On my to-do list for Version 1.3 is:

  • Page Template (already added to version 1.2.3)
  • Widgetized Sidebars underneath the content (already added to version 1.2.3)

  • Add image files (already added to version 1.2.3)
  • Style Widgets
  • Add important classes to custom.css file (already added to version 1.2.4)
  • Stylized ordered lists, unordered lists, image captions, image borders, and block quotes
  • Style Search Page
  • Create “displayPages.php” – a template for displaying pages rather than posts on the home page (for folks who use this theme as a CMS)
  • Add new color scheme via “custom.css” as a helpful tool (already added to version 1.2.4)
  • Sticky posts functionality
  • Format child pages in “Pages” widget (Added to 1.2.5)
  • Create page.php, archive.php, author.php, single.php
  • Add wp_head() and wp_footer() function calls
  • Style image captions

  • Support for <!–more–> quicktag
  • Add body() Class (for WordPress 2.8) (Added to 1.2.6)


  • If you plan on using The Mighty Moo! as a CMS, you will probably want to look into using a post-ordering plugin like aStickyPostOrderER.
  • Make sure to use the custom.css file for all of your edits to the theme or else it will be a real P.I.T.A. to update your css when the next update to this theme comes out.
