Beach House Theme WordPress 3.3.1 Compatible

Saturday, March 3rd, 2012

I have tested the current version of the Beach House with WordPress 3.3.1 and it is compatible.

Out of full discretion this theme does not have a lot of the newer hooks and features incorporated into it. I will be looking into see what I can add to the theme to make it more feature rich. I also do have a redesign for the Beach House theme in the works as well. The new theme has more horizontal space for your posts and pages like many of the newer themes that are available.

Thank you again to everyone that uses the theme. Be sure to drop me an email if you have an questions or issue in regard to installing or using it.

Beach House Theme 1.7 Release

Tuesday, April 21st, 2009

I have pushed a small update to the Beach House theme. This update updates the header.php file to correctly display the page links in the nav bar using wp-list-pages. In using wp-list-pages I have set it to not display child pages and to sort according to the page order set on each individual page.

The 1.7 release has been submitted to the WordPress Theme Directory and should be approved within the next day or so for download.

Sites That Use the Beach House WordPress Theme

Thursday, March 26th, 2009

link-loveThis site has always been a place where I previewed the WordPress Beach House them and provided news about updates that are made to the theme. As you can see the posts on this site are few and far between which isn’t so bad but I would really like to see this site used for something and up until now I did not know what that was.

See one of my favorite past times with this site is to see how people are using the theme for their individual sites. There are people that use the theme right out of the box (or zip file ;-) ) and then there are those that modify it to their liking. I am all for modifications for the theme and have even provided the Photoshop file for people to use to do so. Regardless of whether people keep the vanilla version of the theme or do heavy mods to it one thing they all seem to do is leave the links in the footer that link back to this site. In the Blogosphere we like to call that link love and I am very thankful for the love that I have been receiving.

Now it is time to give back. (more…)

The Beach House Theme is Temporarily Unavailable for Download

Friday, August 22nd, 2008

It seems that the themes.wordpress.net site is no longer up and therefore the download I used for the Beach House theme is not available. I have submitted the theme to the new theme directory and it will probably be a few days until it is approved and available.

I apologize for any inconvience that this may cause anyone but once the theme is approved it should be smooth sailing from there.
