SWIFT v5.0 is coming on 11th JAN, beta version available for download.

Hello Swiftlers,

Belated wishes for the new year.

Most of the work of version 5.0 is done except for

  • Banner ad integration.
  • Page templates.
  • RSS links and search box in navigation area.
  • Subscribe widget.

This version is called beta only because the above mentioned features are yet to be added.ย  Core of the theme is very stable, you can safely use this on your blog.

Installation instructions:

Just like any other wordpress theme.

Post installation steps:

Change the permissions of swift/cache folder to 777 (755 in case of some hosts) and custom-styles.css to 666.

Here is a tutorial on how to change file permissions in case if you need it.

  1. Hi, i’m using this theme and I think it’s great but i would like to know if there’s any chanche that my posts can look like on the home page in a category. for example when i go to category “Themes” i don’t want the posts to be aranged one under another…. i want them in stylish boxes like on the home page

  2. Is there any way to customize the language of this great theme? I need a german version, i would do the translation, but it would be great to do it with a language file, instead of customizing the templates.

  3. Working with the BETA right now, and liking it a lot! 2 issues found so far:
    1 – swift options> homepage and archives: the word recent is misspelled (it says recenet) under featured category.
    2 – design options>fonts: sidebar font option is duplicated

      1. More…no option to turn off random posts on single post pages. Also, comments are appearing in the wrong posts since upgrading to the beta.

          1. OK I widened the mag boxes in style.css to 275px instead of the new default 184px and it appears excerpts were working, just too long (55 words by default) for the new default width of the magazine boxes. I’m about to change the width of the thumbnails to match up as soon as I find the area to do so.
            You can take a peek at my blog to see what I did in that regard. Still working on tweaking other things, so it looks like it did previously. LOL

  5. Hey will plz tell me which plugin you using to show ur related post as its really looking great with subscribe feature integrated.

  6. Me again ๐Ÿ˜‰
    Please, check compatibility with IE and Chrome, specially in the full width header layout
    Thanks

  7. Great theme! I’ve been using it since v3.0 and it is improving very fast and in a lot of directions so it’s great! รง
    Some comments:
    -A stop button in the slider
    -I miss the mark on the header to know which page is currently being viewed, it works on v4.1
    -I would be great to have some colour combination in addition to the default (as you well did with the fonts)
    -Language support ๐Ÿ˜‰
    -More registration options integrated in the theme (I suppose this is challenging) such as OpenID, Facebook Connect, Twitter Connect…

    Thanks!
