New Theme at Leland.info

As I’m sure some of you have noticed, there is a brand new theme up at Leland.info. I used the Simply Minimal template designed by insicdesigns and ported it to WordPress.

Less emphasis is being placed on the blog with more being placed on social networks such as Twitter, as evidenced by the homepage template. I also plan on releasing a portfolio here with some of my work. For the sidebars, I used a little widget goodness with some techiniques discussed in my article at Smashing Magazine: 5 Useful And Creative Ways To Use WordPress Widgets.

Finally, is this a WordPress theme you might be interested in? I’m not sure of the licensing of the template so I’d have to check with insicdesigns to see if it would be okay to release over at Theme Lab. The theme still needs some work, but I’m just trying to gauge interest here.

      This is a comment reply.

      With another paragraph. Just testing here.

        And another nested comment.

        Hope it doesn’t look too bad.

    I’ve also been working on porting this design to WP, but you beat me to the punch. Great minds think alike, as they say.

    I’ve been playing with WPFramework and thought that using it as a starting point for this design would be a good way to find my way around the framework. I’d almost finished the blog page, which is viewable at my demo site.

    I’d definitely be interested in getting your completed theme. It looks great on your site.

    @Anto: Thanks, yeah I hope to start blogging a bit more here.

    @PJ: That’s pretty good. I never thought of using a framework with it but looks like it turned out well for you.

    I still have a bit of work to do to make it ready for a public release but hopefully that will be soon.
