Alright, I have begun work on the theme I propose be added to the core. I am at the drawing stage still. I just wanted to show you what I have come up with.
I went with a classic look.
There are several different colors available at this point, and I am not sure If I want to release it with a style switcher (all in one) or as several different themes.
The nav is shown in the hover state, when not being hovered it would simply be text on the bg.
Applying a style switcher to the theme would be easy enough, and if I did I would probably also implement font_tools to resize the font dynamically. The only problem with font_tools is that I have never successfully gotten the cookie to write, so that the font did not reset with each pageload.
If i did go with the styleswitcher, I would probably work it into the footer. I have plans to incorporate a impress network bar if logged in as admin.
Thoughts? Ideas? Critiques?
