    Connections Reloaded 2.0 Roadmap

    Have been meaning to post a roadmap for Connections Reloaded 2.0 for a while so here it is: For those unaware, Connections Reloaded is my theme for WordPress 1.5.x onwards. Connections Reloaded has come a long way from when I decided to shift from Spirit to Connections and I found Connections fabulous looking but wanting with respect to functionality. Then came a slow but steady learning of how to design WordPress themes. I released Connections Reloaded on 16 June 2005 and it has crossed 1000 downloads (tracked from 4th July 2005). It currently stands on v1.2.1.

    From Spirit to Connections

    Was running the Spirit Theme for WordPress ever since I upgraded my blog to WordPress 1.5. The theme is a very good three column theme and does have a nice look to it. However, the markup it uses is a very complex mix of divs and thus maintaining and modifying it was an even greater pain. Was always on the lookout for a three column theme and so never bothered to check out two column themes, until I stumbled upon Connections.
