Here is the official statement from WordPress…
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.
This week we are proud to push live the new website for Uptime Devices.
Uptime Devices was referred to us by our favorite copywriter, Jason Pedley.
Their old website was built a few years back and users were finding it hard to navigate.
In creating the new site the biggest point of emphasis was to make sure that consistent navigation was had throughout and that they had the ability to maintain the site. By creating a custom theme and using WordPress as their content management system we were able to accomplish both of those goals.
This afternoon WordPress released a minor update, WordPress 3.2.1.
The official statement from the WordPress blog said:

This maintenance release fixes a server incompatibility related to JSON that’s unfortunately affected some of you, as well as a few other fixes in the new dashboard design and the Twenty Eleven theme.
In looking through our Google Analytics this week we noticed that more and more of our visitors were coming from mobile devices. Due to the number of projects we’re working we didn’t have the time to develop a mobile theme so we started looking for mobile plugins for WordPress.
After doing some searching we stumbled across the WordPress Mobile Edition plugin by Crowd Favorite.
The installation took only 4 steps.Read more

A lot of our work now-a-days has come in the form of creating custom themes for WordPress. When building a custom theme for WordPress we name our themes for many reasons but the most important is that if we just put our theme into the default folder or the twentyten folder then when a WordPress update is done the theme can be overwritten and if you don’t have a backup, gone forever.
To name your theme just follow these simple steps:Read more
This afternoon WordPress announced the release of version 3.1.4.
Most users were hoping that the next release would be WordPress 3.2 but an issue that could allow a malicious Editor-level user to gain further access to the site had to be fixed before 3.2 was released.

While working on a client’s blog this week we were presented with the issue of using Disqus for comments on their blog but they did not want it to appear when they made pages in WordPress.
After searching around on the Disqus site for a while we were not able to come up with a solution.Read more
A few weeks back Google pushed its +1 button live across the web. The Google +1 setup tool is very easy to use to generate the code needed.
