About article titles : There is no differences between the title, the date, and the author.
It's a little bit disturbing.

Our web admin needs to upload the latest version of the theme, which I just sent him, or revert to the old theme. You do not have permission to use a broken version of my theme on the website.

@raevol:
You can test and tweak your theme on http://sandbox.openmw.org/ which is available for testing (you have admin rights on that wordpress - but please don't mess with w3 cache and nginx plugins options). If theme will be finished and everybody say that it looks good, then send me a PM/e-mail or write a post here and I will move theme to the main site.

//EDIT: To baypass proxy cache you need to add :81 port suffix to address: http://sandbox.openmw.org:81/
best regards,
Lukasz

lgro, perhaps you can take a look at this: http://sandbox.openmw.org/

When I enable your social media plugin it completely breaks the layout. Try disabling it and see that the layout is then displayed correctly. Any ideas as to why this is?

My personal vote is to just not use that plugin, I think it's distracting, ugly, and unnecessary.

Let's wait for others comments, for me it looks good.

I think author or Wordpress team disabled hidden-seo link, but they do it wrong (they commented one line too much). It's fixed now.

I think you're right, but we need something "social-media" related so others could follow us and see what's going on in OpenMW. I will search for other plugins.

Some of the CSS got borked. We enforced a strict doctype, and I had some case issues in the CSS file, so things weren't showing up right. It's been fixed now, we're just ironing out the details.

There's the RSS feeds? And I suggested a while back we set up a facebook page. We also used to have the dev twitters listed on the wiki, we could add that to the Team page?

I'll put in a footer, thanks for reminding me.

http://sandbox.openmw.org/ has been updated, I even did a post on there noting what has been updated. :)

I'm still getting w3c validator errors. Most are from the social media plugin, and the rest still seem to be a result of the doctype. One is from one of the widgets. Any ideas lgro?

Well, you know my opinion on Facebook. Twitter is another matter through. I am not sure if the team page is the ideal place, but I don't have any better idea right now.
