artsemerging: new wordpress 2.0 theme (also 1.5) (12 posts)

    Heya!

    Just downloaded the new Beta and it's rockin! In celebration, got a new compatible WordPress 2.0 theme (works in 1.5.x, too, on all Mac and PC browsers - haven't tested Linux - sorry!). The theme is also to promote a new site on South African contemporary art, which uses WordPress (very simply, mind you) as a Content Management System. Check out the theme, instructions, download, etc:

    Please let me know via this forum, or here if you experience any problems!

    enjoy,
    nathaniel

    Works flawlessly on Firefox on Linux. You can safely add it to your list of compatible platforms. Nice looking theme by the way.

    As I refreshed the comment page, for some reason or another, the footer went to the center of the page. I cannot reproduce the error though. Work rechecking carefully...

    Also to be aware:

    Hey, thanks! Went in and made some minor changes, and the theme now is both xhtml and css valid / compliant. I still get a handful of warnings (not errors), but they are mostly asking for redundant information, so I'm gonna let them go. Unfonrtunately, I can't seem to repeat the refresh bug you found on any of my (mac) browsers... I'm hoping anyone else who gets it can figure out a way to repeat it, so I can do tests. Any other bugs, lemme know.

    Happy holidays!

    Only complaint: I don't like the font.

    It's the opposite of the classic WP theme.
    The classic theme has a horrible (overly spaced) font, this font is too narrow.

    For the design/presentation part outside of the text however, it's really nice!

    y'know what? I agree (and thanks for the tip). I've increased the letter-spacing on the post font's class ever so slightly; what do you think now?

    Still kinda scruntched on your unordered list, besides that it's MUCH MUCH MUCH better :).

    hey, thanks! yeh, noticed that, and fixed the scrunchiness in the li and blockquote styles to match that of the rest of the post a little bit after I posted here. something in the way i did the CSS that wasn't talking to everything in my class... thanks for the design tips VxJasonxV, and the validation stuff, schestowitz! I hope some peops out there use the theme. ;)

    I can't make anything (of my own) look good for the life of me, but I believe now that yours looks SOOOO much better.
    Am I a muse? :P

    It's the second link on your dashboard. still a few bugs (not sure how to reload a backup; trackbacks don't seem to register as numbered comments; the use of uploaded images is a bit confusing in the post frame), but the new admin interface is a beauty, and the use of frames on the write pages makes posting a whole new experience.

    So that is not the version that is suppose to be released today?
