WordPress Themes

Since switching to WordPress, I have been playing around with WordPress themes. I am looking for a minimalist style with black text on a white background. I prefer variable-width two-column themes while themes seem to be fixed-width. I am not a big fan of top navigation bars or header images.

  • ScribbishWP is a port of a Typo theme. It uses the hAtom microformat and is supposed to be easy to customize. It is a fixed-width theme and under Typo I had to tweak it to be wide enoguh to display images properly. Unfortunately, it doesn’t support some newer features like Sidebar Widgets.

  • Sandbox is a minimalist theme which is meant to be easy to be styled. It also has support for some newer features. I am going to play around and see if I can style it into something I like.

  • K2 is the followup to Kubrick, the default WordPress theme. It has lots of advanced AJAXy features. It is supposed to be easy to customize and style. There seem to be lots of variants.

  • Cutline is a nice, clean, two-column theme.

  • Regulus is two-column customizable theme. A little busy for my taste.
