Koi Theme Release

Mar 29, 2010 58 Comments

I just released another new WordPress theme called Koi. It is a simplified version of my current theme. It has multi-level dropdown menus, threaded comments, multiple widget areas (1 sidebar + 3 footer), and an option page (coded by Jon Raasch) where you can manage the menus, favicon, footer tracking code, and social media buttons.

    Great!

    But…

    Why would you release a theme that is much like your current theme? Shouldn’t a designer’s personal weblog theme be unique?

      Why not? People love this design and I don’t mind sharing. :)

      Plus if you look carefully, they are different.

      Cheers to you!!

    Looks great Nick! I was thinking about doing this with my current site’s design. I bet this will spread the interwebs pretty quickly :)

    Hi Nick, it’s very good idea and your theme is very cool.
    But this theme has no “Koi fish” isn’t it?
    Your theme has the great header image and it should be better to change header image.

    Hey Nick,

    Nice theme. I’ve always been inspired by your current theme. I’m impressed that you would create such and theme and give it off for free when themes of such quality are being sold in the marketplace. I hope that you would sometime set up an online store and sell some of your best work. I’m sure that you will have hundreds getting them.

    Hi Nick,

    I love this theme so much I’m using it for my own site :)

    I’ve noticed in IE7, the footer contents is pushed to the right side of the page and gets chopped off. Do you know or does anyone know of a fix?

    Cheers,
    Adeline

    Hi Nick.
    I need help please!!!
    What I am looking for is to learn how to insert a custom logo into a header instead of the title letters. Can someone give me some step by step instructions?????
    Thanks in advance!

      Hi Matt. I’m having the same problem. I’ve tried various formats, but I only get a place hold area where the logo is supposed to appear. Can’t figure it out. It’s on the server, but doesn’t show up.

    What an elegant theme! A true stand-out!

    I’m seeing a bit of vertical crowding in the tag cloud, however, as the more frequently used tags appear so large that their text overlaps with the underline of the tags above them.

    awesome theme! I’m just trying out. ^^ really love our illustrations!

    I just think, the typography could be smaller and for that, you could get to see more of the illustration.

    greetings!

    It’s a lovely theme. Beautiful colors, artistic, asian wibes and even a retro insperation. Gives a feeling of wellbeing. Nice to the eyes as well.

    Have you tested Koi on WordPress 3.0.2? Is it safe to update? Thanks!

  48. Dec 02, 2010 @ 09:46:38

    Ben

    Just to note that we are using Koi on a 3.0.2 website with a Child Theme of Koi (gotta look how we want it) and it seems to work just fine. No whacky breakages no infighting with our plugins. Thanks n.design

    Hi! Thanks for share a great theme like Koi, hope it brings a lot of new audience to your works.
    I’m using Koi in my blog, with some modifications; in fact, i’m still refining it, according with my needs.

    The swap site name for logo image is not working. My guess is that it is not a CSS problem. Will be poking around in the code tomorrow and hope to have an answer.

    Logo issue: Your cache directory needs to be writeable by WordPress. That would be: yourpath+ /wp-content/themes/koi/cache
