Re: 2012 Textpattern Default Theme

OK, I tweeted a link to the compiled alpha via Textpattern’s twitter feed

Note that this theme will change before final 4.6 release, because I’m changing the main and sidebar column layout a bit in due course (I’ve half done it so far).

Re: 2012 Textpattern Default Theme

One more thing I noticed. The theme uses H1 for the site title and the article titles. I think that is not the best solution for screen readers.

I am not sure if it is better to use H1 for site title and H2 for article titles. Or maybe H1 for articles and the site name is just part of the title-tag in the header.

Re: 2012 Textpattern Default Theme

The way I understand it, HTML5 compliant screen readers can differentiate between header (non-article) and main article content – plus there are WAI-ARIA roles and attributes to further aid accessibility.

Previous flavours of (X)HTML did have problems with h1 being used multiple times in pages.

Although I’m open to suggestion on this one.

I did some more reading and I think you’re correct. When using the article tag it should be fine to have multiple h1 tags.

From a SEO-perspective it might get problematic when there are multiple h1 tags in the body. Bing is recommending only one H1 in the body/or per page.

But honestly I do not really care about the SEO arguments. I guess they will soon adopt the HTML5 guidelines.

Lots of virtual ink has already flown on that one… Modern screen readers don’t seem to have a problem with a few H1, as long as the H1 is/are wrapped inside the appropriate containers, sprinkled with some ARIA-attribute goodies. OTOH, using more than two, as suggested by some WHATWG folks, appears more tricky for screen readers, in the sense of generating a correct document outline. Going farther, if your document is repurposed elsewhere, think RSS and feed readers, using multiple H1 becomes dubious. And as far as I understand it, EPUB publishers don’t like it much.

That said, one H1 for the site name (header role=banner) and one for the article title should be fine and hasn’t caused me problems with search engines.

Re: 2012 Textpattern Default Theme

A basic question on layout:

I would like to intervert the content with the sidebar. Is it safe to just say main { float: right; } and .complementary-content { float: left; } ?
(located in _responsive.sass, l. 75 and 82).

Thank you !
