Springer 3-Column Theme released (12 posts)

    Just wanted to announce a new Three-Column theme that I adapted for WordPress... I like the look of three columns, and didn't see a lot of well-developed ones for WordPress.

    The theme is Springer, and you can see it in action on my blog, Paradoxdruid.com.

    I think it's pretty nifty, of course, so I just wanted to mention it and share the design back to the community.

    Pretty nice! Looks good in FF 1.5RC2 and IE 6, even at 800x600 (though with a horiz. scroll of course); only problem I see is that the calendar seems to be "squished" - with all the numbers running right on top of each other (all resolutions from 800x600 to 1600x1200, two different 17" monitors).

    You might want to contact shadow at themes.wordpress.net and get it submitted there as well....

    PS: if it were me, I think I might want to make the background graphic a little less obvious, and maybe greenish instead of grey....

    Thanks for the comments, vkaryl!

    I removed my custom calendar code (it was a plugin) and replaced it with the standard WP code, adjusting the CSS to style it properly-- looks much better (and my theme is at version 0.3, oh boy).

    I sent a contact form-mail off to themes.wordpress.net, we'll see what happens.

    (Hehe.. you caught my blog when I was playing with background images. It's back to blank behind the page container for now ;-) )

    Yep, that's nice too - though I do like a bit of background interest, just less "obvious" I guess. Jen at geeksmakemehot.com has some really nice pales that you could check out....

    I left a comment on your blog concerning the calendar problem before I read the solution here. Sorry, I corrected the function call and it works fine.

    I noticed another problem with my blog. When I click on a comment, it does not appear in the pop-up window, but rather in a new browser window. Do you know what might be wrong?

    Hey Jim-

    Sorry about the outdated function call... I fixed the .zip file of the theme thanks to your feedback. I hope you like the theme!

    If the comments are appearing in a new browser window, but not a popup, my first thought would be that you have Javascript disabled. If that's not the case... I'm not sure. Caroline at Soul Doodles installed my theme, and her pop-ups are working fine.

    When I go to your blog, the pop-ups work. On my blog, the Linkdumps posts open in a pop-up, but the recent comments don't.

    Ah, I had to set that in the options for the Recent Comments Plugin:

    If you go to Options -> Recent Comments, change the text template to:
    <a href="%comment_link" title="%post_title, %post_date" onclick="wpopen(this.href); return false"><b>%comment_author</b></a> (%post_title): %comment_excerpt<br />

    yes, pretty one, but 3 column theme does bad in 800X600 screen ! So most of us like 2 or 1 columns, I think, what about others?

    [moderated: no sigs please]
