Theme Friday

Two themes for all of you gorgeous WordPress.com users to play with this weekend: Fleur and Sweet Blossoms. Fleur is very clean, with straight lines and green tones that are pretty professional looking. Sweet Blossoms is the other side of the spectrum, very pink with great flower and butterfly graphics in the header and a very narrow layout with small text.

Pink is seriously growing on me, I think we’ll have more pink themes in the next few weeks. :)

Update: Whoops, I actually forgot about one I added in a few days ago. WP-Andreas09 is a very stylish three-column theme with lots of color options for the header. Check it out.

    Couldn’t you have announced WP-Andreas09 too, since it was added a few days ago? It is, after all, my absolute favorite of all themes… But still, thanks for the new ones!

    Could it be that pink is the new black?

    Did you know that the plural of Fleur-de-lis is, in fact, Fleurs de lis? On a similar note the plural of Cul-de-sac is Culs-de-sac.

    It just keeps getting better and better. Thank you for the new themes. One I want to suggest is Quentin 1.0. A demo site for that design is at the following link: http://www.pikemurdy.com/quentin/. It’s red toned, clean looking and it has a calendar which very few of the current themes offer. Thanks again.

    Actually I like better WP-Andreas09, it’s very portal-alike. That would be great if you, guys, could provide layouts with customizable email forms too. Thanxxx

    Please don’t put more Pink! The banana is enough! :)
    I hope to see themes with smaller fonts (like Arial 8pt) and well-organized sidebars. Most of the themes have very badly-organized sidebars! I mean the links are either all put in one list, or the pages are scrambled!

    More hard work please!

    Thanks a lot

    I looked at quentin, i really like it, but i will go for a theme that is exactly like contempt except with a search bar + calender.

    I like the WP-Andreas09, and when I first set it as my theme everything was fine, but then I realized that my “blogroll” was missing. Just a comment, thought it might be a bug in the design maybe. So I have now switched back to the one I was using before.

    Might be just my PC, but Sweet Blossoms and Banana Smoothie look all askewed on Firefox (I’m using version 1.0.7), especially when blockquotes (and images perhaps?) are involved, but similar to the screenshots in IE.

    Anyway, I made a request for a Simplicity theme 2 weeks ago

    http://wordpress.com/forums/topic.php?id=389&replies=5

    Would it be possible to include it for the next Theme Friday? And Quentin, as recced by judyky, looks great too.

    I really like the theme Regulus 2 a lot, being one of the few that allows for “recent posts” and nice header backgrounds…

    However, I can’t seem to change font size of my posts and the rest of the blog for this entire theme. Even with html codes…
    Result my students got to squint their eyes when reading and posting in this blog!!!!

    Is this inherent of the theme template or just a problem for chinese input???
    Please do something abt it???

    Thanks!!!

    hmmn I am not into pink, and I like experimenting with new looks. So could we have some more professional looking templates.. like Heming way, Rubrin or Andreas-09?

    And as lafemme suggests (above), calendars and recent posts would be an added treat.

    Thanks for the new themes. I’ll continue hoping for even more three column layouts. And ditto the request for a preview function. I’d like to see how the theme looks on my blog before committing to a new choice…
