Twenty Fourteen Project Update

Status

We’re right on target—making lots of progress on the main features in the theme. Finishing up within 1-2 weeks, then switching gears to verifying and testing (things like device testing, RTL, older browser support, accessibility, and more).

Finished

  • Implemented alternate slider view for featured content #25550
  • Implement featured content settings for authors to control which posts are displayed, and how many #25549
  • Used SVG images instead of CSS3 gradients for speed and responsiveness, more browser support, and vector-based scalability r25865
  • Allow any page to be set as front page #25685
  • Several passes at CSS code revamp to meet WP style standards and better organization and efficiency #25592
  • More accessibility fixes #25054

Next

  • Accessibility feedback on the slider
  • Featured content options moved completely into Customizer (tag, display, count)
  • Accent colors: decide on keeping this feature in the theme #25563 #25580
  • Decide on pros and cons of creating an extra-large image size for full-width featured images #25758

On our radar

  • RTL and IE fixes
  • Mobile and tablet device testing
  • “Breaking” the theme in every way possible
