Finally running on the latest Typo (4.0)

I’ve been putting off upgrading Typo for a while now (due to lack of time). This blog is now running on -3.99.4- 4.0 (missed the update by 2 hours!).

I have added a temporary fix to “TheLucid Typo theme”:/typo_themes/lucid.zip however keep a lookout for the new version coming soon as promised.

Please reply to this post with any features you would like to see in the next theme release.

  1. I’m encountering a number of bugs using The Lucid theme with IE 6. If confirmed, can you let me know whether IE will be supported?

    Thanks for a great theme!

  2. Thanks for the reply. I know how it is with time but thought I’d mention another issue for completeness. Another issue I’ve run across (with both Firefox 1.5.0.4 and IE6) is that when the link includes an anchor (e.g. with #comments on the end) it goes to the anchor but information above the anchor in the #content div doesn’t get rendered, both in the #maincol and #subcol.

  3. Here are some screen captures:

    I also just noticed in the amendments entry comments that you only want this theme used for Typo blogs. I used it on a Typo Themes Viewer before knowing about that. Is it okay to keep using it there? If not, just let me know and I’ll switch to something else.

    I’m also getting ready to put up an online interface to Dojo Toolkit’s (another AJAX library) JavaScript Compressor which is often used to shrink the size of prototype.js, scriptaculous.js and other scripts. It’s not up yet but I also used the Lucid theme for that. Here’s screen shot. Let me know if that’s okay or not.

    It’s pretty easy to miss your licensing requests in the comments. Perhaps there should be a link in this blog’s sidebar to a licensing page for the theme so it’s easier to find? Or maybe a LICENSE file in the lucid.zip file?

  4. Thanks for the feedback and screenshots.

    I will look into these issues as soon as I can. I’m hoping to put by some over the next couple of weeks for some personal projects.

    As for the licensing… strictly speaking it should only be used for blogs un-changed however I can’t see an issue with your usage as the projects you are using it for are open source (as long as the “template by…” link stays on there).

  5. I’m looking forward to the updates. Let me know if there’s anything else I can do to help.

    Also thanks for giving me permission to (continue to) use the theme for these open source projects. The “Template by” link will always be there.
