TXP version: 4.3.0+
Designer: Craig Erskine
Current theme version: 4.3.0
A new admin theme from Craig Erskine created from an original concept by Jon Hicks with his kind permission of course.
Why not give it a whirl?
I have tried all the themes. This is my favorite of all.
But the most disappointing part of the theme, when I work on Chrome, in the forms or write area, the left/right sidebar are in fixed position. So when I expand the textarea, the sidebars wouldn’t budge, it just overlaps.
The best admin theme to date! Nice 1 guys!!!
Remora had gone a bit ‘sticky’ with Firefox 4 (The menus stayed expanded, so I was having a look around for aternatives and Ta-da!
I used to follow Craig’s Fireworks tutorials a few years ago, and he certainly knows his stuff – As does Jon, of course :-)
Anyway, this one is great! Looks good, works a treat.
Really nice theme….love it! :)
Lovely theme, now my default when building new Textpattern sites :)
Love this theme. Small issue… the extensions tab goes a little wonky if you have lots of extensions installed that add tabs there.
That’s a common problem with themes that retain the “table” formatting for the navigation. I did do a retake on the original Classic theme called Classic2 which moved the navigation into a “ul – li” format which works well with lots of “Extensions” tabs but aside from that I think a drop-down menu format works best in this situation.
The Site Name link to view the site doesn’t work if the site is in a subdirectory since it’s just using
Changing the href on line 25 to the following fixes it… but not sure if that will work on multisite installs.
