Theme Change Log

Versions 1.9.3 (January 4, 2016); available on GitHub

Versions 1.9.2 (December 21, 2015)

  • Adding newly required .gallery-caption css
  • In functions.php, changing one slug from _s to a11yall

Versions 1.9.1 (November 13, 2015)

  • Adding scss folder and files (including adding cache to gitignore) that can generate style.css.
  • Sass spotted CSS error in section #6 (abl.scss) on what is now line 325:
    .section.header #skiptomain { position: absolute; top: 0; left: 0;}
    In 1.9.0 and earlier it was missing a colon after top and left.
  • Adding a “NoSidebar” custom field option, so authors can have posts without a sidebar; requires “NoSidebar” be set to “true.”

Versions 1.9.0 (June 10, 2015); available on

  • Deleting space in “Theme Name” of “All Y’all”. This was done to cope with a problem that the theme uploader has in creating directory names. (See ticket 22294.) It named this one’s directory “all-yall” — although it does not do this for native themes such as “Twenty Fifteen” which has a slug of “twentyfifteen” and directory of “twentyfifteen”. With this change the uploader should change the directory to “a11yall” so that it matches the slug. This will create a new (third) ticket for this theme.

Versions 1.8.21 and 1.8.22 (May 1, 2015)
