    Default Who wants a wp theme ?

    Hello all.

    I have created a wordpress theme using a program called Artisteer.
    The problem is it won't work on my older version WP sites.

    I was wondering if anyone wanted to try it on a current version of Wordpress. Of course if you like the theme you can keep it.

    The latest version I tried was 2.21 Kind of worked here, problem with a missing function the_title_attribute.

    The link is http://www.topwebsecrets.com/wpblueonblue.zip

    I don't really use Wordpress too much any more. I am currently learning Drupal. I am considering creating a free themes website and want to include Wordpress Themes.

    Default Tested and Working

    Since I got no bites on my request, I went ahead and set up a new installation of WP. Interestingly enough I have a brand new icon in my Hosting Package(Hostmonster) With a Wordpress Logo.

    The Fantastico icon still allows you to install WP but I used the Wordpress Icon, hoping it would install a more recent version than Fantastico, which is usually a few versions behind current release.

    I don't know what the current version is but version 2.84 was installed. The theme is installed and working at this location if anyone wants to look at it. www.topwebsecrets.com/wptest
    I needed a testbed for the free themes site anyway so people can see what the theme will look like before downloading.

    The only thing I added was the login at the bottom that was missing from the theme. I will try to correct that in future themes if possible.

    This theme took me about 10 minutes to create. Any Feedback is appreciated.

    PJ how have you found the program to work with can you set up custom theme blogs like sweatyshop requires.

    @sweatyshop the forum function you have on your site is that a plugin you can get

    @ sweatyshop I looked at your blog after the last post and see you have the information there in regards to the plugin question.

    For your post in regards to putting video on your blog.

    If you want to keep under 5 mins which is a good time for post videos, get the pro version of jing it has a great function where it will record video from your web cam and export it straight to You tube there is no editing ability but if you muck around with for awhile it is a great cheap tool.

    You have the ability to switch from web cam to screen capture, with the ability to save screen shots as png files or host the video files with techsmith and you can either embed it in your html or have it as a link URL

    Regards Russell

    Pablo,

    I think your WP theme is absolutely beautiful! I may try to use it on one of my future blogs. Thank you!

    I like it Pablo. I think it is elegant. Only downside for me is the header is rather too deep. Remember Internet Marketers want as much above the fold as possible!

    Thanks for the theme!

    You could build an opt-in list like this -opt-in and you get a free theme every week...

    Just a thought!

    Good Idea Alex.

    When you say to deep you mean Height right ?

    Above the fold is a tricky thing. It depends on what resolution you are viewing it as.

    I use 1024x768 as a minimum. I think most users have at least that resolution, most are higher, especially with new monitors and laptops.

    What dimensions do you think would work better for the header ?

    If you've commented out the code, try refreshing your browser, you may be viewing a cached version.

    If commenting out did not remove it, just delete the code entirely. HOWEVER, I would make a backup copy of any and all files you're editing, just in case.

    Thank you very much.

    Clay:

    I like it's flexability and out-of-the box features. It seems a bit overwhelming at first, but once you get to know it, it is easier to manage than Wordpress.

    The content is the priority and is handled well.

    I have not had to mess with a single file yet to get things configured.

    The other thing I like is that I can use full php code if I like without a plugin.

    Simply put it is more of a full featured Content management system than wordpress.

    Wordpress blows it away on blogging, but that is what Wordpress was designed to do.

    Drupal does have a blog and a forum built in, but both lack the features you would really want.

    My main reason for investigating Drupal is that I wanted to mimic features found in Membership Platforms and that meant a full featured Forum. I know that wordpress has a forum plugin and you can probably integrate popular forums with it, but I have not seen any done as seamlessly as you can do with drupal.

    When I have Time I will create more themes for both Wordpress and Drupal and make them available to SSWT members.

    Thanks for the kind words about the Theme. If you have any requests on color or layout for future themes, let me know and I will try to crate them.

    Pablo
