I have been developing WordPress themes and helping churches harness the potential of this great tool for over five years now. I felt it was time for a fresh approach for the themes site and to create a site more focussed on creativity and user support. And so the Theme Loom.
The Loom will continue to offer access to all the previous LivingOS WordPress themes, but will increasingly look to provide themes that match the latest standards in web design and offer support for the features of the latest versions of WordPress. The Mu theme, released last year is the first in what hopes to be a line of creative, easy to use and highly functional designs that will emerge from the Loom.
The new site uses my KAPPA theme, which is a new design I hope to get round to releasing on the Loom in the next few weeks. It includes some jQuery goodies as well as some CSS3 features for those browsers that support them:
- subtle CSS3 rounded corners here and there (unless you are using lame old Internet Explorer)
- more interesting fonts via the new font-face thingy
- drop menus and lavalamp-like navigation
And that is just what you see! Behind the theme are also plenty of new features. All but the rounded corners work in IE6+.
