Minimal Georgia Gets an Update: Post Formats & More

Hey there! I'm currently working on a CLI tool to deploy WordPress apps to DigitalOcean. Check it out! It's free and open source.

Minimal Georgia 1.4.1 ReleasedMinimal Georgia for WordPress was introduced a couple of weeks ago, and today there’s over 2000 downloads! I know this doesn’t mean that all 2000 are using the theme, but they at least had a look, which is okay for my first ever WordPress theme ;)

The new (1.4.1) version has got some major updates and improvements. The most exciting are definitely post formats (audio, video, gallery, image, quote, link, status and chat) and drop-down menus!

Yeah, I figured that one navigation menu line might not be enough for some users, which is why I introduced the drop-downs (totally fit the five available color schemes). I also went forward and removed the one-line restriction, which means that the primary navigation menu could now be in two, three and four rows. Same applies to the blog title on the top left, a title of any possible length should fit well in there, making the whole header just bigger in height.

There’s also an Italian translation available, grazie molto a Gianni Diurno ;) and any other translations are welcome. Russian was done by me (of course), the .pot file is in the languages directory in the theme distribution.

Here’s a complete list of all the improvements from 1.3 to 1.4.1:

  • Now with post formats!
  • Header now fluid (vertically), fits long blog titles and many more navigation menus
  • Minor admin UI and security fixes
  • Minor changes in editor style
  • Color picker has been widgetized
  • SEO friendliness on homepage and singular pages
  • The navigation menu has now drop-downs for sub menus
  • Minor fixes for Firefox overflow bug
  • Line height has been set to 1.5 em for better readability
  • Italian translation has been added

Preview and download is available at the Themes Directory. Comments, contributions and suggestions are always welcome on the Minimal Georgia page. Cheers!

  1. Hi, Love the theme.

    I tried creating child themes from it… realized that the css were hard coded into the header, I know some people do it for speed. But i was wondering if you could/would use @import in the header of the stylesheet (style.css).

    Thanks again for the great theme.

    • Shawn, I'm not too good with child themes. Let's talk this through on Skype my handle is kovshenin. I might give you access to the github project :) Cheers!
