Version 1.33 Fixing Footer

By Drew Strojny on April 14, 2009

Version 1.32 contained a bug that improperly formatted your footer stats code. Thanks to Andy for catching this and pointing it out. We are pushing out version 1.33 quickly to resolve this issue. If you haven’t downloaded 1.32 you should simply skip to 1.33. If you have downloaded and installed 1.32 the only changed file in 1.33 is /vigilance/footer.php.

Sorry for the inconvenience this might have caused anyone!

Vigilance 1.31 Released

By Drew Strojny on March 25, 2009

Note: A new version of the PRO child theme has also been released. Only 1 line has changed; line 76 in the header.php file. I encourage existing PRO members to just replace this line to avoid overwriting any existing customizations. Download version 1.21 of the PRO Child Theme.

Version 1.31 contains one important bug fix for some Vigilance users and a minor enhancement:

  • Bug Fix: Vigilance 1.30 implemented default “thin” sidebars along with a default “wide” sidebar. This created a problem because some users don’t actually use the “thin” sidebars. In version 1.30 the default “thin” sidebars no longer disappeared when left empty. This is corrected in 1.31.
  • Enhancement: Replaced an instance of is_home with is_front_page in the header. This is beneficial to users who do not use a “blog page” as their default home page.
