Features :

Here’s a list of the major features K2/ Js Theme has to offer. Though for those who understand code, we recommend spending a little while to get to know the K2/ plainbox codebase, it has a few secrets here and there.

  • K2 Options Page: Write a blurp about yourself for the frontpage. Choose between traditional or livesearch. Set up the Delicious plugin without editing code. Create an archives page which employs the LiveArchives plugin. Select from dropdown between custom CSS files. This is what the options page does.
  • Livesearch: K2/ plainbox comes bundled with an AJAX-powered livesearch solution which works out of the box. No setting up, no code editing, it just works.
  • Live Commenting: AJAX-powered commenting; smooth, sexy, cyber. The technology of yester-year right here and now!
  • Plugin Support: K2/plainbox has code in place for supporting a wide range of useful plugins. All you have to do is upload and activate the plugins you want to use (pick from the list below).
  • Page Menu’s: Ehm… menu’s.
  • Page Templates: If you want to have comments on a static page or set up a nice archives page, it’s a little bit easier with plainbox ‘s page templates.
  • Author Comments Highlighted: What it says. The author of an entry has his comments highlighted.
  • Content Style:

    这里有点问题,可能rollingarchive.php有点问题. 我的文章数量如果超过一页的话会一直loading,older 和 newer也不起作用. 而用你之前的主题是没问题的-_- 这是为啥呢?不清楚鸟~~~希望解答一下. 另外,我担心是插件冲突,所以已经关掉了所有插件,可是还是没作用~

    CK 1. You have to edit the file: themes/plainbox/addon/recent.php Edit the number in the last line. 3. You have to edit the file: themes/plainbox/addon/sidnote.php Edit the name of the category . I have one qestion: How do you set the Wordpress to ‘Inline’ Asides?

    It's good to see this finally released. I've updated my plugins, yet I'm still having a few problems. If you take a look at the main page, I'll take you through them: 1) What files do I edit in order to shorten or lengthen the number of 'Recent Posts' and 'Popular Posts' shown in the sidebar? 2) The 'Links' section in the header takes me to a page that no longer lists them. 3) Nothing shows up in the 'Sidenotes' section. I have set Wordpress to 'Inline' Asides, and added a category, yet the posts in that asides category aren't showing. Does it have to be a category named 'Asides', as mine is labelled 'Quick Thoughts'? 4) The 'Blogroll' shows a similar problem to 'Links'; The Blogroll that is showed is displaying only 3 of about 15 links that should be there. Other than those four things, everything's working very nicely. Any ideas on how to fix these issues? Regards, Craig

    Hi Jay, Very good job for this theme ! :) Very glad to work on it. As i have said, i will provide as soon as possible the french version via pot files. Also, it seems that the theme is not fully valid HTML. Have you planned to have it valid ? Please advice ! Oo ;)

    hello, thx for sharing this wonderful theme with us. it took a lot of time i think, especially the tutorial in english, you made it well those days past christmas i have minor problem to reach your place here. it took a very long loading time, more then 300s until your page has been up and shown. i lost some speed i think, probably the routing to you sucks badly at the moment. but, i am glad to play around a lot tonight, awesome work - for me the best theme this year
