    Looks really good, Justin. The colors really help the readability of your content—always a plus. And the retro look in the header and footer is pretty cool too. Gives everything a fun, let’s-try-some-cool-stuff-with-WordPress vibe.

    Thanks for the nod to ThemeShaper. I appreciate it. :)

    Very nice. I like the light look, non-crowded look. Did you consciously make the decision to use a wide fixed layout? I see more and more sites these days moving beyond the old baseline of 800×600 – not that I mind.

    Just a tip, you have an error with the label tag for the name field – you missed the “=” in the “for” attribute.

    So many sites with new looks these days, I really must try to get my redesign out the door :D

    Yah that’s a choice I’ve been pondering myself. I know 800×600 is the common baseline currently, but being able to go beyond that frees up your design and layout options. Posting code is one reason, photos is another.

    It looks very nice! I really like the colors, they make the blog look very clean, and the readability is very good. The search box, and the slightly separation between the content and the sidebar look great too.
    Congratulations!

    Looks great! Very easy on the eyes.

    Justin, you mentioned that less than 3% of your visitors use 800×600–how are you capturing that data?

    Looks really good – I like the lighter colours. I changed your Structure theme to light colours a little similar to what you’ve got here, though mine has less variance between colours.

    Great job, Justin.
    It’s a major improvement over the most recent look. This one has got more “class” and a much better layout.

    :)

    Did you do the archives page by hand, or is that a plugin? I want a simple list like that for my site.

    I agree that your audience would figure into your decision on layout in a large way. Even then, I like that we are able to start taking advantage of more screen space. Usability and backwards compatibility are all well and good, but it is important to weigh that against making progress.

    IE really does suck. If everyone would switch to FF the world would be a better place. LOL

    Justin Tadlock,

    It’s time for your site. And JustinTadlock.com is more attractive now, I really do love the old-book’s paper like color, yes it’s some time in the past.

    Justin,
    I really like the colors you’ve chosen and it definitely has a clean look.

    I noticed them over on your forums and really liked them, too.
    Nice to put a face to the comments.

    Great job!

    Mm… I hate themes like this one, Justin. Pink-purple design, those “flowers” in corners of menus… i cant see them on my LCD monitor, those are too bright. You should better work with Options Theme, I think.

    I didn’t say “use Options theme!” :/
    Mm… i only think You should make next update for Options Theme becouse some things still didnt work (only on my blog?). There are still problems with widgets. There should be more things in this theme I think.

    Yep. I’ve been in Asia for just over six years. We moved to Taiwan in 2006 after living in China for three years. I love the ease of grid-skipping. It’s impossible to do this kind of traveling back home. Be sure to let us know if you’re heading this way. We have regular blogger hoe-downs and they’re loads of fun.

    Not about the logo, your logo is really “you”. But i means the page link box, i think its better placed near header line and use same color.
