Almost Complete

Well, so far I’d say the new design has been working out pretty well. My biggest gripes with what I’ve got right now are the comments area as well as the crowded-ness of the sidebar. I wanted to clean up the theme by moving much of the sidebar content to the bottom, but it seems like that big ELA list is still cluttering things up. I’ll probably end up having to create a two pages dedicated to archives and category browsing. For the archives, categories and searches, all that shows up right now is the title and a little bit of info regarding the post. I’m going to look into showing a small excerpt.

Finally, I’m really going to put a push on learning/hacking some AJAX functionality into the theme. I’m specifically looking at search (which I’ll try to get livesearch going for) some sort of on-the-fly functionality for the recent posts module to allow moving back and forward, a la Binary Bonsai. As well, AJAX comments would probably be a nice little addition. That’s all I’ve got on my plate for now.

  1. I love your hemmed theme just the way it is right now. But I see it isn’t being distributed as of now. Is there any way I could receive this theme now? My primary email is rockchalk.kr(at)gmail.com

  2. Thanks for the kind comment. I wasn’t planning on releasing it publicly just yet, but if you’d like to use it I don’t mind sending a zipped copy over to you. I’m not sure what could be potentially broken however, so if you have any problems, just give me a shout.

  3. Hey Charlie, I am also looking for a new theme – I would love to use Hemmed. If you could email it to me it would be great, I will make sure you get big attribution props because I really really like it 🙂

  4. No need to give any props, I mean I’ve already got my name in the footer. 🙂 I’ll wrap it up and send you an email later today. For now I’ve got to get to work. 🙂

  5. I would LOVE to have this theme as well! I have been searching for something along the lines of Hemmingway-this one seems so much cleaner! My email is mudbug73[at]verizon.net

  6. Alright, if you read this post I made on the homepage, you’ll see that I was initially unsure if I wanted to release the current theme to the public. Since I’ve already privately sent the theme to a couple people and others seem to show an interest in it, I’ll clean things up and release a public version (hopefully) over the weekend.

    So if you don’t mind, just hold on a for a couple days and I’ll put up a link to download it, with some proper documentation.

    Thanks for all the kind comments. 🙂 It’s stuff like this that keeps me wanting to do more and more.

  7. Hi! I’ve been looking for something a bit different for a long time, and I just love your Hemmed theme. Beautiful typography and nice use of color. Great work!

    Hope you release it soon!
