Theming

July 17, 2007 ::

One of the advantages of being flat on one’s back is I’ve had time to do a little WordPress theme design the last couple of days. I volunteered to host and build a new website for my parents’ church – the one they had before was, quite frankly, a ghastly design and layout and difficult to update and maintain. So, I moved their site to a WordPress installation on my server, and then set about modifying the “Sandbox”:http://www.plaintxt.org/themes/sandbox/ theme to my liking. I started out with something very “plain and basic”:http://www.sndbx.org/live-preview/ – no frills, just the basic elements in place – and ended up with something “a bit nicer looking”:http://ebcclarksonny.org.

I don’t know if I’ll release this theme publicly or not. I’d have to clean up a couple of the files a bit, since I added some custom coding to make a couple of the plugins work correctly. But it might be worth it.

Have anything to add to the conversation?
