After working through a lot of issues with my website over the December holidays, I started to look for a more modern and, frankly, better looking theme. After trying a dozen or so, I finally settled on Atahualpa.
This theme had almost all the features I was looking for:
- Variable number of columns, so I could use two for full pages and three for those with blog entries.
- Customizable logo and header images.
- Built-in CSS support for printing.
- A professional looking design.
It doesn’t have automatic page navigation, but I can live with that for now. The theme has many ways to tweak it and allows you to “tiger stripe” tables (that is, alternate the color of rows). I turned this off, but it clearly represents a tremendous amount of work and refinement.
Incidentally, I generated the photos used in the header from images in my collection of screen wallpapers and backgrounds.
