Hueman v3.2.10 release note 37


I’m happy to quickly introduce the version 3.2.10 of the Hueman theme.

As you’ll see in the changelog below, there’s no new features in this release. I’ve been working on fixing bugs and improving the code. This release is safe for child theme users, even if some template files have been modified.


Coming next

You may have heard about it, there’s a major new version of WordPress scheduled for December 6th : WP 4.7. Among the numerous new features and improvements of this release, the Customize Changesets has been particularly retaining all my attention because it has a great impact on my current developments for the Hueman theme.

In a few weeks, a new customization feature will be introduced in the Hueman Addons plugin. It will be a real innovation in the way we currently build our websites with Hueman. The main idea is to scope all options to a particular context. Right now, a header image, a font or a color set in the customizer are applied site wide. But there are many cases when we need to restrict the scope of an option to a particular context like a page, a post, a particular tag or category, an author, etc. The new feature will solve this problem by giving the ability to design each context like a standalone website, from the customizer.

I’ll publish a more detailed review of this new feature with a beta version in the coming weeks.



Modified templates in v3.2.10

Some of the theme templates have been changed with minor additions with no impact on child themes.

Even if there’s no impact for child theme developers, I always recommend to keep your overriden templates up to date with the latest developments.

Below is the list of template files that have been modified in v3.2.10.

  • content-featured.php
  • content-standard.php
  • content.php
  • footer.php
  • index.php
  • parts/header-main.php
  • parts/page-image.php
  • parts/post-formats.php
  • parts/related-posts.php

For a detailed review of the modification, please check the github diff report between v3.2.9 and v3.2.10.

    Another great update and thank you for the hard work you put into this. Just have a couple of questions: I noticed the “// Thumbnail sizes
    add_image_size( ‘thumb-small’, 160, 160, true ); and the other sizes in there” are no longer inside init-core.php. I used to change ‘add_image_size( ‘thumb-medium’ to a custom size, but was just wondering if this is still needed, or if this is something I should be doing in WordPress’ actual media settings section?

    One off-topic question about related posts… is it possible to have maybe 6 instead of the default 3?

    Thanks again and much appreciated as always.

    Good night. First of all thank you for this great wordpress theme, great work.
    I have a small problem and I can not solve it. I want to change the color of the news text that appears on the main page just below the header.
    It is currently light gray and I would like it to be black. I can not find the solution. Thanks in advance

    • Menaka S

      Add this to your child theme’s style.css will help.

      .entry.excerpt p {
          color: #000;

        thank you very much. I am very grateful. Waiting for the new theme hueman to be able to work with him. Thank you
