Photonic Version 1.54 – Lightweight Gesture Support, Translations

I have just released version 1.54 of Photonic. This is a minor version with the following changes:

  1. I changed the added gesture script for PrettyPhoto, Colorbox and Fancybox from TouchSwipe to TouchWipe. This started out as a leap of faith, given that TouchWipe doesn’t work on its homepage itself, but in the end it was easier than I had expected. Switching to TouchWipe saves over 10KB of JavaScript, and I was able to bundle this within Photonic’s main script itself, thereby removing the option for enabling touch support. As of now, each of the abovementioned lightboxes is touch-enabled.
  2. While adding the support for authkey for Picasa albums I had forgotten to add this in the shortcode generator. This has been remedied.
  3. I added the “Text Domain” tag to the theme’s readme file. This makes it possible for contributors to do translations directly on

I also submitted a small updated to Suffusion, mainly to correct some issues on responsive layouts. That hasn’t been approved yet, but should be, hopefully soon.

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
