F2 WordPress theme 1.0.4

F2 WordPress theme updated to version 1.0.4.

  • Localization in Tamil language by Ravi. ஆம், தமிழ் வலைப்பதிவுகளிலும் பயன்படுத்த ஏதுவாகியுள்ளது F2. அழகிய தமிழில் மொழிபெயர்த்தவர் ரவி.
  • Support for custom.css.

The second point needs some explanation. When you customize the theme by directly editing the style.css file, you will lose your customizations when the theme is upgraded to a newer version. For this reason, it is advised that you create a file named ‘custom.css’ and put in all CSS customizations into that file, leaving style.css unchanged. The filename ‘custom.css’ is important as this file will be automatically included when WP loads.

Update on 2009-09-18: It seems that even the custom.css file gets deleted on upgrades. Therefore, custom.css should be backed up before upgrades. Also refer to this post for a better method to customize your theme: Using theme inheritance to customize your theme

  1. Hi Srini – can you tell me which files have changed? Because I have done some changes in the index.php / single.php / style.css / header.php / footer.php.

    How should I upgrade -which files should I change / replace?

    Thanks.

    • Hi Anup, only functions.php has some significant change. You only need to replace that file. But as you don’t replace style.css, the system will behave as if you are using an old version and suggest you to upgrade. Just ignore.
