Recently Aisis was halted in terms of development due to the fact that it was severely broken on anything but web matrix for windows. While this is still a platform I develop on I have learned, the hard way, to test on Linux machine, as that’s what most web hosting services use. There have been a lot of fixes, changes, cleaning up and so on.
Lots of Fixes
Aisis went through some serious changes, for example, error and success messages are now displayed at the top of the Aisis Admin Panel no matter if you are in an editor or in in the core options section. We also display a pop up to tell you that you have either epically failed or succeeded in whatever it was you were doing.
Custom Post Types
There are three main types in Aisis, You have Slides, which is modeled after Woo Themes where you can insert content and Images into the slider on the front page and we have Articles and Essays which essentially are posts that are meant to be in-depth long pieces of work with a heavy emphasis on the content at hand, that’s why with these posts we do not show you the side bar and try to get out of your way for the content you are writing. We also introduce Biographies which are another custom post type that you can use to give detailed information on the authors of your blog. These are also much like articles where we get out of your way and let the content shine!
We have now fixed the footer; you have in the options panel a right and a left footer text that you can change to your desire.
FlexSlider instead of Camera
We believe it’s best to go with Flex Slider by Woo Themes because it allows us to use it to display content and images better then camera did. Plus it’s also responsive, much like camera was.
Other Misc Fixes
We did some small design fixes for when you resize the screen and did some cleaning up around the files and what not to create a cleaner API and documentation.
This Weekend is devoted to documentation and making sure that the whole Aisis Core is moving towards a unified documented package of software. We are also working hard to make sure that the examples given with this documentation are clean, concise and clear with plenty of actual examples.
“Expect something Epic!”
This campaign is starting on Friday June 8th 2012 and will be starting on twitter. We will be tweeting at some of the larger people in the WordPress community. We also hope to have a fully stable product such that we can also create a WordPress post about it and get the name out that way. Starting on June 15th we will be creating the first ever Aisis Blog at Aisis.adambalan.com which will use our software to house the blog and all associated posts.
June 15th we are launching Aisis as a beta build on the Beta branch on Github and applying for the svn details for the WordPress theme repo.
