Vigilance 1.43 fixes some minor bugs and includes a couple style enhancements. Feel free to read through the changelog for details.

Testing some new styling, what do you think?

I am testing out new post title header styling here on the demo blog. I have removed the emphasis on the post titles giving them a softer look. I have also adjusted the comments font-family, changing it to the default Georgia, Times New Roman. I am thinking of including it in the next Vigilance release. Let me know what you think of the new styling in the comments.

By Drew Strojny on September 18, 2009

Very Important: If upgrading please read and follow the upgrade instructions carefully.

Download Version 1.40: PRO Members head to the member download area. Free users grab your copy from the free download page.

This is an exciting day for Vigilance! The release of version 1.40 comes a little over a year after the initial 1.0 release. Vigilance has come a long way since then and today it is taking a monumental step forward.

This is by far the biggest, boldest, and best update in Vigilance history. The list of features, enhancements, and bug fixes is enormous. The best part: no bloat. I was focused on keeping the code clean and lightweight. I was also determined to improve the aesthetics and usability of Vigilance with this release. Let’s take a look at what’s new.

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.
