    I just found out that the EVOK Interactive site is down. You can find the IMO great EVOK theme here: http://weblogtoolscollection.com/archives/2005/12/12/wp-theme-the-cabinet/
    Would be great if you could add it to the available themes.

    I think I’ve suggested this one before… hope you take a look at it if you guys haven’t yet…

    It’s called freshy. It’s a very flexible template – from a small palette of colors for a quick theme change to a big big selection of great headers.

    And it looks techie, too :D

    Hope you take a look at this one. It’s at:

    http://www.jide.fr/english/downloads/template-freshy-wordpress/

    This site itself is on the freshy theme (as of now)…

    Thanks!

    As a coder who posts random code bits, a theme that truly understands code snippets. Mark’s Freshy Theme seems to do that in old linebar-themed style. Past that, I really like that theme (Freshy) except that it’s fixed width. If you could customize the %-width or span it 100%, that’d be a slick theme. :)

    Also a Technorati widget or something… since we can’t post the code directly into the site.

    I’d like to see some more themes that use as much of the screen space as possible. All in CSS, not static, plenty of widgets, 3 column, tabbed “pages”, cross browser compatable, less fancy more funtional AND…..(drumroll) a Footer!!!

    In the footer we could place widgets like counters and copywrights and powered by wordpress…stuff like that.

    And maybe better widgets (like the del.ico.us widget isn’t so good because you have to name the tags that you want to show, what if you want to show all of them??). We just plain flat out need a Creative Commons widget.

    I hope I’m not asking too much. I hate to be a bother. But I think these additions would be very useful to everyone.
