Theme Wednesday: Redoable Lite

Here’s a smart new theme, a “lite” version of Dean J Robinson’s Redoable:

It features a stylish color scheme, customizable header images, and a sidebar column for widgets. Pages are linked in a menu bar just below the header. To keep things simple we’ve left out some of Redoable’s more advanced options, but kept its essential ingredients intact.

You’ll find it listed on your dashboard’s Presentation menu.

    Hi,

    I love the theme! Thanx alot!! ;-)

    I would really love to use the theme but there seems to be a problem with regards to the author’s name under the posts header. When i click the name link (in my case, its pseudonymity, it correctly brings one to my home page BUT if i leave the cursor on the link, the URL on the status bar of the browser shows not only my blog’s URL (which is normal) but also my username.

    In other words, instead of just http://pseudonymity.wordpress.com/, it shows http://pseudonymity.wordpress.com/author/(my username).

    First new theme in months that I’ve liked enough to use. :-)

    Problem: If you use a custom image header and turn off the title text, there is no obvious way to get back to the main blog. I’ve fixed this temporarily by putting a link in my sidebar via HTML in a text widget, but this theme should really have a “home” link in the horizontal page list, like K2.

    I really like these dark looking themes. They are perfect for stranger styles of writing. I almost feel like drinking a small cup of tea in some european dadaic bar, or smth like that. :)

    Tried it, hated it. Sorry.
    The colors, yes. They work.
    But all together, as a whole, it just seemed too umm . . jumbled together. Too cluttered. Not too easy on the eyes.

    Wonderful, this is a beautiful looking theme. One thing I’d like to mention is that, unfortunately, the theme does not contain any custom Page Templates (for Archives, Links Page etc).

    If anyone would like to get the full list of which WordPress.com themes have what Page Templates, I have listed them all here.

    Anyway, congratulations for this sweet addition! I’m using it!

    I loved the theme, but there is one bug that should be fixed. When i add a custom header, the header is changed, but a small red line remains. Is there any chance that could be fixed? take a look at my exemple blog: victorpencak.wordpress.com

    thank you

    One of my acquaintances was using this theme on her blog that was on her own server. I really enjoyed playing around on it, so I think this is a great addition to the mix that you guys have going for layouts! Great choice! ^^ I’ll have to use it myself eventually.

    Victor: That’s the header border. I don’t believe there’s a straightforward way to adjust its colour to match an image. The solution is to use an image that matches the colour scheme.

    Nice!!!! I think that it would be ideal to have a three-column theme where the user can ‘set-and-forget’ the width of the main column, to enable wider photos and cleaner print lines, while still having quick access to all side-column features without the full-page scroll. However – this WP theme may be the closest yet to what i’ve been wanting. Thanx muchly! ;)

    What’s with all these DARK themes you keep adding??

    We’re not all Anne Rice bloggers.

    I appreciate you guys….really….. but your THEMES need some new creative juice!

    Try keeping things SIMPLE and CLEAN (enabling US to add subtle changes IF we choose).

    I hope my readers focus on my words…not all this “busy stuff” distracting their eyes.

    Less is sometimes best.

    Color is good. White, minimalist, majority rule is hard on my eyes and my psyche. Black on white contrast levels vibrate.

    White is not cleaner than black, grey, or red. And it is dull.

    Whoa. White sans-serif type –on black ground? When I see those I don’t care how much I want to read or what is written: I click off, fast as possible. That combo works for a poster, sorta, if message of only a few words. Way wouldn’t use such eye-strain for a blog.

    How about a theme: beige or pearl-grey ground –or option to choose either?
    Or: entire page in cream color? All serif font, deep black.
    We don’t have those…they would be Very nice, unique…and since wishing is free: I’d like it to have column(s) on the right side(!). (When will it be ready? lol) It’s probably tons of work to load a new theme, so thanks anyway.
