This post was originally posted on March 7th, 2006 at 4:33 PM. However, I busted my blog by upgrading to the wrong version of WordPress and had to revert to a database backup. That resulted in the loss of this post.
I’m working on a new theme for my blog as I’ve grown tired of this one. You can check it out at my development blog. It’s still a work in progress and is based on andreas09, a template (I converted it to a WordPress theme) by Andreas Viklund.
If you have any suggestions about it, please let me know by leaving a comment on this post! I’m looking for it to be the best theme as possible. 🙂
Your new theme is really good… The header image if it is slightly big then it would look much better… By the way I like your present theme more than than your new one… this is my personal opinion…. 🙂
Yeah, someone else said they liked my current one better too. Perhaps I should just retool it a bit. :/
Nah, change is good, Viper! I say change it. I overhauled my theme recently too. Never looked back. Myself, I get bored with the aesthetics after a while and have to keep tweaking little things until I finally give up and just change the whole bloody theme.
Btw, how come your links prepend your base address. Like such:
Ahh, Click Counter plugin. That’s what I get for asking a question before googling it. 🙂
And for future reference:
You can check out what the new theme will look like on this post by using this link. 🙂
I really like the new theme. It is very clean and organized. BTW, you’ve got a pretty amazing blog here. I was looking at your plugin list and found several that I hadn’t heard of before. So are you going to release your theme when you are finished?
Most likely not. Even though it’s based on a popular template, it is slightly unique, so I’d like to keep it that way (unique and not on every site).
However, someone has publicly posted the andreas09 template to WordPress. I was tempted to use it, but I decided to start from scratch as I’m a coder (I prefer to code things myself) and because I didn’t want it exactly how they had it. It’s called WP-Andreas09 if you’d like to download it.
Nice site….was a lot of help with plugins.
I like your current theme too! I actually tried installing it onto my new wordpress blog but im not sure how to configure it properly and cant really be bothered at this stage sussing out all the code! lol
Hey there! You do know that Andreas09 has been ported into a very successful theme for WordPress already, right? There is nothing wrong with doing a new version of it (especially not when it looks as beautiful as your version – love the style switcher!), but I have to ask so you know what it will be compared to if you release it to the public. See here:
Let me know when it is finished, and I’ll post a link in my blog. =)
Ooo, hey there! 🙂
Yeah, I just wasn’t satified with that flavor of andreas09 (both in style and coding) and prefered to go my own route with it. I have a really crappy eye when it comes to web design (my thing is coding), so it may not turn out the best, but we’ll have to see. 😉
I also wasn’t particulary planning on releasing it to the public as while WP-andreas09 and andreas09 in general are most likely widely used, I’m not sure if I want to see my site looking exactly like another one. But again, we’ll have to see. 😉
