If you are a frequent visitor of mor10.com or if you’ve visited Design is Philosophy in the past you will have noticed that a major face lift took place last night. What you see today is the beta test of a new WordPress theme I’m working on that in not too long will be released to the WordPress Theme Directory for you to play around with. The theme is actually part of a much bigger project I am working on at lynda.com – more info to come – and in designing and building it I’ve endeavored to follow the most recent standards and trends and look forward into what is coming on the horizon where web publishing is concerned.
Changes will happen to this theme on a daily basis for a while yet and improvements will be built in before the theme reaches the directory. As part of this process I’m test driving it live on my site to crowd source the initiative.
Once the theme is done and released I will also publish it and a growing list of extensions on GitHub for you to check out and collaborate on.
Have your say
So, what do you think? Do you see anything you like or don’t like? Are there elements missing or things that are not working as expected? Let me know in the comments below as I work up to the release.
I’d also like your input on the following:
- Are Post Formats important to you, and if so which formats would you use?
- Is an author box displaying author bio and other info something you want or would you rather leave that to a plugin?
- Would you like the option of turning off the right-hand sidebar?
- Would you like a no-sidebar page template?
Of course I cannot guarantee to meet any requests, but I only have my own opinions to go on and I’m releasing this to the public so knowing what the public wants is important.
