Looking for a basic theme (8 posts)

    Hi everyone!

    I'm searching for a super basic theme that looks (exactly) like my current blog layout http://www.thisishamid.com/blog (2 columns; sidebar left-aligned)

    Reason: I have been told that (for a beginner) it's better to start with a basic style instead of the Kubrick style.
    You might wonder why since I did a pretty good job (ugh) customizing the Kubrick style into what I have now? Well.. it's Mozilla vs. IE. that I am having troubles with.. I can't get things how I want them to be.. style's too 'extensive' if that makes sense?

    I've already checked http://themes.wordpress.net/theme-viewer.php but I haven't found what I am looking for.

    Any help/tips are appreciated!

    Ps: I'm using WP 1.5.2

    Thanks,
    Hamid

    What are you tring to do on your current site. It might be easier to just fix the style code there instead of building a new layout..

    Well I just thought it's easier to start with a basic style and then rebuild what I have now.

    The kubrick style is pretty extensive you know. For a beginner like me there's too much css in the style.css; I just can't see the wood for the trees.

    I encountered the first problems when I added a backgroundimage to my blog.. haha.. that's when I realized how messed up everything is :)

    Take a look at the 'Classic' theme that comes pre-installed with WordPress. It has a couple of problems but it's much simpler and easier to work with than Kubrick.
