We’re very proud to announce the release of the new version of MyWapBlog.com with big performance and code-base improvements. The magnitude of the improvement is not very obvious, however, as not too many new features have been added.
There were a lot of confusions regarding things in our little community (which isn’t little anymore) and I didn’t get a chance to speak yet. So here is what you should know about this upgrade:
- Color Scheme page has been retired – it is very difficult to maintain its code now that the themes are complicated. Please learn a little CSS and use the “Edit CSS” feature available from the “Appearance | Theme” page
- Customize Theme has been integrated with “Appearance | Theme” page – the page seemed redundant. Previously, different themes were just different CSSs, and the page structure remained same always. Now, it’s not so, all the themes (2 right now) labeled “New Themes” differ in terms of HTML elements as well as CSS, so older CSS (with older CSS selectors) won’t work with these new themes. Now, in the new version you have to think of themes in a different sense – like Blogger and Wordpress do – different themes mean different HTML element, CSS selectors, different everything. Still, old themes, are intact labeled as “Classic Themes”. If you want to use old CSS themes, select any one of these themes (as they only differ in CSS not in HTML elements)
As said, this update is more about the internal changes, the WHOLE user-blog (not admin area) code has been re-written. These changes will work as the base for many new features that we will keep adding. One of the major additions is the Templating system which is now being used to generate all pages internally. Thus enabling us to add “User-Editable” templates feature in future.
Note to CSS developers
Please use the new themes (under “New Themes” in “Appearance | Theme > Mobile”) as the basis for creating new CSS themes. Remember, now in the new version, you have to state which theme the user has to select (Classic or New and if New – which one) before pasting the CSS you created.
