Version 5.40 of SWIFT is here with many bug fixes and some new options.

New version of SWIFT is here with many improvements and bug fixes that went unnoticed since v5.25

Here is a list of bugs that are cleared

  • popular posts  listed on error pages were redirecting to another error page, that’s fixed now. (Reported here)
  • Slider was always showing only recent posts, that’s fixed.
  • Home page not showing any posts, this isn’t a bug, posts shown in the slider are skipped from the WordPress loop to avoid duplicate content on the home page for better search engine rankings. But now, I’m sick of answering the same question again and again. So I added an option to choose if you want skip posts shown in the slider from WordPress loop. This is disabled by default, you should enable it for better rankings in search engines. Note: This new setting can be found at swift options->homepage options.
  • Errors in admin-core.php, reported here

Important!! Feedburner ID, wont be carried forward to the new version. You should add it again. Also content shown in slider wont be skipped from wordpress loop, you should update that setting.

  1. Hello Satish
    I’m a new comer of your Swift Theme. Just install it on my blog. Guess what, it works great and i can call it easy to customize theme (even i’m not good in CSS, HTML, PHP or coding). I like a ‘simple look’ theme but with great features… and in my opinion Swift theme got it all. You have done a very good work.
    Anyway, I wanna throw you a little suggestion on the theme’s Enable Custom CSS area. It would be great if you can make it wider space instead of present small space as provided. Just to make it more eyes friendly..lol
    Keep up your good job Satish.
    Thanks
     

      1. Thanks..

  2. Using v5.28 (had problems with 5.40) using WP 3.0 w/Multisite.  Not sure why but suddenly all my Swift themed sites have background color that stops midway down the page.  Non-Swift themes are ok. I have uninstalled and re-installed 5.28 but no luck.  Any thoughts?

  3. I have extensive categories on my swift installation.
    I have the menus set up with those categories.
    When the menu drops down over the slider and you follow it down with the mouse the drop down menu closes when selecting any of the menu items that cover the slider.
    For example on
    http://www.storerboatplans.com/wp/
    When you select “all plans” from the menu try to select “quick Canoe” or “raid 41”
    REally like SWIFT a lot.  It is excellent.
    Thanks

  4. Hello Satish,
    I really like the theme. It’s got a lot going for it but, one big problem I can’t seem to resolve. Image sizing. When I reduce the size of an image to fit in to the post nicely and save the post, when I view the post it blows back up to the original size. Not only that but type moves around and things get positioned over the top of one another. You can see this at http://www.gonewiththewindlamps.net/gone-with-the-wind-lamp/how-about-a-tinted-glass-gone-with-the-wind-lamp/.
    I’m thinking that this has something to do with the javascript in there since I note that when the page loads the images are the correct size and then afterward it enlarges at the end of the page load. I am hoping you can offer some kind of fix for this or I will have to switch.
    Is there something that can be done about this? It’s totally messing up the look of my pages and I want to continue to use this theme because I think it’s great other than that.
    In case you’re wondering, yes, I have updated to the 5.43 version.

    please help my problem because i like the themes please

  6. also,  I forgot to mention. Sometimes the lite slider doesn’t transition in sequence. For instance, it can feature an image but with the post title for a previously shown post on the slider. Would like to be able to fix this as well

  7. Hey Satish,
     
    I recently upgraded to WordPress 3.0 and ever since have had problems with using Swift.
    The first problem has to do with using Facebook share. When I share posts on Facebook, the image for the posts no longer appear. Also the post title appears as the link url instead of the actual title.
    Second, I have been unable to uplaod images directly through wordpress. Once I click on “insert post” the page doesn’t load but stays blank
     
    Third the Lite featured image slider doesn’t show on internet explorer. This is curious because the lite featured image slider features on swift when I use internet explorer.
     
    Not sure what the problem is. Will appreciate your help. To understand the problems better you can visit my site here: http://tinyurl.com/2g3waja

          I’m thinking of releasing it as a premium theme, I’m going to give some free copies to those are willing to write a review of the BuddyPress version of the theme. Subscribe to our feed to stay tuned. 🙂

  8. why isn’t this available directly from the WordPress theme upload page?
    LOOKS AMAZING… great work as alays and I cant’ wait to use 5.0.

  9. I installed the latest version 5.40 since I had problems with 5.28 – and there’s still problems! I copied the message that I get when installing:

    As long as this occurs, I cannot use your excellent theme! So far it seems to be the best for my purpose, so I’d really like to use it…
    Please give me a hint what to do!

  10. Thanks for the update… Please keep the updated theme in the wordpress directory soon… I would like to use the stable version.
    Also i want to know if you have provided any guide to the new stable one or not.
    Best Regards for future supports too, Satish.

  11. I don’t know what happen with my blog.
     
    I use your theme, but it seems very bad, the word in the content is overlapping and smaller. I try to make a different size in the option panel, but it doesn’t work.
     
    Pleas, help me to solve this problem.
    Thanks
