    Hey people,

    Here's presenting Split Magazine — http://www.split-magazine.com/

    Please tell me what you think of it.

    I'm also planning to redesign/restructure the site in a month or so, to add new enhancements, so I would also like some suggestions from you w.r.t. what you would like to see in a music magazine.

    Cheers!

    I love it! I am not going to subscribe via RSS.

    Thanks a lot :) I didn't get the 'not subscribe via RSS' bit. Did you not like the content, or do you like the design enough to keep coming back to the site instead of subscribing to the RSS feed(s)?

    Also, I'd like to get your suggestions on what features you would like to see in an online music magazine. Thank you :)

    that's pretty neat. the design looks clean, and the red-black-white-gray look seems good for the styles of music here. You gonna do this magazine site w/out ads?

    hey, if you redesign the site, would you submit the current theme for the WP community ?

    it really looks good ...

    well done ...

    Thank you all for your kind words :) I really appreciate it.

    @DGold: I'm hoping to get some ads in the near future, let's see how it goes. If you have any ideas, please let me know. My e-mail address is arun [at] split-magazine [dot] com.

    As I mentioned, I'm going to be redesigning the Web site, and the colour scheme will be changed from red-black-white-grey to something else. I assure you that it *will* look better than this, though :) Will keep you posted here.

    @hyperactive-media: I can't submit the current theme, as it is a (rather severe) modification of an existing WordPress theme — Slatystain — although I'm honoured that you asked me to. The upcoming new design will not be derived from any existing theme — it will be totally original. Once I redesign, I don't mind offering the new design as a theme if people seem to like it.

    @damienbuckley: Thank you :)

    I'd love to get some more feedback from you nice people. Also, no one has commented about what they'd like to see in a music magazine. I'd love to hear your suggestions.

    The layout looks great. Very clean and easy to navigate.

    Looks fantastic.

    Just one thing I noticed: If you go to add your email address to the newsletter form box that says 'E-mail Address' by default, that text doesn't disappear once the text box is clicked on.

    It would be better if the text disappeared when a user had the box active, and reappeared if they clicked somewhere else on the page.

    IMHO. Otherwise great.

    Yeah, I tried doing that, but for some reason it doesn't work with the current theme. I'll have it resolved in a few days. Thanks for the feedback :)

    "Once I redesign, I don't mind offering the new design as a theme if people seem to like it."

    Gotta say the re-design's really made a difference. Both compared to the elder one and to other WordPress sites. Would really love if the theme was released - even if I'd have to pay a bit to aquire the roots of it.

    Hey, moemar, Aimzter:

    Thank you for the kind words :)

    I wouldn't be able to release the *exact* same theme, because, obviously, I want my site's design to be unique — also, the functionality of my theme is unique to my site, it's not really a generic theme, as such.

    If you would like, I could create another 'generic' theme. I'd love to hear any ideas that you (and anyone else) might have about the same. (My e-mail address is listed in the 'About' section of my Web site.)

    Everyone has said it; but can't resist. Simple yet impressive. Good job.

    Love the design! It's really edgy, which I'm crazy about. Can we do a link swap? If only because this is the first time I've seen such a polished site devoted to contemporary Indian rock and as an Indian blogger, I'd love to link to it and have some traffic siphon back to me -- check my site out the list of already started threads.

    leMaxim, koaster, alphaoide: Thank you for the kind words. No, this theme is not available for download, but if you tell me what you would like to see in a theme, I can possibly make a new one based on that.

    mangopickle: I checked out your site, and some of the posts are pretty funny :)

    Thanks for the compliments :) Unfortunately, I don't do link swaps on my site, so that's out. Thanks for the offer, though.
