    Thanks! I’m glad that you like it. Please, feel free to contact me if you find any bugs or just have any ideas about the template. It still has so much room for improvement…

    Super nice! Consider throwing my own layout and make place for this one… if you could place bets on the winner of this competition I would… you know what I mean. Very well crafted!

    Great theme. I have to use IE6 at work and the buttons in the header don’t really render until you mouse over them. Probably some weird glitch, but thought it might help for release 2.0!

    Ryan, does it behave like that all the time? Please try to reload the page after clearing the cache and see if the glitch recurs, then inform me with the results.

    IE6 on my WinXP installation seems to render everything just fine.

    I’ve just installed this and really like it. I’m looking forward to the new header packs. Wonderful creation.

    comfortable 3 columns “right-right” designs are quite rare. Your one is a blessing. Thanks.

    Do you think it would be possible to fix/glue the right columns to the top ? So they don’t disappear when scrolling down and only content scrolls .

    Andreas Viklund managed to do that with a left column without frames there :

    But with a big right block, I don’t know.

    position: fixed;

    That will do it easily. But it does not work in IE. I used a JavaSctipt to make it work in IE with my template.

    brilliant theme, great work.

    i just installed textpattern to see if it’s any better than wordpress and it is, it totally floors it!

    any news on when the theme pack is going to be released, so want to use this!

    Sorry for not justifying you expectations, guys.

    The backgrounds pack will not be released soon because of the exam session in my university that will last for the whole month or maybe even longer.

    Hi there =)

    Anyone who knows what may be wrong in my installation of Serene? I think it’s something with the “header”-form or some configuration in the sections that did go wrong, but I’m not 100% sure.

    It’s a beautiful theme, but I just can’t figure it out how to install it… :(
