A fresh look

After having used the same theme for several months, I was starting to get pretty sick of it. So after viewing a free css template gallery (strangely called freecsstemplates.org), and was already slowly converting it into WordPress, but luckily I Googled the theme name a bit later and fell over this template, converted by WP Theme Spot.
However, I think they did make some pretty ugly theme modifications (red links rather than orange, stupid choice of fonts, etc.), so I’ve been tinkering with it for the past couple of days (and still am).

Of course, this theme is released under a CC-SA licence, so I’m forced to release it (not that I really mind), but I’m just going to ask for a couple of days to mess around with it as I please.

Functions include:

  • Built-in UTW support with regular comment-fallback if UTW isn’t installed,
  • Built-in support for Gravatars (if it’ll let me have its way with it),
  • A jibbalicious (yes, I just made up that word) header loaded using AJAX, once Morten has shown me how to do this.

So yes, a very exciting new theme coming up (or so I think). I’m expecting to release it within 2 or 3 days, but I’ve pushed my deadlines before, and I can’t really help doing so. Very busy schedule.

    Oddly, the two CC licenses linked to have only one difference, and that is Share Alike. Because that is the only difference, and the theme is dual-licensed, I could simply choose the license without that restriction.

    What’s the point of linking it in the first place? Either link one or the other, but I’d recommend only licensing it under the SA one.

    What about your earlier theme? I really like the black background. Will you release it for public sooner or later?
