On the heels of the last twoPWP updates, additional features have been added as we prepare for an open-pilot to all of Georgia Tech’s campus, tentatively scheduled for Summer 2015.
Tertiary Menu Support
GT Boilerplate has been updated to add in support for menu links 3 levels deep in both desktop and mobile form. As we saw a current PWP website incorporating this menu hierarchy, it was imperative to add this support in.
Our hosted platform, WordPress, has updated with some new features:
Additional embeds (Kickstarter, Tumblr), extended character support, content sharing, emoji, and some under-the-hood improvements.
Simple Social Icons is an easy to use, customizable way to display icons that link visitors to your various social profiles. With it, you can easily choose which profiles to link to, customize the color and size of your icons, as well as align them to the left, center, or right, all from the widget form (no settings page necessary!).
PWP users can now add social media icons to anywhere on their website that allows widgets to be placed.
GT Boilerplate Update
GT Boilerplate, the standard Georgia Tech theme for WordPress, has been updated with the following new options:
Advanced mobile styling (header, footer)
Addition of top user bar (Georgia Tech links, social media placement)
Removal of unnecessary backend code
Addition of custom logo options that override the Georgia Tech logo
These features are immediately available and should not impact any current website using GT Boilerplate. If you are already using GT Boilerplate, you will not need to do anything – the theme has been automatically updated.
