  • Hi everyone!

    I’m searching for a super basic theme that looks (exactly) like my current blog layout (2 columns; sidebar left-aligned)

    Reason: I have been told that (for a beginner) it’s better to start with a basic style instead of the Kubrick style.
    You might wonder why since I did a pretty good job (ugh) customizing the Kubrick style into what I have now? Well.. it’s Mozilla vs. IE. that I am having troubles with.. I can’t get things how I want them to be.. style’s too ‘extensive’ if that makes sense?

    I’ve already checked but I haven’t found what I am looking for.

    Any help/tips are appreciated!

    Ps: I’m using WP 1.5.2

  • What are you tring to do on your current site. It might be easier to just fix the style code there instead of building a new layout..

    Well I just thought it’s easier to start with a basic style and then rebuild what I have now.

    The kubrick style is pretty extensive you know. For a beginner like me there’s too much css in the style.css; I just can’t see the wood for the trees.

    I encountered the first problems when I added a backgroundimage to my blog.. haha.. that’s when I realized how messed up everything is 🙂

    Take a look at the ‘Classic’ theme that comes pre-installed with WordPress. It has a couple of problems but it’s much simpler and easier to work with than Kubrick.

    you could take a look at the classic theme, Or you can just contact me and I could help ya with the css editing.

    Interesting. Will do and will let you know.

    And thanks Lash, who knows I’ll drop you a line when it’s doing my head in 🙂

    It’s not basic, but it is simple. Try

    Nice one, Thanks!
