Caffeine Theme Available for Download

Caffeine ThemeWell, it’s been a lot of work, but I have now released my WordPress theme Caffeine. Read all about it on the Caffeine Theme Homepage.

If you like the looks of it, go ahead and grab it. If you’re looking for a theme to modify you may find it interesting. I did my best to make the code readable and I encourage folks to make it their own.

If you decide to use Caffeine I’d love to hear from you via email or comment. Make sure to leave a URL. If you find any problems please leave them as comments as well and I’ll do my best to fix it for the next version.

Enjoy, and happy blogging!

Life After Coffee – Now With Caffeine

Life After Coffee – 26% Wider and Now With Caffeine

After many hours playing with my site theme I have finally made the leap. Unless something has gone horribly wrong (or you’re reading this in an RSS reader) you’re now looking at Caffeine, my new WordPress theme.

I’m no web developer, so this is a fairly big departure for me. If you have any suggestions, or if you find any browser issues or other bugs, please feel free to leave a comment on this post or contact me through the contact link above.

This theme is based on the default WordPress theme, but is also inspired by the popular Connections theme. Once I’ve had a bit more time to touch up the code I’ll probably be making this theme available for download.

I’m interested in distributing the theme not because I think everyone wants their site to look like mine, but rather because I’ve spent a ton of time making the theme easy to modify. Hours were spent indenting code, adding comments, organizing the css and replacing the archaic endif and enwhile markers in the code.

The result is what you see here. The whole theme only uses four images so it should be easy to change up the entire look of it fairly easily. Everything that’s opened in the header.php is closed in the footer.php and all the sidebar stuff is in the sidebar.php. I’ve also been able to add a (very usefull) admin panel in the sidebar.

As I said above, I’m no web developer. As such I have to give great thanks to Matt Batchelder and Zach Tirrell (who are web developers) for helping me with my theme redo.

Please leave any suggestions or problems and check back often if you’re interested in the Caffeine theme.
