Filtering/sorting and pagination are two mentally conflicting models of organizing data. Thus, Blockster uses lazy-loading and infinite scroll, in combination with its filtering and sorting, to help site users navigate through posts while maintaining optimal performance.
- FastClick (optimal mobile-touch experience)
- HighlightJS (syntax highlighting)
- Isotope (commercial license used, $25 value)
- FitVids (responsive video)
- RetinaJS (retina image detection)
- Typeplate (typography framework)
- 2.1.2 --- Another bug fix. Also removes some unnecessary files from the build.
- 2.1.1 --- Bug fix. Adds translation support for search box placeholder text.
- 2.1.0 --- Makes Blockster easily translatable (and generally more customizable) via the config file and adds support for tag pages (that mirror the design of the home page).
- 2.0.6 --- Fix to a bug preventing comments loading on post pages.
- 2.0.5 --- Update for Ghost navigation feature (Ghost v0.5.9). Improvements to the config file. RSS link fix. Social icons can now be toggled on/off and rearranged via the config file.
- 2.0.4 --- Left sidebar and slideout color setting added to the config file.
- 2.0.3 --- Home links deactivated on the home page. Renamed some partials for increased clarity.
- 2.0.2 --- Feature added: tag-filter post count. Bug fix: some tags not filtering (for some users)
- 2.0.1 --- Bug fix.
- 2.0 --- Lazy loading added to home page, lots of other improvements/tweaks. The only breaking change is that post excerpt images must now use Ghost's cover-image uploader. The previous method was a hack and bad for performance. Also, to prevent Blockster from placing a post's cover image/audio/video at the top of the post, now simply add the tag "no-cover" to the post.
- 1.1.8-1 --- Small fix for a bug affecting some mobile browsers.
- 1.1.8 --- Static page template enhancements, now allowing for the featured image and default header or a simple blank slate (if no featured image is uploaded). Also, heading sizes slightly tweaked.
- 1.1.7 --- About-page top image now sourced from Ghost editor, not the site/author cover image (more logical approach since the introduction of multi-user support and a post/page image uploader)
- 1.1.6 --- Added two new features: 1) Customizable transparency settings for left sidebar and slideout. 2) A "simple mode" option for filter/sort list items. One important bug fix that prevented a custom background from loading.
- 1.1.5 --- Updated for Ghost 0.5.2. Now supports Ghost's new post "featured image" uploader, images and titles (on home-page excerpts) are now linked to their respective posts, added package.json, some minor bug fixes, greatly increased performance, and edits to the docs.
- 1.1.4 --- Updated to support Ghost 0.5, added Author sorting option when a blog has multiple authors.
- 1.1.3 --- Stylesheet refactorings, improved vendor prefixing.
- 1.1.2 --- Primarily a fix for a bug causing some color setting combinations in the config file to break the theme's stylesheet (preventing it from loading).
- 1.1.1 --- Bug fix for spacing issue on the index.
- 1.1.0 --- BIG update. Lots of new features:
- New Gallery Layouts
- New Gallery Hover effects
- Image Backgrounds (included in download and support for custom)
- Banner Feature for the home page (top and bottom, dynamic HTML)
- Custom page/post width settings via config file (no custom code required, simply change some numbers)
- Filter/Sort slideout now has a scrollbar on small screens
- Improved gallery title options (now it's simply toggleable via the config file for each gallery layout option, no special gallery option is now needed)
- Many script optimizations for increased performance
- Bug fixes
- 1.0.1 --- important bug fix for home-page excerpt styles not toggling via config file
