One of the main reasons why I wanted to re-design this site, was to make the previous design available as a wordpress theme. That’s right, the design that was seen in Smashing Magazine’s “50 Beautiful CSS-Based Web-Designs in 2006” is now available as a theme for you to use. Feel free to edit it, add to, remove parts, whatever you see fit.
The theme has a lot of parts already built-in that can be edited pretty easily. For instance, one of the most popular elements of the design was the tabbed menu towards the top. By default, only the front page (home) tab is shown, but with some minor css and html tweaks, the image used for the tabs also has an “about,” “contact,” and “archives” tabs.
This is the first version of the theme, and there are bound to be some needed tweaks and edits. If you come across any issues during use, please email me or comment here so I can fine-tune the theme a bit more. The css used throughout is very basic, and shouldn’t have any browser conflicts, although I’ve only been able to test on i.e. 6+ and firefox on a windows machine.
If you find the theme pretty useful, feel free to drop some coins in the tip jar. Every little bit helps!
I’ll be working on some more themes for download, and will post them when ready.
