The latest version of blogBox is now 3.05.2. I had to make some minor changes to the theme to be able to submit it to WordPress.org for approval.

blogBox Version 3.0.1 Update

This site now demos blogox version 3.0.1. The new version is a significant update from version 2.0.0.

blogBox is now fully responsive. Reduce the screen size and you will see what I mean, or better yet load up the demo site on your mobile device.

blogBox has switched to the Nivo Slider. The nivo slider is a great slider offering thumbnail navigation. The home slider has expanded to offer 4 slider options and two single image options.

blogBox now supports all the post formats. You can choose to show post format icons. Post Format styles can also be changed in the blogBox Options panel. Playing around with different background colors, font colors and font types is a feature that makes the theme a lot of fun.

Tips on the Upgrade

Because the new version is a major upgrade, users are going to need to do some re-configuring of their sites:

  • Header – The header will have to be reconfigured. The header section was re-coded to give more flexibility and features to designing your header. Unfortunately you’ll have to spend a few minutes re-configuring your header.
  • Widgets – Widgets will be reset and all your widgets will be temporarily moved to the inactive widget area. You will have to drag them back to your widgetized areas.
  • The new theme includes a modified social widget. The top left header area is now widgetized so to get your social links back up there you will have to drag the social widget to that widgetized area.
