    I've released the first version of my new (and first) theme titled Automatic Midnight. It is dark, simple, and should work rather well for any blog that has a good amount of comments and a small amount of categories. You can view the way it works on my site : http://www.jcontonio.com and you can download the theme here, http://www.jcontonio.com/wpthemes

    I just added automatic updates as well as a couple other features to this theme. Now if there is an update available to the theme, it will display an alert on your website telling you (as long as you're logged in as administrator)

    Just thought I'd let you all know.

    Nice. Too dark for me, though the graphics lighten it up some....

    We're not going to agree about JD, though!

    Well, I actually like the layout. It's very clean and easy to use. A lighter look would be more of a draw for me. I'm just not into dark - when you get as old as I am, dark is really hard to read. And that's fine, though, because of course, I could always grab your theme and make it fit "me", since I do webdesign myself and changing the colors etc in a wp theme is no mystery to me.

    That's the thing you want to key on: flex. You want your theme to be able in essence to be all things to all people. You want to comment your css so folks can easily see where tweaks are able to be done without harm. You don't want your font sizes to be so solidified into the way the theme displays that no one can increase them without seriously borking the theme.

    Fine line and balancing act.... but y'know, wp themes are one of the most fun things around!

    [Yankees, Dodgers, Cowboys, 49'ers.... they're mine, I love them regardless.... grew up through the 60s on them and will never give them up....]

    As far as I can tell my theme works in WordPress 2.0.

    I can't read the URLs of "Pages" and "Popular" without highlighting. Ah, I noticed the text on the upper right, can't read it either. Now I noticed the footer, it's funny how things start to appear =P

    Good job anyways, I like the idea.

    Damn refreshing, feel free to delete the two posts below.

    most likely due to your monitor...if you have a low quality monitor or its not calibrated correctly, dark grays will be black.

    I really like it, although I'd prefer a bit larger text since it's white on black.

    Yes very nice, when I see the word simple I thought this will be ok for me... ;-)I have no idea as to the workings of wordpress and themes, just if it works or not, when I installed the theme I had an error pop up which said...

    Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in /home/edited/public_html/blogs/wp-content/themes/automaticmidnight/sidebar.php on line 29

    Not using wp v2.0

    tomcatuk, it might be a php version you are using or maybe you don't have something setup...it has to be the sidebar picking up the most popular themes or something of the sort. What version WordPress are you using?

    Thanks everyone for checking out the theme! Updates soon I swear.

    Very cool theme! But.....I get the very same sidebar error - under the "Popular" heading - that Steve (Tomcatuk) got:

    Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in /home/friendsw/public_html/smendoza/wp-content/themes/automaticmidnight/sidebar.php on line 29

    None of the links show.

    I'm running version 1.0 on WP 2.0. Any ideas on how to fix this?
