Need feedback on my WIP (14 posts)

    I'm redesigning my blog and I'm basing it on andreas02 as I don't have the artistic skills to come up with one from scratch.

    This is what I have so far (not too much different, but a lotta behind the scene changes):

    I thought I'd ask for some feedback on where I should go with it before I got too far. Also thought I'd get ask for some ideas on how to structure The Loop.

    Thanks! :)

    An excellent choice :)
    I too, am tempted to work with it.
    I could not advice you on the loop but be careful not to throw the theme out of balance.

    Still having trouble with coming up with a design for the Loop. :(

    i would remove the google ad from the top and put it under wise words..
    but otherwise it looked great!

    Not sure, if I understand your problem.
    If it is porting andreas02 to wp then you may examine this:

    This is partly based on andreas02.

    No, I'm just working on making a new theme for my site, the theme just happens to be based on a02. I'm not trying to make an exact copy of it for WP.

    However, I kinda like the Loop arrangement of that theme and it gives me some ideas for my own, so thanks! :D

    philiphotserv: good idea. :)

    Whatda think now? It looked pretty bare with nothing up there, so I put in a much smaller ad instead.

    I like it.

    The ad is small enough to grab attention, but not large enough to obscure the flow.

    Your font colors are easy on the eye, and your font choice makes for quick reading. It's not busy, or distracting from your principal motive: your content.

    Over all I like it.

    Well done.

    katie1: Thanks! :D

    Anyway, I think I have the Loop formatting done now for the most part: http://test.viper007bond.com/wordpress-latest/

    Now on to the sidebar and then the comments loop. :)

    It's coming along nicely if I may say so myself. :)

    I've pretty much finished the comments. Anyone care to give me a bit of feedback on them? You can check them out right here.

    I like it, too, and I'd be interested in downloading it.

    As also posted on my test blog:

    Well at this point, I'm not planning on releasing it publicly as I want to make my site unique and not have the exact same theme on tons of other sites.

    However, if you'd like to make something like it, I started out with this layout and then stole a bunch of inspiration from the K2 theme and some icons from the Silk icon set.

    Ugh, I'm having tons of trouble making my sidebar not look so crappy. Any suggestions?

    I'm looking to get most of the content from my current sidebar into the new theme, but I can't make it look good. :(
