Theme, theme, which theme? Canvas still, Canvas 5.51 that is.

My backend programmer hates Canvas.  He uses a theme he wrote from scratch, and if I let him, will use that instead.  But each time that WooThemes updates Canvas I fall in love with it all over again.

They have just updated to 5.51.  I can’t even recall what number I was at when I started, but each time they upgrade, it is a fantastic improvement.  What I like is that no matter what new themes they put out, Canvas can be built into any one of them.  They now have full width sliders, which they had already put on other themes.

And they do listen to feedback, which is quite cool.

Finally full width header in WooThemes Canvas 5.2.2

I went to grab the latest Canvas and noticed it had come out yesterday.  I was pleasantly surprised to go through the settings and come across “full width header”.  (and this includes a full width footer as well)

Finally ,and at last, we can halve our full width header, but not with a boxed layout.  Oh well, I suppose I should be happy that I don’t have go into the code and change the header or footer for functions, or anything.

Now, to get full width headers with the boxed layout.

Thank you Woo, for listening.

Woothemes Canvas tip for moving the main menu

What I really need is a note book, and I would print out everything and just refer to it, but it is som uch easier to just have the web.  The problem is things keep getting moved, and one of those things that keeps getting moved is the Canvas tutorials.

I don’t mean the simple stuff, that I know how to do, and remember each time.  It is the fuction stuff, such as moving a menu around:

add_action( 'init', 'woo_custom_move_navigation', 10 );
function woo_custom_move_navigation () {
    // Remove main nav from the woo_header_after hook
    remove_action( 'woo_header_after','woo_nav', 10 );
    // Add main nav to the woo_header_inside hook
    add_action( 'woo_header_inside','woo_nav', 10 );
} // End woo_custom_move_navigation()

#navigation { float: right; width: auto; }
 

Now, who is going to remember that?  That list line, by the way, goes into the css.  Very important.

And I wouldn’t mind it if I could bookmark the page, and refer back to it, but woo keeps redesigning their site, and so, have put all these basic things away.  Right now it is on this page, but who knows were it will be next week?  So for now, it is here on my blog. :0
