Now Compatible With WordPress 3.2

Written by Mark Forrester on July 5, 2011 Product News.

Independence Day was celebrated in style at WordPress headquarters with the launch of their latest version of WordPress 3.2 (dedicated to noted composer and pianist George Gershwin), that after 15 million downloads of WordPress 3.1!

If you haven’t already seen what the faster, cleaner version 3.2 offers watch this great video by WordPress which summarizes it’s new features and optimizations nicely.

Well done to all the core contributors!

WordPress Requirements Changes (view the WordPress 3.2 codex here) –

  • PHP 5.2.4 or greater (old requirement – since WordPress 2.5 was PHP 4.3 or greater)
  • MySQL 5.0.15 or greater (old requirement – since WordPress 2.9 was MySQL 4.1.2 or greater)

We’ve spent a good few hours testing our themes compatibility with WordPress 3.2, since it was officially released, as well as having upgraded our WooThemes site, and we are happy to report the themes are all playing nicely. Please do report any problems you might find though in our forums where we are on standby. As always we recommend you back up your site before upgrading!

    At first glance, the admin looks great! 🙂 I don’t think I’ll ever use Twenty Eleven for myself or client work, but I imagine some people will appreciate it.

    I think one of my favourite things about the new release is that it nags the admin to update their browser. This will be reallyl useful, as it keeps my clients browser current and they can view my designs correctly.

      Always happy when it helps push browsers forward, definitely welcomed. 🙂

    I have been facing issues with the ‘SEO Custom Description’of the theme Skeptical 1.0.2 Framework 4.1.8 after installing the latest update of WordPress 3.2. Here, is a screenshot

    There is always a 3 digit random number even after the SEO Custom Description has been updated. This all started immediately after installing WP 3.2. Kindly, get me a status..

      Going into the header.php file and reversing the order of the following lines made the dropdowns work on my sites, so I guess that’s good enough for now. It still breaks my Featured Content Gallery plugin, but I’ll figure that out later.

      Reverse these:

      <script type="text/javascript" src="/includes/js/jquery-1.3.2.min.js”>

      So that the wp_head code comes first.

        Oops, forgot this part.

        that should go above the wp_head code.

          Ah, it erased the code I typed… blah.

          you need the wp_enqueue_script part above wp_head.

    OMG Magellan! I had the same problem…this worked great…

      No problem, Robert! I posted my “fix” on the page and one of their pros added some additional code, as my suggestion wasn’t really a fix, per se.

      I tried adding his code and ended up frying my site, so I went back to what I had. 🙂

      The only other thing I did was add a jquery no conflict script just before superfish was served up in the header.php file in order to get it to play nice with my Featured Content Gallery plugin.

          To whome it may concern. Is there a way for mortals to get the pulldown menus in Premiums News to go down. I am a fee hours in and completely confused and wondering why something premium is so difficult.

          I want to undo the override and get the ruddy menus to open down — is it possible? Mightn;t that be something that could be made easier to find ?

    The new 2011 theme with responsive design looks very cool 🙂 Customers ask a lot if we can optimize the website for smartphones and tablets. Do you have any plans on making some of your themes available with responsive design?

      Obviously FaultPress and SupportPress have this responsive design. We’re looking into making one our next business theme responsive as well. If it’s received well we’ll definitely look into doing it more. 🙂

      If you are using our themes, they should be all compatible. There isn’t anything you need to do but upgrade to 3.2. If you do find an issue report it in our forums. – 🙂
