WordPress Theme: Unwakeable 1.5.3

Unwakeable 1.5.3 is available for download. This version is built off K2 1.0.3 and should work beautifully with WordPress 2.9+. You can head over to the Unwakeable page to get the download, or you can grab it here.

K2 1.0 added more support for WordPress 2.9. For example, K2 1.0 supports new WordPress features such as post thumbnail images. One of the more noticeable changes to K2 since the 1.0 release is the absence of SideBar Manager (SBM). It sounds like it was simply too much work to maintain SBM, and was beyond the scope of what K2 is:

It’s worth mentioning that the last remnants of the old SideBar Manager, or SBM, have now been removed from the codebase. It started out as a fully-fledged replacement for WP’s lacking widgets system and ended up as a patch-of-sorts to the widget system, allowing for widgets to be placed only on specified pages. But in the end, while the native widget system is still very much in need of an update, it didn’t feel right for K2 to try and cover that particular area of the administration interface. And besides, other plugins for doing just that exist already.

So instead of spending our time patching that system for an ever-changing WordPress, our time is probably better spent on more theme-specific functionality, like the rolling archives or livesearch systems, as well as keeping up with new WordPress features, like for instance Post Thumbnails.

Rather than break down all of what’s changed in recent versions of K2, I’m going to make it easy on myself and direct you to the K2 1.0 release announcement. Just know that Unwakeable 1.5.3 sports all the features found in K2 1.0.3. You can comment on this post or on the Unwakeable page with questions or comments.

Well, now what?

    Hey guy, this is not a valid link.

    It is get me a ASCII-BASED zip file, and I can’t unzip it.

    I think this information can help us:

      PS: I’m sorry about my English. 🙂

    • What are you using for a web browser? I don’t have any problems downloading it, and I don’t think others have problems either.

      Unwakeable 1.5.3 has been downloaded from that URL over 1000 times.

      Are you not able to extract the files from the zip?

        Even I am not able to download the theme from the link given… It opens up as an ascii page and even if you download this file the unzip fails with unexpected end of file error.
        Plz check the zip file you have uploaded. The zip file is corrupt.

        • What are you using as a web browser? I can download and extract the files from the zip with no problems.

          • sms

            Mozila Firefox 3.6b4
            Safari v4

            “Its not a valid archive” reported by WinZip.

            Using IE8 in Windows now…

          • Can you try it again? I re-created the zip file using 7zip instead of making it on my linux box.

  • X

    OK, I download it by opera, now its working 🙂

    • What browser were you using the first time you tried?

  • sms

    Downloaded again and this time the zip file worked. I have no clue why it was not getting unzipped earlier…

  • Haze

    The archive is broken, i got this:

    7-Zip 9.04 beta Copyright (c) 1999-2009 Igor Pavlov 2009-05-30
    p7zip Version 9.04 (locale=en_US.utf8,Utf16=on,HugeFiles=on,2 CPUs)

    Error: Can not open file as archive

    Errors: 1

    • Give it a try now. I zipped it up on the linux box this site is hosted on instead of using 7zip.

      Can you let me know if it works any better or not?

      • Haze

        its the same error, but i was able to extract from windows (winrar)!

        thanks anyway… and keep the nice work 😉
