My first attempt at a WordPress theme

  • # December 21, 2008 at 12:38 am

    A couple months ago I made an attempt at creating a simple yet effective WordPress theme from scratch. I keep forgetting to finish it totally, so there are probably some things that I’ve overlooked, but I think it’s ready for some criticism. What do you guys think?

    Nice idea. I like how it looks.

    A few things that should be fixed:
    Tag cloud: Gray on gray is hard to read on some monitors or by people who have vision problems.
    Links over pictures: Once again gray on gray plus transparency is hard to read.

    A few things that could be nice to add:
    In the navigation: make the links block elements and on rollover make them highlight the whole are area.
    Example: http://www.usabilitypost.com/2008/09/04 … ble-areas/
    Add another separator between elements in the sidebar.
    These are just things that might help but not actually necessities but niceties.

    Keep up the good work.
