    I know it sounds kind of silly, an alternative of an alternative.. haha!! Anyway, here's a preview of another customizable WP template courtesy of your own! :)

    I'm not done yet but I want to know what everybody thinks. Do we need another custom template? Am I lame for copying Mike's idea? Etc.. etc...

    Honestly it doesn't remind me of Kubrik at all, I think it can stand on its own without being labeled an 'alternative'. How fast does everything load?

  5. Interesting, will you be making this available?

    It's just an idea, right now it's still in the form of a mock-up in Photoshop. blogbuster I'll drop you a line if I decide to port this into WP. I could use some help with the XHTML/CSS tho, anyone wanna volunteer? I'll keep working on the iface and get back to you when I come up with something I'm happy with! :)

    rvblog, probably quite a mission. i've just managed to integrate wordpress into the same design as my static pages and wiki.

    you have a real hand at html and css. i don't know php though, and managed. it's best to have your own apache server with php, mysql and wordpress to play on. then you just need to be good at hacking, and play around with the stuff in the templates directory. it does make sense. kwiki has a easier template system. so without first having managed to integrate that, i might not have managed wordpress.

    one thing. it's a lot lot easier to create a template, to modify a template to near what you want and then to create static parts of your page to fit a simple template. don't like me make a complicated layout for your site and then want to integrate your blog into it.

    jerm, your template is looking great. love those smooth gradients. just keep developing it until you can call it a design.

    I like the border design a lot, and your fonts are clean and modern. One question: what does "Desktop" mean at the top of the righthand column?

    I really ought to look at Kubrick, since everyone's talking about it, and see what the advantages are. Right now my own blog's just using the Toni style from Alex King's site with a slightly different graphic, because I liked the clean look of it:

    I was planning to hire a friend of mine to do some more elaborate design, but that fell through, so I'm back to experimenting on my own. Hanging out here is certainly helping with that. >8->
