    I have made a simple theme, and I was wondering what everyone thought. Is it too simple to package and distribute?

    Does it work okay in every browser? I have looked at it in Firefox and IE, there are some small differences, but they both still look pretty good.

    Check out http://www.phoenixrealm.com to see what the theme looks like. (It should be yellow, black and red)

    I still have more work to do if I am going to release it to the world, but it is pretty much ready for my site.

    Thanks to all those that respond to this post.

    Moi aussi.... clean, neat, allows content to shine - which is the point, eh?

    I think it is very nice, and would love to see you "finish" and release it. Sometimes, "Less is More", and the "simple" look conceals lots of careful work. Good Job!

    It looks great! =) Just a thought though, maybe try keeping the sidebar background the same from the top to the footer? It looks nice, just I don't care for themes that don't follow through with the sidebar to the footer like that. It makes it look semi-done, or half-assly done. Damn...there I go again lol. Drinking and posting.. but nah, in all actuality it looks great.. =)

    I was trying to figure out how to do just that spencerp. If you have any thoughts on how I can easily impliment that...let me know...else I will just have to research it. I would rather not change my code too much or use a heavy background image to accomidate something like that, especially since sometimes it breaks in IE.

    If you want the sidebar bg colour to go down to the bottom - google for "faux column".

    I love the blue, that should almost be released as a theme of its own. Great stuff. :)
