Excuse me for a moment while I toss out a little mini-rant…
I’ve been keeping my eyes peeled for a nice single-column theme to use on my blog. I’ve got Daydream, which I’m using now and that I like quite a lot, but I’m always interested in finding some new ones, as well. Here’s the problem I keep running into, though:
I wonder if WordPress theme designers actually know what a “one-column” theme actually is. You see, I’ve found two themes in the last week that were described as being single-column themes, yet when you navigate to the download page and look at the theme’s screenshot, there it is! Two columns! There’s a main column for the content and a second column for the sidebar. It’s also fruitless to search the official WordPress themes directory for exactly the same reason – half the themes listed in the one-column area are actually multiple columns. For once, I wish WordPress theme designers would learn their numbers.
And I _still_ wish there were more crisp, clean one-column themes out there.
