Well, I'm back again. The Regulus 2 theme by Binarymoon is a 2 column theme with very good structure, and an admin page to select color scheme and header image, and to choose what widgets ( calendar, blogroll, latest posts, etc ) you want to show in your sidebar.
I have done some chages to it.
First of all added a second sidebar to the left. Minimal changes to the stylesheet allow for the 2 to 3 column cahnge, still usable on an 800 by 600 pixel screen.
I have also added print styles to the end of the stylesheet - in effect hiding header and sidebars and relaxiing the width constraints of the content area. This allows for effective printing of content.
I have added a contact page template to the theme. To use it you create a page with contact as template - add some test if you like.
The 3 column variant is not officialy released, and some more styling is needed, but is approaching prime time.
The original author should have his say, I think, as this variant doesn't have a "new theme" status.
You can see the theme in action at PetitOn and download it for test here.
Read the original theme's changes.txt and my readme.txt for my changes and how to use some of the mew items.
If you have comments or find som peculiarities, plese drop me a line.
