Life Rocks! 2.0 has a New Look


Life Rocks! 2.0 has a New Look

As mentioned in my previous post, I was working on a theme for this blog for quite some time. As I was not able to find time to get it working, it took me more than a month to get the theme running. Well, I’m not a php expert although I had learned it few years back, so there could be bugs in this theme.

So presenting the new look of Life Rocks! 2.0.


Features of new theme;

  • Better layout of posts and excerpts
  • Better readability
  • Improved navigation and much more
  • Theme tested in IE6, IE7, Firefox, Safari, Flock and Opera.

Please share your views on the new theme and also report any bugs and issues like alignment etc. Also, any new suggestions and improvements also welcome.

    Tabs on sidebar is Javascript and not a WP plugin.

    Wow, looks great!

    I’m slow to come around to the magazine-style look on blog homepages, but I really like the single post pages!

    Great design buddy 🙂 Really looks a lot more professional and magazine style 😎

    January 18, 2008 at 5:33 pm

    Really good! Do you do Theme Design for other blogs too? 🙂

    By the way, what font is it? IMO, it’s not good on the eyes.

  32. nirmaltv

    January 18, 2008 at 6:56 pm

    The font is Trebuchet MS and I feel its a standard font and same as the one in my earlier theme. I think its showing diffrently in MAC.

    January 18, 2008 at 8:12 pm

    The theme is fabulous Nirmal! Well designed I must say! I just wanted to point out that the signup to receive updates image on the top has a mis spelling!!

    Cheers on the new theme!

  34. nirmaltv

    January 18, 2008 at 8:34 pm

    Thanks for pointing it out, I think it was a typo. 🙂 I’ll change it soon.

    Awesome Nirmal.
    This theme is simple unique. Different from those usual 2-3 column themes. Header is really looking nice.
    The banner ad in header may be shifted slightly upwards to better align it with your tag line under “Life Rocks 2.0”.
    These days I am struggling to find time for blogging at a regular pace. So couldn’t visit your blog often.

  39. Ashwin

    January 20, 2008 at 12:34 pm

    No Nirmal, the font (both in posts and comments) looks difference now. Earlier it looked fine (I was on Mac that time too), but it’s weird and not easy on the eyes.

    Just try to view your site in Mac, you’ll know what I’m talking about.

  41. nirmaltv

    January 20, 2008 at 3:49 pm

    Thanks for the suggestion and appreciation.

    Will check it out. Actually I dont have any Mac, but will check the font issue.

    Thanks for the comment.

    Outstanding design buddy! I love it. A great start to a new year.

    Nice theme Nirmal. I really liked the home page design. Great work. Meanwhile…

    Few bugs…

    tested using firefox/XP

    in the homepage the small topics of each post which have multiline are cut in the second line…

  46. nirmaltv

    January 21, 2008 at 11:33 am

    Thanks for the appreciation.

    I didnt get your bug, can you pls mail me the screenshot?

    Gr8 look here…
    I was amazed at the look.

  50. Thilak

    January 23, 2008 at 10:04 pm

    Looks impressive, especially the homepage. The sitemeter chicklet inside the footer is flooding out. Try adding display:none; to hide it.

  51. nirmaltv

    January 24, 2008 at 10:08 am

    Thanks for the suggestion. I’ll implement that.

  52. Joel

    January 25, 2008 at 5:57 am

    Hey Nirmal…this looks cool…congratulations on the new layout…maybe you should increase the font size for the post contents…its kinda look very tiny…I am not sure if thats only for me or for everyone…

  53. nirmaltv

    January 26, 2008 at 10:10 am

    I’ll check and increase the font. Thanks for the comments. Nice to see you after a long time.

  54. Ravichandra

    January 26, 2008 at 2:09 pm

    Hey… this theme looks gud. The first thing that caught my sight is the two line layout for the blogs.

    Good work Nirmal. 😮

    Until a few weeks ago, I hadn’t visited for quite some time, but when I saw the new theme, I thought it really made the site very cool and very professional!

    Well done!
