Theme update (again!)

And so, for the third time this year, I’ve completely re-themed this site. Taking a very different tack from the last theme, I’ve tried to keep this one as simple as possible, with just a few subtle touches here and there to add interest. The palette is more subdued, which hopefully means that reading the text is a more pleasant experience. I’ve also done away with the multi-column body text in favour of a fixed-width design.

At the same time, though, I have endeavoured to use some of the new features available in modern web browsers — gradients, shadows, transitions, generated content, and so on. I’m fairly happy with the result — I think it’s a clean, unobtrusive theme that’s not too in your face. Feedback and criticism welcome! πŸ˜€

    Very nice. I particularly like the background to the page. Overall, a v. clean look. Not sure if it’s a bug or not, but it appears that the header and footer sections have nice drop shadows on the sides, but the main page area doesn’t. (At least on Firefox 3.6.latest) Fixing that would really make the theme pop.

    Best theme on here to date!

    Oh, one more thing: seeing as you don’t *actually* appear to use Captcha, why is there still a link saying “Spam protection by WP Captcha-Free”?

    Nice look in general, but I have to admit that the background looks rather bad compared to the rest.

    Nicholas: “WP Captcha-Free” does exactly what the name suggests, it prevents spam without having to use a captcha. πŸ™‚
