    I scraped together a new theme during my downtime last week, and I'd appreciate any help in debugging it, particularly in WinIE (I haven't put together an IE stylesheet yet because I'm not sure what the big issues are).

    It's far from finished, so any comments would be greatly appreciated.

    It looks fine. Not sure I would consider it a theme... But that's just me.

    I think this is a great theme.
    Looks like there is alot of unique css work that has made this theme structurally different than alot of other themes.

    are you going to make this available for download?

    Wouldn't consider it a theme?

    What would you consider it?

    I think it looks awesome!

    I'll make it available for download as soon as I've got the bugs worked out of the plugins, hopefully this weekend.

    And changing the images should be really simple - I'll write up a description soon.

    Thanks for all the interest. I wasn't sure if I should make this available or not, but if people like it I'm more than happy to share!

    I like themes that try a different structure. Good work!
    The font is really to small though!

    yas, your theme seems like it would be geared for people that use wp for a CMS and not just a blog.

    "Wouldn't consider it a theme?

    What would you consider it?"
    haha, thats what I thought to myself.

    Problem is this: this is exactly the kind of out-of-the-box thinking that makes me want to chuck the template I've been working on.....

    If that was too subtile, it means I like enough to dump what I've been working on and try something else.

    Ha ha. for the above comments. Yes I dont coinsider it a theme! It looks like a webpage plain and simple. Nice work, I'm not taking that away from him. Theme is a generic term in the case of WP, I understand that. So before you chime in and comment, and try to be funny, understand what you and I think may be different.

    edit: As an example this blog http://www.hogit.org/ and this blog http://blog.energypaws.com/ have a theme feel to them, as many others I have seen here and other WP's sites on the web. Maybe that makes a little more sense now.

    Aaaaah. I see now.... theme (CSS, HTML etc), vs a theme (like for a party or a gathering). Yes, in THAT context, not a theme. But in context of a series of files to convey a look, yes it is.... depends on you definition of "is" is. ;P

    yas - like I said before "It looks fine."

    Thanks for the kind words, Louis. You can download it and activate it using the presentation menu, so for what it's worth that's why I call it a theme.

    TG, I made this "theme" to spark my own creativity, not stifle others! Keep working on your theme, don't trash it and start over - it's you're own outlet and reflects your personality. That's the whole point of theming blogs!

    As for Kiwi, I'll post here when I feel the beta is stable enough to let others test it out. Thanks for the support everyone, you make long nights fighting with PHP and CSS well worth it.

    yas - it wasn't a stifling of creativity... it was more of an epiphany and a "now why didn't I think of that" kind of moment. It's gotten me to thinking, which is a bad thing because my new theme isn't done yet....

    I think its been extremely well done. And whats more the content is worth reading as well. Excellent work, IMO. Not "just another theme"

    No, Kiwi hasn't been released yet. I'm currently developing a version of the theme that will be a bit easier to customize and make your own.

    I'll post an update detailing the to-do list and how far along I am. Hopefully, Kiwi will be out in beta for you all to play with and debug in the coming weeks.

    As far as the plugins go, I'll post the_feature() source sometime tonight or tomorrow, hopefully someone with more extensive php skills (and time) can help me debug and streamline it. The the_meta_image() plugin source is already out, suggestions welcomed on it as well.

    The Featured Post plugin is available as promised. Here.

    It's alpha material, so backup those databases before using if you're going to help test and develop it.

    Sorry to keep everyone waiting for the public release. I think I've got most of the major bugs worked out, so I'll be releasing the beta version into the wild this week.

    More details to come...

    Good theme Yas. I especially liked the place where one can highlight special places of the websites (I call it spotlight). GOod theme indeed bu a tad too late for me to switch over now :-)

    It's great, but the text is WAY too small.

    You guys have telescopic eyes or something?
