Presenting the winner of theme battle #1, Slick Red. This theme, designed by Anto, features three widgetized areas and four different color schemes. This theme is coded for WordPress 2.7+ only and won’t work on earlier versions, and has features such as threaded comments. More info will be gone over below.
And now onto the other features in more detail…
As mentioned above, this theme comes in four different colors: red, green, blue, and brown. Red is the default color, although you can get an idea of what the other colors look like with the logo images below.
So how do you change the colors? Simple, use the built-in theme options panel and select the color of your choice from the dropdown menu.
As mentioned above, the default color is red, so you will have the red color scheme applied after activating the theme.
The other option is to remove the 389×63 widgetized ad area in your header. This might be useful if you don’t have anything to put there, and would rather not have an empty gray box in your header.
Like mentioned above, this theme has three widgetized areas. The sidebar, the header ad, and the 404 page.
This theme has an image-based logo. To edit it you will want to download the PSD file. Then simply reupload the logo.gif file in the images/red/ directory (change to your color of choice).
I hope you all enjoyed participating in the theme battle. Thank you to the 71 voters. Before the vote started, I predicted that Slick Red would win, but didn’t expect it to win by such a wide margin.
If any designers out there want to submit a PSD to compete in a theme battle, please check the theme battles page for more information.
Also, as promised on the theme battles page, the “losing” theme will also be released in PSD format. Check for the Green Shade PSD release post soon.
Let me know what you think of the Slick Red theme in the comments. As usual, please post any support requests in the forums.
