v1.0.3

We have just released v1.0.3 of the Zen Grid framework that fixes a few issues.

Features:
- Added facility to check for currenttemplate/css/extracss.php file. This file can be used to create variables for styling such as background etc. The appropriate variables still need to be added to the templateDetails.xml.

- Added the ability to add any of the override css from the template admin into this output which reduces the number of Style declarations in the head. This onlyhappens if the extracss.php file exists.

- Added a check for the TemplateVariables.php to [ current template ] / includes/templateVariables.php. This file is used to load any new template variables that are not essential to the core framework. Previously these variables were added to the template's index file. You can also add any new php logic to this file.

Bug Fixes
- Fixed various image pathway issues in the assets/layout folder
- Fixed issue where Header1 module wasnt published if logo was set to left position.
- Fixed issue with logo path for any folder other than the default template folder.
- Updated layout assets with the logo location fix.


Updating: to update the core framework simply install on top of your existing installation.

Please be sure to check the upgrade instructions fin the forum for you Zen Grid compatible template. eg Zen Blank, Zen Default, Avanti, Folio Life, Shop Front, Zen Simple Shop, Simple Shop.
