text_tags_header
* text_tags_link
* text_tags_manage
* color_tag_one
* color_tag_first
* color_tag_second
* color_tag_third

Thank you! I really like this implementation of the styled tag page. And I generally appreciate that you're continuing to develop this layout; I'm very much a fan.
