New Features, Sharing Support, Flickr Integration, Improvements, and Bug Fixes

Earlier today I submitted version 1.1.0 for approval, and it should be rolled out shortly.  This new version includes quite a few additional features, improvements and bug fixes. If you have already installed Backburner (and haven’t customized the HTML) it should update automatically for you.  If you have customized the HTML it might be helpful to dig through the changes or simply reinstall Backburner to update.

List of Changes

  • Feature: Short URL, retweet with TweetMeme and share on Facebook.
  • Feature: Added Flickr module to the sidebar. Add yourFlickr user ID to the Appearance module to enable.
  • Header: Removed the RSS button from the top right and relocated to the bottom of the sidebar
  • Pages: Removed the date from below the page since dates are not supported by Tumblr for pages.
  • Text Posts: Added support for <pre> tags for codeview
  • Text Posts: Limited the width of YouTube embeds to 500px to prevent breaking the page.
  • Text Posts: Limited image width to 500px.
  • Text Posts: Improved styling for various HTML elements.
  • Answer Posts: Added additional padding below question
  • Sidebar: Added RSS, Follow this Tumblr and Archive to the bottom
  • Sidebar: Added option in Apperances for a portrait thumbnail.
  • Sidebar: Limited width of images to 200px.
  • Sidebar: Fixed buttons for multiple lines
  • Sidebar: Fixed sidebar title rollover background
  • Sidebar: Improved element styles to help prevent poor rendering

  • David Buhler:

    So do you plan on updating this theme when new features come out?

  • Backburner:

    Yes, when Tumblr adds in new features you'll see it supported in Backburner as soon as possible.

  • David Buhler:

    Great to hear! Any idea when Tumblr will support 'post by fax'?

  • Backburner:

    Uh... I don't know if that will ever be supported.

  • David Buhler:

    Well I hope so. I had this idea of faxing in all the different take out menus I've collected over the years.

  • Backburner:

    Hmm
