The latest incarnation of Beccary is now live, as you can hopefully see.
I’d known for a while that I wanted to do a darker blue and green theme but didn’t really have any ideas beyond that. Then a few weeks ago JD of Weblogs.us (who as you may know sponsors and hosts my WP themes) sent me Steve Krug’s Don’t Make Me Think. What happened exactly is beyond me, but after reading it a little screenshot with all these page elements and colours sitting just as you see them popped into my head.
The tree is from IStockPhoto and all icons are either from or modified from FamFamFam’s Silk Icon set. I know that the sidebar displays funky in IE5, I’m still working on ironing that out. Additional bug reports are welcome.
Now I don’t usually release my current themes to the public (blame it on my inner narcissist) but depending on public response I am considering releasing this one (replacing the tree and icons of course).
On the plus side it could work at different widths and with a lot of colour schemes. In fact, I was thinking I could package it with a few schemes – not only would that make it more interesting, but it’d then be much easier for users to add their own colours.
On the downside, I have absolutely no idea how to make the sidebar sections alternate with widgets. Hmm…
What do you reckon?
Edit:It’s now 12:10am, April 1st. I obviously didn’t make it. Hopefully there’ll be time to finish fine-tuning things this week, but no promises since I tried that already and it just sucks when they fall through. Becca’s sorry, she really tried.
Edit #2: It’s still coming, I swear! I’ve been sick as a sick dog over the past week though, so this will have to receive a to-do list demotion until I’ve caught back up with studying and work.
