  1. Hello Colleagues -

    Thanks again to the Thematic Framework developers and supporters -- you're great. Hey... I say again -- post a donation link and I will go immediately and send you some $.

    I want to ask all for your thoughts on the MU merger with WP 3.0 this April, and ask a question about child theme options. First, here's a look at a recent we built on the Thematic Framework:

    MU Merging into WP3: Heard about it? Do we know yet what changes will be required to themes, and when Thematic will be upgraded?

    Multiple Child Themes for Separate Blogs in WP 3.0 (as in MU now): If we have theme options for children built with custom functions in a child theme, and one of them, for example, is the ability to upload an image for a header, how does that play out for each blog wishing to use a different image for a header? Does it require a brand new child theme for each new blog, or will the same child theme "know" how to save a different specific header image as called for a blog?

    By the way... I have heard a rumor that Chris is planning a special plugin for a killer child theme options page in admin. When is it coming, and will it play well with multiple blogs in the new WP 3.0?

    Cheers to All -

  2. Hi Scott,

    we will support the MU part of WordPress 3.0. Each blog will be able to run the same child theme but with different options. I'll integrate an option to enable / disable setting changes.

    The plugin thing is cancelled. I'm working on an options page that can be controlled / extended by child theme authors.

    I'm sure that we'll have something to play with in the next weeks. And we'll have a real beta cycle for the first time.
