New theme :)

I was thinking of changing the theme for quite sometime but was delaying it for 2 main reasons…

– Was not finding any good theme
– Was kind of lazy to modify the theme files to get more out of the theme

Today I came across this theme called Regulus, which is kind of combination of K2 and Rin.

I was looking for some liquid theme but could not find any good one so decided to go for fixed only and this was the best ๐Ÿ˜‰

But editing the PHP files was more painful part, the theme did not have different file for post i.e. single.php so I had to give some conditions for the ads (everything is stored in index.php file)

Modifying sidebar was again pain…It was using same side bar content for all the pages but I wanted different stuff on home page and different on inside pages, so that also included some heavy modifications…

Now another bad part was, the theme had no archive page, I wanted to add super archive but that also didn’t work well with it…so I have kept archive page as pending…will work on it tonight… Archive page fixed now ๐Ÿ™‚

It took me around 2 hours to modify the stuff and get the things rolling properly…

So now everything is setup properly, just archive page needs to be fixed…
Btw how is the theme? Any comments?

P.S. I have disabled the comments on other theme post, coz I want ppl to comment there ๐Ÿ˜›

  1. It looks quite a lot like K2 but I can’t find any resemblence to Rin!! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    yeah I wasn’t able to get it going as well when I was making the theme for my blog!! That kind of looks cool with AJAX, but well, I didn’t give it more time. Hope you have better luck with it!! ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Hi! Could you please explain how did you create the “About”, “Archives”, “Contact” and “Links” tab? I want to add them to my blog, but i don’t know ho to do it! Thanks!

  3. Jester, there’s an option to create static pages in WordPress. Pages are created using that option & they automatically appear as tabs if you are using this theme!! ๐Ÿ™‚
