Am totally thrilled and happy to say that my theme Connections Reloaded has crossed 1000 downloads since 4th July 2005 (from when I actually started tracking downloads). This is excluding those during the period from June 16 to July 3 as well as those from other sites like WordPress Themes Viewer. Thanks to all those who contributed in making this theme a success in such a short duration. And thanks to all of you have downloaded and powered your WordPress blogs with my theme. Stay tuned as I have a few plans in the new version of Connections Reloaded. Keep your suggestions and comments coming and donations (for those who…
Have created a demo blog powered by the latest release of v1.6 of WordPress. I have set it to autoupdate every day from the svn repository of WordPress. The main purpose of the blog is to test out my themes, plugins and hacks. Besides these, I will also be putting other plugins, hacks and themes to the test. Consider it to be a mini sandbox. I have user registrations open on that blog. If you are an author and would like to have your themes or plugins tested, please contact me. View the Demo Blog now >>

Good news for those who use Falbum for displaying your Flickr Photos on your WordPress Blog and who use Connections Reloaded to power it. Download falbum-wp.zip and upload falbum-wp.php included in it to the folder you have Connections Reloaded installed, usually /wp-content/olduploads/themes/connections-reloaded/ I don’t run FAlbum myself for now. But I have plans for a demo blog which I shall install soon. Will have a live demo then. The file uses code based on this post in Falbum forums. Download: falbum-wp.zip And for those who would like do, please do contribute a small amount for my development. The amount is blank, so you can fill in whatever amount you choose.
Just released v1.2 of my theme Connections Reloaded. 1.2 comes as a major update with a lot of additions as follows: I have added Links and Pages to the sidebar. Links displays only on the homepage while Pages displays all throughout. Currently only top level pages are displayed. You will need to edit the sidebar.php to display daughter level. Version info is not added to the footer. Easy for keeping track. Display of nested categories in the sidebar has been fixed Have added buttons under subscription for Feedster, Spurl, Furl, Newsburst, Rojo and Pluck. If anyone knows the button for adding to Google Reader, please let me know. All images…
I’m considering Back in Black 2 in Blue as a new prospective theme for this blog. Gave it a preview install and it looks good. However, I am in for a lot of modifications to fit my taste and current setup I have with Connections Reloaded. Maybe when I can spare some time.
Just released v1.1 of my theme Connections Reloaded. It now installs in the connections-reloaded folder. Minor update to the Readme file and few corrections in the CSS. The look still remains same as Connections. I’m working on creating multiple versions of Connections Reloaded. Coming soon to a computer near you 🙂
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.
