K2 Release Candidate 3 Released

Still some bugs to take care of, but Release Candidate 3 should cover your most immediate needs.

We cannot fix what we don’t know about, and we won’t know about it if you don’t file a bug. And we do want to fix as much as possible. So, if you have a problem, first check the list of current bugs, if there isn’t already a similar issue, file a new one.

Fixed Positioning for Rolling Archives

As per revision 513, once you’ve started digging into the archives on a site using rolling archives, and you scroll down, the rolling archives navigation strip attaches itself to the top of the page (try it here). This should remove the frustration of skimming through the archive pages and constantly having to go back to the top when you wanted to flip to the next page.

It might be interesting for those of you who plan to style to know just how this works. Well, it’s quite simple; when you scroll, a piece of javascript checks if the top of the ‘#dynamic-content’ container–which is where the content of your blog is kept–is being scrolled out of view. If it is, the class ‘fixraposition’ is added to BODY. The rest is CSS in css/rollingarchives.css.

I haven’t tested this in IE yet, but in all likelihood it doesn’t work. But then, what does?

K2 Release Candidate 2

Go grab your copy of RC2. I’m hoping this’ll fix the SBM reordering problems. For now though, please be aware that IE7 might still have problems.

And of course, if you’re an IE7 expert and you have some time on your hands, let me know, cuz we could sure use your help.
