New PrimePress Theme Installed

Send to Kindle

I have been wanting to change the theme on this site for a while. I am not all that sure why, perhaps, just because it’s so easy to do with WordPress. I liked the theme that I had for the most part, but I wanted an even cleaner, simpler, sharper look.

For a while, I toyed with putting in one of the newer, more complicated (as in flexible) theme frameworks, specifically, Hybrid or Carrington, and really tweak them to my liking. While I might still do that, I know I don’t have that much time at the moment. While looking around, I stumbled on the following theme: PrimePress. I liked it a lot.

So, I just made it live on the site. I made two changes:

  1. I removed the rotating headers (I actually liked them a lot, but it’s a waste of space on this blog from my perspective)
  2. I substituted my name for the Copyright holder rather than the title of the blog

For now, that’s it, though I might tweak it a bit in the coming days (probably not). I’ll take a look again in a few weeks when WordPress 2.7 is released, and see if there are any themes around that take full advantage of that, but still look this clean. If so, I might switch again.

For now, welcome PrimePress! :-)

    I like it — I'm a sucker for simple with a white background though.

    I've also looked at Carrington and shied away. I'd like to see other clear the roughage on those before I jump in. I noted that they recently had to do a release of Carrington for a security patch. I don't need that kind of monkey business in my themes.

    Looking good nice and clean, you might want to delete or change the tagline under the blog title.

    I know the tagline is meaningless, but I originally left it in to promote WordPress. Of course, I have the link in the footer too, so perhaps your advice is good… I'll have to think about it, unless your comment spurs many others pushing me in that direction. :-)

    Thanks for stopping by!
