    Just a post to let you know that I wrote a Magazine Theme, called OpenBook. It's free and do not require any manual editing of files.

    Download the OpenBook theme here.
    Licence: GPL.
    Restriction: User must keep the footer link.

    I was under the impression with GPL that a user could delete footer links etc if they desired.

    GPL or not, even if you do remove the link, I will not go to the justice court ;)
    It's just a normal way to say "thanks for providing a free premium theme".

    Greetings :)

    You should probably take the word "Restriction" out then - make it optional, most people will leave it if it's unobtrusively styled...


    # Integrated IE6 killer. If checked, IE6 will litterally crash.

    seems a bit extreme.

    Yes, it's not really a restriction, just something I ask, because this theme took time to develop, take time for providing free support, and is totally free to use. In my opinion, it's a good deal.

    Don't worry about the IE6 killer, it is totally optionnal. The blogger is free to decide to use it, or not.

    I looked at your personal blog (demo for the theme) -- you should put in something for people with javascript disabled, because it looks like crap when it is. You know, a notice to tell you that you need it turned on to view the site, or alternative content.

    A lot of Firefox users have no-script, which disables javascript by default, until a site is whitelisted.

    For a guy who's being aggressive about trying to kill IE6 (and believe me, I'm sympathetic to your goal), you should certainly try to accommodate Firefox users.

    Indeed it is a good idea, I keep it in mind for next versions :)
