    I thought I'd post a new photoblog theme I've cooked up:

    http://photo.orbyonline.com/

    It's based off of Doug Bowman's photo site.

    The theme features full EXIF data support, photos are organized by albums, and remote rollovers for easy navigation once in the actual photos.

    Let me know what you think.

    Tom; as a semi-professional photographer and as a Christian Web Developer, I must say I am speechless of how you have created your WordPress site to mimic in functionality and appearance to D. Bowman's Moveable Type photo blog.

    I am eager for when you release the theme for the WP community to use. I think that you will have made a SIGNIFICANT contribution to the community and everyone will appreciate your work and effort.

    I am definitely going to BOOKMARK your site for future reference.

    I am planning on releasing this, I just wanted to get some feedback and make sure there was interest in me doing so.

    I've made a small number of changes to the WordPress MySQL tables that are non-destructive (basically adding a datestamp) that will need documentation, and have to clean up a few of my custom functions to make them faster and more secure.

    Not yet, but it's coming.

    I'm moving to another state and switching jobs at the end of the month - so this project has moved down the priority list until I get everything in order.

    Good luck on the move and switching jobs.

    Thanks for the update, I have it in my favorites and I will keep checking back to see the progress. Are you planning on posting in this thread when it's completed?

    Sure, I'll repost to this thread. I'll probably also create a new thread as well that better describes the theme.

    Nice!

    You mentioned on your site that the hack you had to do was adding columns to some tables. Couldn't you just make use the custom fields?

    If you want to release this, you don't want to hack it like that. You could seek for advise here or chatroom #wordpress for better implementation of your theme.
