Playing with the WordPress Theme Generator

As I said yesterday, I was off to play with the WordPress theme generator. It took me a few minutes to figure out what the various labels on the forms controlling the selections meant. I couldn’t quite squeeze the whole page plus the theme preview on the right into my available screen real estate, so I was doing a lot of scrolling around to see the effects of my choices. It took me about 15 minutes to create a red, white, and blue theme. I confess I didn’t carry through with the next step. I did not download and install the theme. So I cannot report on how that goes. Here’s a picture of my 15 minutes of effort

If you have the ability to add some background graphics and other customizations to the code and material you get from the theme generator, you could no doubt make a nice looking blog.

On the other hand, if you have the ability to do that, you may not need the help you get from a wizard that will generate a theme for you. What do you think?

  1. I think the WordPress Theme Generator is a brilliant!I’m would imagine that the majority of WordPress bloggers are not [yet] comfortable with digging into the php or css of their blog in order to customize the theme, so I think it’s great that WordPress offers them a way to personalize the look of their site. I know a couple of people this would be perfect for – I’m off to go play with it!
