I’ve found this in only one of my themes so far, but a warning to developers.

In 3.9 WP no longer outputs the body.custom-background CSS if your theme option for the background colour, matches its default.

In short, if you don’t have the default background colour applied to body {} in your stylesheet, then the colour will no longer be applied if the theme options are set to the default custom background colour.

Make sense? :)

Basically, ensure that your default background colour is properly defined on body in your stylesheet.

RATHER SWIFT EDIT: Found a second theme in my portfolio with the same kind of setup, which is not experiencing this issue. This may be something theme specific to me only, but it’s worth a check :)

Hey :)

What you’re looking for is a “CSS Sticky Header” or it’s many variants, there’s so many methods of doing this, but a quick search on stack overflow will give you loads of answers.

Wow, the live widget editing is amazing! Works perfectly with all existing theme options in the Live Customizer also, I’m loving how powerful this is getting as a true theme management point now :)

If you’re in a template file (single.php etc.) then you should make the HTML as transparent and easy to work with as possible, so go for 1.

Inside a function, for for 2.

To elaborate on point 1, I like to prep my variables etc. in the top of a file, and then do as little php inline as possible. Example, grabbing the full thumbnail URL of a post inside the loop:

/**
     * First let's declare $post so that we can easily grab everthing needed.
     */
     global $post;

     /**
      * Next, we need to grab the featured image URL of this post, so that we can trim it to the correct size for the chosen size of this post.
      */
     $url = wp_get_attachment_image_src( get_post_thumbnail_id($post->ID), 'full');

So that’s my prep work. Then I can do as little as possible actually inline in the html:

<a href="<?php echo $url[0]; ?>">Link</a>

EDIT: Looks like Ruben had the same point as me :)

If it was $13 then it definitely was not a WordPress Theme.

Title says it all really, the new post purchase page “Download Your Files” offers only the main theme download to buyers, bringing back the “missing style.css” error we were all so glad to be rid of.

Sorry if there’s a proper thread for this feedback, couldn’t find it :)

I think you can since you are still the owner of the theme. You are allowed to give it to anyone if you like.

No you can’t, not as an exclusive author, that’s a breach of terms.

@playnethemes – Licenses are non-transferable, so the best thing to do would to to open a new account, purchase the theme, and then give the account details :)

How is he(it) holding the camera? :)
I’m also asking myself the same question… That can’t be a selfie… More a simple funny pic.

It took 2 days and 52 separate shots to put together using the Rovers movable camera arm to take the shots, then they were combined and de-seamed (not sure of the technical term?!)
