artsemerging 2.3 wordpress theme – customizable, and now widget compatible

Howdy all. If you remember, early last year I developed a new WordPress theme as part of the launch of SAartsEmerging.org – promoting and critiquing emerging South African artists. That site is now maintained by Bronwyn Lace and Rat Western, and you should keep an eye out for upcoming changes.

Given the popularity of this theme, I’ve decided to release a new, widget-compatible version, and you can expect all future releases to be maintained from this site. I believe the most beneficial aspect of this 2-column design is its easy customization. The zip file includes:

  • new design, with different sidebars for posts, pages and single posts – these are now customizable using WordPress’ built-in widgets
  • header and footer images using a detail of Nathaniel Stern’s Compressionist work
  • layered Photoshop file to put in your own image; includes gradient, curved edges and “pre-cut” slices (and instructions)

Download the zip file. (open source CC/GPL)

As you can see, this blog now also uses the new artsemerging theme (with a “widgetized” sidebar – note that all changes happened in the WP interface – I needed no code in any of the php files to customize this), and this coincides with the announcement of some upcoming changes around here — as I concentrate on my PhD research and writing over the next year, blogging will again pick up pace, mostly concentrating on thoughts and works related to my dissertation topic. You’ll see texts (rants?) that intersect between performance studies, art, embodiment and technology, and eventually a re-design of this whole site to match my thesis (this, over the next 4-5 months). In the meanwhile, note that “nathaniel and the non-aggressive” is no more, and this blog is henceforth to be known as “implicit art.” Enjoy the theme, and the blog, and please let me know if you encounter any problems, in the comments section.

More soon!

    It can also get kind of hairy when trying to get it to understand what a conversion is. Instead of just any click, it needs to be one specific click

    Sorry, I haven’t been able to update the theme in some time! I may get to it some time in the next few months, but can’t promise it. THe customizable k2 theme – http://getk2.com/ – is pretty similar, if you want to try it.

    Good Thanks tou admin super Worklight (as I understand it, and I am not any form of expert here), is posited on Secure Widgets. As security ‘though the layers” is going to be an issue with widgets, you know, I think they may be on to something. The next thing that people don’t often realise, is that while consumer widgets are “cool”, enterprise widgets actually save money (you know, in a way that can be measured.
