When I started to use WordPress, I intended to start with a basic theme or layout and modify it myself, but I’m afraid I don’t have the time to learn about CSS and so on, at least not at the moment. And with WordPress Themes and sites like WordPress ThemeViewer, Alex King: WordPress Theme Browser and WP Themes.info it’s easy to decide not to do the designing work yourself – but hard to pick a theme because there are so many great ones. For now, I chose one called Dark Maple by Moshu. After a long wonderful and perfect summer I’m getting to terms with the fact that autumn started two days ago.
Starting a theme from scratch might indeed be very painful. I also looked around and picked a theme (“desert theme” – guess why?), which is now slowly evolving into my theme.
I really like your choice – this is a beautiful theme!
Yep, the Desert theme was probably my favourite, but since you were already using it I had to pick a different one. But that’s okay, there are lots of good ones. Besides, I think you are much more entitled to use it than I since you are the one suffering in 100 degree heat! ;-)
