Hi Guys

I'm no theme maker, coder or anything else like that but in my spare time i have developed a theme for no reason what so ever other than to help someone else and to learn how to do it.
I'd appreciate some help and some direction so hopefully one day it can go in the repository.

The website is here: www.fore.me.uk (not a working website but as i have been messing with the theme i have added stuff to it.)

Theme download is here: www.fore.me.uk/uploads/fore-me-simple-modern.zip

The core idea was to give it a punchy modern looking theme but keeping its functionality as simple as possible.

Criticize it, give me suggestions or any help with any bugs you may find.
All help is received with gratitude.

Very nice work! I like it.

The only suggestion that I would make is to keep it consistent across modules: in all modules you have the title on a black background, except News, which is black on white.

Did you see the recent tutorial on converting themes to XOOPS?

Thank you.

I'm working on all the modules to make them more consistent and news shouldn't be far behind. I only put that module on yesterday but have already started on it.

Im having problems with the blocks and them not adhering to width as a '%'. I guess its because they are inheriting size from somewhere else other that the page size.
Any ideas? When i enable the side bar one of the top or bottom blocks become bigger than the rest unless i state a maximum size in 'px', which intern breaks using the '%'. Make sense??

Tried the link you but it appears the site is down at the moment or at least it is for me. Will keep checking. Thanks.

Updated it to use 1, 2 or 3 columns as per most themes.

I have mad some big changes now. I feel its getting much better. What do you think?

Its no where near yet and i have lots of work to make it consistant across every page but you can get the gist of how its going.
I will update the download file ASAP.
