WordPress theme: aplus Lady

If you read this in browser, you are most likely looking at the new theme. If not, use the delicacies at the bottom of the home page to change to aplus Lady theme.

This theme is technically identical to aplus theme: it has integrated time since and time of day plugins, support for gravatars, recent comments and blogroll display.

What’s new is that I changed the way design assets are loaded. Instead of pulling images from CSS, I used good old img tag and placed in inside of heading tags, where needed. Feels…strange. :)

Another thing is that Yasmeen’s photo is also simple img which makes it very easy to block. If that image is office-unfriendly for you, but you like the colours and would like to use the theme, then simply add the image to ad-block (whichever you use).

This also makes it very easy to change the image with something truly yours (when I actually offer it as download). The image can be 200px wide and unlimited in height, so you will have fun playing around.

This theme was a really long way in making. I started with something quite different and eventually changed everything but the main image.

The space at the top is perfect for ad placement, but I have not bothered to set any placeholders for it, so that would be your part to do.

Way forward

I do not offer this theme for the download yet, nor I have any idea when I would. To be easily customizable, I’m thinking of implementing sIFR, but that will have to wait some time.

Knowing me, that would either be 1-2 days or several months. Hey - even in the state like this, it waited a good year or something…
