I’ve talked a lot about Thesis on this site, mainly because I think it’s one of the best wordpress themes available. I have 3 sites that I use Thesis on, and it allows me to make each one custom without a lot of hassle.

Within the past couple of days Thesis has launched an update, version 1.6, that makes Thesis even easier to use than before. The update gives even more control over the fonts, background colors, and most especially the navigation menus.  You can now have drop down navigation menus without any extra plugins or hassle. How cool is that?


Thesis Theme 1.6 Updates And Enhancements

So what were some of the things found in the 1.6 update?

  • New  design and color options: change fonts and colors pretty much anywhere in the theme. That means background colors, nav menus – pretty much anywhere!   Before you had to do this through the custom.css file.  Now you can do it right through the options menu.
  • Automatic dropdown nav menu: You can now add drop down navigation menus to your Thesis themed site, something that is completely new since the last update.   (check out the video below for setting these up).
  • Custom file editor in your WordPress dashboard: Now you can edit your custom.css file directly in the wordpress dashboard without the need for extra plugins.  It’s extremely handy,  I’ve already used it several times!
  • New options menu in the WordPress dashboard: Thesis now gets it’s own options/menu placement in wordpress so it’s always easy to find!
  • Other miscellaneous fixes: fixes for post images and thumbnails, IE specific styles and a few other bugs.
