Finally, Amalgam is now ready to go public. I spent some time polishing it off, including cleaning up the CSS stylesheet so that it’s organized in a somewhat sane way. The theme also validates as XHTML Transitional if that matters to you. This is a clean and quiet theme, no loud colors here. The sidebar is divided into ‘boxes’, each containing one piece of content.
I have to thank Khaled Abou Alfa and Joshua for their template, Rin. As you can see, this template shares some similarities with that theme. It was the inspiration for my first crack at this WordPress theming thing. This is still very much a work in progress and I have some ideas I will implement. If you have any comments or opinions, feel free to speak up. I’d appreciate any constructive criticism!
This theme has been tested to work in Firefox, Internet Explorer, Konqueror and Opera. I haven’t tested any other browsers, so if anyone’s reading this from a different browser, I’d appreciate a word or two about any problems or lack thereof.
I’ve created two versions of this theme. One is optimized for 1024×768 resolution while the other is suited for 800×600. The demos are here.
Here’s the change log if you’re curious as to what’s been fixed/added.
Version 1.0.9 (April 2, 2006) Fixed up a few visual issues. (mostly in the comments form)
