New Theme

Yes, if you are reading this on my site, and not in a reader, I have tentatively chosen a new theme.  I interviewed dozens of them, and this theme seems to be happy and feel at home.

Although I have already heavily modified it, it just isn’t quite what I want it to be yet.  I’ll continue to tweak it over the next few days before deciding if I keep it or not.  I might just convert back to my old theme.  We’ll see.

In the meantime, if you like it, hate it, or don’t care then please let me know in the comments.


  1. I did revert to my old theme.  No real technical reason.  I just didn’t understand the licensing rules of the "new" theme I just discarded.  Did they mean I had to keep the links to the blatant advertising sites in the template? If not, why are they buried in 4-5 places and so difficult to remove?

    Probably time to do a custom theme.

    Or to quit worry about the theme altogether.

    In any case, we are back to my tried and true (except it barfs on TED videos) theme. 

  2. @Ike – draggable yes (not sure about closeable).  But in Flock I can drag them here (not that it’s a design goal or anything).

    I really want to do a custom theme – I just am not yet ready to define what that may look like.  I’m really waiting for WordPress 3 before I make that commitment.

  3. Doesn’t the iTheme come with draggable and closable widgets?
