    Plain theme Link to this post

    hey!
    I have just developed a new theme, which is called "plain". It is a business green-on-white theme that you should definitely have a look at!

    to download, click: (download)

    Feedback appreciated

    Wojtek! Feedback

    - A couple typography points, use "Trebuchet MS",Arial,Verdana instead of Arial
    first (its in the * rule I think. I quite like it with Trebuchet and also for the
    paragraphs. And for typography line 6 - p, ul, td.. Instead of 12 try 11px. I know
    picky but it just seems nicer to me and thats what the original theme had and it was nice

    - Currently online area in the forum page is pretty spaced out. I mean majorly too
    much room and padding. Tighten that up

    - the menu 2 doesnt quite match the template. Should be blue and without the
    underline. You also need the .current link styling for it

    - comments are again too spaced out. Have a play with the layout of that

    - you need a typography.css file in the plain/css/ folder. Otherwise it actually breaks
    Not only do you want it to make the theme look pretty over both the cms and front
    end if you do not have on you get what happens on plain on the demo site. Including
    the cms's default one with the overflow hidden stuff!!!

    Even if its blank its better then none, but would be good to add the p, a, ul, ol,
    etc into it.

    I'm not sure if it's because of the default forum style override, there seems to be some layout problems with the forum module. eg.) http://demo.silverstripe.com/general-discussion/flat/1?theme=plain&flush=1

    Will:
    as for the typography, I have mentioned it that I forgot to create a typography file and I couldn't fix it before you accept the theme to silverstripe.com/themes

    @jeff - it's about the demo bug

    I'll fix it in a few minuts/hours and post it
