Today we have a very clean theme designed by Anto, which I then coded into XHTML/CSS and ported to WordPress. It’s a two column theme that uses only two images (not including the logo). Everything else is CSS-based, which makes it very easy to modify colors and such. More on this will be gone over below. This is coded for WordPress 2.7+ only and has features like threaded comments and comment pagination. It also has a widget-ready sidebar.
And now onto the color schemes and logo image…
Want More Color Schemes?
Like I mentioned above, this theme only uses two images. Those are the 1 pixel wide gradients in the post and sidebar headings called p-heading.gif and s-heading.gif. Everything else can be edited in the CSS, which makes it very open to color customizations.
Anto and I decided that it would be cool to include new color scheme stylesheets and integrate them into a future version of this theme. So how do you suggest new color schemes? Two ways:
- Submit a stylesheet along with two 41×1 gradient images for the post and sidebar headings. E-mail me if you want to send this as an attachment
- Simply suggest which colors you’d like to see in the comments of this post.
We’ll then create and include the best color schemes in a new version of the theme, which you would be able to select in a theme options page, similar to one of our other Anto-designed themes, QuadStripe.
Changing the Logo
Included in the theme is a PSD file where you can change the text of the logo. If you would rather have a text-based logo, simply comment out the lines between <!– Start Image Logo –> and <!– End Image Logo –> in the header.php file, and then uncomment the line with the h1 tag. You should have something like this:
<h1><a href="<?php echo get_option('home'); ?>/"><?php bloginfo('name'); ?></a></h1>
Hope you all like the theme. Again, please let us know any new color scheme suggestions so we can create the stylesheets and bundle them into the next version of the theme.

Looking for web hosting?
Question: What's the best type of web hosting?
Answer: The kind you don't have to worry about.
And that's precisely why I recommend HostGator. I've been using them myself for years and they've been nothing short of superb.
Fast load times, great support, WordPress-friendly, and good prices. Not much more you can ask for.
New customers can get 25% off of any HostGator web hosting package with the coupon: themelab25percentoffNote: I am a HostGator affiliate, but that doesn't make my recommendation any less genuine.
