Whiteboard WordPress Theme Change

2012 May 23


Just exploring a new theme.

    No nested menus.

    manual toggle of comments – not so good
    menus are not nested – not so good
    very clean – that’s good
    wordpress $30 for custom XML – not so good (one reason I’m leaving the old choco theme behind
    reply buttons for comment thread on front page are on top of thread.

    Looks rather cluttered, IMHO.

    The distinction between the comments at the bottom of one post, and the start of the next post, is not particularly clear.

    Also, unlike the previous theme, at the bottom of the post it doesn’t show a count of how many comments there are. Can’t speak for others, but I like that feature.

    Appreciate your thoughts. I’m dissatisifed with most of the free themes and don’t feel like shelling out $30/yr for the priviledge of creating or modding my own. I’m not sure what’s next.

    Seems I’m back with the theme I first started with.
    Although the Andreas theme is pretty clean – but looks just like noconsensus – maybe I can find a set of options to make them distinct.

    I can’t believe you won’t be able to find something there:


    Smashing Magazine usually rocks. There is also A List Apart.

    Speaking of which, Jeffrey Zeldman suggested this resource:


    If you need some guidance, you can email me.

    Good luck!

    Thanks for the offer! The problem right now is that I am currently on wordpress.COM. Here my choice of free themes is limited and the ability to use custom CSS or to modify the underlying templates costs $30 a year. Not a huge expense, but annoying. Especially since I already have a webhost service rhinohide.org which I am using for data storage and ‘off-site’ processing. It includes a wordpress option and I have already set up wordpress on that site to play with. Right now, there is a chance that I will pick up my bags and move over there. Maybe.
