HTML5Press 2.1

HTML5Press 2.1 is available for download from the HTML5Press page. You can see a detailed list of all the changes between 2.0 and 2.1 on Github.

There were three major additions to HTML5Press 2.1, including fuzzy timestamps, a built-in Twitter widget, and support for WordPress custom backgrounds. Gregory C left a comment a few days ago that made me decide to add support for WordPress custom backgrounds. It was a simple enough thing to add, not sure why I didn’t add support for custom backgrounds earlier.
The featured photo for this post is just a screenshot of the Twitter widget options. That widget may look familiar to you. It’s nothing but a slightly modified version of Simple Twitter Widget by Matthias Siegal. I made some modifications to his plugin to include the HTML5 time element and to also make use of timeago for fuzzy timestamps.

Fuzzy timestamps are global in HTML5Press. Dates/times on posts, pages, comments, and the twitter widget will all be shown as fuzzy timestamps instead of the actual date/time. Mousing over the fuzzy timestamp will reveal the true date/time.

Some other, more minor changes and fixes:
