New design – WordPress themes

I was looking into WordPress themes today and I found a few interesting sites with freely downloadable themes for WordPress 1.5.

I found one called ShadedGrey that I liked so I downloaded it and made it active. I had a couple of issues with its setup and I had to modify the files to get it to work (I had to delete the wp-blog-header.php line at the top of the files – the one it says not to delete!) but looking at the theme onscreen, I think it was worth the effort.

There are a few minor CSS issues I need to tie down still (the links are displaying too small) but I think this look is an improvement for the site.

  1. I have installed in quite a few websites and did not face the problem.

    I believe it is something to do with WP itself, as it is still under development and they might be changing so many things in the code base.

    Thanks for letting me know, I will do the needful corrections, because I want ShadedGrey to live longer.


  2. I’m glad it wasn’t just me. Maybe as the 1.5 development moves along the links issue will go away.
