New Theme: Neo-Sapien

For those of you wanting darker themes, we’ve got a neat one called Neo-Sapien from WP Designer.

It has a very prominent custom header and not one, or two, but three sidebars you can put widgets in. You can find the theme under your “presentation” tab in the dashboard.

    It’s good. It should appeal to the narcissists. Well done.

    For some reason I don’t really find this theme very attractive. The colour scheme looks a bit weird, with red over black but with the header of the red. In my opinion it looks really “messy” and inconsistent. I guess I’ll stick with Freshy :D.

    Still, thanks a lot for constantly updating the themes, I’m definitely looking forward to even more :)

    WordPress is great about continually introducing things we can use. I’m not easily impressed – but I am with WordPress.

    I love visual imagery and appreciate good photography so I’ve been watching for a theme that allows images/pictures to be used in the header without the severe cropping many require. This one has a prominent picture at the top. I like that about it.

    I like the vibrance of bright red and black. I just hope it doesn’t detract from or clash with the subtle colors in a lot of the pictures I like. I guess we’ll find out.

    Sidebar column widths really scrunch some of the entry titles, don’t they?

    The search bar almost disappears (look again, it’s still there) :-)

    If you mouse-over the dates in red on the calendar you can see the post titles for that day. That could come in handy.

    In most of the themes I’ve used thus-far, a click anywhere in the header picture takes you to the top of everything. In this theme only the “Home” tab at the top does that.

    I’m looking forward to checking this out, It’s well-done!

    Looking at the picture Matt put above, I really like it. When I tried it out… not so much.
    In the pic above the body column is centered and the left sidebar looks to be a decent width. Plus there are only 2 sidebars. When I tried it out…I wanted to fill only 2 sidebars, it added content in the 3rd sidebar by default. and the left side bar is unreadable because it is so narrow. Plus the whole presentation isn’t centered which drives me crazy. Does anyone who got it to look like the pic above have any advice?

    That is so cool, but one of my friends just snagged it.

    I would like to request a theme that has readable font on the posts *and* the comments, that also has some dark to it, but a light colored post field. I am currently using Sapphire 1.0, like it a lot because it goes with my custom header, but I am getting complaints that the comments are almost unreadable due to the tiny font size.

    I like the variety of themes. One thing though – would it be hard to make a few of them handle wider pictures without trimming off one side of the picture? I am finding it hard to find a theme that can handle nice, large, pictures on pages.

    (I haven’t really worked with CSS, so I am not about to start editing it myself).
