It’s been a long time since I made major changes to SWIFT, it’s time to add some cool and fancy features to SWIFT making the best use of new features added to WordPress3.0. Here are what I planned for the update. Please post your suggestions and ideas.
- Fix the image resize problem.
- Separate comments, trackbacks, and pings.
- Change the styling of blockquote.
- Add support to menus.
- A widget to share links of your profiles on major social media sites.
- Some animations to dropdown menus.
- Change the default font of the theme, how do you like the font of this site?
- Styling the calendar widget correctly.
- Custom template for images uploaded.
- Custom meta box to upload post thumbnail on write post page.
- Option to upload background images and logo from the options page.
- AJAX comments. I have been trying to add it since a long time, but couldn’t make it. I hope I can find some good tutorials on how to do this
- Reply with quote option in comments.
- Add style sheet to post editor, so that your post looks exactly the way it look in your editor.
- I’m beginning to dislike the social media icons at the end of the post. I might change them or remove them completely.
- I want to add some useful post types, please drop in your ideas. (One thing I can think of at the moment is a template to publish weekly or monthly roundups)
If you want a new feature or want to report a bug, this is the best time. Also if you come across a blog with beautifully styled footer, blockquote, lists, author template, 404 template, has some cool js features or anything that you like post the links in comments. Lets make SWIFT the best WordPress theme
PS1: I recently changed the name of my other blog, GenisuHackers.Com to TechBU.com and converted it into a revenue sharing blog. I made a BuddyPress compatible version of SWIFT for that blog, let me know how you like it and post your opinion.
PS2: Do you want the BuddyPress version of SWIFT to be made public?
Ps3: Italicized features in the above list are already implemented
