Searching for a new, versatile WP theme

I’ve been browsing around (aimlessly) looking at WordPress themes.

Uploaded a couple and tried them out, but there’s always something that I don’t like. Typography, comments, additional plugins I need to use the theme. After a while I return to my 3 column version of K2.

What I don’t like are hard-coded navigation or list links.

I guess, I’m looking for a simple, minimalist theme. Maybe a tumbler kind of layout which focuses on the posts.

The current short list:

  • Barthelme
  • Bogart
  • MiniBits
  • Grid Focus Public

(update) I found a theme i like.

I used Luke Howell’s events calendar plugin: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/events-calendar/

I know you’ve already found one, but here’s another to take a look at anyway. Another masterpiece by Chris Pearson: Neoclassical.

Look, look, I start to make typically English spelling mistakes. I guess it’s the bad Etsy influence. 😉 Of course was I saying “its”.

Oha. Definitely a change. 🙂
I set up a little blog for a client recently, and I found “Palaam” to be quite handy and versatile (I think it’s 3-columns version is called “Seashore”). It did require additional plugins to realize my project, but they were ready in seconds and worked smoothly (Amazon widget, sidebar gallery, events calendar).
“White as Milk” is very zen-like and nice to look at, but it isn’t widget-aware, and therefore not the choice for people who have a lot of off-site stuff to be pulled into the sidebars.
