Unsleepable is wildly popular, and it should soon be even more popular.
I should wait, i should just not post this now. but that wouldn’t be me. i’m a snarky, self-serving asshole. so here’s why my version is better than bryan’s:
mine’s not bug-ridden mine doesn’t have a k2 options page that doesn’t do anything (remember that unsleepable styles asides the same as non-asides)[options panel removed] mine has a bottom block my bottom block has widgets[only 3 widgets can be added to the bottom block, otherwise the theme breaks] my header stays in line when you’re logged in (when you have that top bar on your blog)[the header now stays in place. which i suppose is just as valid as moving the background image down 28px. just less attractive] my header uses the proper hover color for the title (it’s meant to be black, not blue).
- [post link titles are not styled correctly]
Now, to be fair, there are two ways in which bryan‘s version is better than mine:
- The footer is full width.
- The title link is no longer an image, so it no longer requires user intervention.
(although that custom header image automattic is so proud of could make a header image quite easy).
On the plus side, this means that the k2 options panel (at least the k2 b2r167 options panel) has passed a wordpress.com security audit. so we should see k2 on wordpress.com in the near future, right?
or did it only pass the security audit because it doesn’t actually create an archive page, it doesn’t actually use matt’s asides, and the about blurp is never executed, so it couldn’t actually harm anything on wordpress.com?
this seems to be a live reboot of sorts. so i’m now ticking off the issues as they’re corrected, or modifying them as new issues are added. [updates are in brackets]
it appears i was only too right about k2. le sigh. i would post about how i really like asides, and not having an options panel in k2 really kills it for me, but i’ve been too much of a negative nancy lately. i can’t even post about them linking to binary bonsai, rather than getk2.com without feeling like that asshole. le fucking sigh.
