Cutline Is Alive!

August 23rd, 2007 · Site Updates

Seeing someone leave a project is always a sad thing to watch, especially when a talented person like Brian Gardner leaves a community. But Cutline and its thriving community will live on and I am glad to announce that from now on I’ll help you with your questions.

The next days will be devoted to catch up with the questions asked in diverse comments. Keep your eyes on this site for entries addressing those problems, starting next week.

In September a new Cutline mod will be released, honoring some of the greatest actual web designers.

But Cutline would never have been Cutline without you! All of you have helped Cutline to grow to one of the most vibrant WordPress theme communities around. Tell us in the comments what you would like to see here in the future, how you would like to see evolve Cutline and its community!

A Sincere Apology

August 22nd, 2007 · Site Updates

I would personally like to apologize to the Cutline community – over the past few months, I haven’t been as involved as I had intended. I was able to do a few things, like code a 3 column version and set up the showcase – however from reading all of the comments, it seems as though the community is more interested in theme support, and having issues resolved (as a theme community should).

Anyway, I have been exceptionally busy with my freelance projects and theme development, and want to take full responsibility for the lack of responses here. It is not a reflection of Splashpress, rather the busyness of my personal schedule. Having said that, I am stepping down from managing the theme, only to allow someone with more time, and more charisma towards continuing Chris’ legacy here.

Brand New Automated Cutline Showcase

June 29th, 2007 · Site Updates

Because of the overwhelming response to the Cutline Showcase idea I had, I decided to install an automated service that will serve the Cutline community more efficiently.

It allows users to submit their site for consideration, as well as to modify their listing. Basically this speeds up the process for their submissions, and makes the overall concept much better in my opinion. I would like to ask those who have submitted previously, to do it again with this system.

Thanks to everyone who submits!

Showcase Your Cutline Website

May 18th, 2007 · Site Updates

The community that Chris created when he developed the Cutline theme is ever-growing. Since it is one of the most popular WordPress themes around, I thought it would be fun to add a Showcase page, where we will have a list of current sites using the Cutline theme.

How can you get your site listed? Simple. Leave a comment on this post, with the link title/url (and a brief description) you want and we will add it.

Please note that I will personally be reviewing every link that is submitted. Which means if you are spamming, or link dropping, you will be banned from this site and I’ll zap your hard drive from where I am sitting.

Once I add your link, I will delete the comment you left. This is the best way for me to keep track of the ones I’ve reviewed and added.

Now submit your link so you can strut your Cutline stuff!

* Bear with me as I try to keep up with the overwhelming amount of people leaving their links! I promise to add yours to the list!

Cutline Theme Under New Management

May 4th, 2007 · Site Updates

As many of you are aware, Splashpress Media has acquired a number of blog properties recently, one of which is the Cutline Theme for WordPress. Special thanks to Chris Pearson, who was the creator of this great theme…

Moving along, I would like to introduce myself as the new Cutline WordPress Theme manager. My name is Brian Gardner, and I am a freelance designer as well as blogger. I have written for Performancing, have designed themes for sites such as Daily Blog Tips and have released a number of free WordPress themes.

In the near future, we will be adding a few neat things here at Cutline, so keep your eyes open and watch out for what’s to come. We will try to do our best to answer the comments that are left regarding the theme, and apologize if we can’t get to each and every one.

I’m excited about Cutline Chapter 2!

Cutline 1.1 — Running a Killer Website Just Got Easier

February 2nd, 2007 · Release Notes

Pimped out ride

Ladies and gentlemen, today’s a great day in the history of Cutline, and it really has little to do with the fact that version 1.1 is now on the table (get it here). The most excellent thing about this new release is that I’ve tweaked the theme in such a way that your life might now be easier.

I realize that with past theme updates, you tweakers and hackers out there have had a rough go of things. Adapting modified styles and sifting through stylesheets isn’t anyone’s idea of a good time, so in addition to playing nicely with WordPress 2.1, finding a way for you guys to futureproof design modifications was priority number one.

Thanks to a handy little custom stylesheet solution, your CSS changes will no longer be affected by future versions of the theme. This excellent update stands at the top of the list of this release’s major changes, which you can read about below. [Read more →]

Important Notes About WordPress 2.1 and Cutline Compatibility

January 31st, 2007 · Release Notes

On January 22nd, the Automattic crew unleashed WordPress 2.1 on the world, thereby wrecking (ok, causing minor problems with) a bundle of themes in the process. Sadly, Cutline was among the ranks of the afflicted themes, but only for reasons that were not unexpected.

Naturally, I can’t just leave you with a theme that is anything less than fully functional, so to solve this problem, I’m going to release a newer, hotter, better version of Cutline within the next few hours. In fact, by the time you finish reading this post, it’ll probably already be here.

Until then, it’s time to think about making this important upgrade, and I’d like to take this time to examine the following:

  • Potential issues with the WordPress 2.1 upgrade
  • How this upgrade affects Cutline
  • What you can do to ensure that your theme is performing at optimum levels for whatever version of WordPress you choose to run.

Enabling Comments on Pages with Cutline

December 7th, 2006 · How To

Whenever you create a Page while you’re using the Cutline theme, you’ll need to make one important decision that will ultimately affect both the presentation and dynamic qualities of that page.

Default WordPress Pages in Cutline have been constructed so as to allow for comments. In many cases, however, comments may not be appropriate, and by turning them off for a particular page, you can clean up the styling and save yourself some potential spam troubles down the road. [Read more →]
