New Theme: Unsleepable

Another day, another theme, right? ;)

Today I bring to you Unsleepable. It’s a very simple 2-column theme that’s pretty popular in the .org realm. So if gray, white and pretty hover colors strike your fancy – give this theme a try!

Enjoy!

Update: I’ve made it a bit more like the original by adding back the bottom block and widgetizing it (try not to add more than 3 widgets at the bottom), and a few other tweaks now. Almost feels like I should re-present it. Thanks for your patience!

    Bryan,

    There seems to be a problem with the unsleepable theme and the dashboard bar which shows up when a user is logged in. See post and screenshots here:

    Yep, yep, I’m using it.
    It’s cool – bit girlie… (I refer to the color of the links…
    And the date … the month appears in lower case..?
    Hmmm.

    However, I like these two points – they allow me to know that despite your realms of genuis and generosity, you remain human ;)

    Bryan, is there a way to let the page links at the top expand a bit more? I have a page titled “What the heck is a web feed”, but in this theme the page link only shows up as “what the”. Look at my blog to see what I mean.

  54. jasonintx

    just to follow up on my previous question about long page titles in the top link, in Firefox my page title “what the heck is a web feed” is only displayed as “what the”. However, in IE6 the complete page title is displayed in the link but severely messes up the height of the header. I’m still using the Unsleepable theme so you can check it out there.

    I really really love this theme, but I have a problem with it: on every page but the first one, the entries go outside of the ‘white area’, and into the grey shaded area. I think this looks really untidy, and ruins it to be honest :( Is this a glitch in the theme? Or is it meant to be like this?

    Any chance it will be fixed?

    Many thanks,

    Bryan –

    The theme looks great. But there is one issue that keeps me away from using this theme. The “recent entries” section seems to flow beyond its boudaries and that makes it to look ugly. I’ve tried that in Firefox 1.5. If you could fix that then I’ll be on my way to use that theme for sure.

    Thanks.
