Highwind 1.2.2 is here!

1.2.2 is not a major release but it includes a neat little feature that I thought I’d blog about.


Highwind 1.2.2

Since introducing the Content Background Colour option, it bugged me that when the content background was a different colour from the main background, the header and footer still spanned the full width of the browser. It looked wrong.

Setting the content background to a different colour caused the header to 'overflow' that content area.

Sitting down and thinking about this I came up with a very simple solution. In Highwind 1.2.2 there’s a query in the body_class filter which compares the background & content background colour settings. If they match the header / footer span full width. If they don’t match, they don’t. Et voila!

Now the header image is cropped appropriately.

There’s a few other tweaks and fixes as well. Read the full changelog here.
