Delight ain't so delightful in IE7... (4 posts)

    In fact, it's downright nasty.

    I like the look of this theme, but it is not robust enough to be a featured theme. If you start opening it in various browsers, and zooming in and out, it breaks pretty easy :(

    For me it works perfectly on a IE7 and other browsers. Zooming in and out you can break any pro theme as well!

    I like it a lot. Cheers.

    Don't get me wrong, I really like the look of it too, but it still needs a lot of work to the code, to be a featured theme it should work better in all browsers.

    Try zooming in and out on WordPress.org with IE7, the whole website scales well. This is true of some of the other featured themes too.

    If you really start digging around in the CSS, you'll see what I mean, there are margins set for a lot of elements that should have used padding instead, it ends up not being very precise.

    And the font sizes are all fixed as pixels, so you can't make them any bigger or smaller, a better theme would use relative values like percents or ems.

    It's just begging for a 2.0 :)

    Zooming or no zooming, it looks bad on even the latest Firefox. The content isn't properly centred – there just seems to have been a left margin applied, which is silly, because it doesn't account for the for the fact that different people have different-sized screens.

    I don't have anything against pixel-sizing text in this day and age, but this theme is a bit rushed-seeming still.
