I created a fresh install of the latest nightly (9-22-04) and found in the administration control panel the “Presentation” link. I thought themes would be a cool feature, but didn’t realize how cool until I found a Kubrick version prepared for the 1.3alpha. It was as simple as uploading the files to the wp-content/theme directory and activating the theme through the site administration control panel…WordPress automatically recognized that the theme was available for activation.
This is going to be a great addition to WordPress when version 1.3 is finally released. I suspect any theme created right now will run into the possibility of being broken by the time 1.3 is finalized…but I can’t help but entertain the idea that all the templates WordPress users like to use–Gemini or Kubrick, etc (not to mention new templates)–will be available as themes once 1.3 is finalized.
I can’t wait to hear the details on how to create themes.
