Catalyst Theme – New Functionality in Version 1.1.2

Catalyst ThemeCatalyst Theme for WordPress…

…Version 1.1.2 of the Catalyst Theme has just been released which now includes:




  • User Meta Options to allow control of which WordPress users can view which Catalyst Admin pages.
  • User Meta Options to allow you to assign Custom Layouts to each different WordPress User’s Author Archive Pages.
  • The ability to assign Custom Page Layouts to different non-singular page types in Core Options > Content.
  • Now you can not only assign a default layout, but you can assign a Custom Layout to your General Archives, Category Archives, Tag Archives, Search Results Pages and 404 Pages.
  • A new “Special Layout” to Custom Layouts.  This Custom Page Layout is any Custom Layout that you begin the name with default_sidebars. What it does is NOT create it’s own unique Sidebar Widget Areas but instead takes on the Default sidebars and their widgets.
  • The ability to set your own Custom Layout Width Default values in Dynamik Options > Widths.
  • A “Blog Template” checkbox option for Core Options > Breadcrumbs as well as Dynamik Options > EZ > Feature Top/Fat Footer to allow you to refine the display locations of these features a bit more.
Additionally, this latest version of the Catalyst Theme has added in a $catalyst_loop_count variable to the Post Loop so you can use conditional statements to control when certain things display during the loop.  A great example of this is when you only want to display after your posts in the first and/or second occurrence of the post during the loop process.


Catalyst Theme has also added the .current-menu-item class to the Active Page Background CSS into Catalyst’s style.css file and Dynamik’s dynamik.css file. This is specific to WordPress Custom Menus.


There is now also a “Zero Comment Text” option to specify the text for posts with no comments yet made.


Along with a string of other minor enhancements and fixes, Catalyst Theme continues to grow in stature as one of the leading WordPress themes available.
