Testing out a new dark theme

Post by Bluesplayer » Fri Feb 15, 2013 1:23 am

I have tried all ways to alter my theme to cope with very dark products but wasn't satisfied with any of them. Decided instead to not fight the dark images but build the site around them - make it VERY dark. What do you think of my latest incarnation of my site - BLACK!

See signature for site.

PS: I have created a new theme for this instead of overwriting the last one.

Incase I change it again here is a screen shot:

Very nice.
The only thing I would change is decreasing the font-size of the rating from 14px to 13px.

Thanks.

Will have a look at the rating font size now.

The theme could probably benefit from some images somewhere. Will refine it as time goes by.

UPDATE
You are right again. Ratings looks a lot better now at 13px. Cheers.

Lol. The black theme is getting the thumbs down with my testers. Too dark and depressing for this type of site apparently. They want light greens and yellows. Looks like another attempt at a new suitable theme is in the pipeline. I suppose I could tidy up the code and submit it here for a free theme. May as well.
