I just finished up a theme I have been working on a for a little while. It’s a 2-column theme called Clean Slate and yes you’ve guessed it – it’s a simple, straighforward design. You can see it in action on my test blog or you can use the Theme Switcher on here to switch to the theme. It has 1 main column where the posts get written and a sidebar to the right for search, last posts, archives, advertising and so on.
First, this theme requires WordPress 1.5+ Once you have downloaded the theme, unzip it and:
- Upload the unzipped theme to your
- Enter your Admin panel -> Presentation and select the theme.
