Hi to all,
Firstly thanks for Thematic.
It is nice work.
I want to talk about some specialities for better child theme using and better localisations.
1* Better child theme using:
You can use if(!defined(x_function)) before all thematic functions so we can override when we need. Like wordpress functions ;)
2* Please use more actions and filters, EVERYWHERE
After and before <content>, header area, post, ,comments, comment, all-sidebars, page, home, archive, 404 pages and much more actions and filters.
3* Better localisation:
Please don't split sentences, it makes hard to localize thematic. You can use more printf() functions with %1$s like parameters not %s. More info here: http://urbangiraffe.com/articles/translating-wordpress-themes-and-plugins/3/
Second point at this point don't split html codes and data.
_e('<a href="">Some thing</a>','example')
<a href="">_e('Some thing','example')</a>
So i can use special html properties like rel="nofollow" at links.
Give us a better theme (thematic).
