New Core Theme

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.

Samples:

itheme_blue
Open in new window


itheme_corp
Open in new window


itheme_green
Open in new window


itheme_sunrise
Open in new window


itheme_violet
Open in new window


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?

Not a very critical answer I'm afraid -but I do like the results you have so far!

Very nice work. Suggestion: I like those colors but some people likes soft colors as Nekro; you could add one or two soft colors perhaps.

I wouĺd prefer style switcher.
Keep this great work!

So long as it looks absolutely nothing like the default xoops theme or a derivative thereof (especially the fonts!), I'll be very happy :)

Hey Will I know its a cookie problem that stops the show but I thought that problem was solved. Their was a theme released over on the mothership a while ago that had some code in it. Did this code not solve the cookie problem? I wish I could remember the name of the theme.

With all the devs around here im sure you will be able to get it sorted.

Congrads on a very nice start they look good on this end.

Another idea! The xaraya default themes come with the font code. Maybe this can be ported over to here...
