    PaddyGreen - New Theme Link to this post

    Yesterday I felt bit bored after being stuck on coding for a long time. So I spent yesterday designing a new Silverstripe theme

    Focus of this theme was to provide more breathing room for blogging and mashable content (you will require the mashups module to use mashups controls).

    This theme was done in little less than 24 hours so there may be still lot to refactor, so I recommend you to try it out at your own risk ;)

    You could see a live demo of the theme at http://www.web2media.net/sstheme/

    Also if you want to download the alpha version of the theme : http://www.web2media.net/sstheme/paddy-green.zip

    P.S. - @Will >> Could you help me to further improve this and release this ?

    - Did you get my email about the theme I sent you a couple weeks back with some feedback?? another couple of things you can do if you want is just make sure it works with the new modules like romains gallery, it shouldnt have any problems but just to check that out. Forum and ecommerce are pretty big modules to theme but if you have time to have support for those it might be something to think about

    BeefStake - goodluck trying to find a free host to support ss. My suggestion is check out our recommended hosts - http://doc.silverstripe.com/doku.php?id=suggested-web-hosts $7 a month for hosting is fairly decent! I look forward to seeing your themes!

    Lakshan there is lots of "left-overs" in your theme....
    I cleaned it up and made my own version though,
    It is not quite content filled yet but can be acessed via

    RE: Willr
    Cheers I've just got hosting with DreamHosting, excellent host IMO would recommend them to anyone.

    BeefStake -> Actually PaddyGreen is not a fully optimized theme yet (that's why it isn't released yet). So there may be left overs and bit of patching to done on it. I'll work on those when I find some free time.

    Anyway I'm happy that you were able to customize PaddyGreen to suit your needs. Keep the good work comin!
