    What I'm looking for is a black background with light color text theme that has a wide center column, and narrower two outer columns, with a full width banner area on the top. I'm having a lot of trouble finding such a theme, I found this:

    but I'm looking for something a little more modern.. Any ideas?

    Have you tried the tag filter search? I see a few there.

    You can also look at three-column themes and use CSS to change the colors to suit your tastes. Color is usually relatively easy to change; design/layout is harder.

    I was not at all impressed with the tag filter search on this site, it wasn't turning up anything useful. I found another one:

    This might work because it's showing exactly what I want to have which is a big full width graphic at the very top, followed by the rest of the site. Only thing I'd have to fix are the colors in the middle column. It just seems that these themes are not "cutting edge" as in including a lot of the newer features that are being built into themes lately..

    Well, this is a free theme repository. If you want bells and whistles, there are a number of commercial theme vendors out there. You get what you pay for!

    I don't have any problem paying for the theme. My point is that I cannot find any of the big name theme providers that provide this type of theme.

    My Oenology Theme might work; it has optional, dark "varietal" (i.e. "skin") options, and has an optional, three-column layout such as what you describe.

    Hmm, I went ahead and purchased one that should be ok,, but can I see your Oenology in action (in black) anywhere?
