Just Released the Notepad Theme

Feb 11, 2010 104 Comments

It has been a long long time since I released a WordPress Theme. Finally, I have a new release — the Notepad theme. It is inspired by the iPhone’s Notes.app. This new theme is widget compatible with threaded comments, social media buttons, and multi-level dropdown menus. It has been tested on WordPress 2.9 with Firefox, Chrome, Safari, and IE7+. It also includes some nice CSS3 enhancement such as rounded corners and drop shadow. Preview the theme on the demo site.

    I really do appreciate such a theme since I’m looking for a well-done scribble/notebook-like one for some time now. Even though I’m not a fan of these IPhone optics I will going to use it, I guess :)

    Really like this Nick La, great work. It creates a clean, natural looking website design which is based on sound typography and complimentary colour palettes. Cute icons too ☺ I’m really looking forward to pushing CSS3, the rounded corner functionality will be particularly useful in a lot of web design situations – If only IE6 could cope eh?!

    I really like this theme and I think I’ll use it for my project’s temporary web site, with some subtle modifications. Thanks for sharing it!

    But I think it would use some typography improvements, e.g. make the text fit the lines better. I’ll share the results with you if I do it myself.

    One thing bothers me: why do you use the “Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif” font stack? If you want Arial – it’s a standard font on PC or Mac, thus putting Helvetica as the second one doesn’t make much sense. Moreover, Helvetica is a better font and Arial is usually used as a fallback, if Helvetica is unavailable.

    Would be nice to have the matching font size for the code tag. This is what i added in style.css:

    code {
    font-size: 1.2em;
    font: monospace;
    color:#301500;
    }
