New WordPress Theme at The Nubby Admin!

I wasn’t terribly happy with my original theme. After hunting around for a few days, I think I found one that I’ll stick with for a while. I was hoping to find a good three column theme, but the text column was never wide enough for me.

Even this theme’s text column is a bit too skinny for me (and the text is too small). The theme is the free Typebased by WooThemes.

What do you think? Is is pleasant enough or is there an element that is too bothersome for you? Do you have any theme suggestions? I’m really looking for a wide, three column personal blog theme that has some space for ads (gotta pay the hosting fees) but gives a good wide column to the content.

It doesn’t have to be free, it just has to be good. Methinks I’ll peruse…

    Very clean, and colors are nice. I agree the content column is a little small, and the date column seems to waste a lot of white space. Could that be caused by your name not being wrappable?

    I didn’t even notice that my nickname might be the culprit. However, looking at the demo of the template, I think it’s just coincidence that my publishing name is the same width as that column.

    I’m really looking for a good, dark, wide three column design. Like I said, I’m not against paying for one if it’s great. All the free themes seem to be missing a certain ‘oomph’. This is probaly te best free one I’ve found so far.

      That’s a shame, you could probably compress that bar by at least a third, and expand the body area.

      You might want to check out or @wpshout on twitter, often see mentions of themes there, some are $$ others free.
