Theme Monday: Digg 3 Column

Here’s a shiny new theme to brighten up your Monday: a three-column, Digg-inspired layout by Small Potato.

It features two (count ‘em!) sidebars with widgets, a customizable header image with an overlaid border, and nifty green tabs at the top for your Pages.

You’ll find it listed on the Presentation tab of your dashboard, under D for “Digg”.

P.S. It’s Monday here in sunny Melbourne, for those of you on the slow side of the international date line.

    Nice :) This is one I’ve seen elsewhere and it is a very nice theme. Colors are not quite to my liking but I may have to give it a shot. Been waiting for a 3-column theme with a customizable header.

    A 3-column Regulus would be the best option for me, though.

    Looks good, but I’d sure like some more dark themes… something like the Sapphire theme but with black or dark gray instead. Or something like MistyLook or onnections or Tarski that has darker colors.

    I previewed it too, but wondered why the calendar shows up at the bottom of the left hand column and at the top of the right hand column? Why does it show up twice?

    Nice theme though. Now if we just had some themes with purple….:)

    I am back to tell you guys that I tried the theme, liked it and am using it. I prefer it over my old 2-3 sidebar theme Neo-Sapien for the simple reason that it gives me all that I want (more sidebars plus custom header) and more. In fact there were some hitches with Neo, like the theme not showing up properly on the old version of Internet Explorer. Also the html that I used in widgets would not always work. I am not saying this theme is perfect as I don’t like the green, but at least one can change the other colours. Also, the title of my blog is visible, unlike in Neo. Another disadvantage of Neo was that the first sidebar on the left was useless as the minute you put it any of your own widgets, the title of the blog (which used to appear in tiny letters anyway) would disappear altogether!
    This theme is clean and easy on the eye and I just love the way the text in the widgets is spaced out. I was waiting for a theme like this. The custom header could be bigger, but well, one can’t get everything unless one is designing the theme oneself and I don’t think I can.
    A big thank you. :D

    We made a minor change to the theme that should help with IE when the sidebar content is too wide.

    As to the width in sidebars for images what with all the margins, padding and doodads I reckon the max is going to about 150px on each side. HTH. Fine tuning and cross platform testing will be necessary. On a technical note like many Kubrick deriviatives all the font sizes are declared in px which is one of my pet hates because it seriously impacts both useability and accessibility :). But a nice looking 3 col. And A BBH. What more could we want. :)

    But the only disadvantage i could see with this theme is that it doesn’t show the tag line of ur blog in the header. Well, i could change the header which compensates partly for the problem, but then i would love it to show up under the title even when im using the default header
