    Introducing my second WordPress theme: MinusOne. Smooth, rounded, two column theme with a top navigation bar. Also features integration with Ultimate Tag Warrior and provides social bookmark links for each post.

    See it in action at my site, or go straight to the info/download page.

    As always, comments and critique are appreciated.

    Hi,
    Thanks for your new theme. Looks like fine to me. Soft designed.
    What Social bookmark links are for ? Meaning, these 4 links could take place in the side bar? and free some room in the post :-)
    Cloud tags is great.
    I try it :-)

    Looks nice. Like the layout and the colors.

    Only thing that I can think of that I would change would be to shade the "Filed Under" section so that it is distinct from the rest of the post.

    Also,if you have a lot of pages and/or a long blog title, it messes up the formatting of the top bar.

    I have your theme active on my site currently, as I'm checking it out, and you can see what I mean.

    It may be a resolution issue on my computer, but I'm not sure.

    Overall, I really like the theme and may continue to use it on my site and just customize the layout of the sidebar and some minor formatting stuff to suit what I need.

    Great job.

    Thanks for the comments.

    eeeoa - I'm not exactly sure what you mean about free up room, etc. For information on social bookmarks see this article.

    Vryce - I'll add the shading thing to my to-do list for the next release. Or do you think perhaps it would be better added to the tags bar?

    Also, I understand the problems, or rather, limitations with the top navigation bar. Being that this is a fixed width theme, there's really no great way around it. Three suggestions would be: 1) edit the top graphic to be able to include your blog title in a more compact way or 2)display the pages in the sidebar, coding in 3 or 4 important navigational links in the topbar instead, and 3) eliminate the links in the topbar and use it just for your title.

    EDIT: looks like you fixed it, I'm assuming you changed some padding or width values. Looks good.

    I took out the call in the header file to list_pages and put in a hard coded list I had in a prior theme.

    The shading part, I'd say either leave it in the post body section, and maybe add a div for it so it gets some shading, or you could add it to the tag list and have that bar look like

    Tags: list of tags

    Will look at both options and see how they look before deciding, I'll be sure to let you know when I update.

    Just as a heads up, I have now released v1.1 of MinusOne. This update fixes a few spacing/padding errors, provides templates for tag archives using Ultimate Tag Warrior, and more.

    For a full list of changes, to see the theme in action, and to download, see this post.
