The 2nd theme to be available for v8

Petrikuhr said

1. the one thing which most cannot commit to design is 'time', design takes a hell of a lot of time.
2. Robotic … with OCPortal has taken me so far around 19 hours and counting …
3. The base templates must be pretty much perfect …
4. I would value highly any help any one can give me with testing themes before they are released …
5. This is something which should be handled on my own site as opposed to here.

1. Concur.

2. Yes, I can imagine it has - and will continue to do so!

3. Absolutely.

4. Work out a way to pass the ZIPped files and I am sure you will have several takers to 'test' for you.

5. Yes, of course. Hence my offer to do the testing on one of my 'test' installations.

Over to you, but only when you're ready … !!

Take my advice. I'm not using it!

Looks AWESOME! Really like this theme. Clean and stylish. This is great to see for ocPortal. Many have mentioned the lack of theme choices being a hindrance to popularizing ocPortal and with choices like these (and as Bob mentioned others stepping up) that image should change. This is great! Thanks for the work your putting in (I myself know it is a lot hehe).

It seems more difficult than it really is Fletch, the one thing which most cannot commit to design is 'time', design takes a hell of a lot of time. Of course then we must make our designs work on a site, with all the tricks and surprises awaiting us.
 
 
Fletch, you are way too modest about your designs. If there is a thing you are deeply committed to and that we all have in common, it is our recognition that theemeing takes time. The final results of our efforts posted here to share with everyone are testimonies of our loyalty to the ocPortal  product and a desire to create something which will enhance its popularity. It is I think the same willingness to invest time for this pursuit that motivates  many outstanding contributors like BobS, Temp1024, Eric, mythus, Harry-S and countless others.

You can count on me when you are ready to open-up this theme on your site, Petrikuhr.

One of the best "features" of ocPortal is the great community of users. We've had that for some time but it seems to be growing at a much quicker pace. And, we are finally attracting more people who can do design projects for ocPortal - this is a huge improvement.

OcPortal lacks little but having new theme options is going to create a greater interest in ocP. So, I say again with even greater enthusiasm:

GO THEMERS!!!

Bob
