Updates: The new theme option panel

These days I am updating all of my WordPress themes with the new theme option panel that comes with slightly changes to improve usability and design. It was important for me that all themes have the same and equal option panel in view of the launch of Theme Support soon.

The new option panel comes with a sidebar which contains the most important links to the theme and ThemeZee. Furthermore the options are now separated into tabs which make the whole option page more clear and easier to configure. Moreover all image fields include now a button to directly upload your images/logos/ads.


Despite the option panel I have added the often requested Pinterest Button to the SocialMedia Buttons. And the dropdown navigation menus now have a CSS fallback if javascript is deactivated.

So far six theme updates are already live in WordPress.org Extend (that was fast, compliment to the WordPress Themes Review Team). The remaining four themes will surely go live in the next days.
