Need a 3-column, flexible, cross platform theme recommendation please (9 posts)

    Hi there. I'm currently using a 2 col theme at my site (http://www.avalon5.com) - "Howl @ The Moon!" but I desperately need to move to a decent three column design which utilises the full width of the screen at 1024x.

    I've browsed the codex but nothing there really grabbed my attention, so now I'm asking here in the hopes that someone has taken an existing 3 col theme and made it better, or has created their own 3 col theme which isn't in the codex.

    Can anyone recommend a theme for me please? I really need to update the look at my site but I'm struggling to find a theme good enough or adaptable enough. Thanks in advance.

    I use the Rin-Tin-Tin theme. Check it on my site at http://www.jwurster.us/wordpress/. I also use 2 others (WordPress classic 3 column and Relaxation_3column) but them don't fill the screen so-to speak.

    You could also try Vesuvius 151. Although it has a max-width defined, it can be easily commented out, and it still works.

    The Rin-Tin-Tin theme I use is a variation on the original. It seems most appropriate for one called cOyOte.

    Actually jwurster, you may be able to help me :)

    I'm working on a test site at the mo, trying to adjust the rin tin tin theme to suit and I've run into three issues which you seemed to have solved. Can you offer some advice please?

    My test site is located at http://www.avalon5.com/wptest
    My original site is located at http://www.avalon5.com

    The issues are as follows:-
    1) In the left sidebar, under the "concept" heading I can't seem to get an image to display properly (the way it did in the original site)

    2) Recent comments don't display correctly (e.g. line breaks appearing when there should be none).

    3) Categories suffer from the same problem (e.g. line breaks). If you see my original site the number of entries is displayed after each category name, but with this theme it seems to stick a line break in first.

    Any help greatly appreciated as I plough through this work-in-progress over the next few days.
