Thesis OpenHook 2.0.2 Released

I’m pleased to announce the release of Thesis OpenHook 2.0.2, a minor release so far as releases go.

However, a bug was reported (thanks, Justin) pertaining to the “404 Title” hook which caused slashes to not be properly stripped resulting in messy, messy titles.

I also added the repeatedly asked for feature of being able to modify the text displayed on the save button.

Thanks, everyone, for your continued usage and enjoyment of OpenHook. I’m very glad that so many have benefited from this work, and I hope that over time we see even more.

As always, in order to use OpenHook, you must be using the best WordPress theme there is: Thesis by DIYthemes. Okay, I’m biased, but with spot-on typography, ample whitespace, proven search engine optimization, and more features than you can shake a stick at… What are you waiting for? Your blog deserves Thesis!

  1. Hey there Rick,

    Where do I go for support on Open Hook? I tried the original post but comments are now closed (not surprisingly!).

    I’m having problems with things not appearing- the nav bar doesn’t move beneath the header, the footer doesn’t take my modifications into account…

    1. I made a note about it in the original OpenHook post itself. There’s been a forum @ DIYthemes for OpenHook for a while now; it’s listed under “Third Party” at the bottom of the main page of the board.

  2. Well now, I’m glad I found your blog. What you have to say here on both primary subjects is of vital interest to me.

    I have had a deep and abiding interest in The Faith of our Fathers (read Orthodox Christianity), both the history and the life, for a long time now.

    I am new to blogging and interested in learning all I can about the technical side of setting up and maintaining a blog platform. Sadly, I am about as technically savvy and capable of learning that side blogging as a stone is. I am using Thesis (lawrencae on the forum) and you have dropped by my queries and left a note a time or two. I have a lot to learn and I fervently hope that in time some knowledge will find a way into my hard head.


  3. Hello there :-)

    Forgive me for my very basic question. I have been staring at my new Thesis theme all week trying to figure out how to customize my background and border. I also have a header that I’d like to input. I have researched tutorial after tutorial but I don’t understand how to edit anything. For these hooks, do I just add the code after that is listed below? I just found this plug-in last night so this is all new to me.

    Any help would be great. I have already been through the DIYthemes website and other sources. I really just don’t understand any of this. Thank you!

    Here’s what is in the Custom StyleSheet:

    File: custom.css
    Description: Custom styles for Thesis


    If you have enabled the custom stylesheet in the Thesis options panel, the tag
    will be appended with the “custom” class, like so: . You can use
    the “custom” class to override *any* CSS declarations contained in the style.css file.

    For example, if you wish to change the default link color to green, you would add the
    following declarations to this file:

    .custom a, .custom a:visited { color: #090; } <— This makes links green
    .custom a:hover { color: #00f; } <— This makes links blue when you mouse over them


    By using the “custom” class, you are creating more specific CSS declarations for HTML
    elements. CSS styling is applied through rules of specificity, and because declarations
    prepended with .custom are more specific, they get applied when the page is rendered!

    More information about styling your Thesis installation using this file can be found
    in the User’s Guide:
