P2 1.3.1 Released

If you use the P2 theme for WordPress then you should be seeing an update in your WordPress admin panel.

The changes in P2 1.3.1 are:

  • Change sticky post color to blue, and place new posts after sticky posts
  • Reset the height of the new post textearea after a successful post
  • Do not confuse logged out with offline: better logged out/offline error handling
  • Add author template so P2 can catch 404 request to non-existent authors on current blog
  • Use user_nicename for @-name mention hint, since that is what mentions uses

There are however a few bugs being reported on the P2 support forum so we wouldn’t recommend updating just yet. We would imagine a fixed version will be released in a few weeks.

If you need help updating your P2 theme feel free to contact us.

After doing some searching we stumbled across the WordPress Mobile Edition plugin by Crowd Favorite.
