On July 13th the Voices installation was upgraded to WordPress 3.0 from WordPress 2.8.6. Interested members can look at http://codex.wordpress.org/Version_3.0 and http://codex.wordpress.org/Version_2.9 for a list of the new features available after the upgrade. Since we were upgrading the site already we took the opportunity to modify the main theme slightly and to add about 40 new themes for users (see http://themedemos.voices.wooster.edu/theme-previews/). In the remaining months of the summer we will be evaluating the available plugins and removing those that are not fully supported and adding a few new plugins that provide functionality for users.
We added a few new themes today and have many more in the wings. The themes added today are Black Canvas by StudioPress and Antisocial, Canvas, Geometric, Groovy Blog and Groovy Video by WooThemes (no affiliation with Wooster that we are aware of). All of these themes have extensive options, which allow you to customize the themes. In the case of Canvas you have over 90 options from which to choose in customizing the look of your site. Enjoy and contact us if you have questions.
