ZenLite 4.0 Released

Posted on Wednesday, March 30th, 2011 at 12:09 pm in

The latest version of the single column ZenLite WordPress theme is now available for download. This version features dropdowns on the main navigation menu and has support for all of the WordPress post formats.

Post Formats is a theme feature introduced with WordPress 3.1 that allows you to change how each post looks by choosing a Post Format from a radio-button list on the Add New Post (or Edit Post) administration pages. For example, in ZenLite, a post that is defined as a link is considered to contain a single link to an external site. The link’s text will be used as the post title along with a small link icon to indicate that it leads to an external page. In the single post view, the link’s url (address) will also be shown. No other post content will be displayed.

The various post format displays are described in the Post Format tab within the Theme Options page. ZenLite also includes documentation on it’s custom options within the same page — including a new option to display auto-generated titles on Posts/Pages that do not have their own titles.

As always, comments. feedback and bug reports are welcome on the Theme support forum.

ZenLite is also available for download via the Theme Repository on wordpress.org. An updated version of the ZenLite Black Mandarin child theme has also been released.
