New WordPress Themes You’ll Love (3)

April 22nd, 2008 · No Comments

Below are some especially beautifully designed and conceptualized WordPress themes I think you’ll love.

Under Water

Under Water: Just look at it. This is a well conceptualized, simple and fun WordPress theme. Great use of a background png and one of few times I see a static background with scrolling content not seem amateurish and visually distracting. I also love how the post meta is like a little sidebar for each post.

How to Customize Your WordPress Login Screen and Password Protect Your WordPress Blog

March 1st, 2008 · 4 Comments

small wp new loginOne of many personal / business projects I have been working on is creating a business network for small business owners and self-employed individuals such as myself that works similar to BNI. I want this network to have an online presence, a members only secured area that requires password entry, and a home web page for anyone to view and learn about the network before requesting membership and access to the members only area. Initially I started with a Ning network account but wanted more control over what got displayed and how without too much hacking and also without hacking to pay for upgrades when otherwise Ning is free. Plus Ning has annoying adsense ads on the right (which I got rid of. ask me how). Well, I thought, WordPress is very extensible, I’m sure I can create my business network with WordPress by password protecting the WordPress blog installation and customizing the WordPress login screen.

Adding a Little Something Extra on Your Web Design from Head to Footer

December 24th, 2007 · No Comments

A couple of weeks ago I talked about how to Wow Them With a Hot Header. I found this article recently displaying really beautiful looking web page footers. Usually a footer just contains some copyright info, your blog or websites name, and maybe a duplicate of your main navigation and/or links to your terms of service or something to that effect. But, doesn’t mean that all this boring info can’t look good as well. A footer can keep your site visitors on your site longer if you add a cool design and some extra info like a tag cloud, or a little “about me” or “about us” paragraph or even just repeating the main navigation links.
