As some of you may know, I’ve been working on changing the theme here at RIMarkable. I am by no means a WordPress theme developer and thus it has been very slow going as I play with different templates when I get a little spare time here and there.

I “think” that I have settled on the Neoclassical theme by Chris Pearson. If you want to check out what things may look like around here in the coming weeks, find out how after the jump.

The new theme isn’t ready to go prime time quite yet, however, I was hoping to get a little bit of feedback on how things look. I’ve heard that one of the first rules of web design is to never put up an unfinished web site, however, I don’t really like rules, and more importantly, don’t want to pour a ton more of time into this if most of you think it sucks.

If you want to see what the new theme looks like on the live site, there are couple of things that you need to do.

  1. Bookmark this post — I am going to stick links to the new theme and the theme your looking at now in this post. You will be able to change back and forth between the new and old themes and this page has the links to do so
  2. Promise to leave a comment and tell us what you think.

Like a said, there are just a couple of things that you need to do.

Remember, this theme isn’t finished yet. Some links are dead and some features aren’t turned on yet. I know that I need to clean up the massive list of categories and hopefully will do that this weekend.

All that being said, here is the
