Custom Classes: Version 1.0.0

Custom Classes plugin banner

It’s day 3 of the workweek, and I’m now pushing my third plugin update. I’ve had this renewed since of purpose and passion for the past few days and am trying to make the most of it.

Version 1.0.0 is actually the second release of the Custom Classes plugin. This is a full overhaul of the original plugin in terms of code.

If you’re a new user to the plugin, Custom Classes allows you to add per-post (and per-term in this release) body and post classes. These you can style from your theme’s stylesheet.

I won’t bore you with a long list of technical details in this announcement. There are only two changes that matter with the update.

PHP 5.3.0+ required:

Like some other plugin updates, I’m no longer officially supporting earlier versions of PHP. So, be sure you’re using at least PHP 5.3. I’d really prefer you could make sure to update to at least PHP 5.6.

Term classes:

Previous versions of this plugin only allowed you to add a custom body and post class for single posts from the edit post screen. Now, you can add a body class for categories, tags, or other taxonomy terms, which will be used for the term archive page.

That’s pretty much it in the way of big changes. There’s not a lot you can do with a plugin that has such a simple job. 🙂

You can grab a copy of the plugin from its page or GitHub repository. Otherwise, feel free to install/update from your WordPress admin.

I hope you enjoy this release!
