WordPress 2.0 specific themes starting to show up

Posted on January 5, 2006. Filed under: 3 columns, WordPress 2.0, WordPress Themes |

I’ve come across my first theme that is specific to WordPress 2.0. It’s called WP-Andreas09, and is
“a WordPress port of an open source template by Andreas Viklund called andreas09. WP-Andreas09 is a full width, 3 column theme with a fluid central column and it comes in 6 different colours that can be changed from within your WordPress options panel.”
wp-andreas09.jpgHere’s a thumbnail from a sight called Souldoodles (cool name!) which currently is utilizing the theme  Sorry I wan’t able to get a better picture within the actual post – but if you click on the thumbnail you should be able to see the full screenshot.  And of course, you can always visit Souldoodles to see a live demo for yourself 🙂

Andreas is a true talent… It is fun that he lets other coders do the themes, so there are several versions of some of his templates. 09 for WP is really good by the way, but my favorite is definitely 01 which is not yet available for WP from what I can tell. Hope to see it soon though.

And when WP-Andreas01 comes, I’ll pray to all possible gods that it will be picked up by WordPress.com so people there can use it. It will be totally worth it!

I think Andreas himself is planning on releasing the WordPress andreas01 theme when he gets the time.

I think we are going to see a lot more advanced Themes coming out with customization features, like this and the Regulus 2 from Binary Moon, though I don’t think it is specifically for WordPress 2.0.

I do know that the WordPress developers worked overtime to put in a lot more API hooks into WordPress to help plugin authors and Theme designers really get into expanding what they can customize and change. While WordPress 2.0 on the surface looks like the changes have been purely cosmetic, underneath the hood, a lot has happened to make WordPress 2.0 lean and mean.

Regulus 2.0 was released before Andreas and Regulus is specifically for wordpress 2.0 – It won’t work in anything less. The new version of Andreas also features a few bits of code from Regulus so look out for some cool new features 🙂

Sorry for the plug! =)

rudd-o is a nice theme, but it isn’t WP 2.0 specific (which was kinda the point of this post)

Also, the distribution version includes your adsense code (a no-no) as well as a number of other personal items that make it a beautiful and expertly designed theme for use on your website, but not well suited for the general public until you make some modifications to it to pull out some of the references to yourself (like the blogroll being called “Rudd-O’s Favorites” and the graphic of the R-Zone in the header, etc)

I grant you the adsense foul-up. Really sorry, but I don’t have the time to maintain separate forks of the theme. It’s not supposed to be consumed “out-of-the-box”. You’re supposed to edit it and start using it as basis for a personal theme.

This theme can now be used here on wordpress.com! I looove that… 🙂
